There will be no previewing or argument limitations. There will be no workshops or planning meetings for this event. The format is policy debate, on the 2010/11 national high school debate topic. Each prelim round will have two judges: one CDL judge and one Allstate judge. Please read the overview carefully. Please confirm with Forrest — forrestsumlar@urbandebate.org — no later than the end of the day Friday, 12/17, that your team will participate, and to whom the $500 incentive should be issued to (we’ll be sending these in two increments of $250, one now and one at the event).

We’re looking forward to a very exciting, very educational, very appealing special event, toward the end of January. Congratulations to all 14 invitees. This is a very strong group of Varsity teams from throughout the CDL.
