Electronic Ballots: FGCCFL will offer electronic ballots via Tabroom in all events except Congress. All judges must have an active Tabroom account linked to their registration and must provide a connected device (laptop computer or tablet preferred; smartphone acceptable) on Tournament Day.

COVID-19 Protocols: Social distancing of 6 feet is required. While indoors masks must be worn by competitors unless speaking during a round or eating, drinking water does not excuse a student from wearing a mask throughout rounds or in the cafeteria. Masks for adults are optional.
