Also, please be aware that both CHSSA dues and WBFL dues must be paid in full and a Principal's Designation form must be turned in before the tournament in order for your school to compete.
*NOTE: All times are approximate. It is also possible that we will single-flight PF and LD in order to help make the tournament run on schedule. Rounds will run as soon as possible after previous round is completed, so students and coaches should check postings often and be prepared to go to rounds earlier if schedule permits. Under no circumstance should students leave campus. Failure to show up for a round may result in forfeiting the round.
Each school is required to bring one judge for every 2 Policy teams, 2 Parli teams, 4 Public Forum teams or 4 LD debaters (or fraction thereof). Extra judges are appreciated and will help the tournament to run efficiently and on time. Judges may be college students, but must be at least one year out of high school if they have previously competed in WBFL.
Judges should report before 8:00 AM so that they are present for judging instructions. Please tell your judges to be ON TIME. Late judges cause the tournament to run late. Please also note the relationship of your judge to the team on JOT. Failure to fulfill your judging commitment may result in dropped entries at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director.
