2015 — WI/US
Your Team is invited to the West Bend Debate Tournament
West Bend High Schools Saturday, November 7, 2015
1305 E. Decorah Rd. 53095
Teams: We’re planning: VSS, V-4, NSS, N-4, Experienced L-D, Novice L-D, Experienced Public Forum
and Novice Public Forum. However, any division could be cancelled or combined if there’s low
participation. Novice means first year debater. Therefore, for example, a 2014 policy debater who has
switched to L-D for this year is not a novice. This will be a DQ offense.
Topics: Policy - the surveillance thing. L-D and PF plan to use the November NSDA (NFL) topics.
Awards: Each debater on a winning team will receive an award. Ties will be broken.
Food: Breakfast fare. Lunch fare. All day junk food. West Cafeteria
Judges/Coaches/Bus Drivers: Room will be East Cafeteria. Morning goodies and coffee. Lunch around
Judge Requirements: One for every 1 or 2 policy teams entered. Two for every 3 or 4 policy teams. We have separate pools for each division. You need to fulfill your obligation in each pool you enter.
One for every four-person team entered.
One for every 1 or 2 L-Der’s. Two for every 3 or 4 L-Der’s etc.
One for every 1 or 2 PF teams Two for every 3 or 4 PF teams. etc.
Judges will be used in separate pools but could be switched to help us deal with conflict situations.
Last year several teams came without the correct numbers of judges. Trust me, I will notice. I intend to
bill your school $150 per missing judge.
