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.


Special Note:  Please pay special attention to the term portion thereof.  If you have one or two entries, you must provide one judge.  If you have three or four entries, you must provide two judges.  If you have five or six entries, you must provide three judges.  Judges may only fulfill an obligation for ONE debate event.  If you have one CX team and one LD debater, you must provide two judges:  one for CX and one for LD.



Cross-entries:  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.


 Additional note about extemp and interp:  Judging shortages may force us to section some students from the same school into the same preliminary section of the individual events in order to free the judge from that school for a section.  We will only do this if it becomes necessary.

Drop fees:  Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 8th, the following drop fees will occur:

Debate entries:  double the entry fee

ALL I.E.'s:  loss of entry fee

 Entry DeadlineTuesday, November 7th, 2017 @ 11:59pm
