Dear Forensics Colleagues:

The Southeastern Oklahoma State and Oklahoma City University forensics programs and the Oklahoma Theta and Epsilon chapters of Pi Kappa Delta warmly invite you to the Storm Classic Swing Friday—Sunday, September 27-29 to be held on Southeastern’s campus in Durant, Oklahoma, the “campus of a thousand magnolias.” The Swing is open to all intercollegiate competitors. Registration will take place in the Russell Building (The John Massey School of Business). Parking is conveniently located behind the Russell Building on Montgomery St.

The tournament will offer Varsity and Junior Varsity division NPDA and IPDA Debate on Friday. Dinner will be provided on Friday evening. A self-contained Open division tournament featuring all 11 AFA-NIET will be offered on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, a Varsity division TIPDA Debate tournament will be offered on Sunday as well. On both Saturday and Sunday lunch, provided by Southeastern’s Magnolia Eatery, will be available.

We welcome you back to Southeastern for the Storm Classic, home of the former national Savage Forensic Debate Tournament which was once held 26 years straight from 1929 to 1955 and after a brief interruption continued into the early 1990s. The Savage Forensic was the oldest and one of the largest attended college debating tournaments in the entire nation. At its height in 1963, the national debate tournament hosted more than 45 schools from Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Louisiana.

Below is a schedule of the Storm Classic Swing:

  • On Friday, Sept. 27th five rounds of NPDA and IPDA debate will be offered with quarters (or semis) on Friday as well. Students may enter in either Parliamentary of IPDA on Friday, but not both. Semis (or finals) will be held on Saturday. We will follow all NPDA and IPDA rules and procedures. There will be a Varsity and Junior division offered.  Wi-Fi Internet access will be available throughout the building.
  • Saturday, Sept. 28th SE will hold a self-contained IE tournament, with all 11 AFA-NIET. There will be two preliminary rounds and finals of Individual Events. Students may enter three individual events per pattern. Two duos count as two separate events. No prepared event may have been used in competition prior to this academic year. Only an Open division will be offered for individual events.
  • On Sunday, Sept. 29th OCU will host a self-contained IE tournament with all 11 AFA-NIET as well. There will be two preliminary rounds and finals of Individual Events. Students may enter three individual events per pattern. Two duos count as two events. No prepared event may have been used in competition prior to this academic year. Only an Open division will be offered for individual events. In addition, there will be five rounds of TIPDA with appropriate elimination rounds. We will follow all TIPDA rules and procedures. Only a Varsity division will be offered for TIPDA. Students entered in TIPDA will not be allowed to enter IEs, Sunday.

In closing, the Durant/Calera/Denison area is home to several hotels which will fit all tastes and budgets. These hotels often offer much more competitive rates when booked by each individual team.
