· Due to the overlap in Big Question Break Rounds and the beginning of WSD rounds, teams need to be ready to sub in 4 & 5 WSD team members for speaking in the early rounds if needed. We are going to strive to maintain schedule efficiency. Clearly this only applies to debaters that are double entered and break to the last rounds of BQ
