Predicted Schedule for Speech

All Speech events will have 3 Preliminary rounds, 2 on Friday night and one on Saturday. All competitors MUST attend both days.

All of these times are predicted, as the tournament may be disrupted by protests, etc. A coach or school-affiliated adult representative from the school(s) competing in the debate or a judge for the round must notify the tabulation committee of intent to submit an appeal or formal post-round allegation within 20 minutes of the end of the round. The 20-minute time period begins once the last ballot from all rounds has been collected by the tabulation committee.
