2009 Langan Invitational @ Scranton High School [November 6-8, 2009]

Top 5 Reasons to Attend the 2009 Langan Invitational @ Scranton High School on November 6-8, 2009


#5College Fair– We’re currently in consultation with many of the Northeast’s Finest colleges/universities about hosting a college fair for all students on Saturday afternoon. This will give students a chance to talk to recruiters from these post-secondary institutions and is uniquely beneficial for juniors and seniors who are still making up their minds where they want to go to school.


#4Great Hospitality - We are committed to providing one of the most hospitable tournaments in the country. As they say in The Office - "There ain't no party like a Scranton Party, cuz a Scranton Party don't Stop!" On that note – we will provide free social events, for both coaches and students, at the tournament hotel. Also, all meals, for competitors and coaches, will be provided by the tournament.


#3Full Service Tournament – As of late, the tradition of hosting full service tournaments has been declining. Historically the Scranton High School program values a focus on novice competition. To that extent, we'll provide both varsity and novice divisions in all speech, debate, and congress events.


#2National Quality Tab Rooms – Scranton High School has over a 40 year “Tradition of Excellence” in Speech and Debate. We are committed to providing a national caliber tournament experience at a regional level. To fulfill this goal we have secured the assistance of two nationally reputable high school tab directors. Stefan Bauschard (Lakeland HS/Harvard Debate) will be the policy tab room director. He currently directs the policy tab room at both the Lakeland and Harvard High School tournaments. Jon Cruz (Bronx High School of Science/Victory Briefs) will be the Lincoln-Douglas tab room director. He currently directs the LD tab room at both the Bronx High School of Science and Victory Briefs tournaments annually.


#1Low Cost Entry Fees - $10/student is amongst the most inexpensive tournaments held in the United States. Included in this cost are all meals and events for students and coaches. In conjunction with this, I am aggressively seeking grants from local government to bring the fees to $0 and provide a free tournament experience for all who attend.

Here is an excerpt --


The Scranton High School Speech and Debate team cordially invites you to the newly expanded 2009 Langan Invitational Tournament this November!


Our 3-day extended format will maximize regional attendance and competitive success early in your season. The Speech, Congress, L-D, and P-F events will all finish Saturday evening. We anticipate that the policy semis and finals will be held on Sunday, depending on the final numbers.


Programs from New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, including Lexington, Bronx High School of Science, Hendrick Hudson, Lakeland, Newburgh, and Holy Ghost Prep have already committed to attend.


We are devoted to creating an inexpensive tournament experience, and accordingly, all meals will be provided. While we are still finalizing our budget, we anticipate the full cost, including all of the meals, to be no more than $10/student. We are even aggressively working to make the tournament free!!.


Both students and coaches can expect to enjoy free special events at the tournament hotel. We look forward to you joining us in Scranton in November. I am actively working on providing a college fair of Northeast Universities for all competitors on Saturday afternoon.


A comprehensive tournament invitation can be found at http://www.joyoftournaments.com by June 1, 2009. Please hold a spot for us on your 2009-2010 tournament schedules.
