Good afternoon.  We are looking forward to having you at 48th New York City Invitation at Bronx High School of Science.  I wanted to catch you up on some administrative necessities.  First, Legislation for the tournament is due Friday, September 21st at 9 pm New York time.   We expect to have preliminary chambers, legislation, and semis topic area out by the middle of that next week to provide you the most time possible to prep.  Each school should submit one portion of legislation and expect to adhere to the NSDA template (https://www.speechanddebate.org/legislation-templates/ ).  I know that sometimes that a lot of people use google drive and that can effect the formatting.  If you use google drive, please share it with me and send me an e-mail telling me that it has been shared.  The email address for this year is 2018BronxLeg@gmail.com.

 

Second, I would like to reiterate the need to register and activate your Congress judges.  We will use e-balloting exclusively this year.  As we get closer to the tournament, I will send out the procedures for submitting and checking your ballots.  We e-ballots will enhance the tournament for a number of reasons, including never losing a ballot  AND  using less paper and ink.  My hopes is that this will also mean that we will have a faster posting of results and breaks.

 

I want to again communicate how excited we are to have you attend the 2018 NYC Invitational.  I wish you good luck and will see you soon

 

 

Thank you

 

Willie Warren
