I just started to compete last year, and I have noticed that veteran competitions in the tri-state area often occur on the same date, so vet fencers have to choose where they will go-which results in fewer entries and/or cancelled tournaments. There's just not that many of us to go around. Then why would any club owner try to schedule more vet tournaments? It also seems that certain venues are favored, which could, of course, be for many reasons. I want to support clubs that are trying to add vet tournaments to their competition schedules.One club owner I spoke to wanted to host a vet tournament, but felt the entries just weren't there. Just wondered what the wise experienced vets think.
