Pattern B: Extemp, DI, Poetry, DUO
Debate: Policy, Novice Policy, LD, Novice LD, PF, Congress


Cross Entries:  


We are trying something a little different for this tournament.  Students who are entered in debate events may not enter Pattern A events, but my register for Pattern B events.  Following the preliminary rounds, any student who advances to the elimination bracket of their given debate event will be dropped from their Pattern B events.  All Pattern A events will run in the morning.  All Pattern B events will run in the afternoon.  Please check the schedule closely.  ENTRY FEES WILL BE ADJUSTED TO REFLECT THE DROPS IF STUDENTS ADVANCE IN DEBATE EVENTS.

A student may cross-enter at his/her own risk; we will not hold rounds for students who have cross entered.  We have tried to schedule in such a way as to allow students to compete in several contests. However, we will begin rounds on time as much as possible – it will be the student’s responsibility to make sure that he/she makes the rounds as they are scheduled.  Please keep this in mind when cross-entering students. In extemp, a student will not be given extra prep time if he/she is late due to entry in another event. Extempers who are cross-entered in other Section B events should go to extemp first.

Judging Requirements 

CX Debate – 1 judge for every two entries or portion thereof.  
LD Debate – 1 judge for every four entries or portion thereof.
PF Debate – 1 judge for every two entries or portion thereof.
Extemp - 1 judge for every five entries or portion thereof.
Interp - 1 judge for every five entries or portion thereof.

Congress - 1 judge


Notes on judge requirements:


Please note that our schedule allows for little flexibility in our judging requirements.  Our judging fees are high because we want your judges, not your money.  Please help us run an efficient tournament by providing judges who are willing to judge.

 Judges must be available for the entire day.  Judges who miss an assignment will incur $75 fee for each assignment missed because we will be forced to pay a hired judge to fulfill your judging obligation.  Fees will be invoiced to your school. 

 Ballots should be picked up no later than 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the round.

 Partial entries require full judges.  For example:  an entry that includes 3 LDers and 3 policy debaters would require 3 judges (1 for LD and 2 for CX).

Debate judges may not judge in any other pool.
