Hangover Classic 2018 Final Call!!!!!

Posted on Updated on

The Hangover Classic is officially closed on AskFred.  Thank you so much to those who have registered and we look forward to seeing you this weekend at the Richmond Fencing Club.

We understand that perhaps you’ve been asleep, hungover, working, or just got back to your Spring Semester of Uni.  We’d love to have a few more people because some events are so close to becoming nicely rated events – specifically, Senior Mixed Saber and Div III Mixed Saber, but there are others.

Check it out HANGOVER OPEN 2018

If you’re interested LAST MINUTE,  email the Organizer through AskFred and we can negotiate the terms!  🙂

Have a great weekend and see you there!
