Okemos 2006 Debate Tournament

FRIDAY 09/29/2006 AND SATURDAY 09/30/2006

 

The Okemos High School Debate team is pleased and proud to invite you to our second annual Debate Tournament. This year we are holding our tournament at the High School, which gives us substantially more room for entries!

 

DIVISIONS AND FEES

We will offer Varsity (Open) 2P and Novice 2P divisions of policy debate. Both will have 5 prelims. Open will break to octas, and Novice will break to semis unless entry conditions require a schedule revision. The fee to enter a team in either division is $35, and the fee for each half-hire (covering one 2P team) is $60.

 

Please make checks payable to Orion Smith. If your school does not allow this contact Orion and we will make appropriate arrangements. Should you need to hire a judge please let Orion know ASAP.

 

 

TOURNAMENT PAIRING

 

We will offer two randomly paired rounds followed by three high-low within brackets debates. We will allow judge strikes for about 10% of our Varsity (Open) judging pool.

 

REGISTRATION

 

There are two methods of registration. If you prefer email or if the online system is not yet functional when you wish to register, please send your registration to Orion Smith at smithori@msu.edu with the following information: school, number of teams, divisions, names of debaters and judges as those become available. A sample email will be available on our tournament website. When it becomes available you may also register online at the Okemos website, http://okemos.debateteams.net/tournament.aspx. Fees will be frozen at 5:00 PM the Wednesday before the tournament.

 

MIFA MEETING 09/29

 

The MIFA Forensic Council will meet on the Friday of our event (09/29) at Okemos High School from 9AM-2PM, in the Library Media Center. If you are on the Council you will receive separate communication about this event.

 

LODGING

 

Once again we are “blessed” to have a large MSU football game sharing our weekend, this time the Homecoming game vs. Illinois. Expect some traffic increases on Saturday morning. This also affects available lodging. We were not able to secure any room blocks at hotels right by the tournament, but were again able to make a deal with the Lansing Days Inn at a $64 rate. This hotel is within easy driving distance of the tournament.

 

Days Inn

6501 South Pennsylvania, Lansing MI 48911

HOUSING

 

We are committed to housing as many individuals as we can arrange for: please contact Orion Smith for details.

 

SCHEDULE

 

Registration on Friday 09/29 is from 2:35 to 3:15 in the cafeteria. Complete tournament schedule will be available at the tournament website.
