JOVED, Bawor Cup Organizers Correct Dates for July Debates
Universitas Jenderal Soedirman, Purwokerto
2012 Java Overland Varsities English Debate Venue
While the 3rd Bawor Cup and the 16th Java Overland Varsities English Debate will still take place in Purwokerto in succession, organizers have corrected their dates to July 4-6 for the former and July 7-11 for the latter. Rather than a 11-day debating spree, the two events with different styles will be tightly condensed in one week. Bawor is a British Parliamentary competition that annually pulls nationwide debaters to the southern Java city while JOVED is a classic 3-on-3 championship, the first debating tournament in Indonesia with an internationally accepted format. Purwokerto's Universitas Jenderal Soedirman debaters are the core in the organization of both competitions, which also involve local schools and Jakarta-based Binus University. The JOVED convenor is Unsoed's Arbi Wienandar.
