So for August I've decided to start a History debate tournament. Since this is the first tournament I've held, I'll keep the contestant list short.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Replacement contestants (In case main contestants forfeits)
1.
2.
3.

I'll be contacting contestants once the list is filled.

Contestants may choose topics, the only requirement is that said topics are directly history related.

Oh, yeah, I have something cool to show you (hint: it's not my bare chest).

I tried hosting a history tournament about four months back but it kind of fell apart. Mind you, I only had 8 in that tourney so good luck.

Because history has shown that hostin multiple tournaments at once diminishes the success of all tournaments. People sign up for multiple tournaments and overextend themselves. That's why the number of tournaments is now regulated.

You can't do that. I would just cancel the tourney and sign up to host your own sometime.
