The penalty for a judge failing to report to a preliminary debate is $50 a round missed. For an elimination round this penalty is a $100. This includes when a judge is obligated to the tournament for judging and fails to report a scheduled round even if a replacement judge is secured.
These penalties have to be paid before a team is allowed to advance to the next stage of elimination debates (i.e. if a preliminary fine is incurred, the team will not be able to clear unless the fine is paid).
