CBSR IE and LD 1

2023 — Yucaipa, CA/US

The first CBSR Individual Events/Lincoln Douglas tournament of the 2023-24 competition year will be held Saturday, October 7, at Yucaipa High School, 33000 Yucaipa Blvd., Yucaipa.

• Students and judges must have accounts linked to your school in order to register. Instructions for creating and linking accounts may be found in the "Judging Resources" listed to the right.

• Double entry is allowed, but not in the same pattern. There is a list of "Event Patterns/Descriptions" on the right side of this page.

• Judge requirements are 1 for every 6 IE entries (or portion thereof) and 1 for every 2 LD entries (or portion thereof). At the tournament, judges will be assigned across all IE and LD events. A double-entered student counts as 2 entries!

• Judges will need a WiFi enabled device to enter ballots electronically. Phones will work, but most judges find judging on a phone is problematic. A laptop or tablet is generally better.

• Training on the day of the tournament is limited. There is a list of "Judging Resources" on the right side of this page. Please share a link to that page with your judges and encourage them to use it.

• Please have your judges enter standing conflicts for their students. Instructions on how to do this are listed on the "Judging Resources" tab. This will save time and problems on the day of the tournament.

• This tournament offers a novice division in all events, if the number of entries warrants. From the CBSR By-Laws:


Section 1. CBSR tournaments held prior to January shall have two competitive divisions; Novice and Open. The executive board may, at its discretion, eliminate the novice division at a tournament if there is a compelling reason to do so.

Section 2. In speech events, interpretation events, and congress, students may compete in the novice division in their first school year of competition only.

Section 3. In debate events students may compete in the novice division if they are first-year competitors; second year competitors who have never competed in any debate event; or are second- year competitors with very limited experience, fewer than three total wins in debate, and are considered by their coach to be on-par with the average first-year competitor.

Section 4. In all partner events both competitors must qualify as “Novice” in order to compete in the novice division.

Section 5. A first-year competitor may choose to compete in the Open Division of an event without losing their eligibility to compete in the Novice Division of another event at that or any later tournament.
