Dear Lincoln Douglas Debate Round Robin Participants,

I am thrilled with the field we have assembled for our second annual Sunvitational Round Robin for Lincoln Douglas Debate. This email contains important information about the event. Please take some time to read through it and send me any comments or questions you may have.

Round Robin Venue

The Round Robin is being held at the BB&T Center – home of the Florida Panthers hockey team, as well as a number of concerts. In fact, Billy Joel has a concert the next night! We will be using suites for rounds, lounges, and conference spaces. Last year the guests of the Round Robin raved about the unique venue and setting for the competition. We’re thrilled to be back.
