I failed to mention (or they added it later), that there is also a MIXED EPEE OPEN.
The Piedmont Challenge is an Open, Junior, and Cadet event.

Gabe and Coach Gerhard plan on attending. Most likely we’ll be competing just on Saturday, Coach Gerhard will do the open foil, and not yet sure which event Gabe will do.

After July 30, no registration can be done through AskFRED. Furthermore, any registrations after this date are subject to a $200 surcharge, per USA Fencing guidelines. Contact piedmontchallenge@gmail.com for more information or to register after July 30.
