2021 Cal Parli Invitational
2021 — NSDA Campus, CA/US
Supplemental Round Rules
The tournament will follow Supplemental Round Rules 1 and 3, approved by the NPDL Board. These are in addition to the NPDL Online Round Rules.
SUPPLEMENTAL RULE 1:
Debaters shall not cite published sources as support for their arguments. Judges should not give evidentiary weight to cited sources, and should assume the citation may be inaccurate, misquoted or misleading.
(Note that this rule is not protestable. A judge should disregard a citation to a publication, as they would disregard a new argument in rebuttal called out by a point of order.)
SUPPLEMENTAL RULE 3:
The judge should award a win to the team that did the better debating. The judge should award a loss to the other team.
