LD Schedule

LD Schedule

**Note: The events assigned to each building are subject to change based on registration numbers. If there are changes, we will make an announcement and update the information here**

All Lincoln-Douglas rounds (preliminary and elimination rounds) in both divisions at the Minneapple will be hosted at Apple Valley High School. The number of elims is subject to change depending on entries in each division.

Decision Times

This year we are implementing a decision-time VLD. Decision time means there will be a deadline by which the judge must decide each debate. Each round’s decision time deadline is based on the Tabroom pairing start time. If the judge does not enter a decision in tabroom by the decision time, it is within the Tabroom’s power to assign the winner of that debate randomly. We intend to enforce this, but we hope we don't have to.

For prelims, we will enforce a 75 minutes decision time. For elims, it will be 80 minutes.

The number of elims may vary depending on the number of entries.
