Bridgewater Raritan Tournament

Location of event:  Bridgewater Raritan High School - 600 Garretson Road, Bridgewater NJ 08807

 

Dear fellow Forensic Moderators and Coaches:
 
 
The Bridgewater Raritan High School Forensics Team cordially invites you to the Bridgewater Raritan Tournament on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the BRIDGEWATER-RARITAN HIGH SCHOOL.  
 
March is right around the corner so we are hoping you can make arrangements to attend our event. There will be good competition as well as good food and a great overall tournament experience.
We are offering all ten NJFL speech events including Humorous Interpretation, Dramatic Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, Prose Reading, Poetry Reading, Original Oratory, Extemporaneous Speaking, Impromptu, Improvisational Acting and Declamation*(OPEN TO 9TH &10TH GRADERS ONLY). 
 
Varsity and novice Public Forum Debate and Varsity and Novice Lincoln-Douglas Debate will also be offered, along with Student Congress (Novice LD and PF is open to 9th or 10th graders in their first year of debate). 
 
Students may double enter in any of the speech events, but may not double enter if competing in student congress or debate (LD or PF).  There will be three preliminary rounds and a final round in all speech events, as well as two sessions of Congress.  There will be four rounds of both debate categories and no finals.  Awards will be presented to the top six competitors in each event and the top three schools.  There may be awards for the highest ranking novice in each category as well. 
 
We ask that you register your novice speech competitors separately from your varsity on Speechwire.

Congress:   ****Please submit all Congress bills to gmcknight@brrsd.k12.nj.us no later than Friday, February 23, 2018.  We would like to add the bills to SpeechWire by Saturday,February 24th.  
 
Judges: Team will need to abide by the standard procedure of supplying:  1) One judge per five speech contestants 2) One judge for every 3 PF debate teams 3) One judge for every 3 LD debaters or fraction thereof is required.   
 PF and LD judges will have their own separate pools; however, we will use Speech judges for PF rounds as needed.  If you drop contestants on the day of the tournament, judges still must be provided for those dropped slots. If you have no choice and have to drop a judge... will result in a $125.00 hired judge penalty fee.   It is very likely that a very limited number of hired judges will be available.  Please make every effort to bring your own judges and stress to all of them that they must remain for the entire tournament.  All judges must be available to judge the final round of any event.  
 
Hired judges may be commissioned for $90.00 per judge on a first come, first serve basis.
