Hi judges,

First, thank you all for judging during prelim rounds these past two weeks! This tournament wouldn't have made it without you!

Second, two RFDs are still missing: 

Grist, Thomas - P2 R3 

Kothari, Anuj - P2 R4

Several other RFDs are also underdeveloped or unfinished. Judges, please add onto these when time permits! We cannot post results for prelims until all RFDs have been finished.

Third, the first round of elimination rounds will start tomorrow. Pairings have been blasted and posted. All rounds will have a panel of three judges each. Please DO NOT start the round until ALL judges are present. As always, when making your decision, do not confer with other judges. The last judge to submit his decision will also also see the Panel Decision on his screen. See the below paragraph for procedure regarding disclosure.

Lastly, decisions for tomorrow are still due at 4 PM. Regarding disclosure for all elimination rounds, unless all three judges are ready to disclose at the same time, DO NOT disclose results to debaters. Again, just like prelims, please feel free to email debaters constructive comments and such, but unless the entire panel is ready to disclose, please do not disclose results to debaters, even if two judges have already voted for the same side.

Thank you and have a great round tomorrow!

Xavier, on behalf of Tab
