Tournament Status: Tournament Completed

Welcome to the home page for the 2018 Tabor-Venitsky & Southern California LD Championships tournament hosted by Cerritos College (CA) on Feb 16-18, 2018 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 16 and 17, 2018. Once again, this year we will be working in conjunction with an outstanding tab room staff to provide you with an exciting tournament. The Tabor-Venitsky traditionally provides a competitive preview of the PSCFA Spring Championships, CCCFA State Championship, as well as Phi Rho Pi. This year we will also offer a new event—Interviewing—which is featured at the Pi Kappa Delta national tournament. This event is open to all competitors, but will not count towards sweepstakes.

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. Each day will feature a quick awards ceremony. Students may enter a maximum of two IE events per pattern. We will offer two divisions in parliamentary debate and individual events. Please review page 4 for novice eligibility. The open division in both debate and individual events will be limited to students with remaining CCCFA and/or Phi Rho Pi eligibility ONLY. There will be no coaching or group prep allowed during preparation time in parliamentary debate.

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 18, 2018 at Cerritos College. The Championships will offer four rounds of LD competition for your competitors in novice and open. We will follow NFA rules in the event and break to appropriate elimination rounds. IPDA will follow Phi Rho Pi rules. IPDA students will strike topics in a centralized topic room before going to their competition rooms. 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.

Please submit your entries on www.forensicstournament.net. All entries must be submitted by Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 6:00pm PST. Fees will be assessed on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 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.
