Dear Friends,


On behalf of the University of Utah and The University of Texas at El Paso, we invite you to the Great Salt Lake Invitational/UTEP IE Classic held online via the ForensicsTournament/8x8 platform. The tournaments will be held on January 14-16, 2022. On Friday, January 14th and Saturday, January 15th, attendees will be able to participate in two complete IE tournaments, including an entry option in IPDA. On Saturday, January 15th-Sunday, January 16th, 2022, teams may also choose to participate  in the concurrent debate tournaments, featuring competition in NPDA, BP, and NFA-LD debate formats. Full  details about double entry restrictions are included in Part I of the invitation.


These tournaments will offer a single, open division of all Individual and Debate events. We will recognize top novices in BP. In addition to a tournament that we hope will support a broad range of competitive interests and formats, we also look forward to supporting everyone’s efforts to navigate forensics in this difficult environment.


Please carefully review the full tournament details below. 


We look forward to seeing you in January and wish everyone the best of luck and safety for the remainder of the competitive season.


Warmest regards,


Jason Jordan, Ph.D.                                                  Carlos Tarin, Ph.D.
