Dear debaters,

we regret to inform that the Turku International Open has been cancelled.
We are aware of our inactivity lately and this is simply due to us facing some complications in organising the event. Some of our registered teams have cancelled their participation in the tournament and we faced a lack of participants.
Our team has worked hard to make sure this event would be successful. Yet, we faced some unexpected difficulties such as lack of participants and other difficulties that arise from organising an event as big as TIO was planned to be.
We have decided to cancel the event. We thank everyone for their interest in
the event, and give you our deepest apologies. 

We kindly ask you to contact this email only as the school is independent of the
debate team and therefore was taking part in organizing the event.

Best regards,
The Turku International Open team.
