Dear Colleagues,


The Palomar College Speech and Debate Team is proud to announce the Ray Dahlin Invitational.  This Individual Events and Lincoln-Douglas debate open-division tournament will be held Friday, November 11, at Grossmont College.


The Ray Dahlin Invitational will offer:


  • Two preliminary rounds of competition breaking to final rounds in the early evening.



  • For the first time in the history of our tournament we will be offering an open division of NFA LD debate.



  • A swing tournament opportunity in conjunction with the Griffin Invitational to be held Saturday and Sunday.



  • An assortment of food for the judges and lunch provided for the students.



  • Sweepstakes trophies for the top three 4-year and 2-year schools.  All finalists will receive awards. We will not be offering a novice division but “Top-Novices” will be awarded in all events, including NFA LD.



We look forward to seeing you at the Ray Dahlin Invitational.
