2017 Rock Springs
November 3rd and 4th
The Rock Springs High School Speech and Debate Team would like to invite you to our Tiger Classic November 3rd and 4th at Rock Springs High School. We are offering a novice/varsity tournament, and we're giving out really nice trophies, so we hope you come!
* Registration opens October 3rd. Changes may be made to entries until 30 minutes before the tournament begins.
*We are offering ALL events (including impromptu) for both novice and varsity. Novice and varsity Congress are combined for preliminary sessions; assuming adequate numbers, novice congress competitors will break into their very own super congress. (Email Stephanie with novice congress names so we know who they are!)
* Competition starts on Friday, November 3rd at 3:30pm.
* We are offering a Superburrito! dinner on Friday night, with a giant made-to-order burrito, chips and salsa, dessert and drink for $7 each. Saturday for lunch we are offering pulled pork sandwiches, fresh veggies, chips, cookie, and a drink for $6 each. Please email a headcount to Stephanie (firstname.lastname@example.org) for meal orders by 5pm Monday, October 30th. Concessions will also be available.
* You are encouraged to bring judges with you! Varsity students are expected to judge novice rounds as they are available; debate and individual events for varsity and novice run in opposing patterns to facilitate varsity judging.
First and second place sweepstakes trophies will be awarded in 4A, 3A, 1A/2A.
First through third place (semifinals in debate) in each event, varsity and novice divisions, will receive trophies.
Fourth through sixth place finishers will receive medals.
We will award a medal to the top speaker in each debate event.
AND - this is exciting - we are offering, very tall, shiny "individual sweepstakes" trophies to the top three novice and top three varsity competitors who enter at least three events and score the most points in preliminary rounds. (If an individual enters more than three events, we will use the points from that person's best three events.)
Our priority is to run a positive, punctual tournament, and we are excited to host you!
