We are thrilled you have chosen to join us for your competition weekend.

We will strive to do our best for the benefit of all students and coaches.

We have AMAZING trophies! The food is awesome! The atmosphere is POSITIVE! Come let us show them what makes this tournament so special.

It is important that all squad members have the opportunity to compete and get as much experience as necessary, so we will be offering many novice events. Many of our judges will be members of the community and school district. The volunteer judges we recruit are provided with a training course the week before the tournament. We do charge a flat per school judging fee that we use to pay our qualified contract judges. Contract judges will be used for advancing rounds of debate. Public Forum judges will be lay judges. Coaches will only be asked to judge as a last resort...we want coaches to be available to their students and enjoy our Grand Oaks hospitality.

Fees will be set as of Monday, Oct 30 at 3:00 pm.

Drops (a $10 fee on top of the entry fee) will be charged on Tuesday, Oct 31 at 8:00 am. Please email me with any changes after Tuesday, October 31. If you have any questions text me on my cell phone or email me or my assistant (see contact info below).

DROP FEES WILL BE COLLECTED and BILLED to schools dropping day of competition.

THIS WILL BE NOTED of drops happening on Saturday. Your school will be billed.

NOTE: Grand Oaks Students will be competing in some events
