West Bloomfield Debate Invitational

Dear Colleague,

You and your team are invited to the West Bloomfield Invitational Debate Tournament on November 18th &19th 2005. This year’s tournament will be an exciting competition that represents the new changes and reflects the changing phases of the West Bloomfield Debate Program. Varsity, JV and Novice policy debates will be held at West Bloomfield High School. We hope to have a very competitive tournament as novice states are right around the corner. Last year’s tournament ended up being a great prep for novice states for a number of teams!

FORMATS

Two-person Varsity (Friday/Saturday) - This division will participate in five rounds of swing debate. Three of the preliminary rounds will be power paired. The number of elimination rounds will depend on the number of entries.

Two-person JV (Friday/Saturday) – The format for this division will be the same as the Varsity.

Two-person Novice (Friday/Saturday) – There will be two preset rounds and three power paired rounds. The number of elimination rounds will depend on the number of entries.

*****Lunch and all elimination rounds will be at West Bloomfield High School*****

JUDGES

You must provide one judge per four debaters in each division (i.e., one judge covers two teams). You may not use one judge in more than one division, other than JV and Varsity, which will be tabbed together (thus, if you need a half-judge in Varsity and a half-judge in JV, you need two half-judges not one judge to cover both positions). JUDGES ARE OBLIGATED ONE ROUND PAST YOUR TEAM’S ELIMINATION!!!! Hired judges are limited (first come, first serve) at a cost of $75 for a half-judge and $150 for a full judge. If you know of people who want to judge, have them let us know.

FEES

The entry fee per Varsity/JV and a two-person novice is $45. The entry fee per novice unit is $45. Please make checks payable to the West Bloomfield Debate or Joel Thursam.

AWARDS

Each team advancing beyond preliminary rounds will receive a trophy. There will be ten speaker awards for varsity, ten speaker awards for each novice division, and seven for junior varsity. We ask that you stay for awards if possible, and help celebrate the accomplishments of other teams.

DEADLINES

Entries must be received by Wednesday, November 16th, 2005 at 8pm. Fees are frozen at 8pm of that Wednesday.
