Thanks to all schools for your participation in events this term. We were very pleased with the way the online format worked, and participation remained very high, and we were delighted that many new schools joined debate. Events will of course continue online for the remainder of the school year.

We wanted to draw your attention to some events for OSDU members, all of which have been posted on the OSDU Calendar of Events:

• The Senior Provincial Championships will take place Fri. Feb. 26 – Sun. Feb. 28. Qualification takes place through your regional qualifier only; some of which have taken place whereas others are in the new year. Information will be sent out only to teams who have qualified. The tournament invitation is now available on the calendar page.

• The Junior Provincial Championships has been moved a bit later to Saturday, March 27. This event is open to all OSDU members.

• to follow-up on some events that were hosted in the Fall, there will be two additional tournaments; one junior and one senior, which are meant for students who have not had a number of other opportunities this year. They will be held again in a one day format – 2 prepared rounds – 4 rounds total. The junior event will be on Saturday, January 23, and the senior event two weeks later on Saturday, February 6.

As a reminder, all events being organized by OSDU will have no registration fee.
