We will be introducing Powers at this year’s tournament to reward players who buzz earlier. We will NOT be penalizing students for incorrect answers (negs).
We are currently capping the field at 18 teams. The field can expand if there is more interest and more importantly staff. Last year there was interest, but staffing was what kept us from expanding.
Matches will begin at 9:00 AM, and there will be a lunch break around 12:00-12:30 PM. Lunch options are mostly in neighboring towns (10 minute drive at least). Our Speech & Debate team is handling concessions this year and will likely continue the grilling of Hamburgers and Chicken sandwiches that has happened in the past. I will get concession pricing together soon. I don't plan on the tournament going any later than 5:00 PM (Last year we finished at 3:45).
