Students may enter only one Friday night event!!
Students may enter as many events on Saturday as they wish. IF they are late due to time, the student will get last place in that round with zero quality points.
Students may only enter one 30 minute draw event: IX, USX, IDA
Reminder: If the round ends before a student performs, the student will get last place. (Do not enter too many events or students will be late to rounds.)
Awards will be given for the top six in each of the Saturday events. Congress will medal the top six in each chamber. LD and PFD will medal the top three. More will medal if we have a large entry.
Sweeps will be given out for Forensics on Saturday. The top three teams will get trophies. This will be based on the school's top sixteen entries. (Hopefully, coaches will not have to choose your top entries ahead of time.) Schools should limit to 20 entries for now. I may be able to allow more as we get closer.
Text or call my cell at 316-323-7193 if you have any questions.
Text me before you leave your building about drops. You should be able to do drops on tabroom.com that morning. Text me if you can’t figure it out.
