 Ziggy 2020



Dear Colleagues: 


We cordially invite you to join us for the Fifth Annual Dr. George W. Ziegelmueller Invitational Tournament (AKA “The Ziggy”) at Wayne State University via ZOOM and classrooms.cloud.


Our tournament will be held digitally, from Friday, October 23, through Sunday, October 25, 2020.


We will offer three divisions of policy debate with six rounds of preliminary debates in each division. We will cap entries at 5 teams/division/school initially; we will permit 6th or 7th teams pending the size and manageability of divisions. We will break half the teams that complete in each division, up to a maximum of 16 teams in each division. 


Please manage tournament entry through Tabroom.com, from September 1st until October 19th at 11:59 PM EST. Dropped entries after October 22nd at 11:59pm EST are subject to a drop fee (equal to the participant fee per individual).


Fees are $55 per policy debate entry (an entry is any partnership of two debaters registered to compete in a division). There will be no fees for judges or observers. 


We look forward to hosting you all virtually, from the Motor City this October!
