Scarlet Invitational

2024 — Des Moines, IA/US

You are cordially invited to the Scarlet Invitational

Our intention is to be hosting a typical DMPS tournament with three rounds of all IE occurring on Friday night followed by Congressional, LD, and PF debates on Saturday. We will attempt to offer novice divisions of LD and PF as well. We will combine events if necessary.

Additionally, I've decided to use the February topics for LD and PF debate to give people an additional tournament to practice this topic before districs.

We will be following the typical Des Moines Tournament Schedule for these events
