Hello everyone,


Let the LPDL Season Commence!


Our first tournament is Friday, October 13th. The tournament will be hosted at North Central College in Naperville, IL. Thank you Richard Paine, John Stanley and North Central College for your hospitality.


The tournament will be a six round tournament (as entry permits). At the same time as the tournament, we will also, once again, hold an introductory parliamentary debate workshop for new competitors. Students may enter the tournament OR register for the workshop, but not both. The workshop is a great opportunity for new students in your program to get a jump-start on learning the fundamentals of Parliamentary debate.

If the tournament size does not permit, there will be 4 prelim rounds with a Final rounds that allow for the most amount of students to participate without advancing more than 50% of the field.



There is food available for purchase in the Student Union, easily walkable across campus from registration (Goldspohn Hall).

Parking can be tricky on NCC’s campus because the campus is part of the Naperville Historic District, limiting how the campus can build. Ultimately, you may want to plan extra time to find parking on campus.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call my cell (630) 901-6900.

I look forward to seeing everyone on Friday!
