+Again this year – Team Epee! Due to the strength of the epee events we have added a mixed team event to allow fencers more bouts against competitors of similar abilities. The format will be 3 person teams with 45 touch team bouts. Teams will be divided into pools of similar strength with no DE’s. Pools will be self refereed and there will be no Heartland Circuit points or awards for team events. This event is to be held strictly for your enjoyment, please treat it as such.
