Registration: Please have preliminary registrations completed by 3:30 pm on Monday, March 18. Double entries will be allowed in all categories (including draw categories and discussion). All students double entered will be marked on ballots for judge reference.
Judges: Please provide one judge for every 6 entries or fraction thereof. Judges should be prepared to judge ALL events.   I may have a small number of judges to hire. Teams who do not bring enough judges will be charged $100 for every missing judge.
Fees:  $7.00 per entry including Duos.  Please make checks payable to Pipestone Area Schools or PAS.  Please turn in checks at registration or mail them to Pipestone Area Schools, Attn: Monica Sullivan.
Concessions: We will have a variety of concessions available that day.
Awards: Awards will be given to the top 6 students in each category as well as sweepstakes trophies. There will be large and small team trophies based on the number of entries for each team. The divide between small and large teams will be determined the day of the tournament.
** If the number of entries in a category warrant it, we may also have Honor/Next-In Finals.
Draw Intervals: A few years ago, the MSHSL rules for draw intervals for all draw categories changed.  All draws will take place at 8 minute intervals.  Please remind your judges that students should be allowed their full 30 minute prep time before speaking.
Draws: All stories for ER and Storytelling will be used.
Discussion: Tasks will come from Areas III and IV of the MSHSL outline.
Time Limits: As this is the last tournament prior to sub-section competition, I urge all students to follow time limits.  HOWEVER, there will be no disqualifications or rank adjustments for time violations. Judges will be asked to keep and record times on critiques. Please encourage your judges to bring stop watches.
Parking:  Students may be dropped off at the high school (east) entrance, also known as the circle drive, or the middle school (west) entrance.  Buses may park in the lot to the east of the gym.  Students may leave personal items in the commons or in the auditorium. 
Entry Deadline: Please submit your registrations via SpeechWire no later than Monday, March 18 at 3:30 pm.  Adds and Drops may be made to registrations up to Friday, March 22 at 3:30 without penalty.  You may continue to drop students after that time, but you will still be charged for your entries as of Friday and will be expected to bring the judges needed as of your registrations Friday.
