Judges: Please bring one judge for every five entries or fraction thereof (6 entries = 2 judges).  Students with 200 or more NFL Points are invited to judge at this tournament.  
Events:  All IHSFA Speech Events will be offered. This includes Informative and POI.  Additionally, Improv Duo will be offered in order to give your Novice students an excuse to double enter without preparing an additional piece.

All events will go four rounds.  There will be no final rounds.
Divisions:  Only Novice will be offered at this tournament.  Novice students are defined as either first year members or students with 50 or fewer NFL points.  If your school does not enter NFL points, please only bring first year members.  Duos with only one Novice member are welcome to attend with their Varsity partner provided the Varsity student only competes in events with their Novice partner (i.e. Duo, Improv Duo, or an O.P. duo). If you have questions about student eligibility, please contact me at your leisure. 
Caps:  Maximum number of entries we can facilitate 225.  Each team is permitted 6 entries per event (no exceptions).  Each team is also limited to a maximum of 40 entries overall.  After we have reached our maximum capacity we will no longer be able to accept entries.

We look forward to seeing you on October 21st.
