Just want to make a quick note that we are hosting the Motor City Classic 
again this year, October 28-30. As requested by some folks, we tried to find 
another date that did not conflict with Harvard, but it became impossible 
given when we host a high school tournament and when other ADA tournaments 
were hosted. I apologize again, but I will continue to try to find a better 

The tournament will follow same format as last year. Our tournament hotel 
again will be the lovely Hyatt Regency in Dearborn. The cost of the rooms 
has gone up slightly (to $99/night), but in-room internet access is thrown 
in for free.

In addition, we have been asked to offer some sort of judge preference 
system in the tournament. We will attempt to do so as long as the judging 
pool allows us to do so. In the past, this has proven almost impossible 
because so many teams demand hired judging from us. If you are concerned 
about the quality of the judging pool, bring enough judges to cover your 
entry, give your best judges more than 1 or 2 round commitments and we 
should be able to make the system work.

I am about to leave town for a wedding. On my return, I will post a full 
invite here and on the Debateresults site.
