Dear Forensics Colleagues:

Pacific University is pleased to invite you to the annual Hap Hingston Forensics Invitational to be held on January 8-9, 2022. The tournament is named after A.C. “Hap” Hingston. Hap was a faculty member at Pacific University from 1942–1973 and continued serving on Pacific’s Board of Trustees until 1983. He also served as chairperson of the department of communication and the director of forensics for many years. We are proud to have our tournament named after Hap Hingston.

We have a few tournament announcements this year:

  • Due to the specific requirements of hosting an in-person event and how that would affect the tournament experience, we are still a synchronous tournament running through Speechwire and Yaatly this year. Please click the links for specific directions about the platforms. Reach out if you need help to create accounts or if we can walk you through the process. All of our online guides can be found here.

  • We will run IEs on Saturday, January 8 and Debate (including Congress) on Sunday, January 9.

  • To financially help programs again, our fee schedule is designed to just cover operational costs.  Please contact us if any additional discounts would be required. 

  • We will have Congress on Sunday, January 9. Please submit legislation by Friday, Dec 31.

  • Please note our registration and change deadlines are Tuesday, January 4 and Thursday, January 6. We will post schematics on Friday, January 7 so students and coaches can check for errors early.

  • We are delighted to announce that the Top Individual Events Sweepstakes winner will receive a scholarship, should they choose to apply and enroll at Pacific University in the future.

Finally, while we use the OSAA Speech Handbook as a guide, we will not strictly adhere to tournament procedures that govern the OSAA State Championship. This means we will: a) allow exceptions for use of notes, b) utilize unique topic areas in impromptu, c) utilize speaker points to break ties in individual events, and d) maintain brackets in semifinal and finals debate. We believe that we will meet Auto-Qual requirements based on the size of the tournament and usage of Oregon events.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in January.


Entry Deadline: Tuesday, Jan 4, 2022 at 10:00 pm
