UDM WSDC Invitational Hosted by the Tufts Debating Society
2022 — Online, MA/US
On behalf of the UDM League and the members of the Tufts Debate Society who are hosting this tournament, I would like to formally invite everyone to our WSDC Invitational! This tournament will be hosted by members from various debate societies in the Massachusetts area and, principally, students who attend Tufts.
This tournament will be hosted between the 12th and 13th of February, 2022 over discord and zoom. This Tabroom website will simply be used to track regisration. Tabbycat will be used to handle the actual organization, check-ins, and pairings for the tournament. Below is the link for the invitation for the tournament. If you are unable to access any of the links, reach out to the head of the tab: Nicholas DeVito. Additionally, join our facebook group where we will be posting the critical information that will also appear on the discord. Regisration for this tournament opens today, January 18th and will close when we hit our tournament cap of around 50 teams.
The tournament is open to all individuals in high school, regardless of their national circuit. We will be using a combination of impromptu and prepared motions. Prepared motions will be released in the coming days. There will be three prepared motions, one for elimination rounds and two for preliminary rounds. Given our current expectations, we will have a clean break to quarterfinals but may increase or remove rounds depending on the turnout. The CAs for this tournament will be picked from the tournament organizers and all have several years of debate experience, both as judges and competitors, and in hosting tournaments.
Payment can be accepted via PayPal, Venmo, Zelle or another payment option you can negotiate with the tournament organizers. The default email for contact is email@example.com. The regisration fro this tournament is 110USD and 55USD for the judge fee. The judging requirement will be n-1. There will be a limited amount of reg breaks which will come on a first come first serve basis.
