Only 8 days to go until registration closes for the World Schools Debating Championships 2006
So, team managers, please encourage all those in your national delegations to register on-line. We have yet to receive any registrations from, amongst others, New Zealand, Greece, Argentina, Ireland, Estonia or Indonesia.
N.B. Can EVERYONE who has already registered log in to their on-line profile through the registration system (www.schoolsdebate.com/register/index.asp) and confirm that all your details are correct and all relevant fields filled before 4th May.
The system requires that all participants log in to confirm this data, so even if you have received a confirmation e-mail from us or your invoice for fees, please log in to review your entries. Further, even if you haven't registered yet, but intend to do so, please log in to the system again after you have registered to ensure that you can access the information.
This is very important, as it allows us to ensure that the data we hold on you is accurate, and that you intend to come to Wales in July. If you have any technical difficulties with the system then please contact email@example.com, feel free to reply to this e-mail for any other queries.
So, as the registrations continue to flood in, we're looking forward to even more!
