Welcome to the Worlando Beach Invitational. We are excited to have all of you join us this year
in beautiful sunny Worland! Please read the following carefully so you don't miss something
We will offer all regular events in two patterns HOPEIC and Ds. A complete schedule is below.
There will be 4 rounds of CX, PF and LD and 3 rounds of all other events, plus semis and finals
of most events. However, if some events have low entry numbers, these might go straight to
State rules will apply unless otherwise indicated in this invitation.
We will be double-flighting LD and PF Debate if possible.
The topics will be the January NSDA topics for LD and PF.
Policy: Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase financial
redistribution by adopting either 1. Basic Income 2. Federal Job Guarantee and/or 3. Expanding
Ties in debate will be broken by power of opposition first, followed by ranks, then speaker
Congressional Debate will be in the HOPE pattern.
The legislation will be chosen from the Wyoming State database corresponding to the
competitors who are entered on Tabroom. Please make sure your student’s legislation is in the
database at least two weeks before the tournament if you would like it to be on the docket. To
submit legislation email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will release the docket to registered schools on 1/7/23. Super Congress legislation will be
taken from various sources, and will be released along with the regular docket.
Questions will be taken from November, December, & January NFHS topics (available through
the link in the State Newsletter Londe sends out each month) and NSDA questions (available on NSDA site). The format will be that of the state rule passed two years ago, and judges will have copies of the speakers' questions. Draw will take place at 7-minute intervals, and will be embedded into the HOPEIC pattern.
Manuscript/visual aid usage
Poetry and POI competitors must use a manuscript. All other events are memorized. Informative Speaking competitors may use visual aids.
Policy, Lincoln-Douglas, Public Forum, Extemp and Congressional Debate participants may all use the internet in strict adherence to the following rules:
Many judges will be Worland community members but we would welcome any accompanying
judges for each team. Most likely, we will need to use some coaches for back-up in case of "no-
show" judges. Please register your judges on Tabroom. All judges must have linked Tabroom
accounts in order to be scheduled for ballots.
ENTRY LIMITS AND DEADLINES
Each school has a limit of 4 per event, and 3 in CX. We also have event limits in place to ensure
the tournament doesn't get too big. However, please put all your extra entries on the waitlist.
We really do think we will be able to take them as we adjust rooms and judges, but we have lost
the availability of some rooms this year.
In general, our tournament format encourages double entering. However, CX will not be allowed
to double within the pattern. Students who double within a pattern do so at their own risk.
Final registration entry adds are due on Wednesday, 11 January 2023.
Only drops or substitutions will be allowed after the final registration deadline (no adds).
Registration will be through Tabroom. All changes and drops should be done online, in
