Subject: Heart 2001 Invitation/Announcements (fwd)
I have had some requests to repost the heart invitation. Remember, the
block of rooms at the tournament hotel will be cancelled on January 31. So
make your reservations now. We hope to see many of you in Lawrence next
month. Any questions can be addressed to me at spartlow at falcon.cc.ukans.edu
Additionally, there WILL be a jv division so be sure to indicate the proper
division on your entry.
We would like to cordially invite your teams to participate in the
forty-fourth annual University of Kansas Donn W. Parson Heart of America
Tournament, to be held February 17, 18, and 19, 2001. We intend to offer
OPen and JV divisions. If there is sufficient interest we will offer a
The Heart of America entry form asks for information about each of the
debaters you bring. We use this information to put together what we call
the Heart Book, which is a compilation of your debaters. We are also
that you send us any photos of debaters and/or coaches. The best
photos will be included in the Heart
Book. We request that this year your comments about your squad be within
reasonable bounds of taste.
The charge for each team will be $85.00. This fee covers the
cost of Student Union rooms for elimination rounds, receptions, lunches,
coffee and donuts, trophies, the tournament booklet, the case disclosure
list, and the awards brunch for all tournament participants. Schools
should provide judges for all teams entered in the tournament. Judges
should have an undergraduate degree or should have finished their college
debate eligibility. One judge covers two teams; uncovered teams will be
assessed at the rate of $80.00 per team. We would prefer that you provide
judges rather than pay the fee, as our judging pool may be limited.
We urge you to make hotel reservations at once. We have designated the
Ramada Inn as the tournament hotel this year, which is the same hotel we
used last year. You should identify yourself as
being a KU Heart of America Debate participant when making reservations.
