    This is the second year we are hosting this tournament series, and we're excited for the first event. We already have 52 fencers pre-registered in all events, but 40 of them are in the Open Mixed Epee, which looks like it will be a strong A2. We will have an official armorer on hand for equipment check and repair throughout the weekend. Certified referees will oversee bouts, and we will even be giving away $100 CASH to one lucky participant. Our goal is to bring high level fencing competitions to Nashville which are accessible to many fencers from the surrounding areas.

    What is The Music City Series?

    Most tournaments come and go in just a few hours, and you can be stuck with a bad result if you had an off day. Other fencers have one good day, and then have trouble reaching that peek again. The Music City Series is designed to remove luck, good or bad, and rewards fencers for their consistency, and helps them to establish a culture of success over a longer period of time.

    How Does it Work?

    The Music City Series is comprised of four separate tournaments spread throughout the season, each with their own Champion and Finalists. Competitors earn cumulative points based on the size of the tournament and where they finish, with the Grand Finale Tournament providing "bonus" points to competitors.

    Consistency is key! A fencer who wins one tournament, but only makes the top 8 in the other tournaments can easily be passed over by a fencer who has consistently finished in the top 4 at each tournament. This is just one example, but there are many other possible scenarios. A fencer who consistently medals, but misses a tournament could lose his top spot on the points list. Adversely, a fencer can miss one tournament or finish poorly, then finish near the top in each remaining tournament, including the Grand Finale, and could earn enough points to become the Overall Series Champion!

    Each tournament brings a unique element of excitement, not only to see who wins, but to see who will end up at the top of the rolling points list!

    The Grand Prizes

    In the inaugural season (2015-16) for The Music City Series, we awarded each of the Overall Series Champions (both in Foil and Epee) with the Grand Prize of a brand new Special Edition Epiphone electric guitar & guitar stand. This year's Grand Prizes haven't been announced, but we promise you won't be disappointed!

    Medals will be given to finalists in each of the four tournaments, in all events.
