Welcome to the home page for the 2022 Trapper Rendezvous tournament hosted by Northwest College on Sep 23-24, 2022 for College students.

Status: System shutdown (No new schools, changes, adds, or drops )




 Dear Colleague:

 The Northwest College Forensics Program and the Charlotte Patrick Speech and Debate Society extends to you a cordial invitation to attend the 53rd ANNUAL TRAPPER RENDEZVOUS FORENSICS TOURNAMENT to be held in Powell, Wyoming, on September 23-24, 2022. Our intention is to host you in-person in Powell. However, should the need arise, we will alter the format to a virtual one. NWC follows the Federal and Wyoming State Health Guidelines. Masks may be required, depending on the COVID situation.  

 The 2022 Rendezvous will feature: 6 preliminary and 2-4 elimination rounds (depending on entries) in three divisions of parliamentary debate and one division of IPDA. PLEASE NOTE: Students will not be able to enter both IPDA and Parliamentary Debate. Should the need arise we reserve the right to collapse divisions in parliamentary debate. In addition, the Rendezvous will feature two preliminary rounds and two elimination rounds in one open division for eleven individual events. Please note that all individual events will follow AFA-NST rules and format. We also offer an open division of British Parliamentary Debate.

 This invitation includes a copy of the regulations, a schedule of events, and contact information. A motel list for Powell and Cody is included, and we encourage you to make early reservations. The tournament entry should be received no later than Tuesday, September 20. Entries will be facilitated by the Forensicstournament.net website.

 We look forward to hosting you and your squad.
