July 21st
Some of our fencers headed down to Savannah for some summer fun: competing in the 14th annual Sabre in the Surf. Fencing sabre on the beach of Tybee Island is a great experience. Hot sand, the cool ocean, and best of all, lots of sabres.

Seventh Annual Yellow Jacket Open

Thank you to everyone who attended the Seventh Annual Yellow Jacket Open!


This year, 237 unique fencers across 49 unique clubs participated in our tournament. Our epee events remain the largest out of the three weapons at 106 unique fencers. The Yellow Jacket Open has also, for the first time, sponsored its first ever A4 event in the Mixed Epee event - an 84-person event with 20 fencers earning or renewing a rating!

The tournament would not have been run without our 39 YJFC volunteers. And please give the biggest thanks to our tournament committee, who have spent the past 3 months planning for the tournament non-stop!

Again, thank you for making the Seventh Annual Yellow Jacket Open a great success through your participation. We hope to see you again next year!
