It is our pleasure to invite you to SSE Riga & LMT IV 2008 taking place from 12-14 December. Celebrating its 10th jubilee edition, we are committed to making the tournament an experience way beyond just ordinary debating.
For ten years maintaining high quality debating and competent judging accompanied by lavish socials with unlimited free alcohol and excellent food in the splendid surroundings of the central Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture, SSE Riga & LMT IV has become a real highlight among the events of this kind in Central and Eastern Europe. It will indeed remain such in 2008 captivating with a funky atmosphere, creative flare and passion for controversy only Riga can offer.
While keeping the cornerstone aspects of our traditional package we constantly strive for further enhancements. During this year’s event we will be delighted to accommodate you at the 5-star Radisson SAS hotel.
Delivering our promise of fair and professional adjudication Co-CAs of the tournament - Nick Devlin, the former director of Debating at the Cambridge Union Society, and Yuri Romanenkov, the ESL finalist at WUDC 2007 in Vancouver, are in the process of selecting a pool of highly qualified adjudicators. It already includes Debbie Newman, a former president of the Cambridge Union and the coach of the winning team at World Schools 2008, as well as several high profile alumni of the SSE Riga & LMT Debate Society.
We offer this entire package for mere €40 per debater and €20 for adjudicator coming in compliance with n-1 rule.
The registration closes on 30 November, or when the cap of 40 teams is reached, whichever is earlier. For more information, registration form and encounter with a blue speaking cow (yet another highlight of this year’s event) please visit our website http://www.sserigaiv.com/
