Holiday Havoc Invitational
Welcome to the Holiday Havoc Invitational presented by Columbia High School. We are excited and honored to host you on our campus on Friday and Saturday, December 8 and 9, 2017. We will offer speech and debate events in an effort to get some much needed practice before the long holiday break.
On Friday, in debate, we will offer Lincoln Douglas, Public Forum, and Policy Debate in both novice and varsity divisions. We will have Congressional Debate, Worlds School Debate, and Big Questions Debate in a varsity division only. There will be 3 rounds on Friday and the fourth round in LD, PF, CX, BQ, and Worlds School will be Saturday morning. In Congress, we will have 2 sessions Friday and 1 Saturday morning.
On Saturday, there will be 3 preliminary rounds in all speech events in both patterns, A and B, in both novice and varsity divisions. Students may double enter in Pattern A unless they are in Panel or a draw event (extemp, radio, retold) and they may double enter in Pattern B. Students, if they are double entered, are responsible for making it to their rounds in time as we will not hold up the tournament due to late arriving students.
In LD, PF, CX, Big Questions, and Worlds School debate formats there will be the Gold/Silver award round. In Congressional Debate, there will be a Super Congress final session.
NEW THIS YEAR! - WE ARE OFFERING A SPECIAL DESIGNATION OF AWARDS FOR SCHOOLS THAT ATTEND BOTH THE HOLIDAY HAVOC AND THE CANYON COUNTY CLASSIC (NOVEMBER 18-19). SWEEPSTAKES POINTS FOR BOTH TOURNAMENTS WILL BE ADDED TOGETHER TO AWARD THE TOP 3 SCHOOLS IN THE "SEASONAL SWING"!
It is recommended that you enter this tournament early to reserve your space. The entry and change deadline for this tournament is Wednesday, December 6, at 5:00 pm MST. To make it fair to allow as many schools to enter as possible, entry limits have been placed on this website but waitlisted entries can be made and they will be added as soon as possible to allow for a robust field of competition. Schools will be limited to 6 entries in each speech event, in each division (6 novice and 6 varsity), plus 10 in Congressional Debate, and 6 entries in each division in LD, PF, and Policy debate (6 novice and 6 varsity). Schools may enter 1 Worlds School team and 4 Big Questions debaters. The website will close early if we reach the maximum space allotted to this tournament so early entry is recommended. I am trying to identify all possible comptition spaces so please let your team know we are doing what we can to accommodate them.
If you have any questions, please contact tournament hosts Jeff Stoppenhagen at email@example.com or at cell 208-440-1794 or Assistant Coach Tucker Bates at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-965-5463.
