High School (LD/PF)
November 7, 2015
Dear Lincoln-Douglas & Public Forum Debate Coach,
The William Fremd High School Debate Team would like to (cordially, warmly, affectionately, genially) invite you to our annual LD and PF tournament on Saturday, November 7, 2015. We can promise you a well-run tournament with some of the best competition in Illinois at the novice, junior varsity, and varsity levels.
We will run five rounds in Lincoln-Douglas on the November/December NSDA resolution. We will also run five rounds in Public Forum on the November NSDA debate topic. Current topics can be found here: http://www.speechanddebate.org/topics
The top five competitors in each division will receive inordinately large awards. Speaker awards will be given to the top four speakers in each division.
Last year, we were at capacity and used close to 115 rooms. Registration must be completed online ASAP and no later than Friday, October 30th at 5:00 PM. No additions will be allowed after that point (only name substitutions). Drops after that point are fine, but fees will be final on Friday, October 29th at 5:00 PM. Last-minute changes can be made on the morning of the tournament. Intent to attend can be communicated as soon as possible.
NOTE: Because increased turnout is anticipated, we will preemptively cap entries at 4 entries per division. Excess entries will be placed on a waiting list and will be taken off no later than Wednesday, November 5th at 9:00 PM. Please prioritize your entries A,B,C,D, etc. We were able to take several entries off the waiting list last year.
All entries will be placed on a waiting list once room caps are reached. Please submit your entries ASAP to secure your spots.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the tournament director at email@example.com or 847-644-7202.
We hope to see you in November.
Martin Zacharia, Head Coach
Jacqueline Dickens, Assistant Coach
