Tournament Etiquette Tidbits:
All debaters and the judge should mute themselves while not talking
Heckles will NOT be allowed at this tournament to guarantee that all arguments can be heard.
POIs will be allowed. When the speaker wishes to POI, they will unmute themselves and ask the question.
All cameras must always be on.
There won’t be prep time, but members can discuss with each other before the round officially begins. All teams can use any printed or written plans.
To discuss with teammates during the round, use a group chat platform of your choice.
No one is allowed to screenshot or record any debates - if we find you doing so, you will be disqualified (No exceptions!)
Please leave your video call as soon as the round is over and feedback is given.
