Crossings Christian Gauntlet and OK Novice Championships
2021 — NSDA Campus, OK/US
The Crossings Gauntlet and OK Novice State Championship,
Thank you for considering to enter the The Crossings Gauntlet and OK Novice State Championship. In this crazy virtual world of many platforms, we are scheduling based on what has been widely accepted and proved to have worked. We will have asynchronous, prerecorded events with video upload and then be utilizing NSDA Campus for the synchronous debate events and extemp on Saturday only. Extemp draw will look a little different with instructions to come.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS THIS WILL BE A VERY DIFFERENT FORMAT

Asynchronous Events: Postings for Asynchronous events will be public at 8am Thursday, January 7th. Judges will have until Friday January 8th at 11am to complete their judging. They can be judged anytime at the judges leisure. Because of the schedule and time allotment, a judge may be assigned to more than one event depending on the size of the pool. Rounds that are not judged will be reassigned and blasted at 11:30 am Friday to be judged by 2 pm. Semis and or Finals will be released at 2:30 pm to be judged by 4:00 pm. Any necessary final rounds remaining will be scheduled at 4:30 to be judged by 6:00 pm and the asynchronous events will be completed Friday Night.
(I will post a schedule on tabroom as well)
