Southeast Renaissance Fencing Open 2024

June 7 @ 8:00 am - June 9 @ 5:00 pm

Welcome to the 10th holding of the South East Renaissance Fencing Open!!!
We shall be opening registration for the event in the next week.
As in previous years, we shall be at KSU Marietta Gym, this year from June 7th-9th.
Having listened to the feedback from last year, we have some changes and updates to the event.
– Saturday shall be Longsword only. We will be doing the Tiers A, B, and C again this year.
– We will only be doing First Blood Rapier and Conventional Rapier. Conventional Rapier shall be updated slightly to differentiate it more from First Blood and hopefully give fencers more fencing time.
– We have already started Director training for SERFO 24 among those in the local clubs who have volunteered to help out. Our goal is to improve the quality, clarity, and conformity of the judging this year in response to issues we experienced in 2023.
– We have also started planning on how to improve the bullpen, provide updates to fencers during the event, etc.
– The rules book shall be updated and reformatted to make it easier to read through and understand
– There will be new medals.
– Etc.
The Tournaments being held this year are:
Under Represent Genders Longsword – 32 (Soft upper limit)
Sabre – 32 (This is a semi-invitational where we shall pick from those interested. We shall give you plenty of notice of who is accepted)
Open Longsword – 128 (Hard limit. There will be a waitlist)
Tier A – 36 fencers
Tier B – 44 fencers
Tier C – 48 fencers
First Blood Rapier – 52 (Hard limit. There will be a waitlist)
Conventional Rapier – 60 (Hard limit. There will be a waitlist)
Sword and Buckler – 56 (Hard limit. There will be a waitlist)
For those who do not know, the KSU Marietta campus is located in a great spot with many restaurants only a few minutes drive north on the same road as the entrance. Plus, Marietta downtown is less than a 10 minute drive away. There are plenty of hotels and AirBnBs within a close driving distance of the venue.
Due to inflation and added costs from the venue and insurance, we have to slightly raise the cost of the event for this year.
Cost for Event:
– Weekend Early Registration – as always, registration costs for SERFO includes registration into as many tournaments as you wish to compete in (until May 25th) – $100
– Weekend Registration after this day, as well as at the door (from May 26 to event date) – $120
– Single Day Registration – $75
– T-Shirt – $20
We look forward to seeing you at SERFO 24 to celebrate our 10th anniversary in holding the event. It is an exciting thing to be able to say!
