Pampa Tascosa TFA Swing Tournament

2020 — Online, TX/US

The Speech and Debate Teams at Pampa and Tascosa High Schools cordially invite you to attend the Pampa/Tascosa Swing October 15-17, 2020. We will offer all TFA events except for PFD and WSD, and will also offer Poetry and Prose. All IEs except for extemp will be asynchronous. Live rounds will take place on classrooms.cloud. With this being our first experience jumping into the virtual hosting world, we are limiting entries in every event. We will strive to accommodate all waitlisted entries. Ballots for asynchronous events will be sent out the morning of Thursday the 15th, with ballots due Friday the 16th at 5:00 pm. Finalists will be posted that evening. 

Students in asynchronous IEs may enter 4 asynchronous IEs per tournaments. Extempers may only enter one division of extemp per tournament, and may not compete in Congress, LD, or CX. Congress may not enter LD, CX, or Extemp. Entries are due by 5:00 pm, October 12th. Drops may be made without penalty until 12:00pm on October 13th. Links to all video performances for the asynchronous IEs should be posted by 5:00 pm on Wednesday the 14th.
