The Meadows Invitational

2022 — Las Vegas, NV/US

You are cordially invited to The Meadows School’s Invitational Tournament, Friday, October 28 through Sunday October 30. We will provide competition in Varsity Policy and Lincoln Douglas debate on the 2022 NATO topic and the Sept/Oct 2022 LD topic (TBA).



Our tournament will be In Person this year. Obviously, nothing is guaranteed, and we will update this regularly, but our current plan is to host in person. There is no entry deadline – we will accept entrants until we are full. Registration will open on Monday, August 15 at 12:00 Noon, PST. Fees will be frozen on Monday October 24; entries that drop after that time will still be obligated to pay entry fees.


We will attempt to hold a small novice division in each event – We have a very small campus, with strictly limited space. We are going to attempt to carve out spaces for small novice divisions, if varsity entry numbers allow it. Both varsity divisions will consist of six preliminary debates. Power matching will be based on Wins, High Low Points, Opponents Wins, Double High Low, Total Points and Judge Variance. Rounds Three through Six will be matched High Low within brackets. Novice divisions are to be determined.


Lincoln Douglas will be double flighted. Due to space limitations.


All entries will be placed on the waiting list initially. To get off the waitlist, please send your entry fees. Our business office is NOT equipped to accept online payments – please mail a check.


We will no longer allow Independent Entries. It is with great reluctance that we make this decision. We do not want to deny opportunities to anyone, but abuse of the system by irresponsible actors has made it much more difficult to host tournaments.


Novice Policy will be limited to the NDCA Packet.
