Hello and welcome!!

At the start of the new semester, we are excited that you are joining us to help kick off the Spring competitive season! It’s a new semester, and as we say here at Plano East: The Sun Always Rises in the East!

We will be offering all TFA events, plus Prose, Poetry, and Impromptu. WS/CX/PF/LD/Congress competitors will be able to cross-enter into ONE Pattern A event (Extemp, HI, Poetry, Duo, OO). We will have 3 Prelims of Debate. 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 be providing a wonderful catered hospitality room - breakfast, lunch, and dinner (plus snacks and drinks throughout the day) - and we will have an incredible concession stand of food available for purchase for your students, all courtesy of our excellent Plano Eastside Boosters!

Busses should drop off students at the flagpoles at the front of the school, and students walk up the central path to the breezeway. Plano East students will greet you as you arrive and guide you to the cafeteria. Plano East students will also be helping competitors navigate the halls. Please keep an eye out for any student wearing a Plano East shirt and ID badge if you have questions!

If you need any help with registering students or have any questions about our tournament, don’t hesitate to reach out to our coaching staff and tournament director.

We hope to see you soon!
