Dear Debate Colleagues,
On behalf of Washington and Kennedy High Schools, 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 21-23, 2016. 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 for both Lincoln Douglas and Policy. We encourage attending teams to stay at the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Cedar Rapids, approximately five minutes from the tournament sites. Elimination rounds on Sunday will be held at the Doubletree as well.
As usual, our awards for the 2016 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!
