=====================================

The Concordia Forensics Team is pleased to invite you and your squad to particiate in the 2023 Jannese Davidson Memorial Tournament. This free event, hosted by Concordia University Irvine on January 28th-29th, 2023, offers all 11 AFA/NFA/Phi Rho Pi speech events and three styles of debate: IPDA-LD, NFA-LD, and NPDA. 

We are also offering a one-day Saturday speech swing on our campus, the Golden Eagle Classic! See the link to the right to register for that tournament.

This year's entry deadline is MONDAY, January 23rd at 6:00 pm. We anticipate a large entry this year, especially in the LD (IPDA and NFA) style debate events. Please enter by the deadline. We will do our very best to accommodate every speaker and debater, but when the rooms are full, we cannot accept any more entries.

We cannot be flexible about uncovered entries. ALL entries need to have sufficient judging. If you can bring extra judges, we can compensate judges for extra rounds judged.

We look forward to seeing you all in Southern California at the end of January!
