20th Annual “Hell Froze Over” Swing

Hosted by the Bradley University and the University of Texas at Austin

January 12 and 13, 2019

 

Dear Colleagues:
 
We invite you to join us for the twentieth annual Hell Froze Over Swing for colleges and universities, to be hosted by our two friendly forensics programs this year on the campus of Bradley University, January 12 and 13, 2019.
 
Our annual swing offers you a number of benefits including national competition, but in our minds the most important is the celebration of the continuing friendship not just between our programs, but between ALL programs!
 
The swing will consist of two, one-day tournaments, reducing your travel time. Each tournament will offer all eleven AFA-NIET events and will follow AFA event descriptions.
 
Those of you who attended last year know how much fun we had and we assure you the fun has just begun! Please come join our teams in Peoria, as we celebrate yet another chapter in the rich relationship that is collegiate Forensics!
