Hello Coaches,

Welcome to the Annual Cary-Grove Winter Invite 2017. This competition will be a Varsity Competition. We are so excited to host wonderful teams and competitors. This year, our theme will be Star Wars: Jedis. 
Entry fees for teams with less than 28 entries (2 slots per event) is $175. Teams with 28-42 (or requiring 3 entries in an event) will be asked to pay $225 per team. We have done our best historically to accommodate large teams. We hope to continue to do this. Should you need additional entries, please email as soon as possible. While we cannot guarantee extra entries, we will try our best to allow students to compete as long as we have the space and the judges to support this. 
Entry fees should be sent to Cary-Grove High School, 2208 Three Oaks Road, Cary, IL 60013. Please make the attention out to the Cary-Grove Speech Team. Entry fees are required at the beginning of the tournament on Saturday, December 2nd. If this is not possible, please contact the tournament manager, Stephanie Sukow at ssukow@d155.org. Documentation from the school stating that a check is pending is required. We enjoy hosting your teams. 
Teams will be asked to provide 1 judge per every 6 entries. Judges are expected to stay for the full day (including final rounds). All teams will be responsible for final round judging entries as assigned. 
The rounds will be flighted, but we run very much on time (or early). We will follow the schedule below:
  • Registration 7:00 AM
  • Coaches/Judges Meeting: 7:40 AM
  • R1: 8:00 AM
  • R2: 9:30 AM
  • R3: 10:45 AM
  • R4: 12:00 PM 
  • Final rounds will begin at 2:00 PM 
  • Awards will start promptly at 4 PM or before. We will hopefully be completely done by 4:30 PM. We've beaten that time in the past! 
During the day of the tournament, there will be a physical drop board posted near the tab room but also a digital one available through Google Drive.  If you or your judges have a smartphone, you will be able to check the drop board, as well as any individual moves, as it updates the day of the tournament.  I will post QR codes in each room that will take you directly to that document.  Ask your judges to download a QR scanner if they don't already have one! Maps will be available in the hallways via QR codes as well.  Do not worry if you are not a smartphone user, as physical copies will be provided as well.
Radio and Extemp will prep during Round 1, 2, and final rounds. Prep will begin at 8:45 am and will take place in the Media Center. Please enter through the main doors, near the flag pole, take a left past the main office and another left after the main office to get to the Media Center. This is where headquarters will be located. Your help is greatly appreciated and welcomed! I will be closing registration on Friday, December 1st at 4pm.  If you have any drops please be sure to call them after that or on your way to the tournament.  My phone number is (847) 323-2448.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We can't to host you this year and May the force be with you,
Steph Sukow
