SC Division Announcement

The SC Division JO Qualifiers are scheduled for Sunday, December 11th in Columbia, SC.

  • The tournaments will be held at The Katie & Irwin Kahn Jewish Community Center in Columbia, SC.
  • The sign-up criteria and deadlines are different between the two tournaments. The JO Qualifier events have an early pre-registration cutoff date.

Note that if circumstances change, we may push the cutoff to a later date. All fencers must pre-register AND pre-pay online on askFRED for JO Qualifier events. There will be NO WALK-INS permitted.
  • The Bookends tournament events are open for all USFA fencers, not just SC Division fencers. Walk-ins will be permitted. Pre-payment online is not required but is encouraged and is discounted. Payment at the venue will cost more.
