Dear coaches,

Things are taking shape for this weekend's District Tournament at Loyola!

JUDGES NEEDED: With 24 hours left in registration, the most pressing issue right now is judges. We currently have a LOT of schools with missing or TBA judges. The district committee would far prefer you to bring actual capable people to Districts rather a check to cover missing judges. We need your help in shaking the trees to fill these spots, so that we aren't still in rounds during Saturday Night Live. Thank you in advance for your help with this important task!

ENTRY LISTS: The current entry list can be found by visiting http://chesapeake.tabroom.com. All IE and debate events with at least 4 entries will qualify 2 to NSDA, while those with at least 10 entries will qualify 3. Congress will qualify 2 per chamber. Debate will run as a double-elimination tournament, speech will have 3 preliminary rounds (breaking to a final of at least 4 entries, if more than 7 are entered), and congress will have two sessions.

CONGRESS UPDATE: Since we need 16 students to run a chamber, we unfortunately won't be able to run both house and senate. House allows more entries per school so we will consolidate into a house, which will have 2 qualifiers to nationals. If shifting students to house would cause you to exceed the house entry rules, please shuffle your entries accordingly.

INTERNET: Please note that The Chesapeake District is NOT using the pilot Internet rules at the District Tournament, so remind your students that connectivity during extemp prep or during rounds is not permitted.

BIG QUESTIONS: This event is the only event that will run on Sunday.

More to come!

Charles
