Dear Debate Coach:

You are invited to a debate tournament to be held at Fargo South High School on Friday, Dec 10 and Saturday, Dec 11.  Lincoln-Douglas and Public Forum divisions will be offered.   LD and PF will offer Division I and II.  Standard time limits will be followed.

Judging Requirements

Teams will need to provide judges to cover their debate entries.  Judges who cover 2 entries will have rounds off during the course of the tournament. If a judge covers 3 debaters in Lincoln-Douglas and Public Forum they should expect to be judging all or most of the rounds. Elimination rounds are included in the total numbers of rounds in the tournament even if your teams have been eliminated you are expected to be available.

Judges will be scheduled to judge a variety of kinds (PF and LD) and levels of debate (Division I and II). Please indicate if judges should be assigned to ONLY PF or ONLY LD. If the judges you list are only able to judge division II (perhaps they are only one year out of school), please indicate this on the registration form. PLEASE ALSO NOTE ANY SCHOOL CONFLICTS OR INDIVIDUAL DEBATER CONFLICTS (worked with a debater in a coaching capacity, for example, for nationals preparation, at a camp, has a student in class, etc.) FOR JUDGES.

            A limited number of judges will also be available for hire from the tournament.  The rate for hired judges is $130.00. I will need this information no later than December 8th.

Cost

            LD entries are 10.00 each and PF entries are 15.00 each.

Concessions

           We are planning to have the typical concession stand will be available for food purchases both Friday evening and Saturday until early afternoon. 

 

Registration is due by Sunday, December 6th.  Please register on Tabroom.com at http://fargosouth.tabroom.com/. Judges should also have Tabroom accounts. PLEASE ASK YOUR JUDGES TO REGISTER WITH TABROOM WITH AN EMAIL ADDRESS. We are going to make online ballots available to judges. And schedules will be released online by round as well as on the wall. Your debaters may want Tabroom accounts so they can follow the tournament.

 

If you cannot make Tabroom cooperate, EMAIL the registrations to Gayle Hyde, tournament manager, or hand it to her at GF Central.  Changes will be accepted without penalty until 6:00 PM on Monday, Dec 7th. After that time, teams are expected to pay for all registered students and judges requested. Of course we will take adds provided we have space in the event after the deadline.

 

Gayle Hyde will serve as the tournament manager and Christian Novak will serve as the site manager. If you have questions about South, contact Christian. If you have questions about the tournament (rounds, schedule, judges, etc.) contact Gayle.
