Tournament Status Notice

Hello Everyone,

We must regret to inform you that the Robert Barbera is officially cancelled. Due to nearby wildfires, the administration has closed the campus through Sunday. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

Thank you,

Tournament Staff



The online shop participating schools must use to pay their registration fees for the Robert Barbera Invitational is now active. Note, this is only used to PAY your fees.
Here is the General Storefront link: https://commerce.cashnet.com/CSUNCOMM. Once you enter the storefront you should find two different registration options. The first of these is labeled “Selection for Schools with covered/uncovered Judge Fee.” This is the standard option that most schools should use. The other option is labeled "Selection for Schools with Pre-Arranged Hired Judge Fee.” This option is only for schools that need CSUN to pay the judges they want to hire. Schools intending to use this second option should reach out to me (joel.lemuel@csun.edu) ASAP because there is paperwork that needs to be filled out by the hired judges. 
We're looking forward to seeing you all next week!
-- CSUN Forensics

This year all fees must be paid via credit card or electronic check through an online shop run by the University. Cash and paper checks cannot be accepted. If this presents a problem for your university, please send an email explaining the situation to joel.lemuel@csun.edu. As soon as the link to the online shop is active I will post it to www.tabroom.com and www.forensicstournament.net. The website will remain active until 11:59pm on Thursday October 10th


If you have students with specific dietary accommodations, please notify the tournament so their meals can be accounted for.
