2) The Tier 3 requirement to have 2 more years to fence at that category will be ignored.
3) The selection period will extend back over the last 12 months from the closing date of 18th March, taking into account that the stated " least two of the following..." required events may not have been attended.

2018-03-06 20:32 - Mixed Events - Commonwealth Preparation
Posted by HopkinsAmanmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZAfter receiving feedback on its February decision to trial mixed (male and female) events at national competitions in 2018, the FeNZ Board has decided to postpone introducing the trial.  The FeNZ Board remains committed to giving female fencers opportunities to gain more competitive experience domestically but acknowledges the legitimate concerns raised.

Certain aspects of the trial have to be worked through further to ensure the safety and welfare of all participating fencers as well as understanding and minimising the impact on ranking points and potential selections.  Given that the initiative was aimed at helping female fencers prepare for important international competitions later this year, the Board will undertake its consultation and review with urgency, to allow a revised proposal to be considered at the Board’s next meeting on 1 April.

2018-02-18 16:19 - Mixed Events - Commonwealth Preparation
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZIn order to provide greater opportunities for fencers to prepare for the forthcoming Commonwealth Championships, both Cadet/Junior and Senior, all FeNZ events i.e. NI, SI, President's Cup, National Championships and national Cadet (U17), and Junior  (U20) Championships will incorporate a mixed gender event in place of the Men's events.

Where female fencers enter a mixed event, they must also enter the corresponding women's event for that weapon, where there are sufficient numbers (min 6 fencers) for an event to be held.

Regions have been asked to follow the same approach for their regional and local competitions.

The effectiveness of this approach will be reviewed by the FeNZ Board at the end of the year.

2018-02-10 14:32 - President's Cup 2018 - date change
