Sioux Falls Lincoln Silver Bowl
2017 — SD/US
ONLINE BALLOTS - We would like to be able to use online ballots as much as possible in LD and Policy. Please try to have judges create a tabroom account. There will be chromebooks available for checkout on Saturday for judges to be able to complete online ballots.
Structure - We will run 3 prelims of speech with Finals for the Top 6 and Honor Finals for 7-12. We will offer Novice, Junior Varsity, and Varsity in all three debate events (Policy, LD, PFO). Please be sure to check out the events page for specific guidelines when entering students in events. If numbers do not warrant some divisions they will be collapsed.
New Design This Year The Schedule this year has been changed significantly from previous years.
Friday will be Speech only. All three prelim rounds and Finals will happen.
All debate will take place on Saturday. LD and PFO will be flighted – 5 Prelim rounds – Semis and finals for Varsity/JV and Finals For novice. Policy will have 5 prelim rounds. There is a final scheduled for Varsity Policy if needed after awards. In the past for Policy events, the fields have been so small that there is usually a clear winner without the need of a final.
You can find a copy of the schedule listed on the right side under the INFO Heading.
