To the College Debate Community:
You are invited to attend the 2006 College Debate Preview Program at the
Heart of Texas Invitational. The preview offers representatives from college
debate programs the opportunity to talk with high school seniors about debating
in college. The preview will be held during the Heart of Texas Invitational
Debate and Speech Tournament in Dallas, Texas during the weekend of October
20-2. Last year over 100 high schools from over 30 states attended the
tournament. College representatives from programs all over the United States were
also in attendance. It would be our honor to host representatives from your
school this year.
Colleges attending the preview are offered two full pages of advertising (no
charge) in the tournament program. The ad pages should be sent to me (camera
ready) so that they arrive no later than October 10th. Traditionally, ad
pages have included a one page letter from the director, and one page of
"college propaganda" about the school. You may format your two pages in any way
that you think would be helpful to your recruiting efforts--as long as it is
camera ready, and I get it by the 10th. There isn't a formal schedule for the
College Preview Program. We do open a room between rounds five and six on
Saturday morning to create a place for students to meet with representatives
however you are free to watch rounds, talk with students, visit with friends,
feed yourself in the coaches lounge, and visit our campus and our city. If you
are willing to judge a round or two it would be sincerely appreciated however
you shouldn't feel any pressure to do so. If you or your representative would
like to judge for money (to help pay for the trip) then I would be happy to
help with those arrangements.
The Westin Park Central will serve again serve as the tournament hotel. You
can make reservations at:
or call the Westin at 1-888-627-7032 and request the ST. MARK'S SCHOOL OF
TEXAS ? HEART OF TEXAS INVITATIONAL program. The tournament rate is $87 per
room for either a
King or a room with two doubles. The last date to make reservations for the
Westin is October 1. Rounds start on Friday morning and continue through the
final round on Sunday evening. You are also invited to the Senior Speaker's
Breakfast to be held at the hotel on Sunday morning.
You can obtain additional information regarding the tournament on our web
Please be sure to get program ad pages to me by October 10th. There is no
formal registration process for the preview (other than sending the ad on
time), but please let me know if you are planning to attend.
I hope to see you in October.
