Welcome Coaches! 
It's time for AST #6 on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019 at Flanagan High School (thanks Ellis Fraser and Flanagan Students/Parents)! 
Please follow the instructions on this page to register your entries. Remember, each school may only initially enter FIVE students in all events except Congress, in which you can enter TEN. 
Registration for NEW ENTRIES will close on Monday, February 11th at 5pm. At that time as many students will be released from the waitlist as space allows. Changes (drops or name changes) can be made until 12pm on Wednesday, February 13th. Any hidden drops will result in your school being fined $25 per drop. You will be able to make your own changes until 12pm on that Wednesday. Any changes after that, please text Megan West: 940.206.3806 or Justin Weaver: 954.790.8160 the school name, student who is dropping, and her/his event. 
All competitors should arrive between 2:00-2:30. NOBODY can arrive before 1:30!  Entrance is on the west side of the school for cars and buses. Do not enter from Taft Street. From I-75 you will exit on Pines going East.  Turn left on 129 Avenue and turn right just past the middle school to stay on 129 Avenue.  Turn right into the parking lot at the second entrance. From Pines Blvd you will go West past Flamingo and turn right on 129 Ave.  Take first right just past the middle school to stay on 129 Avenue.  Turn right into the parking lot at the second entrance.
Safety & Security:
  • All buses and cars will enter from the west side gate ONLY. This is on 129th Avenue and it is the gate closest to Taft Street. It takes you into the drivers education lot. Any one who is staying will park there as well. Entry will be permitted form 2-2:30 and then again at 3 once school has dismissed.
  • All competitors will go to the cafeteria and all judges will go to the media center. NOBODY associated with the debate tournament is permitted anywhere else on Flanagan's campus until Round 1 starts!
  • All competitors, judges, and coaches MUST visibly wear identifying lanyards and/or badges provided. Check you email for distribution information. Anyone not wearing their lanyard and/or badge will be asked to leave the campus.
  • No competitors may wander around the school. They must either be in rounds or in the cafeteria.
  • Current BCPS Security Policy reiterates the importance of consistent supervision of students by their coach/chaperone. All coaches MUST wait until all of their students have left campus via approved transportation before they can leave Flanagan.
For PF, the FEBRUARY topic will be used - Resolved: The United States should end its arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
For LD, the JANUARY/FEBRUARY topic will be used - Resolved: The United States ought not provide military aid to authoritarian regimes. Note: we are NO LONGER using the Novice LD (civil disobedience) topic.
For Policy Debate, the 2018-19 topic will be used - Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially reduce its restrictions on legal immigration to the United States. In addition, at the ASTs all teams MUST use the Novice Policy Packet. Instructions for accessing the packet were emailed directly to all coaches.
Extemp topic areas will be "US Politics" and "Authoritarian Regimes", and Impromptu topic areas will be "Love" and "Political Cartoons".
Congress legislation for the spring semester was emailed to all coaches. It is also accessible electronically here under the "Files for Download" section. The spring legislation packet has designations for which bills will be debated in which months, with 4 bills per month. Per usual, chambers might not debate all 4 bills if time does not allow. 
More information may be sent out as the tournament approaches. Please let your mentor know if you have any questions about the process.
*REMINDER FOR PRIVATE AND CHARTER SCHOOLS: Please remember to email Megan with how many tournaments you will be attending this year so that an invoice can be generated for you.
