Joe Patten has asked me to post this.  I hope we'll have a great turnout for what was an amazing tournament last year.

JERSEY SHORE INVITATIONAL AT MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY (Jan 28-29)

We are pleased to announce the invitation to participate in the 2nd Annual Jersey Shore Invitational at Monmouth University to be held from Jan 28-29, 2012.   This year's tournament will feature six preliminary rounds of competition including five on Saturday, one on Sunday morning, and elimination rounds to follow. 


We will also be hosting a beach party on Friday night that includes juice bar, light refreshments, music, and a bonfire on the beach (with fire marshal supervision).  We want the tournament to be a great experience for everyone and hope that the Friday night’s party on the beach will give our students an opportunity to develop friendships across campuses.  If the weather does not cooperate, we will host a dance with DJ and light refreshments in the hotel ballroom.  The registration fees are $40.00 per person (debater, coach, or judge).  The tournament will provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday.   


 The tournament offers competition in three divisions of debate: open, junior varsity and novice divisions. Please try to make Hotel arrangements by January 5, 2012 in order to guarantee the tournament rate.  Dr. Neil Berch from West Virginia University and Christy Webster Dunn from West Point will be working the tab room and assisting in the running of the tournament.  We will be using a 30-point scale with a tenth of a point increments (e.g. 27.1, 27.2 etc) on individual speaking scores.   Our tournament is CEDA sanctioned and will comply with CEDA’s Statement on Sexual Harassment and Discrimination and the Statement of Ethical Principles.  Time limits for speeches are 9-3-6 with ten minutes of preparation time.  Rounds one and two will be pre-determined and rounds three through six will be power matched.  Each school is responsible for securing three rounds of judging for every team registered at the tournament.  A limited number of judges can be hired for $120.00 per unregistered team.   


Hotel Accommodations: We reserved large rooms at $89.00 a night at the Ocean Place Resort & Spa Hotel conveniently located approximately three miles from campus in Long Branch, NJ.  The hotel is on the beach and all rooms have ocean views.  The Hotel also has an indoor and outdoor pool, a deluxe fitness center, a full service European Spa, and onsite restaurants and dry cleaning.  The hotel is also a 3 minute walk on the boardwalk to Pier Village, where you have access to restaurants, pizza parlors, shops etc.    The Hotel is located at One Ocean Boulevard, Long Branch, New Jersey 07740 and the Hotel phone number is (800) 411-6493 or (732) 571-4000. If you have any questions, please contact me at (732) 263-5742 (office) (732) 930-4300 (cell)  or by e-mail at jpatten@monmouth.edu.  Please let me know if there’s anything at all we can do for you or your students to help make this a wonderful tournament and weekend.  In friendship,
