Contestants can double at their own risk in every event except for Discussion, Congress,and WSD. Contestants may triple in IMPROV DUO ONLY. 
There will be no novice competition at this meet.   
In order to give students practice for the major tournaments, we will run three rounds, a semi-final, and a final in all events. 
If competitors are doubled in Impromptu, they should go to Impromptu first and may then leave the room.
Extemp Draw is @ 8:30 AM. Students will draw again for 3rd round and again for finals.
