CFL Speech State Quals Leland

2019 — CA/US

Coast Forensics League State Quals Individual Events 
Sunday, March 3rd, 2019
at Leland High School
 

We will be offering the following events: 
(HI, DI, Duo, POI, OI, OPP, Expos, Imp, OO, OA, IX, NX)     

    

SPEECH QUALIFYING RULES:

 

TOURNAMENT FORMAT:  Each school is permitted 22 total entries at the State Quals IE tournament. Wild cards (top 7 at a 2018-19 CFL non-novice tournament) do not count against the school's 22 entries limit.

 

DOUBLE ENTRY AND DOUBLE QUALIFYING:

Students may double enter in any two events except the two extemp events.  Students may not attend State in 2 Speech events, however, so a choice must be made should they qualify in two events.  Students may not attend State in Parli debate and any extemp, so if a student decides to compete at State Quals IE, after qualifying in parli, they are agreeing to give up their parli spot should one of the debaters qualify in extemp.

SCRIPTS* - Students must have turned in their scripts prior to the script reading. If a script was rejected, the corrected script must be turned in to Julie Herman before 7:30am on March 3rd.

 


Please provide 1 judge for every 2 entries, making sure to indicate gender and experience level in the notes section of the judge screen as we will be assigning judges via computer.   This will be a large tournament, so please enter your students and judges as soon as possible, and no later than Monday, February 25th at 5:00pm for student entries and Thursday, February 28th at 5:00pm for judges!

AM Judge Shift 7:30am - 12:30pm
PM Judge Shift 12:15pm - 7:00pm

 

New for this year: for speech tournaments, we are moving to online ballots so ALL judges must have a Tabroom account and must bring some sort of electronic device (laptop, tablet, etc.) to fill out their ballots.

 

If you have any EXTRA community judges, please register them here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdMw4LXLvqr3Nv9_44wHBSQWLyhx2ZWr7i1kFHUCOHIHuebhw/viewform?usp=sf_link

Coaches / Tournament Staff

Please make sure that your school's legal representative/chaperone for the day understands that s/he will be needed to work on the tournament staff for the entire tournament (either tab room or judge-call room). Schools with exceptionally large entries are humbly asked to bring more than one representative. Conversely, smaller schools that normally share a chaperone are humbly asked to bring a representative for each school if at all possible. We realistically need close to twenty coaches to staff a tournament of this size; thank you in advance for your assistance.

 

YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED TO SHOW YOUR PERMISSION SLIPS/MEDICAL RELEASE FORMS TO THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR.
