The 2012 Back to the Beach Invitation is available. Back2Beach12-FINAL
December 1, 2011
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Mt. San Antonio College and California State University, Long Beach are pleased to invite you to Southern California for our 10th annual “Back to the Beach” swing on January 28-29, 2012. This year’s tournament will be held in Walnut, CA on the campus of Mt. San Antonio College.
The two tournaments will offer similar schedules and fees and both will have sweeps awards for the top three teams and top community college team. Saturday competition also includes a novice division and/or top novice awards while Sunday is an open division free-for-all. The top two overall speakers at the swing will compete live at awards for a showcase of fabulous prizes.
We are excited to announce the addition of a one-day parliamentary debate tournament on Saturday and a one-day NFA-LD debate tournament on Sunday. The Open division will be a standard 4/2 format but in novice we will have a six prelim tournament with Gold/Silver/Bronze awards given to the top teams. NOTE: Students may not enter both debate and IE events on the
same day. Students are more than welcome to mix and match on different days.
So c’mon back to the beach for some great competition and even better memories. Let us know how we can help with your travel plans or anything else that will make this a special weekend for your team.
Hope to see you there!
The Coaching Staff at Mt. San Antonio College & California State University, Long Beach
