Dear colleagues,


The cool cats of the Eastern Illinois University Panthers and the McKendree University Bearcats cordially invite you to attend the Purrfect Pals Fur-ensics Swing on February 9th and 10th, 2019 on the McKendree campus in quaint Lebanon, IL.  Both halves will offer all 11 AFA events on a cold weather friendly small campus.


We will offer two individual events tournaments over the weekend with the full slate of AFA events. The Bearcat Half will take place on Saturday, while the Panther Half will occur on Sunday. Both halves will offer awards for the top six in each event, individual sweepstakes awards for the top three competitors, and team sweepstakes awards for the top three schools.


Entries are due Tuesday, February 5th, by 5:00 p.m.  Changes may be made without charge until Wednesday, February 6, at 5:00 p.m.  Registration for both tournaments will be submitted via Speechwire.


McKendree University is located in Lebanon, IL, about 30 miles east of St. Louis.  The Metro-East area is home to many quality restaurants, hotels, and a variety of forms of entertainment.  We hope you will join us in February.
