FYI

I just sent to all schools copies of the Varsity and Novice Parliamentarian Blogs. Hopefully, you will take time to look at these.

A word about final placements . . . 

Our goal is to develop a system whereby the tiebreakers for Congress will be:

1. Ranks (scorers and Parliamentarian)

2. Parliamentarian's Final Chamber Ranking

3. Congress Persons Speech Scores

We are still encountering some problems factoring in the speech scores in all instances. I will continue to experiment and work on this. As a result, PLEASE realize that speech points that may be shown in results sheets may or may not be complete. The GOOD NEWS these scores were not needed to break any ties in final chamber placements. The NOT SO GOOD NEWS, coaches do not have one place to look to determine NSDA points for Congress. The only way you can truly find that information is by totally up speech scorers from speech ballots returned to you.

Also, please know that as of this time, we are NOT entering individual speech scores in the form that can be used for NADA Auto Point entry.

As noted, we will continue to fine tune this effort!
