Meadows Scrimmage 2

2020 — NSDA Campus, NV/US

This scrimmage is not an open tournament – it is a Novice LD practice round scrimmage between invited schools.


Here are my ideas for the scrimmage – I am open to amendments.


1. Four single flighted rounds. It would start at 8:30 AM and be done by 3:30 PM. It would mean one judge for every two debaters. I want all of the rounds judged by varsity debaters, so that coaches can focus on teaching. Please make sure that you enter responsible varsity debaters, and remind them about appropriate behavior in novice rounds:

·       Positive comments and constructive criticism

·       Written comments

·       Oral explanations

·       Mature behavior


2. Two Preset debates, with one Paired debates.


3. Mandatory Caselist Wiki the night before. It is okay to me if you have a “Novice” wiki page, if they are all essentially running the same arguments and cases.


4. We would use NSDA Campus – that seemed to work well.


5. No entry limits.


6. Schedule - Now with Four Rounds:


Round 1 - 9:00 AM-10:00 AM

Round 2 - 10:30 AM-11:30 AM

Lunch - 11:30 AM - 12:00 Noon

Round 3 - 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Round 4 - 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
