Dear Coaches and Debaters,

On behalf of the entire Rancho Speech and Debate team as well as the school's administration, we would like to cordially invite your team to the Rancho Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament. The tournament will be held December 6th and 7th, 2019.

On Friday, we will host two prelim rounds plus one final round of speech events (OO, INF, HI, DI, DUO, FX, IX, POI). On Saturday, we will offer three prelim rounds of debate (LD, CX, PF), a quarter-final for LD and PF, and a semi-final and a final round for LD, PF and CX. Congress will have three sessions on Saturday. No rounds will begin later than 7:00p.m. on Saturday. There will be individual awards based on Friday and Saturday’s results. Sweepstakes awards will include 1st through 5th places for large school and 1st and 2nd places for small school. This year, in lieu of trophies being handed out for sweepstakes, Rancho will be donating $200 to a charity which will be announced at the tournament.

Please see the tournament website for the registration, drop, and judge deadlines for this tournament.

Team entry fees will be determined based on the entries at the close of registration.

If you have any questions regarding the tournament, please contact me: We look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!
