Dear Director of Forensics, Coaches, and Students
On behalf of Holy Cross School, Headmaster Sean Martin, Class of 1992, Principal Eric Desormeaux, Class of 1995, and the Brother Aiden O’Reilly Debating Society we invite you and your team to the 2020 Navy and Old Gold Debate and Speech Exhibition featuring the Dr. Joseph H. Murry Debates to be held on Friday, September 25th, Saturday, September 26th, and Sunday September 27th.
The tournament will consist of competition in Varsity and Novice Policy Debate, Lincoln Douglas Debate, Public Forum Debate, and Legislative Debating.
Speech competition will be held in Oral Interpretation of Literature, Program Oral Interpretation, Oratorical Declamation, Original Oratory, Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, Impromptu Speaking, and Extemporaneous Speaking. All speech events, with the exception of Extemp and Impromptu, will be pre-recorded and uploaded.
We appreciate the consistent support that we have received through the years and as such our tournament has continued to grow in quality and quantity. The tournament is a qualifier for the Tournament of Champions in Lincoln-Douglas, Public Forum, and Speech.
The Holy Cross Navy and Old Gold Debate and Speech Exhibition will not be considering independents for entry. Please ensure your coach or other adult representative signs you up through your school and that you can meet the judging requirement or can hire rounds.
Best wishes as you begin the school year and we look forward to seeing you in September
