Arrow I need a favor, please

I would appreciate if you would sign this petition. If you don't know, I happen to be a high school Saber Fencing coach.

I have students who fence in both school conference and USFA events. If this proposed rule goes into effect my kids will be competing under 2 different sets of rules, making a training nightmare.

Even fencing clubs oppose this rule change. You do NOT have to be a fencer to sign the petition! Please do me, and my students, a big favor and sign the petition. You will find it at the link below.

Thanks all, we are over 350 now. Still a long way to go but I appreciate your help.

But this rule is so dumb it must have been conceived by a drunken baby.

Just hit 371 signatures.


I know the kids on the team will thank all of your for your support on this. Hard to describe to someone who doesn't fully understand the sport, but the new rule will make it nearly impossible to learn & adapt to your opponent. For younger fencers this is a critical skill to learn.

If we can kill the adoption of this rule, and it is seriously possible we can, then the sport will be better off.

Looks like we stalled out at 415 signatures. Has been at 415 for almost 4 hours.

I really do appreciate every signature so far but the kids & I could use more.

So to recap, I am a high school Saber Fencing coach. I have students who fence in both school conference and USFA events. A new proposed rule may go into effect which will have my kids competing under 2 different sets of rules, making a training nightmare. Even fencing clubs oppose this rule change. You do NOT have to be a fencer to sign the petition! One set of rules will be for the high school conference. Another set of rules will be for USFA events. Worse yet, the new rule is scheduled to kick in at the MIDDLE OF THE SEASON.

Please do me, and my students, a big favor and sign the petition. You will find it at the link >>> https://www.change.org/p/usa-fencing...or-usa-fencing

We are now at 427 on the petition.

If anyone else can share the petition on their Facebook and ask their friends/family/pets to sign it I would greatly appreciate it.

Or if you can spam it to all your co-workers and pester them until they submit and sign, that would be good too.

Of if you haven't signed it yet and could do that, that works too!
