Dear Coaches,

The Veterans Memorial HS Speech and Debate program is excited to invite you and your students to our 4th Annual T.F.A. qualifier to be held on Saturday, December 14, 2019. This year's tournament is also a NIETOC bid tournament! We hope you’ll join us in our beautiful school! We’re offering a one day schedule to help more students attend and to cut down on travel costs for our out of town competitors. We offer a fabulous holiday dinner type spread in our hospitality room, and our tournament promises a friendly, festive atmosphere! And this year, we are pleased to announce that we are a NIETOC bid tournament as well!

NIETOC bids are gained at the following levels:

0-19 contestants = FIRST PLACE BID

20-34 contestants = FIRST, SECOND & THIRD PLACE BIDS

35-50 contestants = FINAL ROUND BIDS

51-70 contestants = SEMIFINAL ROUND BIDS

71-99 contestants = QUARTERFINAL ROUND BIDS

100 + contestants = OCTAFINAL ROUND BIDS

We are accepting entries on a first come-first serve basis. Having a great judging pool helps us run a timely tournament, so we ask you please list your judges online; judging fees will be assessed for missing judges. (We'd rather have judges than money to pay for missing judges, though!) Requirements are 1 per 20 IEs, 1 per 4LD, 1 per 4 CX. The judge fee is $50.00 per missing judge. (Please note that due to low enrollment the past two years, we will not be offering PF Debate and instead will offer World Schools Debate.)

  Please make your entries ONLINE through Joy of Tournaments.com by

5:00 p.m.  FRIDAY, Dec. 6, 2019.

 Adds and drops without cost will be accepted through WEDNESDAY, Dec. 11 at 5:00 p.m. Entry fees will be finalized at this time.

If you have any questions, call (361) 878-7900 ext. 23033 or email Laurel at  laurel.brashears@ccisd.us.

Whether you and your team are traveling across the bridge or across the state, we wish you safe travels and look forward to seeing you on December 14TH


Thank You,

Laurel Brashears (Theatre Director) & Elias Green (Debate)
