All Congressional debaters are eligible to cross-enter into Pattern B events (Extemp, DI, Poetry, Duo, OO). For IEs with 24 or more entries, there will be 2 prelims, a semi, and a final. For IEs with fewer than 24 entries, there will be 3 prelims and a final.

We will provide a catered hospitality room for judges and coaches with breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks. A well-stocked concession stand will be available for students to purchase snacks and meals courtesy of our invaluable Plano Eastside Boosters.
