Golden Desert Debate Tournament at UNLV 2020
2020 — Las Vegas, NV/US
Entry fees can be payed with credit card (email me the completed credit card authorization form on the website), check (mailed in), or cash.
On BOTH Saturday and Sunday, the tournament will provide all participants a light breakfast, snacks throughout both days, and two delicious catered lunches. We have altered our tournament fee structure slightly in order to bring our fees closer to other tournament fees and to more closely align with tournament hosting expenses, labor, and other outlays. THESE FEES DO NOT APPLY TO INDEPENDENT ENTRIES. PLEASE SEE THE “INDEPENDENT ENTRIES” SECTION OF THE INVITATION FOR MORE INFO ON INDEPENDENT ENTRY FEES
Varsity Policy Team-$120/team
Novice Policy Team-$120/team
Varsity LD -$80/debater
Varsity Public Forum-$110/team
Fees must be paid in advance to move your registration from “wait list” to “confirmed” status. If you have entries on the wait list after January 6, 2020, and have not yet paid, those entries will be removed.
DROP FEES: Drops may occur with full refund until 5:00 pm on January 20, 2020. Note: processing refunds through the UNLV accounts payable office is likely to take a painfully long time. After 5:00 pm on January 20, 2020, drops will accrue the loss of entry fees and a $10 per contestant drop fee (teams will be charged $20). After midnight January 27, 2020, the drop fee will increase to $20 per contestant ($40 per team).
HIRED JUDGING: (must be requested by Jan. 4, 2020): $60 covers 1 round of policy debate or 1 round (2 flights) of Lincoln-Douglass Debate. You may only hire up to one full commitment judge (6 total rounds). Hired judging requests must be made by midnight January 4, 2020, and must be paid for at the time of the request. No hired judging fees will be refunded, even if you drop the entry/entries that the hired judge is covering.
SCHOOL FEE: A $200 per school fee will automatically be added to your tournament invoice on tabroom.com. The purpose of this fee is to encourage tournament attendees to stay in our host hotels. If you do so, and contact me, I will happily remove this fee from your invoice. Please email me at email@example.com with the “TOURNAMENT HOTEL FEE” in the subject heading, include name of the tournament hotel where you are staying, as well as the name that the reservations are under, and I will remove the fee from your tabroom.com invoice. Our intention is not to make any money from this fee. We just need to fill our hotel blocks so we can continue to utilize them for tournament competition space on Monday, and are not charged for not meeting our attrition rate.
