To the Asian Debating Community:
I am very honoured to announce that the La Salle Debate Society will be hosting the 2nd La Salle IV from April 29 to May 1, 2011.
This is the pre-UADC tournament you do not want to miss!
The La Salle IV will be contested in the Asians Parliamentary Debate Format, with 5 preliminary rounds, and break rounds from the Quarter Finals to the Grand Final round.
The Chief Adjudicator of the La Salle IV is none other than our very own, Lucinda David! DCAs of the tournament will be announced as soon as we receive their confirmation.
We have a tournament cap of 70 teams, and we are strictly enforcing the n-1 rule. Institutions may send as many teams as they want granted that they follow this rule.
We are dead serious about the quality of adjudication. Aside from flying-in an international adj core, we are waiving registration fees for 9 qualified adjudicators. Our CA will be announcing details regarding this matter in the coming weeks.
Registration fee costs 1,500 Philippine Pesos per individual. That is less than 35 US Dollars! Registration fee covers lunch and PM snacks for three days, the Breaknight Party and the Championship Dinner. We are working with our partner hotels to give us a good rate for participants requiring accommodations during the tournament.
Registration opens on February 15, 2011, Tuesday at 10 AM, GMT +8. We encourage teams to register early as slots are limited. For more information, please visit www.dlsuworlds.com. You may also join the La Salle IV group on facebook for quick updates, or you may e-mail me at email@example.com for queries or if you want to go surfing with us after the tournament 😉
See you soon!
