2019 — Madison, WI/US


The coaches and students of Middleton HS and James Madison Memorial HS, hope you will join us November 15 & 16, 2019 for another year of debate in Wisconsin's capital city. This year we are excited that there is NOT a home football game on our weekend, meaning much better lodging availability.

We offer a Semis Gold PF Bid, and Finals LD Bid to the Tournament of Champions. In addition, we offer both Novice and Open CX, as well as a  Congressional Debate tournament on each day of the event.

PF and LD offer seven-round single-flighted tournaments. We anticipate using the same 5-2 break as in past years.

CX offers 5 round tournaments. Based on numbers and schedule, we've used a semis break in the last few years, meaning a chance that a 4-1 team maybe excluded from outrounds.

Congressional debaters may submit NSDA-formatted legislation for debate through their coaches by November 2. Legislation should be available on or before November 5.

Please forward any questions to Tim Scheffler at or or 608-628-3114
