Dear Speech Team Coach,
 
We are pleased to invite you to our annual Rolling Meadows Varsity Speech Tournament to be held on January 13, 2018.  As we get deeper into the season, we look forward to hosting you and your students for a fun and competitive day!  Here is the information you need to know.
 
SCHEDULE
This will be a standard 3-round preliminary tournament, with a final round.  We will currently use the schedule from previous years, which broke the 3 rounds into 5 time slots.  As the number of attending teams changes, the schedule will change accordingly.  We will keep you posted!  The first round will start at 8, and finals should start around 2:30.  The schedule will be posted on SpeechWire as well.  Depending on the size of the tournament, we will likely hold Next-In finals as well, so that more kids can get rewarded for their hard work.
 
ENTRIES
Teams will be allowed to enter up to 2 entries in each event.  Please enter through SpeechWire.  Third entries will be considered based upon requests, but cannot be guaranteed.  There are only so many rooms that can be used, and we don't want to be here on Sunday!  Of course, those teams that offer the same courtesy to us will be given priority.  We will absolutely NOT take any adds on the day of the tournament, so plan accordingly!  Once I close SpeechWire to run schematics, there will be no adds!
 
AWARDS
Individual trophies will be given to the top 6 competitors in each event (medals for all other finalists), based on FINAL ROUNDS.  Any Next-In finalists will receive medals as well.  The top 6 teams will also be awarded a trophy.
 
FOOD
Our Speech Team Parents will provide food throughout the day.  Judges and coaches can enjoy food in the Faculty Lounge as well.
 
RULES
The rules for all 14 IHSA events will be followed, with Extemp and Radio prepping twice for Rounds 1 and 2, and once more for finals.  Students can choose EITHER prep for Round 3.  Time violations in radio will be ranked 6th, regardless of the number of competitors.
 
ENTRY FEES AND JUDGES
Please make checks payable to Rolling Meadows High School
1 entry in each event (up to 14 slots) = $120, and please bring 1 judge per 7 entries, rounding up (max of 2)
2 entries in each event (15-28 slots) = $150, and please bring 1 judge per 7 total entries, rounding up (max of 4)
3 entries in each event (29-42 slots) = $200, and please bring 5 judges
 
TOPICS
If you have competitors in Extemp and/or Impromptu, please submit 10 Extemp topics and/or 10 Impromptu topics through SpeechWire as you make your entries.
 
SpeechWire will be open to change entries as your team warrants.  I will close SpeechWire at 7 am on Saturday, January 13.
 
Please email me at mike.concialdi@d214.org if you have any questions or concerns.  You can also reach me at (847) 718-5725.  As the tournament gets closer, I will send out final information for the day.  We look forward to seeing you in January!
 
Sincerely,
Mike Concialdi and the Rolling Meadows High School Speech Team
