Policy Debate Semifinals TOC Bid
January 10, 2014
On behalf of the Homewood-Flossmoor Debate Team, we would like to invite you to attend the 47th annual Homewood-Flossmoor Viking Classic debate tournament. The tournament will run Friday, Feburary 21-Sunday, February 23. Our tournament will include Policy Debate competition at the Varsity and Novice levels. Again this year, the tournament has been certified as a Tournament of Champions Qualifier at the semifinals level.
Both divisions will have six preliminary rounds, and will break to octafinals or double octafinals, depending on the final numbers. We are anticipating having a great turnout, and are very excited for all of you to attend. Please register as soon as possible – the deadline for registration is Friday, February 14, at which time registration on joyoftournaments.com will be closed and teams will be charged drop fees for teams dropping after that time. Changes made after that time must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (PLEASE use HF DEBATE as the subject line). Teams requesting hired judges BEFORE Friday, February 10 will be given priority for hired judges - at any rate, NO HIRED JUDGES will be found if those hired judges are requested after Feburary 10. YOU MUST SPECIFICALLY REQUEST A HIRED JUDGE IF YOU WOULD LIKE ONE.
We hope to see all of you in February!
