[eDebate] Come join us at the 2008 Arizona Debate Institute
Wed Apr 9 18:41:50 CDT 2008
Please consider attending or sending your students to the 31st annual
ADI in beautiful Tempe, Arizona.
The ADI has earned the distinction of being the longest running, most
cost efficient collegiate workshop in the nation, boasts top ranked
speakers at all national tournaments, and is the only workshop with
the luxury of being fully contained in a newly renovated hotel. We
are fortunate to have access to the ASU library, the 17th largest in
the country. The cooperative philosophy of the ADI guarantees that all
participants have access to the volumes of evidence produced at all
levels of the workshop. Once again this year, all profits from this
year's ADI will be used to support the Southern California Urban
