Tournament Status: Tournament Completed

Welcome to the home page for the 2017 Tabor-Venitsky & Southern California LD Championships tournament hosted by Cerritos College (CA) on Feb 17-19, 2017 for College students.

The Cerritos College Falcon Forensics squad is pleased to invite you to attend the annual Tabor-Venitsky Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament to be held on Friday and Saturday, February 17 and 18, 2017. The Tabor-Venitsky traditionally provides a competitive preview of the PSCFA Spring Championships, CCCFA State Championship, as well as Phi Rho Pi. As with last year, we are also honored to welcome visiting competitors from China who will be debating with American students.

For the Tabor-Venitsky, we will offer four rounds of NPDA parliamentary debate breaking to a bronze/gold elimination round format on Friday and three rounds of Individual Events breaking to finals on Saturday. Students may enter a maximum of two IE events per pattern. We will offer two divisions in parliamentary debate and individual events. The open division in both debate and individual events will be limited to students with remaining CCCFA and/or Phi Rho Pi eligibility ONLY.

We would also like to invite you to the Southern California LD Championships - a one day NFA-LD and IPDA swing tournament to be held on Sunday, February 19, 2017 at Cerritos College. The Championships will offer four rounds of LD competition for your competitors in novice and open. The Championships has no restrictions on eligibility; all undergraduate students, include those who have exhausted their CCCFA and/or PRP eligibility, are invited to compete.

All entries must be submitted by Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 6:00pm PST. Fees will be assessed on Wednesday February 15, 2017 at 6:00pm. Any adds after that date will be at the tournament director’s discretion. However, please email with drops through Friday to assist in paneling.
