Wednesday, January 20th, 2021 at 3:00pm (drops and adds – all drops after this point will not result in a change of statement)
Entry Limits:
We will need to cap events at 90 in order to make the breaks to out rounds doable. 
Entry Fees:
$7 per entry/$14 per duo
**We will be charging a $25 team fee to help cover the cost of tech needs associated with the tournament (NSDA Campus & Zoom Rooms)
Checks payable to Chanhassen High School Boosters
Entry Changes:
Entry changes (drops or adds) can be made on the speechwire.com tournament site up until the end of registration. For this reason, registration must be completed promptly by 7:45 AM or a phone call to 612-408-7139 must be made to report your team drops.
Novice/Varsity Split:
Because this tournament is so early in the season, we will be splitting novice and varsity competitors in all categories. We will not have novice final rounds (so novices can make it over to the high school to watch varsity finals). It would be our hope that novice competitors would go to the varsity final rounds for their categories to watch their eloquence via livestreams. A novice competitor is a first-year speech competitor or one who has switched from PA to Interp or the other way around.
Double Entering/Triple Entering:
Double entering is allowed in ALL categories, including discussion. Discussion will have start 15 minutes early to accommodate those double entries (discussants should not double enter in a draw category). Draw category double entries are allowed, but students should not double enter in 2 draw categories. Triple entry will be allowed as long as the student is not in more than 1 draw category. Students double and triple enter at their own risk!! 
Judging Requirements:
Teams need to bring 1 judge for every 6 entries or fraction thereof. A small number of judges will be available for hire at $80 for the day. Please email Travis Rother if you need to hire a judge by Monday, January, 18th.
Judging Finals:
We ask that ALL judges be available to judge final rounds. If you have any coaches at the tournament who are not judging, please consider making them available for final rounds, it will provide for a much richer experience for our competitors. We would like to offer panels of 5 judges for varsity finals if we can make it work. Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.
Tournament Format:
Novice: Three preliminary rounds 
Varsity: Three preliminary rounds and a final
