Dear Coaches,

We have made the following changes to the schedule:

Policy Debate (both divisions) - will have 5 rounds and break to semis. The semis will take place during the Round 6 time slot on the current schedule. Finals will take place during the Elim 1 time slot on the current schedule.

Novice LD - will have 5 rounds and break to quarters. Quarters takes place during the Round 6 time slot on the current schedule. Semis takes place during Elim 1 time slot, and Finals takes place during Elim 2 time slot.

Varsity LD and Public Forum - will have 6 prelims as planned. However, both are large enough that we anticipate having more than 16 entries with a record of 4-2 or better. If that happens, we will have a "partial double octos" round that is single flighted taking place during the Elim 1 time slot. We will move immediately to a full Octos (single flighted if possible), and then Quarters. We will finish the Quarters on Saturday evening but perhaps later than originally scheduled. Semis and Finals will be on Sunday morning as scheduled.

In order to make the additional round work, judges in the LD and PF pool are obligated through Octos. If none of your VLD or PF entries advance, your judges may still be needed for both the Partial  Doubles and the Octos.

If you have any questions about this alternate schedule, please let us know.

Thank you,

Greg and Alma
