Washington State IE Tournament
2020 — Tacoma, WA/US
The WIAA State Individual Events Tournament and the State Debate Tournament, originally scheduled to be held at the University of Puget Sound on March 14 and March 20-21, have been postponed. UPS has notified our staff that it will be rescheduling all events that might compromise resources needed to serve the health and safety of their campus community and visitors. The Washington State Forensics Association and WIAA Staff are working to reschedule the event. Schools will be notified of the rescheduled dates and location(s) when more information becomes available.
I fully understand that any new dates we pick for the tournaments will force some people to make tough decisions about whether they can attend or not, and I apologize for that in advance. We will do our best to not conflict with any national level speech and debate tournaments that our competitors may be attending.
Tabroom.com Tournament Website
I am moving the dates of the tournaments on tabroom.com to an arbitrary date in the future until we have new dates, and closing registration for the time being. I am also dropping all competitor and judge entries. I apologize for the inconvenience this will cause, but it will drastically cut down the chances of people being entered that won't be in attendance.
State Speech Alternates/Drops
If I told you that your speech alternates could be entered, they still can. All alternates I granted entry to can still be entered when we know the new date and location of the tournament. Currently there is only one event I have not been able to grant alternate entry in, due to high numbers. Every other event had space to accommodate all alternates.
If you informed me of any drops I will assume that they are no longer drops, unless you tell me otherwise. You do not need to inform me that previous drops are no longer drops.
