Registration and Fees

Registration and Fees

Registration will be available between 7:00 to 11:00 PM on Thursday, December 15th. Registration is on the second floor of Hyatt outside the Mirage Room. We will provide a phone option for registration of local teams and teams arriving late on Thursday night. Please text if possible Shane Stafford at 612-385-1796 or Sandy Berkowitz at 612-385-5944, emails will too, but a quick text to alert us to look for email is always good. We will also turn on on-site registration on for those teams that have paid already.

All entries will be automatically placed on a waiting list. Once the tournament director receives your fees or a copy of your submitted purchase order your entries will be removed from the waiting list and entered into the tournament.

A limited number of hired judges are available for hire, at the cost of $300 per judge.  Please email your intention of using a hired judge.

A hotel fee of $100 will be added to each school's set of fees.  If you stay at the tournament hotel I will remove that fee.

If a judge misses a round there will be a $50 fee per judge per round missed.

REGISTRATION AND FEES DEADLINES:   We are required to pay for the rooms that are used at the hotel for the actual rounds. Because we have to pay for the rooms, it is important that we know the number of teams you are entering as early as possible. After 5PM EST on Monday, December 5th, registration will close.  I will take late registrations if we have room.   Fees will be final after 5PM EST on December 5th, 2015.  All fees must be paid no later than tournament registration.  Any team whose fees are not paid at that time will not be allowed to debate.

Please send fees, in the form of a check (payable to The Blake School) to:
