  1. The Pennsbury Falcon Invitational is looking to hire CX judges. The tournament is Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1. Finals bid outside Philadelphia, near highways and trains. Lots of requests for judging and a lack of college programs in the city leaves us in need. Please contact pennsburyfalcon@gmail.com. ĵ
  2. The Pennsbury Falcon Invitational is a Finals bid in CX and a full service tournament with all CFL events. The tournament will be held February 3-4 in Fairless Hills, PA. We need judges! Especially CX judges, but also LD, and Speech and Congress. We offer competitive pay, hotel and excellent hospitality, and can reimburse some travel. Plus, it is routinely a great tournament experience. If interested, please contact Tournament Director Jeff Kahn at pennsburyfalcon @ gmail.com.

  16. What's the change? I thought that was always the rule. The question came up for me 2 years ago at Pennsbury, when a team was walked over in Quarters but it is a Finals bid, so they did not receive a ghost bid. Edit: your spreadsheet is super-duper awesome, thanks for doing it!

If you are available to judge, or know someone who might be, please contact Patty Byrnes at patty (dot) byrnes (at) gmail (dot) com. I shall be making my yearly appearance in CX land. See you there!

  22. I believe this is posted in a billion places: the NDCA tournament calendar should have everything. http://www.debatecoaches.org/calendar
  23. That's the link I would have sent you. There is no specific "process" or "requirements" - the committee does its best to find out what tournaments are out there and assess the quality and diversity of competition and the proximity (in time and location) to other bid tournaments. They also consider areas with much more competition than bid opportunities, and such things, as I understand it. This is all second-hand information, I am not on the committee nor have I had detailed conversations about how they find tournaments with anyone who is. If a tournament thinks it deserves a bid, the tournament director should write a letter to the committee, as their website now says (they've done an admirable job of being more transparent in the last year or so).
  24. The size/quality of events at a tournament aren't necessarily related, nor are the TOC committees looking at the same distribution of bids when evaluating a tournament.
  25. Sure, they can claim advantages off of both! They just can't fiat both, because only one is a resolutional mandate. I would think that immediate redeployment is not normal means, so the aff's specification is inherently unpredictable, which gives them a greater advantage than if they are forced to rely on the same research that neg has. If you add the redeployment location in the plan text, you no longer need a piece of evidence that says "troops leaving Iraq will be redeployed to Afghanistan," you only need the impact of wherever you choose for them to go. Any specification is not part of the resolution, even if the question must be resolved. Aff couldn't fiat what to do with coal plants that were no longer necessary on the alternative energy incentives topic, even if it could have been part of the debate. If the 2AC stands up and reads 3 minutes of "troops will go to X place, which is good," then good for them! It might be shady on its own, but as an answer to a disad, it's called a link turn, not shifting. Neg better be sure their evidence is better, but both sides are limited to the evidence they can find. This is the fairest debate, not the one where aff can fiat the link/solvency for their advantage.
