I will be sending out several reminders, but PLEASE be sure:

- check for linked student and judge accounts.

Every competitor will need to have a tabroom account will need to be linked to your school tabroom account .

Every judge you submit will need to have a tabroom account and will need to be linked to your school account (I have instructions if you need them)

- ask all extemp/debate students and judges to login to their tabroom accounts today to confirm access. If they cannot gain access, email help@tabroom.com to have the issue resolved.

- the biggest headaches have come from students/judges not accessing accounts/linking accounts.

- Ask all judges / students to login to their ZOOM accounts to confirm access.

Debate & Extemp:

  • Any competitor account not linked to their tabroom account by registration time each day will count as “a drop at registration.”

    • Registration for Debate is 2:00 p.m. Friday. I will send a zoom link Friday morning for registration/help room. Any unlinked students will be a "drop at registration."

    • Registration for Extemp is Saturday 7:15-8:00 (please confirm entries/onsite)

  • All debate events will be held synchronous (live) with prelims held on Friday and out rounds held on Saturday. Student should report to their zooms AHEAD of time (15-30 min early). This will help the process go smoother and get everyone home on time Friday night! - Debate Rounds Start at 3:30 p.m. Blast at 3pm. REPORT to ZOOM 30 minutes early.

  • Please ask all your students to change naming conventions to MATCH the tabroom schematics on Zoom.
  • Extemp will be held synchronous (on ZOOM) on Saturday.

    • Students will report to extemp draw AS SOON AS THEY RECEIVE THEIR MESSAGE / 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE ROUND where all first speakers will receive the same 5 questions. Then all 2nd speakers will get 5 different questions. Then all 3rd speakers will get 5 new questions… and so on.

    • After 30 minutes, all speakers will then go to their assigned breakout rooms to give their speech.


  • IE’s will be held asynchronous (recorded) the upload deadline will be Tuesday by 11:59pm.

  • Please tell your I.E. judges prelim asynchronous rounds will be released at 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning and should be judged by 6:30 p.m. Friday. Asynchronous prelim rounds not started by 8:30 a.m. Saturday will be replaced/fined. Please make sure if there is a conflict with a scheduled round, the tournament is notified immediately. Please ask judges to judge in advance if they can AND to type comments for students. Since students are not able to watch rounds, comments are their only source of educational feedback in a tournament setting. Please emphasize this with your judges.
