Welcome back to the 26th Annual Lee Polk Classic 2019 at BCHS
"It's A Wonderful Tournament, 2.0"
Dear 2019 Tournament Participant,
On behalf of the Bay City High School Dungeoneers, we welcome you to the Twenty-Sixth Annual Lee R. Polk University Interscholastic League Speech and Drama Tournament. We have worked extremely hard to make this tournament a professional learning experience for everyone involved. The Dungeoneers are greatly honored to have you join us this year, and hope that the tournament leaves you with a memorable experience.
To begin we would like to give special thanks to all coaches, judges, and timekeepers for all of their tireless efforts in helping make this tournament a success. Moreover, we want to extend our appreciation to the outstanding Bay City High School administration, especially our principal, Estela Reyes, for their continued support of the Speech and Theatre program.
The theme of our tournament this year is “It’s a Wonderful Tournament, 2.0.” This theme is inspired by our winter show, It’s a Wonderful Life. And, in keeping with tradition, we will be awarding five sweepstakes points to the first coach to sing a Christmas carol to Mrs. Mirelez in the tab room.
Once again, thank you for your participation and support. We look forward to a fun, exciting, and competitive weekend. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Don’t forget to visit our concession stand in the cafeteria; and coaches, we have provided a hospitality room in our culinary classroom, just follow the candy canes to find it!
Competitors, we encourage you to make it a wonderful tournament and wow our judges with your talents!
Finally, we want to make all competitors and coaches aware of holiday festivities that will be taking place during the weekend of our tournament. The lighted Christmas parade will take place around the town square Friday night at 7:00 pm. If your team is not competing Friday night and you wish to attend the parade, it is sure to get you in the Christmas spirit! Saturday afternoon from 1-5 will be the "Hometown Christmas Celebration" around the town square. If you find yourself looking for activities for your team during the afternoon hours, this is a great option.
Carpe Diem…Seize the Day!
Tournament Director/Dungeoneer President
