Your team is invited to the 2019 Kenyon College Forensics Classic organized by Classic Debate Camp! 

The Kenyon College Classic will be different from other Ohio tournaments!  Not only because it will feature two days of competition for PF, LD, and Policy, and will take place on a college campus, but also because we will encourage judges to give ORAL CRITIQUES and to DISCLOSE DECISIONS.  We will also be using ELECTRONIC BALLOTS.  We want to give Ohio debaters the chance to experience what we think are the good features of national circuit tournaments.  (For speech competitors, things will be the same as at other Ohio speech and debate tournaments.)


All events will be hosted at Kenyon College - Gambier, Ohio. Student drop-off is at Peirce Hall both Friday and Saturday. This is a change from the original schedule of events.


Kenyon: 103 College Rd, Gambier, OH 43022 (a detailed map will be sent out later)
