Coaches,

I hope this email finds you well, safe, and warm. Thank you so much for signing-up to attend the Harlen Hamm Tournament! We had such a great time hosting last year, and it is my hope to provide your kids with as good as a tournament experience as last year's. I wanted to send some reminders your way as you get your entries finalized. 

The tournament will be at Rowan County Sr HS at 499 Viking Drive in Morehead. If you need any further directions, please let me know.

Remember that students are allowed to triple-enter in any event combination. Please note that a student who is triple-entered does so at his/her own risk, and rounds will not be held over for a student who missed due to being triple-entered. I will make sure that each round gives triple-entered students ample time get to all events, but I suggest you only allow a student to triple only if he/she is a veteran competitor who is well-acquainted with the rigorous schedule of tripling. 

Registration closes on Thursday at 5pm. Please try to have all your students entered by this time. Drop/add fees will be $5 on top of the original entry fee. You may drop or make substitutions yourself on Tabroom.com until noon on Friday, after which you must email me to make any changes. Substitutions are free and unlimited on Thursday and Friday, but on Saturday morning, only your first four substitutions are free, and after four, each sub will cost $5 on top of the original entry fee. On Saturday morning, please do not wait to tell me about drops/adds/subs until you arrive at RCSHS. Please send me an email before you leave or while en route to the tournament with any changes. That way, I can have the tournament ready to go as soon as you get here, and I don't have to scramble to get the first round begun.

The schedule is dependent upon the number of judges I get. I would love to provide you with a traditional three-prelim round tournament, but if I have too few clean judges to do this, I will go to a stagger-flighted system (like I did last year) or a double-flighted two prelim round tournament. At any rate, the tournament will definitely begin with Extemp draw at 8:00am (with an 8:30am start time for round 1), and awards will begin no later than 5:30 or 6:00pm. Once registration has closed, I will send out the finalized schedule.

Please try and fill your quota of judges! Missing judge fees are $35 each, but I would rather have your judges than your money!

The KHSSL board moved to remove the use of tables in performance from every event that previously allowed it. We will be following this rule. Mistakes on rule sheets that accompany ballots have been changed to indicate this.

Please have a blessed week, and I cannot wait to see every one of you on Saturday. If you have any questions, please let me know!

Ryan Brown
