Bishop Noll Speech is proud to invite you to our November Tournament! We are stoked. 
 
The Bishop Noll Speech Tournament will be held on Saturday, November 17, 2018.  Preliminary registration is due on Monday, November 12, by 5:00 P.M, CST.  Registration will be from 7:00-7:20 am CST outside the Media Center.  Extemp draw will start at 7:45 am CST and rounds will begin at 8:00 am CST. Extemp round 1 will start at 8:15 am CST. When entering the building, please use the "A" door (it's the entrance with the blue awning). Teams will camp out in the cafeteria. 
 
You may bring up to 4 entries per event.  We will run four straight rounds. Teams are capped at 40 entries. We will have all 14 IHSFA events. 
 
Please bring one qualified judge, willing to write informative critiques, for every five entries or fraction thereof.  All judges are obligated to stay until all fourth rounds start.
 
Contestants may double, no tripling. No doubling will be allowed in Discussion.   Both duo partners (OP Duos included) may double. If you are doubling in two partner events, you must double only with the same partner for both events.  Students double at their own risk. 
 
Radio information will be posted by November 13, 2018. Bishop Noll does not have an official radio room, or equipment. The way we do radio is we have the speaker sit in the room with the judge, but the speaker's back is to the judge. We will do a prepared newscast and an "on the spot" only. 
 
Extemp topics will be taken from current events.  Extempers will draw for Rounds 1 & 3 only.  Thirty minutes prep time.  Round 2 will be round 1 prepped speech. Round 4 will be round 3 prepped speech. All extempers are to report to the prep room by 7:45 am CST. 
 
Discussion Topics will be posted November 13. 
 
Impromptu will be flex prep - seven minutes. 
 
Ribbons will be given to the top six individuals in all events.  Sweepstakes trophies will be awarded to the top five schools.  Bishop Noll will not be eligible for a sweepstakes trophy. 
 
Lunch will be served in the Cafeteria.  Please encourage your team to purchase lunch and snacks. It's how we are able to host a tournament! 
 
We hope to start awards by 2 pm CST. 
 
We look forward to seeing you on November 17, 2018.
 
Students are asked to not enter a competition room until the judge is present. 
 
Most competition rooms will be on the third floor of the building. If you are bringing a student or judge who needs access to our elevator, please send us an e-mail so we can arrange to have a key for the speaker or judge. 
 
There is an event after our tournament in the cafeteria on the 17. While our team will stay and clean, the more you can be aware of your space in the cafeteria in terms of trash and food would be appreciated!!! 
 
Please make sure to e-mail any drops to kburgun@bishopnoll.org by 7:00 am CST the morning of the tournament. We prefer e-mail.   There will not be any drops to pick up on the day of the tournament.
 
 
Sincerely,
