Following the conversations in Paris, on the FIE Congress, with several officials of National Federations, herewith I send you the available information on the 1st Temple Tournament – an event to celebrate the 900 years of the Knights Templar which will take place in Tomar – Portugal, 13th to 16th June 2019. (Details)
This event will include a Veteran competition on epee (M/F), but it will have several other points of interest for fencers from all over the world – like a tour to some of the most relevant Templar sites in Europe, a Medieval Banquet on the Convent of Christ, a wine tasting session and a conference about the Templar Order.
As you can see in the attached PowerPoint presentation, there will be special participation fees for the “early birds”, with a 25% discount for those who confirm their participation before January 31st.
Considering all this, the Portuguese Fencing Federation would be very grateful if you could pass this information for your Veteran fencers.
Best regards and wishes of a Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2019,
