Dear Forensics Colleagues:

 

You are cordially invited to join us for the first annual Bulldog Tournament, to be held October 10th synchronously via Jitsi Meet/8x8. Our past tournaments have attracted a wide variety of colleges and universities; therefore, we hope schools looking for an excellent day of competition will join us this October. Both current and alumni members of the Concordia University, Nebraska Speech Team as well as members of the Nebraska Intercollegiate Forensics Association will join in harboring hosting responsibilities.

 

We plan to offer two rounds of AFA individual events with appropriate elimination rounds. The schedule is constructed with wellness in mind. And we will be upholding a (virtual) open door policy for competitors, judges and observers in rounds.

 

We hope to see you and your squad virtually on October 10th. If there is anything we can do, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

 

Sincerely,

                                                                   

Joe Davis, Director of Forensics
