Hello MAFL Friends!

 

I hope you will join us for MAFL #1 hosted synchronously on Yaatly (with entries on Speechwire) on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Although we will be competing virtually, we want to extend our sincerest thanks to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire for previously volunteering to host. Thank you as well to the University of Illinois-Chicago and Northern Illinois University for providing Impromptu and Extemp prompts.

 

The Mid-America Forensic League is committed to inclusiveness and welcomes students and coaches from all identities and social roles. In light of ongoing harassment and discrimination, MAFL stands in solidarity with and will continue to offer a safe, educational space for our most vulnerable members. In this spirit, if you (students, coaches, or judges) encounter any issues that impede your ability to be mentally and physically well at the tournament, please seek out the MAFL Wellness Advocate. The MAFL Vice President, Sade Barfield, is serving as the 2020-2021 MAFL Wellness Advocate.

 

Reminder: MAFL #1 will feature a Coaches Meeting and we will elect at-large members to the tournament committee. If you are interested in being nominated for an at-large position, but won’t be at MAFL #1, please inform a member of the board.

 

Note for MAFL #1: MAFL #1 will not be a swing. At the coaches meeting, we will discuss with the MAFL membership if they would prefer 1 or 2 tournaments for the remainder of the MAFL weekends given our new virtual format.

Entries: Each school may enter 6 students per event. Each student may enter up to 4 events. Because of the 1 hour and 15-minute time limit for each round, it is strongly recommended that students are only double-entered and not triple-entered in a pattern. It is the responsibility of the student to make it to their rounds on time. Judges cannot wait past the time allotted for the round. Students may not enter all 4 events in one pattern.

*Entries are due on SpeechWire by Tuesday, September 22 at 5:00 pm CDT. After this point, no new entries will be accepted, however, changes and drops may be made on the SpeechWire website until Wednesday, September 23 at 12:00 pm.*

Fees: Please remember that at the first MAFL you attend, you will be required to submit your yearly membership dues of $300.00. This payment entitles your school to attend all of the remaining 2020-2021 MAFLs. A non-member school may attend 1 MAFL weekend per season without paying membership dues, but instead, pay $8 per entered slot and uncovered judge fees.

Beyond your one-time membership dues, the only fees you will pay at each tournament are for uncovered or dropped slots. Each full-time judge covers 6 slots, and uncovered slots are $10 each. If you bring more than 20 uncovered slots, the fee will be increased to $20 for each slot beyond 20.

Payment: This year, MAFL will accept both checks and digital payments. For check payments, checks can be made out to “Mid America Forensics League” and mailed to the mailing address below. For digital payments, please reach out to Kevin Hill for more information (contact information is below).

*All fees will be assessed on Wednesday September 23 at 12:00 pm. After this point there will be a $10 charge for each dropped slot.*

Please do not hesitate to contact me (HillKA28@uww.edu or 630-624-6740) if you have any questions about MAFL tournaments or using SpeechWire.

 

Best,

 

Kevin Hill

MAFL Tournament Director
