We have seriously thought about putting something together that helps with all of this. Here are some things you need to know for the weekend.

Thursday Debate

--Just the Longhorn district; we will be using electronic ballots on

--Debaters can use the internet

--We will have 3 prelims on Thursday night

Friday Debate & Public Speaking

--Lone Star will be debating that evening; Longhorn will be doing Public Speaking

--Lone Star debaters may not use the internet; they will be using electronic ballots

--Longhorn will be using paper ballots in IE's; there will be only one judge in the prelim rounds

Saturday Debate, Public Speaking, and Interp

--Both districts will be doing all three things today

--Longhorn will begin with the 4th prelim Saturday morning. 

--Longhorn will go to a traditional elim bracket beginning at 11:30 or so; panels will be in effective

--Lone Star IE's start early morning; all rounds will have 2 judges in each round; judges will have the option of using electronic ballots

--Semifinal rounds in IE's for both districts will feature 3 judges; finals may have 3 judges if in Longhorn; 5 judges if in Lone Star


You will keep track of what rounds you are judging in each district. You will be paid by both districts.
