The 2008 Las Vegas Classic Debate Tournament will occur from Sept 
30-October 7. 

In 2007 we hosted 88 teams in 3 divisions, this year we expect to surpass 
100 teams.  As always, we promise to provide everyone at the tournament 
with top-notch hospitality, excellent competition, and everything else 
that one may expect to find and enjoy in lovely Las Vegas.   

This year, we are resurrecting an important tradition--the Las Vegas Round 
Robin of yore...We will now host a round robin tournament preceeding our 
regular invitational tournament with a transparent application process 
(application details to be posted shortly after the NDT) the round robin 
will take place Tuesday September 30 and Wednesday October 1, 2008.   

The regular Las Vegas Classic invitational will run from Saturday October 
4-Monday October 6, 2008 with registration in the evening on Friday 
October 3.   

One additional new dimension to this tournament is a brief Argumentation 
and Debate Conference that will be held in the early or mid afternoon on 
the UNLV campus on Tuesday October 7, 2008.  Guidelines for submitting 
papers, abstracts, and/or discussion panels will be posted shortly after 
the NDT as well.   

For more info on the tournament (especially if you're curious about our 
Argumentation and Debate Conference), feel free to email me or just ask me 
at the NDT. 

We look forward to seeing all of our friends in Vegas again this October.
