Hello MAFL Friends!

Our first MAFL tournaments of the 2018-19 season will kick off in Minnesota! Both MAFL #1 and MAFL #2 will be hosted on the University of Minnesota campus on Saturday, September 29, and Sunday, September 30, 2018. Many thanks in advance to David Cram Helwich, Bill Heinze, and their team for their hospitality. 

The Mid-America Forensic League is committed to inclusiveness and welcomes students and coaches from all identities and social roles. In light of ongoing harassment and discrimination, MAFL stands in solidarity with and will continue to offer a safe, educational space for our most vulnerable members.

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, September 25 by 5:00 pm CDT. After this point, no new entries will be accepted, however, changes and drops may be made on the SpeechWire website until Wednesday, September 26 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, September 26 at 12:00 pm. After this point there will be a $10 charge for each dropped slot.*

Please do not hesitate to contact me (lisaroth@uwm.edu or 309.264.0933) if you have any questions about MAFL tournaments or using SpeechWire. Your MAFL Executive Committee is looking forward to a fantastic year.
