Please note that we will be highly flexible on Saturday. If Round 3 is the final round for speech events, those rounds are probably NOT going to be held at 8:30 am on Saturday. We will hold Debate and Speech rounds concurrently as soon as judge needs and cross-entry restrictions permit. Although the number of required debate rounds is fairly predictable, some speech events may need as many as 7 rounds, while others may need as few as 3.

 

Awards could end up being considerably earlier than 7:30, especially if we can accelerate the schedule.

 

Bottom line: do not leave campus thinking you have some time between rounds. You may end up missing rounds.
