James ‘Al’ Johnson Memorial Speech Swing and Debate Tournament

October 28th-29th 2023


Dear Colleague:

The Colorado College cordially invites you to attend the James ‘Al’ Johnson Forensic Invitational to take place on the CC campus in Colorado Springs, on October 28-29th. We are excited to welcome you to the CC campus!

This year’s swing will include two individual event tournaments with 11 AFA-NST events (open division only) and one IPDA debate tournament. The debate tournament will be held Saturday, with four preliminary and two to three elimination rounds of open IPDA debate. Please note that competitors will not be able to compete in both IPDA and Speech on Saturday as the schedules overlap. Tournament entries, submitted via Forensicstournament.net, should be received no later than Monday, Oct. 23rd.

The invitation includes all tournament information and logistics. If there is a question you don't find answered, please contact us. We expect this year's tournament to draw outstanding competition that will be complemented by an excellent tab room staff. We hope that you will join us in the shadow of beautiful Pikes Peak for a superb fall tournament.

We look forward to hosting your team!


Warm regards,

Sarah Hinkle
