Hey All, I lost the dates for the Natl. RR. Trying to plan that out for next year at Rice but I forgot when it was supposed to be and if they were going to change it to a 3 day experience?

Thanks,
matt


#15

National Round Robin should be March 3-4. Might move to a 3 day schedule since it looks like there will be growth. Need to talk to Konrad and gather the opinions of the 2017 participants for a final decision (in addition to talk to Dave about room availability).

From Trevor:

We’d like to invite you to the 2017 Golden Gate Invitational on October 28-29 at UC Berkeley. As usual, we’ll be hosting a 2-day NPDA parli tournament. We anticipate keeping our 2016 schedule and offering 6 rounds plus outrounds, but will have final details once we send out the formal invitation. And as always, please reach out to us for any financial accommodations (particularly for small/student-run teams), and we’ll see what we can do.

James ‘Al’ Johnson Memorial Speech and Debate Tournament, September 22-24th 2017, NPDA debate tournament (5 prelims and appropriate elims)
Saw this on Forensicstournament, might want to check with Julian but just wanted to pass it on!


#19

Can confirm that the Northwest Warm-up will be Sept. 23-24 at Bellevue College.


#20

I am just now seeing that the dates for Berkeley have changed. We (the PNW region) adjusted our regional tournament calendar based on the original dates so that some of our programs could attend. It is understandable that dates change, I am just wondering how stable these new dates are. TIA
