Welcome to Reno!
I am grateful that each of you took a "gamble" and decided to join this incredible community we call "speech and debate." Putting yourself out there is a risk. Hopefully, as you went through the process of preparation for Phi Rho Pi, you discovered who you are and what you are capable of accomplishing. To be successful this week, you're not going to need "luck." You only need to remember all that you have learned from your teammates, coaches, and judges. Your practice and preparation will take you farther than any "roll of the dice."
Have an incredible week. I KNOW it will be one of the most educational and memorable experiences of your life. I feel a "jackpot" for you all!
Please call my cell if I can do anything to make your week "Gold."
Phi Rho Pi - President
Welcome to Reno, Nevada - The Biggest Little City in the World!
This year it is also host to the Biggest Little Forensics Community in the World. Phi Rho Pi is happy to partner with Las Positas College to present the 2019 National Tournament. It is no gamble to say that this year's competition will be excellent. But that is not the only sure bet.
The camaraderie and the friendships are sure to hit the jackpot. For many, the Phi Rho National Tournament is the highlight of their collegiate forensics career.
So I hope that you avoid the bad beat and your week in Reno will help you reach the limit.
Anyway, I wish you the best of luck.
Phi Rho Pi - Tournament Director
