In addition to resources for other clubs, a common question is where to get gear or USFA memberships. Here are links for some of these resources. In terms of links to companies selling gear, CDE only offers these as a convenience and does not particularly endorse any one company over another.
USFA Membership - Recent changes to USFA membership provides multiple levels. Yearly Access membership is included with the first
semester of each season (July to June) that one fences with Cumberland D'Escrime and allows for one to compete
in local tournaments. Competitive membership is required for regional/USFA sponsored tournaments.
