DCDS Yellowjacket Invitational 2008

Recommended Posts

Yellowjacket Debate Invitational, Detroit Country Day School



September 12 and 13, 2008


You and your team are invited to attend the Yellowjacket Debate Invitational at Detroit Country Day School.







Some of the important information is as follows:



Location: Detroit Country Day School is at 22305 W. Thirteen Mile, Beverly Hills, Michigan 48025. This is on the southwest corner of 13 mile Road and Lahser Road. Approximately 2 miles north of I-696 or M-10. For those might know the area, we are 1/2 mile west of Groves HS. All rounds will take place at the High School. Please park in the back of the school by the tennis courts.


Registration: 2:30 - 3:00 Friday Sept 12 in the Student Center at the Upper School. The Student Center is located at the back of the building just west of the tennis courts. General meeting at 3:15 first round at 3:45.


Divisions: It's early in the season so we plan to have just one OPEN division. Enter any level of debater. No mavericks please. If we have enough teams we may split to a JV and Varsity. Please mark teams as JV or Varsity on the registration form. We will inform you as the date gets closer if there will be a division split.


Format: 5 prelims and elims (based on entries). The first two rounds will be pre-set all others will be powerpaired.


Judges: You must supply one judge for every 2 teams or fraction thereof. Some judges will be available for hire at $130.00 each, half judges will cost $65. I will take requests as long as I can fill them, so ask early. All judges are required to judge one round beyond the elimination of their team from the tournament. Thus all judges must be available for the first elimination round.


Food: We will sell dinner items on Friday and Lunch on Saturday. Coaches and judges food will be complimentary.


Fees: $50.00 per 2 person team, $130.00 for a hired judge, $65.00 for a half judge.



Entry: Deadline for entry is Wednesday, September 10, 2008--5pm. All fees and judge commitments will be frozen at this time. Please try to enter through EMAIL--rkay@dcds.edu. If you do not get a response within 24 hours please resend. I will respond to all entries as I receive them. You also MUST SEND IN NAMES OF ALL DEBATERS AND JUDGES (including any preclusions) By Thursday Sept. 11, 2008 at 5:00 PM. You will delay the start of the tournament on Friday if you do not send in the appropriate information.


Forfeit:We will use a 15 minute rule for competitors and judges. If you are more than 15 minutes late you risk forfeit for that round. I will apologize right now if I yell at you to get to your rounds--be on time and it won't happen. Teams of offending judges will forfeit and hired judges will not be paid if they are late.


Lodging:See next page


Parking:Our school parking lots are generally full until at least 5:00. Thus, PLEASE CAR POOL OR BRING BUSES IF YOU CAN. There will be limited parking available on Friday. Saturday should be no problem. On both days it will be easier to park in the back of the school. Just follow the road around the west side of the building and it will take you to the back lot.


Contact information: Please direct all correspondence to RUTH KAY

rkay@dcds.edu Email is the best

248-646-7717 School phone (OK but you will have to leave a message and it's difficult for me to return calls during the day.)

810-953-0186 Home phone (Better than school, during the day leave a message because I won't be there!).

248-417-5252 Cell Phone--Usually a very good option (there's voice mail here) but my phone doesn't work in all parts of my school building so you may end up leaving a voice message, and I don’t answer it during class time.

248-646-2458 School Fax—Not an option I would recommend but use it as a last resort and be sure RUTH KAY is on the fax CLEARLY. It has taken a week or more for some faxes to get to me. You decide the level of risk you are willing to take.

I am currently a Groves Assistant coach and attend MSU, there are many available students at MSU (Sophomores and Juniors) who would be available to judge if needed at DCDS. If a school needs a judge, please email me and Ill connect you with someone's email and phone number.

Howdy all,


Just to be friendly, I'm going to disclose that this weekend Okemos will be running a solar powered satellites affirmative, with the major advantage of hegemony. Would anyone else like to do the same?


Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
