Dear Australs community,
We are excited to announce the launch of our new tournament website at www.monashaustrals.com. It contains a range of important information about the tournament and we would advise anyone who is interested in attending Monash Australs 2009 to have a look through the site. As the tournament approaches, we will be updating both the website and the Australs list with key information.
Key Australs dates:
Pre-registration: 15 Mar - 5 Apr
Full Registration: 22 Apr - 4 May
Individual Registration: 11 May- 25 May
ADAM: 26-28 Jun
Free Debate Pre-Australs: 29 Jun - 1 Jul
Australs: 2-10 Jul
PRE-REGISTRATION MARCH 15th – APRIL 5th
Pre-registration will open on March 15th and will close on April 5th. Spots will be tentatively confirmed as soon as the online registration form has been successfully completed. However, payment must be received by April 5th or the spots will be forfeited. When organising payment of deposits to meet this deadline, please allow five working days for international telegraphic transfers to process.
Deposit: $150 per team, $50 per adjudicator
Cap: 4 teams, 6 adjudicators
A link to the online system will be posted at www.monashaustrals.com/registration.html when the system opens. More information on the process and costs can also be found there.
Deposit waiver system:
If you are interested in taking advantage of our deposit waiver scheme, which allows institutions facing financial difficulties attending the tournament the option of registering a single team and up to one adjudicator with no deposit, please contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is much easier to complete the online pre-registration process once a deposit waiver has been confirmed, so we would encourage all interested institutions to send us an email as soon as possible.
The President of the Monash Association of Debaters in 2008, Melissa Birch, will be the tournament's registration officer. If you have queries about specific registration issues, please email her at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you in July!
