Friends and Colleagues:

 

The Speech Teams at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University are pleased to invite you to the Chicago Swing on October 21st and 22nd, 2017. The Saturday portion will be held on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus and Sunday will take place on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University.

 

We are pleased to offer all 11 AFA Events. A novice division will be offered for any events with sufficient entries. Awards will be presented to the top six speakers in each event, top five speakers in individual sweepstakes, and the top five schools in team sweepstakes. We will also offer a combined swing sweepstakes award.

 

While there will be hundreds of hotel options to choose from in Chicago, we recommend that you begin your search early to find the best rate.

 

After awards on Saturday, we will be meeting for the first Chicago Swing social dinner at Portillos, only a few minutes away from the UIC campus. We hope you will all join us!

 

Please enter the tournament by using speechwire.com before 5pm on Tuesday October 17th, 2017. Fees are $10 per IE entry. One judge will be required for every six entries. Uncovered entries are each $10. Drop fees will be assessed after noon on Wednesday, October 18th. The drop fee for IE is $15 per dropped slot and $50 per dropped judge. These fees will apply each day as each day is a separate tournament. Student run teams will not be charged for entries covered by judges. Any teams in need of entry fee discounts will be given support if we are asked for it.

 

Your attendance at this tournament will benefit the UIC team significantly. We offer our sincerest thank you for your support.

 

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago soon.
