The Voices MMU debate society is proud to invite the Asian debate community to the inaugural Asian Unity Tournament hosted in Multimedia University (MMU), Cyberjaya, from the 29th of April 2009 until the 7th of May 2009.
Multimedia University has successfully hosted multiple international debate events, including the All-Asians in 2000, Australs in 2003 and Worlds in 2005. We are looking forward to continuing this tradition with the Asian Unity Tournament. The tournament will be convened by myself, Andrew "Ips" Gnananantham. The chief adjudicator for the tournament is Suthen "Tate" Thomas, Grand Finals adjudicator at the Worlds 2008, AUDC 2008 and Australs 2008 as well as Deputy Chief Adjudicator for the Australs 2008. Tabulation will handled by Edwin "Clansman" Law, Tabulation Director (and tab software author) for the Manila Australs 2008, MMU Worlds 2005 and MMU Australs 2003.
We believe a tournament in Malaysia presents a unique opportunity in terms of accessibility and also as a stopover to other destinations; the following prices are for a return ticket to Kuala Lumpur from various locations in Asia:
Singapore-77.00 SGD (AirAsia)
Manila (Clark)-5,385.00 PHP (AirAsia)
Bangkok-5,465.00 THB (AirAsia)
Dhaka-663.76 USD (Singapore Airlines)
Shanghai-1,066.00 CNY (AirAsia)
Do continue to watch this space, as we will be announcing the adjudication policy and DCA application process for the Asian Unity Tournament as well as the registration timetable and fees very soon. The tournament web site will also be up by the end of this week.
We look forward to seeing all of you here in Malaysia.
