In the USA the East is growing in both size and quality, and we invite 
everyone to come and be a part of it.

The Ithaca College tournament will be a great opportunity for that. It 
will feature both WUDC and USA policy debating formats. I will be the 
Chief Adjudicator and the Convener Scott Thompson [pthomson at ITHACA.EDU] 
plans for great hospitality and very nice venues. The important thing to 
many out of area folks is that the East will be there! Come and find out 
about us and see that we are trying our best to debate up to a world 

The invitation can be found at:

Let me know if you have any questions or if I can assist you. We welcome 
experienced judges from wherever! Let us know how we can assist you.

While there will be policy debate (jv and novice) do not let that deter 
you if you are a WUDC type. Come and see how we live together in peace 
and, somewhat, mutual respect. We echo LA police baton magnet Rodney 
King (who recently graduated from a rehab center), when we wonder "Why 
can't we all just get along?" Perhaps it cannot yet be true of nation 
states, but it just might be possible among debate formats.

If you have policy teams of the JV and novice variety who cannot go to 
the NYC Varsity Round Robin that weekend, send them to Ithaca! Do not be 
deterred by the WUDC crowd, they may or may not have all the faults of 
your policy colleagues. AND, they don't have to cut updates at night and 
make interesting pals at the bar.

Space may become limited, so please register as soon as possible. Please 
feel free to email me with your preliminary plans.

Best wishes, and see you in Ithaca!
