Please manage tournament entry through Tabroom.com until October 17 at 6:00 EST. Drops after October 19 at 6 pm EST are subject to a drop fee equal to the participant fee.


Preliminary debates will occur in Manoogian Hall (906 W. Warren Avenue, Detroit, MI 48201) and elimination debates will be hosted in our newly remodeled campus Student Center (5221 Gullen Mall
