     The American Mock Trial Association is the national
 framework in which collegiate mock trial teams such as ours
    compete. It is necessary for us to pay dues for our three
 competitive teams so that they will be permitted to compete.
  The association has inflated fees regularly over the past few
     years which gives us reason to believe that the AMTA
   registraion costs and fees will go up by at least $50 next
  season. Regional Team Registration will be for three teams
this year as opposed to last year's two which explains the raise
             in fee. See below for dues breakdown.

                       current progress this season (2007-2008) both teams are expected to Last Year's Attendance      18
                        qualify for this tournament. It is vital that all 18 people be able to

                                           along with one coach per team.
