Dear USA Program,
I just wanted to comment on a great debate experience that was had
last year by several USA teams, including Air Force, St. John's and
We did the Budapest Open & Vienna IV swing. Both tournaments
were fabulous, well run, great motions and very international
We took a train from Budapest to Vienna that was very reasonable.
The housing was very nice and also reasonable. The air flight
arriving in Budapest and leaving from Vienna was the same price as
round-trip from either city.
This year both tournaments are ikely again to take place over our
Spring break. Budapest 1-2 March & Vienna 7-8-9.
Fabulous tourism as well.
Airlines from Burlington, Vermont are showing $1100 for the trip.
From NYC is $718!
Watch for them on Facebook.
