JacksonEast Novice Tournament Invitation
Saturday, November 7, 2020
You are invited to attend the inaugural JacksonEast Novice Tournament! This is intended to be a low-stress tournament, and we hope it will be a great experience for your students. Like the Novice Workshop, we will allow varsity angels, but we will also need plenty of varsity judges to cover rounds. This year, we will offer LD, PF, CX, DI, Duo, HI, OO, Poe, Extemp, and Congress, POI, and Info. All events will allow manuscripts. For Policy, we encourage you to share your novice affirmative case areas as soon as possible. In Extemp, we will allow students to draw a folder with their topic containing one or more articles on the topic of their choice. The student may use the articles for their preparation and then keep the article to add to their personal files. Please call with any questions about any event.
