Wind River District Judges
Each school is responsible for providing one judge per 6 entries. Please round up. For example, if you have 10 entries, you should be bringing two judges..
There is a $300 fee for every judge you are short of this goal.
Schools dropping judges the day of the tournament will be assessed a fee of $400 per judge. Drops at the tournament create significant impacts on our students and prevent the District Committee from recruiting replacement judges.
Please make sure and enter all judges into the Joy of Tournaments site.
If you have judges that are only able to judge specific events or are only available at certain times, please note that in the comments when you register on JOT. Otherwise, we will assume they can judge all events and will be available for all rounds.
Please try to bring judges that are able to judge a variety of events. It makes it very difficult to organize if judges say they can only judge one or two specific events.
Please let your accompanying judges know how much they are appreciated by all of us however it is vital that if they commit to judge they need to honor that commitment it has a very negative impact on the tournament if they drop on the day of the tournament.
If you have someone that might be interested in being a hired judge, please email Carina White email@example.com We will be paying by the round this year ($11 per round for first year out judges, $13 per round for everyone else, $30 per Congress session).We will also pay a gas stipend and/or for a hotel room if needed. We will be in need of additional judges from years past due to adding Big Questions debate on Thursday. We appreciate any and all leads. Our initial deadline for hired judges to indicate their intention to attend will be March 4.
Below is the list of registered judges; each school gets one strike for main events; email to Carina by Wednesday at 5.
