An invitational including novice divisions.
March or April, NYSDCA State Tournament.
Schools with room available are strongly urged to host. It can be a nice money-maker for you (selling lunch/candy/water) and a fun event for your debaters to be on the other side of the tournament business. Host schools get free registration at their own venue. You provide the rooms, we provide the tournament!
