Tournament Invitations

Below are links to the invitations and online registration for the forensic tournaments we host. We use an online service--speechwire.com--to manage online tournament registration and tournament tabulation. The service is very popular on the college circuit, as it manages team information and data reporting very well. Using the service requires creating an account for your school's team. If you are a home school, simply create a name.
