DAY of TOURNAMENT DROPS and CHECK-IN:

All schools are required to text their drops or confirm their attendance by 7:30 am on Saturday morning. We need to know of your drops or if everyone is present!!! Don’t feel comfortable texting?

FOOD:

 

FEES: A fee of $9.00 for each individual entry and $12.00 for Play Acting, Group Interpretation and Duo Interp based on your registration as of Thursday, January 28.

The fees have not been lowered this year because the cost of the NSDA Virtual Campus and postage for medals will more than off set the savings from giving medals and not trophies.

CONFIRMATION:

JUDGES: Each school must provide one judge for every five entries or portion of five entries. Each group, duo or play is considered one entry.  Bring your own judges.  If you are having problems filling a judging assignment, DeForest may be able to hire one for you at $100 per judge. If you wish to have a judge hired for you please e-mail me at taugust@deforestschoools.org by Friday, January 22. Schools are still responsible for their number of judges as of midnight on Thursday, January 28.   

 

JV TEAMS: We will accept JV entries. (Entries over 25 count as JV.) 

 

DeForest Forensics is very excited about our annual tournament.  We wish you all the best and hope to see you on a dry and warm January 30.  If you have any questions, contact Tom August with the options provided below.
