2010 UNLV Tournament Dates etc
« on: May 20, 2010, 03:00:18 PM »
We are changing the dates for the 2010 Las Vegas Classic Invitational Debate Tournament. 

This year we will not host on the first weekend in October (the same weekend as the 2010 Northwestern Tournament).  Instead, we plan to host our tournament on the middle weekend in October.  Registration will be Friday Oct 15, with prelims on Saturday Oct. 16 and Sunday Oct 17 (1st elim Sunday evening), and Elims on Monday Oct 18. 

We also are considering whether or not to host our round robin tournament this year.  If you are interested in us hosting it (meaning you would apply a team for admission) please let us know. IF we host it, the dates  would be Wednesday Oct 13 and Thursday Oct 14.  Please reply to jacob.thompson@unlv.edu

We believe that our tournament date move should increase both the quantity and quality of teams that enter.  We already have commitments from several prominent west coast schools that they plan to "bring all of their teams." Last year's tournament drew 54 open teams, 12 JV and 14 novice.  We think that the date change could cause those numbers to grow substantially. The dates have changed, but our commitment to providing incredible hospitality and the finest possible tournament experience will remain the same.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you all in Vegas again this year.
