Dear Colleagues:

We invite you to join us for the 22nd annual Hell Froze Over Swing for colleges and universities, to be hosted via Zoom by our two friendly forensics programs University of Texas at Austin and Bradley University January 16 and 17, 2021.

Our annual swing offers you a number of benefits, but in our minds the most important is the celebration of the continuing friendship not just between our two programs, but between ALL programs!

The swing will consist of two, one-day tournaments. Each tournament will offer all eleven AFA-NIET events and will follow AFA event descriptions.

We look forward to continuinng the evolution of the tournament and embracing the virtual format! 

Please come join our teams, as we celebrate yet another chapter in the rich relationship that is collegiate forensics!
