  Hastings College PROUDLY HOSTS:       
The FIFTH ANNUAL BroncoLope Tournament
 
 
August 2017
 
 
The coaches and students of Hastings College (Broncos) and the University of Nebraska-Kearney (Lopers) invite you and your students to a tournament on November 11 & 12, 2017.  
 
This tournament is an open invitational for all undergraduate competitors who meet the eligibility requirements of the AFA-NIET.  Unless an event is very small, we will offer two preliminary rounds and finals in the eleven AFA events. All finalists will be recognized with trophies.
 
Entries must be submitted to Speechwire before 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 7, 2017.  The Speechwire address is www.speechwire.com Those coaches who have run or attended tournaments with last minute cancellations realize the trauma caused to the tournament director and the students.  Hoping to discourage this, fees will be assessed on the basis of information received as of 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday.  Changes made at the tournament or after noon on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 will be assessed a $20 nuisance fee.  
 
Fees for the tournament are $6 per slot covered and an additional $12 per uncovered slot.  One judge covers six slots.  We request that you bring ample judges—our uncovered slot fee will be used to compensate the strong pool of alumni who are hired to adjudicate the tournament.  
 
A $4 fee per student per day will be included in your entry fee as food options around the campus are limited. We will be providing Big Dally’s Deli sandwiches and pizza for lunch.
 
We look forward to seeing you at the swing.  If you have any questions email Dr. Austin McDonald cmcdonald@hastings.edu or email Aaron Blackman at blackmana2@unk.edu
Sincerely,
 
 
 
Austin & Aaron
 
 
 
 
 BroncoLope Tournament Schedules   
 
Awards & Tournament Rules
Students may enter three events in each flight.  Any student entered in four events or more is eligible for individual sweeps. Students will be advanced to finals based on cumulative rank and rate.  We reserve the right to advance fewer than six contestants if an event is small.  Contestants who receive a first place rank from two of three final round judges will be recognized as tournament champion.  Ties in final rounds will be broken by judges’ preference followed by cumulative rating.  Ties for Individual Sweepstakes will be broken by comparative ranks in final rounds followed by the number of final rounds, followed by number of first-place ballots, second-place ballots, etc. in final rounds.  Ties for school sweepstakes will be broken by number of finals for each team followed by comparative ranks.  
Team points will be awarded according to student’s placement in final rounds (10 points for 1st place, 8 points for 2nd place, 6 points for 3rd place, 4 points for 4th place, 2 points for 5th place, and 1 point for 6th place, ½ point for 7th-semi-finalists). All first year students from Hastings College will be allowed to compete both days of the tournament.
 
Events
All events entered in the tournament must meet the requirements of the AFA national tournament.  The rules for Dramatic Interpretation and Program Oral Interpretation are consistent with those suggested by the AFA-NIET.
