Dear Forensics Coaches,
The Denmark and Oshkosh West coaches and forensics teams cordially invite you to join us for the Tom Lynch Tribute Tournament on Saturday, March 5th, 2022 held at Oshkosh West High School.  Our teams are very excited to be hosting you in person this year and to welcome you to our tournament!  It should be an exciting day of competition for everyone involved!
Preliminary and final rounds for all events will be held at Oshkosh West High School 375 N. Eagle St., Oshkosh, WI 54902.  We will follow local district COVID protocols throughout the day.  More detailed information will be posted in the FILES section of this event in Speechwire.  
ENTRIES:  Your top 25 varsity entries will count toward your team score with a maximum of 4 entries per category.  Additional entries are welcome.  Students are allowed to DOUBLE or TRIPLE enter; however, students may NOT double/triple enter in BOTH Extemp. AND Radio. Students may only enter ONE draw category. Students who are double and triple entered will be eligible to receive the coveted Rhododendron or Triple Crown Awards, which honor students who earn the most cumulative points based on preliminary rounds in two or three categories, respectively.  
RULES:  WFCA and NCFL rules will be followed for applicable categories along with allowances for WHSFA cross-over events. Please go over any rule changes with your students and judges prior to attending the tournament. Updated rules are available on the WFCA website at www.wfcaforensics.org. We will also be offering Oratorical Declamation again this year for those students preparing for the NCFL national tournament.
JUDGES:  Each school must bring one qualified judge for every five entries or fraction thereof.  We will have a VERY limited number of judges available for hire at $150 per judge. You are responsible for the number of judges that you indicate on your original registration form, plus any adds as of Thursday morning.  Judges must bring technology needed to conduct e-balloting for all rounds and must have a valid email account in Speechwire.  NO PAPER critiques or ballots will be used. 
DEADLINES:  Please register via SpeechWire by 11:00 pm on Wednesday, March 2, 2022.  Teams can and should manage their own drops on SpeechWire until 3:00 pm on Friday, March 4th (entries dropped after that time should be texted to Dave Harper at 920-664-5278 and will still be charged). Please text any other last minute drops by 7:00 am on tournament day to Dave Harper at 920-664-5278.
NOTES:  Confirmations will be sent out by e-mail the week of the tournament.  There will be detailed instructions including numbers to call/text on Saturday morning.  To start the tournament smoothly, each school MUST call/text confirming their registration by 7:30 the morning of the meet even if there are NO changes.  
FEES:  Entry fees are $10.00 per individual entry and $15.00 for each group entry (Play Acting, Duo Interp, or Group Interp).  Fees will be based on your entries as of 3:00 pm on Friday March 4, 2022.  There will be no adds the day of the meet.  Please make checks for fees payable to Oshkosh West High School 375 N.
