  2. The 2010 edition of the Round Up will be hosted on May 7 and 8. It's open for registration on jot. http://www.joyoftournaments.com/tx/roundup/ Let me know if you have any questions. Tim Mahoney Director of Debate, St. Mark's School of Texas 10600 Preston Road Dallas, TX 75230 email: pacedebate@aol.com 214-346-8141 office 214-734-3673 cell 425-740-9130 fax
  3. Almost any open varsity tournament counts. The reason more tournaments don't show up is because the tournament directors haven't sent in their data. If you are trying to qualify you can just send me your records and I'll figure out your points manually. Tim Mahoney Director, 2010 NDCA Championships
  4. The joy of tournaments website is now open for entries. http://www.joyoftournaments.com/dc/ndca/register.asp Tournament participants will be determined using the following qualification procedures: Policy debate and public forum debate competition is considered a team activity. A team is comprised of two individuals from the same degree granting institution. Debaters registering for the NDCA Championships will automatically be placed on a waiting list until they achieve qualifying status, as detailed below. The Public Forum division of the NDCA Championships will accept up to sixty teams. Any team that has reached elimination rounds in varsity competition will be eligible to enter the tournament. Schools may enter up to four teams and put additional teams on the waiting list. After March 15 teams will be released from the waiting list until the tournament is full. Once a policy team or LD'r is on the waiting list the tournament director will review their points earned using the NDCA points database. You can view your debaters points earned in preliminary competition so far this year by going to http://ndca.joyoftournaments.com/. Policy teams and LD'rs will be released off the waiting list immediately if they have earned at least 300 points and if they apply prior to March 15 and until 75 teams have been admitted to the tournament. The application deadline is April 1. On April 1 an additional 53 entries in each event will be released from the waiting list even if some of those applicants don’t have 300 points. Applications will be accepted, regardless of point total, after April 1 until there is 128 entries in each event or until the Monday preceding the start of the tournament whichever comes first. The list entries will be made publicly available. Virtually any tournament can count toward qualification. If there is a tournament not included in your students points earned so far this year please contact NDCA Championships tournament director, Tim Mahoney, at pacedebate@aol.com A policy team may apply even if they haven’t debated together previously or if they haven’t debated at five tournaments together. In this instance each individuals best five tournaments regardless of partner are counted, then divided by two, and then the two individual scores are added together to create the team point total. The policy team with the highest point total using this qualification system that attends the NDCA Championships will be awarded The David P. Baker Award for Season Long Excellence. To be considered for this award a team must have debated together at all five tournaments used for qualification. The Lincoln-Douglas debater with the highest point total using the qualification system that attends the NDCA Championships will be awarded The Patricia Bailey and Marilee Dukes Cup for Season Long Excellence. If you have any questions feel free to email me. Thanks, Tim Mahoney Director, 2010 NDCA Championships Director of Debate, St. Mark's School of Texas 10600 Preston Road Dallas, TX 75230 214-346-8141 214-734-3673 cell 425-740-9130 fax

  6. Here is the Top 10 list from last year. One caveat: this is a list of the Top 10 teams who planned to attend the NDCA Championships. Prior to the work that Brent at joyoftournaments did it was a nightmare to figure everyone's points so unless people submitted their spreadsheets we didn't bother to figure their points. Colleyville Heritage High School Evan DeFilippis - James Hamraie 1552 Stratford Academy William Karlson - Brian Cole 1357 Cathedral Prep Leo Hayes - Mike Carlotti 1312 St. Mark's School of Texas Alex Katz - Jordan Blumenthal 1303 Bishop Guertin HS Chris Power - Katryna Cadle 1122 Groves High School Sophia Goren - Maya Bhardwaj 1111 Damien High School Andres Gannon - Trevor Chenoweth 1014 Woodward Academy Evan Matthews - Brittany Nehman 1008 Glenbrook North High School Debbie Oh - Lucy Zhu 879 Lakeland District Debate Jason Wright - Taylor Roth 873
  7. Registration for the Round Up is now open at http://www.joyoftournaments.com/tx/roundup/ This year it will be held on Friday and Saturday May 8-9. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me, however, email me directly at pacedebate@aol.com I rarely check cross-x.com or the associated email function. thanks, Tim Mahoney
  8. The website for the NDCA Championships has been opened. The 2009 tournament hosts will be the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the forensics programs of Clark County and Ted W. Belch. The tournament will offer 7 preliminary rounds of competition in one open division of policy debate, one open division of Lincoln-Douglas debate and one open division of Public Forum debate.. The tournament will be held on April 18-20, 2009. You can register at: http://www.joyoftournaments.com/nv/ndca/ This year you will not have to submit spreadsheets. The qualification procedure is essentially the same but we now have a database that helps calculate your students points. A full description of the process is available on the website and if you have questions feel free to contact me. Thanks, Tim Mahoney Director, 2009 NDCA Championships
  9. Brent Hinkle (of joyoftournaments.com) has done a LOT of work to create a database that allows you to search by school, judge, or team. It will then show you, for example, every debate "Mahoney, Tim" has judged this year and the results from those debates. It can also search by school or debaters individual name. It's very similar to the college "debateresults.com". Brent has also been working on getting it to figure the points for The Baker award that the NDCA gives at the end of the year to recognize season long excellence and so at the bottom of each tournament for a given team it shows the number of points a team earned toward qualifying for the NDCA tournament and toward winning The Baker. What we really need now is for tournaments to send in their data. Basically, the tab room just needs to send their TRPC data to brent@joyoftournaments.com Right now I think we just have Newman Smith, Grapevine, Wake, and Greenhill. This is already a pretty neat development but it would be really awesome if completed tournaments would send in their data. Anything you can do to help tournament directors send in their TRPC data would be greatly appreciated.

We usually attract a diverse field of competitors that include some of the best novices in the country but also students with less experience. Each school is invited to bring up to 4 teams until we reach our limit of 32 teams. Let me know if you have any questions.

  14. Below is the list of teams that are currently entered in the NDCA Championships.
