2019 Santa Ana Dia de Los Muertos Invitational
Dates: 10/26/2019


Hello Coaches!

We are pleased to welcome you to the Santa Ana Dia De Los Muertos Invitational! The tournament will be hosted at Century High School in Santa Ana, on Saturday, October 26th. It will be a one-day tournament and we will offer Open Divisions of Individual Events and Congressional Debate.  We will also add a fun event called the, "Royal Rumble!"  

The Royal Rumble is an event that students can enter and perform what ever speech or interp they choose.  So if your student has a great DI, you can sign her/him in the regular DI event but they can also enter the same piece/event for the Royal Rumble!  Every round the top three placed students will advance to the next round and the bottom three will be eliminated.  We will continue until we have our top 5 or 6 finalist.  The winner gets a real boxing belt with a skull on the face!

We have a judging requirement of 1 judge for every 6 entries, however, we do have the option of a judging buy-out. We will be hiring a pool of college forensics competitors to help us fill out our pool of hired judges so that our students will have new perspectives in the judging pool. If you would like to buy-out your judging commitment, the fee will be $30 per judge. If you do not wish to buy-out, you may enter your judges in the tournament registration process. If your judges do not show up the day of the tournament you will have the option to pay the buy-out or to drop entries.
