The Quarantine Classic
2020 — Discord, US
Hello and welcome to the first-ever Quarantine Classic! This year we realized that this pandemic has had debilitating effects on communities around the world and we want to do everything we can to help. Seeing that the debate community is full of eager, friendly people we decided to host a completely free online tournament for Speech and Debate events.
While there are MANY tournaments that are advertising free admission, this is quite different in the sense that we are doing everything in our power to cater to the debater's needs. Since we're current debaters, we know the hassle and struggle with online tournaments. We are doing everything in our power to get good judging, fun experiences, and on-time rounds so that you guys can focus on the only thing you should...competing. All we need from you is to join the tournament, compete, and have fun!
We are also happy to say that
WE ARE GIVING OUT NSDA POINTS FOR PF
We are proud to have teamed up with a Speech event Director and are offering all speech rounds that can be taped. SUBMIT TAPES TO THE EMAIL BELOW IN THE FORM OF A LINK BY JULY 23RD SO THAT OUR PANEL OF JUDGES HAVE TIME TO GRADE THEM.
The tournament will be hosted on Discord with rooms for people to compete in. Please join our server as well:
