We have received an invitation to go to Prague. So, the dates are April 4-6. Travel options include plane (Ls 130), bus (Ls 65-70, but not convenient schedule), train (price roughly as plane, maybe cheaper, takes 24 hrs) and minivan (Ls 65, takes 24 hrs, need at least 8 people going, including 2 responsible drivers).
Go through and think. Are you interested in going? Put your wishes, ideas and questions in comments.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Charles University Debate Club is proud and happy to invite you to
*Allen & Overy Prague Debate Tournament 2008*
The sixth year of this tournament takes place on April 4th – 6th
*”Why should I participate?”*
*Prague.* Rather unsurprisingly, the sixth year of Allen & Overy Prague Debate Tournament again takes place in Prague. For those of you who have not been to Prague yet, this is an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with one of the most wonderful cities of the world, with its ancient narrow streets and beautiful historic centre on the one hand and vibrant night life onthe other.
*Debates.* In the last few years, we had the opportunity to meet many great debaters from all over Europe and see them prove their skill. This year, however, we expect even more: the team cap has been increased to 40 teams and there will be 5 preliminary rounds followed by semifinals and the grand final. We are certain that we will all enjoy ever more challenging debates. Moreover, this year’s Chief Adjudicator is Jens Fischer from neighboring Germany who was the CA of Europeans in 2006.
Beer.* What can be better after several deadly debates than to relax in the company of eloquent fellow debaters and exquisite “liquid bread”, as Czechs call it? And remember, beer is still under 1 Euro while the number of pubs in Prague is on a steady rise. Fellowship (of the debate). We are very pleased that over the past several years, a stable community of people has been founded who got acquainted at our tournament
and who come and meet every year. We are sure that they will come again this year and therefore it is safe for us to say: Come and meet some great people!
Registration fee:* This year the registration fee is 30 Euros for a debater or 15 Euros for those debaters who do not need accommodation. Please note that while we give you this option, it is primarily intended for the people who live in Prague or have a place there to stay for free. The *adjudicators* are as usual *free* from any payment or fee on their part whatsoever.
We are aware that our loyal participants will notice the increase, but we hope you understand that the increased number of teams creates additional expenses. For 30 Euros you will get accommodation for the duration of the tournament, a lunch on Saturday and a special dinner on Saturday.
Dress code: *As the final debate takes place in a prestigious venue, we would like to ask you to take a formal dress with you.
