Other areas where you can help. In addition to board officers, we also seek other volunteers. Maybe you’d like to search the Internet for items of interest to the general division membership to update our Facebook page. If you have website skills, our IT guy/webmaster can use help. If you are familiar with the USFA website or Athlete’s Handbook, maybe you can respond to people contacting the board, asking about qualification to national events and other questions. Some of our Division clubs need representatives to sit on the division board. And of course, three or four times a year, we need volunteers to help run our RYCs and qualifiers, be it helping with registration or checking equipment or preparing medals.

The Oregon Division is a great one. We invite you to have fun lending a hand so that our division continues to run smoothly now and in the coming year.

IMPORTANT: Pay for Summer National Qualifier Online Now
Please read if you are planning to participate in our 2015 Oregon Division Summer Nationals Qualifier, as some details regarding payment have been modified below and on our AskFred listing.

 It’s no Joke! The pre-registration and pre-payment deadline for our Qualifier is this Friday night, April 3, 11:59pm. If you sign up and pay on-line by that time, your discounted registration fees are $15 per fencer, plus $15 per event (i.e., a total of $30 for one event).  You can sign-up and pay on-line after that time, but your fees will increase to triple registration fee and double event fee (through April 9, 11:59pm). Starting April 10, you may fence with a fee of double registration fee and triple event fee (this is the only circumstance in which you will be allowed to pay at the door – please bring cash or a check, made out to the Oregon Division, credit cards not accepted).

 In the case that you pre-pay, and then must withdraw, the following is the Division refund policy:

·       By the close of on-time pre-registration – Full refund minus $5 because the Division is liable for the AskFred % fee.

·       Up to 11:59pm the Thursday before the event – Event fee refund only (must be a request via email to the board.)

·       Day of Event – Event fee refund only upon a verifiable medical withdrawal before event start.

·       No refunds after the fact.


Please see listing for more details and to sign up today! Thanks!
