Pacific University is pleased to invite you to the annual Hap Hingston Forensics Invitational to be held on January 12-13, 2019. The tournament is named after A.C. “Hap” Hingston. Hap was a faculty member at Pacific University from 1942–1973 and continued serving on Pacific’s Board of Trustees until 1983. He also served as chairperson of the department of communication and the director of forensics for many years. We are proud to have our tournament named after Hap Hingston.

We have a few tournament announcements this year:

  • We have a different schedule than in the past. Please check it before making travel arrangements.
  • We will have Congress on Saturday, January 12. Please submit legislation by Friday, January 4.
  • LIELL will run on a separate, shortened pattern on Sunday, unless participating schools prefer otherwise.
  • Due to the proximity and competitive opportunities of Lewis and Clark’s tournament on January 19-20 we will not be offering CX debate. We will not offer Worlds or Big Questions debate. We are also placing debate entry caps on each form of debate.
  • Please note our registration and change deadlines on Tuesday, January 8 and Thursday, January 10.
  • We are delighted to announce that the Top Individual Events Sweepstakes winner will receive a scholarship should they choose to apply and enroll at Pacific University in the future.

Finally, while we use the OSAA Speech Handbook as a guide, we will not strictly adhere to tournament procedures that govern the OSAA State Championship. This means we will: a) allow exceptions for use of notes, b) utilize unique topic areas in impromptu, c) utilize speaker points to break ties in individual events, and d) maintain brackets in semifinal and finals debate (we will break brackets for quarters). We believe that we will meet Auto-Qual requirements based on the size of the tournament and usage of Oregon events.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in January.
