As a reminder the last day to enter competators is the 11th at 10:00 PM, and the last day to enter judges is the 11th at 5:00 PM. Please remind your judges that they are committed until one round past when your last team/student competes. So this means they are committed for prelimary rounds and for at least one elimination round. If you have a PF team that debates in octo-finals then your judges are committed to judge in quarter finals, for example. This is so that we have enough judges. If the only judges left to judge are from the schools who are still competing, it makes it extrmely difficult to pair outrounds especially because each outround will require three judges. This is part of what can make a tournament run behind schedule.
Due to an awesome turn of events, I've been able to admit a bunch of speech entries that were on the waitlist. Most debate events have a double-digit waitlist at this point, but I anticipate there will be a few more drops this week so keep your teams entered and I will admit them as slots become available.
Please note that congress will be held at the middle school this year, so all congress judges and competators should go to the middle school. The congress docket is posted, please let me know if you have any further questions concerning it.
We look forward to hosting you this weekend,
