Entrants List Status

I am appearing on the Entrants list as “Registered” for some of my events but not all - why?
As the individual events at JOs require qualification, your status will appear as “Registered” until your entry has been confirmed (“Approved”).  Once your entry has been confirmed, the system will generate an email updating you on the change in entry status.

Please check your preliminary seeding prior to the day of your event. Seeding is based on classifications received as of February 1, 2016.  Please report any discrepancies to J.Murch@usfencing.org.

On the day of your event, please double check your seeding on the monitors in the venue. Please report any discrepancies to the Bout Committee prior to the close of registration for your event.  No changes will be made by the BC after the close of registration.
