Dear Debate Colleagues,
On behalf of Washington High School, Franklin Middle School, the George Washington Debate Society, and the WHS Friends of Forensics, you and your debaters are cordially invited to attend the annual Iowa Caucus Debate Tournament to be held October 24-26, 2014. The Caucus will offer debate competition in varsity and novice Policy Debate, varsity Public Forum, and varsity Lincoln Douglas. We are pleased to be a Tournament of Champions qualifier at semifinals for both Lincoln Douglas and Policy. We encourage attending teams to stay at the Marriott Hotel on Collins Road, approximately six minutes from the tournament sites. Elimination rounds on Sunday will be held at the Marriott as well. Reservations will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The hotel can be contacted at 1-800-396-2153 - be sure to ask for the Iowa Caucus Debates rate.
As usual, our awards for the 2014 Caucus will include the impressive George Washington busts. More than just great trophies, though, the Washington tournament can promise high quality debate, good judging, great food, hospitality, and balmy October weather. Plan to attend.
We look forward to seeing you!
Warren Sprouse, Director of Debate Ben Hamburger, Assistant Debate Coach
