Welcome to the 1st London Treasures TFA Tournament!
The London High School Speech and Debate Club is hosting its first-ever TFA Speech and Debate tournament, and we are so excited about this new adventure!
The tournament is scheduled for Saturday, September 7th, at London ISD, located at 1306 FM 43, Corpus Christi, TX 78415.
We will offer the following debate and speaking events: Prose Interpretation, Poetry Interpretation, Program Oral Interp, Informative, Humorous, Dramatic, Duo, Duet Acting, Oratory, LD Debate, CX Debate, PF Debate, Congress, Foreign Extemp, and US Extemp.
TFA rules and time limits will be followed in all events. LD will use the September/October NSDA topic. CX will debate the arms topic. Public Forum will debate the September/October NSDA resolution.
Awards will be given to the top six finishers in each of the individual events. In debate, the quarterfinalists will be given awards. Sweepstakes awards will be given to the two highest-ranking speech clubs.
The deadline for all entries is Tuesday, September 3, 2019. Please note that LD, PF, and CX Debate will break to Quarters unless there is a cleaner break to Semis, or if numbers warrant breaking to Octos. We will NOT break brackets.
On the day of the tournament, it is very important that we start on time. Registration starts at 7 a.m.
Extemp Draw starts at 7:30 a.m.
Debate teams not registered by 8:00 a.m. will not be able to compete in Round 1 and will be given a bye-loss.
Thank you for understanding.
See you on September 7th!
