2020 — Zoom - Breakout Rooms, SD/US
Welcome to Pumpkinstakes!!
Dear High School Coaches,
On Saturday, October 31, 2020, The Watertown Speech Department will once again be hosting the Watertown Individual Events and Congressional Debate Tournaments Virtually and LIVE!
For duo and RT, students may compete together on one device or each be logged in on their own devices to compete on separate screens. *But remember that at State they will be required to perform on separate screens.*
If you have any questions concerning the tournament, or if you have changes on Friday, please feel free to contact me at school (882-6316 ext. 512 or 695-0646) or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes Saturday morning should be called or texted to (605) 695-0646 [Michael Jacobsen] or (605) 520-4356 [Jordan Bakken.] Please leave a message with specific drops so they can be made before you "arrive."
We will once again be offering Novice Interp this year. Please register your novice competitors in the correct division. We will be offering Novice Humor, Novice Drama, Novice Duo, Novice Storytelling, Novice Poetry, and Novice Non-Original Oratory. If numbers do not make sense or are too low we will combine novice events into a Mixed Novice Interp category.
Please note the schedule change for this year. Unfortunately, this means we will NOT be offering any Extemp, Oratory, or Informative...again/still.
It is back! We will not be having the discussion but instead will be offering Congressional Debate. If numbers allow we will have 3 different houses (Varsity, JV, and Novice.) For those who are competing in Congressional Debate, please email Jordan Bakken (email@example.com) for the docket.
All Varsity Events Include: Drama, Humor, Duo, Poetry, Storytelling, Reader's Theatre, Non-Original Oratory, Original Oratory, Congressional Debate
All Novice Events Include: Drama, Humor, Duo, Poetry, Storytelling, Non-Original Oratory, and Congressional Debate
Tabroom Accounts: Every competitor and judge will need to have a Tabroom account this year as we are doing the tournament virtually.
