Not an MHL event but including a novice LD division debating the northeast novice topic. (VLD on Nov-Dec topic.)

12/13-14 Ridge Invitational.
Another non-MHL event, but including novice divisions.

1/3-4 Newark.
Non-MHL, but with novice divisions. Note one-time move to this early date due to Superbowl conflict (motel rooms are prohibitively expensive that weekend).

1/10-11 Bobcat at Byram Hills
Academy debate.

1/17-20 Lexington
The major tournament, but with novice divisions.

2/1, MHL at Horace Mann

Another non-MHL event, but including a novice LD division. And in some rounds, the varsity debaters judge the novices.

Another non-MHL college event, including a novice division. For those who do not want the angst of Cambridge this weekend.

2/22 MHL Grand Championship Blowout @ Bronx Science.

2/28-3/1 Lakeland.
An invitational including novice divisions.

March 29-30, NYSDCA State Tournament at Bronx Science.

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!
