Dear Speech Coach(es),
It is our pleasure to invite you to the 9th Annual Whirlwind Speech Invite, hosted at Orchard, that will be held on January 20, 2018.  We hope to provide you and your students with a day of quality competition, learning, and fun!
 
The competition will include divisions for both Novice and Varsity speakers in all NSAA sanctioned events.  The varsity tournament format will be two preliminary and a finals round with events of ten or more entries.  The top six varsity entries in each event will receive medals.  A sweepstakes award will be presented to the top novice and varsity teams.
 
The fee for each entry is $7.00.  For every six entries, you must provide one judge to cover them.  For each uncovered slot, a fee of $15.00 will be charged to overall entry.  Please make an attempt to bring judges with you as our pool of experienced judges is limited.
 
We are limiting the number of teams to 10.  Registration will take place using the online program, SpeechWire.  A code and additional information will follow this invitation soon.  Since we plan to utilize this online service, entries don't need to be entered until January 17, 2018 @ 12:00 a.m.  Entry fees are frozen at this time.  
 
A tentative schedule is:
7:007:45 Registration in Student Lounge
8:00 Round 1A 
8:30 Extemp Draw  Round 1
9:15 Round 1B 
10:30  Round 2A 
11:00 Extemp Draw-Round 2
11:45 Round 2B 
1:00 Finals Varsity Flight A 
1:30 Extemp Draw Finals (if needed)
2:15 Finals Varsity Flight B 
4:15 (or ASAP) Awards in Gymnasium
 
We are currently making arrangements for a concession stand. Lunch will be provided for coaches and judges in the hospitality room.   
 
As the speech season will be just in its beginning stages, we ask that competitors consider this meet a learning opportunity.  It is then requested by the speech director of this meet that as a common courtesy that unless a competitor is double entered or has to draw for extemp, all speakers in a round stay and watch the entire round as considerate audience members.  Socializing and music should be kept to a minimum and monitored by speech coaches in the commons area which is the gymnasium.
