Please bring your check for registrations on the morning of the tournament, and be prepared to provide the hired judge fees at ratio agreed to.

Concessions will be available to students and a light luncheon will be provided to coaches, judges, and bus drivers.
Awards will be presented to all speakers who show superior ability and to the top three scoring teams.  
Please ensure that your speakers are aware of the rules and etiquette of their categories and competition and that your judges are aware of MSHSL rules, expectations regarding keeping explicit ballots and writing critiques that provide speakers with appropriate feedback and suggestions.
Discussers will be using the appropriate subject area as recommended for the date by the MSHSL.
Assistance from experienced head coaches will be welcome in the tab room and ballot drop.  We look forward to seeing you in Blackduck on March 16th.
Double entries ARE allowed - but NO triple entries, and there is no lag time set up for double-entries in Draw Events. Speakers in draw events and discussion should prioritize those categories for the sake of moving the tournament along.
