TCFL Novice Speech
2020 — NSDA Campus, CA/US
The Tri-County Forensic League
Fall Novice IE Tournament
October 31, 2020
Novice Competitor: Students that are competing for the first year in any Individual Events while in high school. If they have competed in any of the 13 events listed below in previous years while in high school, they are no longer a novice in IE's.
Patterns: (All bold events need to be prerecorded)
A Events: Extemp, OA, Expos, DI, OI, Storytelling, SPAR
B Events: Impromptu, OO, OPP, HI, POI, Duo,
Except for students doing Extemp, students MAY double enter in either pattern, but their total IE entry is limited to 3 events. This means that a student doing Extemp may not double enter in Pattern A but may double enter in Pattern B. (Not a good idea for novices to do three events because they aren't familiar with the workings of a tournament; use caution if a student wants to triple enter.)
