Dedication: Alfred Knappe was a competitor in Germany before coming to Canada in 1955. He
began coaching at the UNB fencing club in 1966, was founder of and served as first President of
the New Brunswick Fencing Association from 1969 to 1972. Alfred was known to several
generations of fencers as a dedicated, hard-working builder of the sport of fencing. He passed
away in 2010.
The Alfred Knappe Team Trophy is awarded to the winning team in the open category.
Three weapon format for Open & Cadet: Teams are comprised of one foilist, one epeeist &
one sabreur, with any combination of male & female competitors or exclusive of either. Clubs
are encouraged to submit representative teams. If a club cannot field a full team, fencers from
another club may be added. Each bout is fenced to multiples of five hits or 3 minutes with the
score accumulating to a maximum of 45 hits. If there are five teams or fewer, there will be one
pool fenced. If there are more than five teams in an event, they will be divided into pools. The
top four seeded teams will be placed into an elimination tableau to determine the top three teams.
Single weapon format for Under 13 (Y12): Teams are comprised of three foilists with any
combination of male & female competitors or exclusive of either. Clubs are encouraged to
