Dear Coaches, 
 
The Normal West Speech Team is pleased to invite you to our annual invitational on Saturday, November 10.  Important information is noted below.  
 
FORMAT AND SCHEDULE
Registration will begin at 8:00 and will be in the senior cafeteria, which is adjacent to the main cafeteria.  Each student will compete in two double-judged rounds.  We will hold finals for the top six qualifiers in the varsity final (we will include ties; however no final will exceed eight competitors which means we reserve the right to run either a semi-final or next-in final, if necessary) and a junior varsity final (sophomores and all first-year competitors). We will be allowing triple entries but ask that students not triple entered in three events in the same flight.  
 
EVENT INFORMATION
Extemp will have a 30 minute prep for each round in the IMC.
Radio should being a script ready to present with news no more than 24 hours old.
We will follow IHSA rules in all other events.
We will not be assigning penalties for time in the tab room.
 
ENTRIES
Each team is allowed to bring four entries per event.  We will try our best to accommodate requests to exceed the cap based on space in specific events.  Priority will be given to teams who reciprocate with us at their tournaments.
 
JUDGES
Each team is required to bring one judge for every 6 entries or fraction thereof.  Judge requirements will be determined by the entries as of Wednesday, 11/7 at 12:00 despite any drops that may occur later.
 
FEES
1-7 entries:      $ 75.00
8-14 entries:    $100.00
15-28 entries:  $150.00
29-42 entries:  $200.00
43-56 entries:  $250.00
 
Please bring your checks with you when you register made payable to Normal West Speech Team.
 
WE WILL BE UTLIZIING ONLINE RANK AND CRITIQUE SUBMISSION AT THIS TOURNAMENT.  IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE THIS, WE WILL NEED TO COLLECT JUDGE EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN YOU REGISTER THEM.  WE WILL ALSO NEED JUDGES TO HAVE SMART PHONES OR WIRELESS DEVICES TO BE ABLE TO SUBMIT RANKS ONLINE.  WE WILL HAVE PAPER CRITIQUES FOR THOSE JUDGES WHO PREFER TO USE THEM, BUT WE WILL BE ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO TRY THIS OUT.  BEN IS WORKING CLOSELY WITH US TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND IS LOOKING TO ADD A PREFERENCES SECTION FOR JUDGES SINCE ROUNDS WILL HAVE TO BE ASSIGNED TO SPECIFIC JUDGES AS OPPOSED TO HOW WE NORMALLY ASSIGN THEM AT WEST TO BE DECIDED BY COACHES.  ONCE THIS IS ENABLED, PLEASE FILL IT OUT THOROUGHLY.  
 
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at marvine@unit5.org or leave a voicemail at 309.336.6289.  you can also text me at 309.838.5481.
We hope you’ll be able to join us on the 10th!
