Dear Forensics Friends:
     The Southeast High School Forensics Program invites you to attend the HOLIDAY JOUST on Friday, December 15th, 2017.  Once again, we are a proud NIETOC National Qualifying tournament!  Last year, (before the snow, lol) we had enough entries to run Merit finals in almost all TOC events, and we hope to do that again this year.  We really enjoy running this tournament, and hope to make it a wonderful experience for everyone!  We like to offer great food, a competitive and timely run tournament, and great awards!  Please read over the invitation and call or e-mail  - or text, for that matter - if you have any questions. We will run 3 rounds and finals, with finals divided into CHAMP and HONORS finals, as well as MERIT finals for any TOC event that has met the numbers criteria for MERIT.
     Speech events are Open division, but we will be recognizing High Novice in each individual event (Not DUO or OID). Double entry is allowed in all events; triple entry allowed for all except Extempers and OID.  No quad entry.  There is a triathlon award for those who are triple entered.  We will once again limit entries to six per event to make sure we have room for all schools, but we will also have a waiting list to fill the building on a first come, first serve basis. In the event we do allow more than six per event, only the top six from any school in any given event will be scored. Our eventst this year are POI, HI, DI, POE, DUO, ENT, INF, PER, EXT, IMP, and OID.  
     Our day will once again start in the commons on the East side of the building, so please park near the tennis courts and come in the commons doors.  Please plan on arriving and parking anytime after 1:45.  Buses should park on the East side of the building, and for the shortest walk, teams should come in through the commons door, near the tennis courts.

*Added note - we will be running without speaker points on the ballot this year, instead breaking to finals based on 1) prelim round combined ranks, 2) opponent's strength, 3) head to head, 4) prelim reciprocals. 
Finals tiebreaking will be 1) rank in finals, 2) judge's pref in finals, 3) final round reciprocals, 4) prelim round ranks, 5) prelim round opponent's strength
In addition, we will also be implementing the following overtime rule:
Any speaker who is overtime cannot be ranked first.  (Beyond that it is up to the judge as to where they want to put a competitor.  There will be no ghost ranks)
