No Tournament Feb 3rd & 4th – Instead Debate Super Bowl-ing on Feb 4th

Happy New Years!

As you may already have heard, we will not be hosting a tournament on February, 3rd & 4th. The district didn’t approve the dates and we couldn’t find an alternate location in time.
Our next tournament was planned for March 10th & 11th at Oak Knoll. However, there are some facility double scheduling issues and the MPAEF auction moved up to the 10th from the 17th. We are in the process of trying to find a workable solution.

To make up for it a little bit, we decided to have a fun social event for EVERYONE instead. We hope you can join us for Debate Super Bowl-ing on Feb 4th from 3 – 5 pm.
Connect with others in our awesome debate community and watch the 2018 Super Bowl on 80″ HD TV’s, while enjoying debate games and other fun activitiesEvent Page

Info for the 2nd Annual Debate Jump and 3rd Annual Debate Skate, as well as 2018 Debate Summer Camps will be coming soon!
