TFA OConnor OClassic
2023 — Helotes, TX/US
Hello one and all,
Welcome to the 2023 TFA O'Connor O'Classic hosted in-person at Sandra Day O'Connor High School in Helotes, TX on Saturday, November 18. Come for the wonderful hospitality, quality competition and fun we have planned for you! We hope you and your teams are ready to slay at Sandra Day!
We will offer the full set of events in IEs and Debate (including World Schools), including novice divisions of extemp, LD, and Policy Debate. For the purpose of this tournament, a Novice is considered someone in their first year of high school competition. We will require the NDCA Novice CX Packet for all of our novice CX rounds (click on "Topics" on the right side for more information). We WILL NOT break brackets in debate. Under new TFA rules, judges will be instructed at this tournament to not decide rounds on the basis of whether or not cases are disclosed by competitors or not. Disclosure of cases (either on a wiki or prior to round) is at the discretion of individual competitors and coaches.
Your school must have a school employee to be available for all tournament times/rounds to judge and provide support for the tournament when needed.
Those interested in being a hired judge should fill out the following form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdOnKu4Tyv_8yw0IawrTnQyLcPS6CQayfWlqHjGBeHLyfy4oA/viewform?usp=sf_link
So don't be tardy to the party at the O'Connor O'Classic!
