Master of Arms Tournament

Pauls weapons

Queensland is celebrating World Fencing Day on Saturday, 9th September with a Master of Arms tournament at Yeronga.
Fencing starts at 11:00am.
Fencers will compete in all three weapons (epee, foil and sabre) in randomly drawn pools. Weapons used in direct elimination bouts are decided by a coin toss.
This is a mixed gender, multi-age tournament with fencers handicapped according to their ability. The emphasis is on fun (but there might be a trophy…)
QFA can help with loan gear for those who don’t own all weapons, masks and lames. Make sure you to register and let us know what gear you’ll need to join in.
You might be able to pick up some cheap kit at our swap meet which is running on the day.
Then a party! There’ll be a sausage sizzle and a giant cake to share, plus a balloon-popping championship and other games for non-fencers.
We’ll also announce the winner of our photo competition.
Cost to enter the Master of Arms tournament is $20 (free for senior and development squad members) which includes free sausage sizzle and cake.

Photo competition

Web sizeThe International Fencing Federation is encouraging fencers and friends to support World Fencing Day on their social media accounts.
QFA's getting on the bandwagon with a competition.
Have your photo taken in your fencing gear in an unusual or iconic location and post to your Facebook or Instagram account by midday on 9th September to be in the running.
Use the hashtags 
#fencingday
#allforfencing 
#qldfencing 
You can be the model or the photographer, it doesn’t matter. It’s the photo and social share we’re rewarding.
The best photo, judged by a panel of three from the QFA Management Committee, wins movie vouchers for two people to Palace Cinemas and will feature in QFA promotional material. 
The best twelve photos will be used to create a 2018 Fencing Calendar. 
So put your thinking caps on and get snapping. 
Sitting in a uni lecture theatre in whites and mask? We dare you to. Catching a bus in your kit? We know you can do it. Having a bout at the Mt Coot-Tha lookout, surrounded by tourists? At least you’d be guaranteed to have your photo taken.
Photos must be posted to social media with ALL THREE hashtags by midday on Saturday 9th September.
