November 2, 2013
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 2, 2013. We are not a Tournament of Champions qualifier, but 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 preliminary and elimination rounds in Lincoln-Douglas on the November/December NFL resolution. We will also run preliminary and elimination rounds in Public Forum on the November NFL debate topic. Qualifiers for elimination rounds and top speakers in each division will receive inordinately large awards.
The tab room will be run by an all-star staff including Carol Harms of Belleville East High school, Lainee McGraw of Carl Sandburg High School, and fellow District 211 colleague Darrell Robin of Schaumburg High School.
Registration must be completed online by Friday, October 25th at 5:00 PM. Drops after that point are fine, but fees will be final on Thursday, October 31st at 9:00 AM (we were nearly overcapacity last year and need accurate numbers, so please update entries by then). Last-minute changes can be made on the morning of the tournament. Intent to attend can be communicated as soon as possible.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the head coach at firstname.lastname@example.org or via cell at 847-644-7202.
We hope to see you in November.
Martin Zacharia, Head Coach
Christopher Caton, Assistant Coach
Dorothy Robak, Assistant Coach
Yes, our trophies are big.
