The Open Mixed Sabre event will be the Alex Jeffrey Memorial Sabre Event this year.

Alex Jeffrey was the head coach of Beaches Sabre Club of Troy, was a member of the Canadian National Sabre Team and he was Head Coach of the Canadian Women’s Sabre Team. His greatest gift was the ability to put a smile on the faces of those he met, and those that knew him. Alex will be remembered by the Fencing Community throughout the world for his contributions to the sport and he will be remembered by all who knew him as a man who always walked his own path.

The format for all of the Open Events is a round of mixed pools followed by a mixed direct elimination table and a women’s direct elimination table. No extra fee is charged for participation in the womens table.

Entry fee for all senior events is $40/event if preregistered by 8/3/12 for the Open events, $45 at the door.
