Barton Classic 2017


Dear Director of Forensics:


The Princeton Forensic Society cordially invites you to the 53rd Annual Barton Classic Speech and Debate Tournament on November 10-11.  We intend to continue the more than fifty-year tradition of excellence established by our long time Director of Forensics Mrs. Phyllis Barton, by providing an exciting and competitive opportunity.

Please note that again this year – only policy, public forum, and Lincoln Douglas Debate will be competing both days.  All speech events and congress will begin on Saturday.

Please read the tournament information carefully.  It will be necessary to adhere to all deadlines. We recommend that you register as early as possible due to space limitations.  We regret that we cannot guarantee your participation unless full payment is made at final registration on November 10-11.  We will follow all OHSSL rules.  This is a PDQ Tournament in Policy Debate and therefore we will follow all rules as stated in the constitution

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the registration process – by e-mailing me at abates@vikingmail.org
