Brookings Fall Fest Interp Invitational NOT THIS ONE

2021 — Brookings, SD/US

Sept. 24, 2021

 

Dear High School Oral Interp Coaches:

 

We are pleased to invite you to the 17th annual Brookings Fall Festival after school oral interp invitational. The contest will be held live, in person at Brookings High School on Monday, October 25. If you are no longer the coach of a school, please let me know and/or forward this invitation to the new person.

 

Entries and Regulations

No student may be entered or participate in more than 2 divisions (even if they are entered in Reader’s Theater.  Our schedule just does not allow for triple entries). Each division will follow SDHSAA rules. Readers theatre groups should bring stools and stands as needed.

This year we are again going to register through Tabroom.  The address is www.tabroom.com. It’s pretty user friendly. If you have never used it, you will need to create a profile. Please contact me with any questions that you have. 

 

COVID Precautions

Brookings School District is currently in phase II of our Bobcat Tracks Plan.  That means that masks are strongly recommended in our building.  We encourage all competitors, coaches, judges, and spectators entering our building to wear masks at all times except when performing.  We will work to ensure that all performers can have 6 feet of distance (or more) from the audience. Additionally, our drinking fountains have been turned off, but our bottle fillers are operational.  We encourage everyone to bring their own water bottles with them. There is a potential for our COVID regulations to change.  We will inform coaches as soon as possible of any changes. If your student, coach, or judge is ill, please have them stay home. 

 

Arrival at the School 

Please try to arrive between 2:30 and 3:15.  Please enter through the MAIN ENTRANCE doors on the WEST side of the building.  There will be someone at the doors to direct you to Bell auditorium.  You are asked to remain in the auditorium until school releases at 3:25.  You will be allowed to use the restrooms located between the auditorium and the main office.
