East Ridge Raptor Invitational Palooza
2017 — MN/US
We are excited to welcome you to the 4th East Ridge Raptor Invitational Palooza (#RIP)
Thank you for coming and HAPPY HALLOWEEN! We hope you have a successful day at our tournament!
JUDGES are required to make debate tournaments happen. Please have all your judge slots covered. If you will be short, a missing judge fee of $125 will be applied. We may have some judges available for hire at $100 - please contact me in advance if you need to hire judges.
COSTUMES are not only welcome, they are encouraged! HOWEVER, please inform your students that they should still be dressed appropriately, that no weapons (real / plastic / etc.) will be allowed in the school, and that no masks will be allowed (we need to be able to identify everyone in the school). Additionally, in light of the news last year, clown costumes are highly discouraged. We won't have a costume contest this year, unfortunately, but I love seeing everyone's creativity anyway!
The tab room will be in room 2049. Please come to 2049 if a room is locked or if your judge is missing.
Plese remind your students: DO NOT ENTER A ROOM UNTIL THE JUDGE IS THERE. LEAVE THE ROOM AS YOU FOUND IT.
