The Syracuse University Debate Union cordially invites you to attend the
9th annual Orange Invitational Debate Tournament to be held February 17th
and 18th. The tournament will include both Open and Novice divisions of CEDA Debate
and will break to the appropriate number of elimination rounds.
We will be debating the spring 1996 (or fall 1995, depending upon how you
look at it) CEDA Debate topic. The tournament will consist of 6
preliminary rounds with and 8-3-5 time schedule and 5 minutes prep. time. Each school is
expected to cover its entries with 1 judge covering 2 teams. A limited
number of hired judges will be available at $100 per uncovered team.
Awards will be given to all teams clearing into elimination rounds as well as the top ten
speakers in each division.
We hope to see all of you in Syracuse this year. Please join us in the
"heart" of the northeast for some excellent competition and great fun.

you are with the Syracuse Debate Tournament. The phone number of the Best
Western is (315)-479-7000.

the end of the off ramp. You will see the hotel on your right. Coming
from the North, you will continue going straight at the end of the off

Because of the fact that Frank and I are usually the last judges to
arrive to our elimination round panels (sans Korcok) we feel that it
would be hypocritical for us to impose a forfeit rule. However, we highly encourage everyone to
begin their rounds as soon as possible.
