Isidore Newman School Invitational
2017 — New Orleans, LA/US
Text of message:
Thank you for attending the 39th Newman Invitational. Although we had a large number of drops in the last week prior to the tournament (most were in the immediate 24 hours prior to Rd 1 due to inclement weather in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama), we proudly hosted nearly 500 competitors from nearly 60 schools. We certainly hope that weather will be more cooperative for next year's tournament, when we celebrate the 40th Invitational, which will take place on December 7-9, 2018. Please join us as we celebrate 40 years of hosting tournaments on our campus.
If you have items that you think you may have left behind, please let us know so we can keep an eye out for them.
We have some ballots from speech and congress that were unclaimed. In the next few days, we should be able to scan them and email them to individual school, so that you and your students may see the feedback from the judges.
As always, we are in pursuit of the perfect tournament, and we have already begun a review of what we can do to make the tournament a better experience for everyone. If you have suggestions regarding schedule, events, judges, hospitality, concessions, facilities, and any other aspect of the tournament we can influence, please let us know.
We have a number of schools with outstanding balances (mostly the schools that withdrew in the week prior to the tournament). We ask that you take care of making payment arrangements as soon as possible. Please check your invoices in tabroom, and let us know if you have any questions.
We hope everyone had a safe trip back home. Have a wonderful holiday season, and a happy new year.
Greg and Alma
