Hope you had a fantastic holiday season and are ready for the Spring semester. Please join us to kick off 2018 with MAFL #5 and MAFL #6, hosted on the Northern Illinois University campus on Saturday, January 27 and Sunday, January 28. Thanks in advance to Judy Santacaterina for her hospitality.

Reminders for MAFL #5:

  • MAFL #5 is a Novice Recognition tournament. When you register students for each event, please specify whether they are in the Novice or Open division. A Novice is a student in their first year of collegiate forensics competition.
  • We are now accepting hosting bids for the 2018-19 MAFL season. These must be submitted to rbuel@monmouthcollege.edu by Sunday, January 28. You can find details about hosting requirements on the MAFL website: www.mafl.info. 

Entries: Each school may enter 6 students per event. Each student may enter up to 4 events. Because of the 1 hour and 15 minute time limit for each round, it is strongly recommended that students are only double-entered and not triple-entered in a pattern. It is the responsibility of the student to make it to their rounds on time. Judges cannot wait past the time allotted for the round. Students may not enter all 4 events in one pattern.

*Entries are due Tuesday, January 23 by 5:00 pm CST. After this point, no additional entries will be accepted, however, changes and drops can be made on SpeechWire until Wednesday, January 24 at 12:00 pm.*

Fees: Please remember that at the first MAFL you attend, you will be required to submit your yearly membership dues of $300.00. This payment entitles your school to attend all of the remaining 2017-18 MAFLs. A non-member school may attend 1 MAFL weekend per season without paying membership dues, but instead pay $8 per entered slot and uncovered judge fees.

Beyond your one-time membership dues, the only fees you will pay at each tournament are for uncovered or dropped slots. Each full-time judge covers 6 slots, and uncovered slots are $10 each. If you bring more than 20 uncovered slots, the fee will be increased to $20 for each slot beyond 20.

*All fees will be assessed on Wednesday, January 24 at 12:00 pm. After this point, there will be a $10 charge for each dropped slot.*

Please do not hesitate to contact me (rbuel@monmouthcollege.edu, 805-404-1649) if you have any questions about MAFL tournaments or using Speechwire to register. Hoping to see many of you in DeKalb!
