Please join us for the Blackduck Drakes Speech Challenge, Saturday, March 16th, at Blackduck High School.  This is a 7-12 Varsity tournament featuring all 13 MSHSL competitive events.  The entry fee is $6.00 per speaker.  Please provide judges at a 1:6 ratio.   Deadline to register your team is Tuesday, March 12th at 11:00 a.m., deadline for drops without charge is Thursday, March 14th at 11:00 a.m.  Drops after that will be charged, and you will be responsible for the correct number of judges.  Please bring your check for registrations on the morning of the tournament, and the number of judges agreed to in the judge to speaker ratio.

* NOTE: Make checks payable to "BHS Speech Booster," and NOT to the school or school district.  This is our tournament policy - but many schools do not note it in their check requests and it is important!!

On March 16th, registration will begin at 8:00 a.m.
Draws will begin at 9:00 with competition rounds at 9:30, 10:45, and 12:00, with finals beginning close to 2:00 p.m.  We will plan to present awards close to 3:30 p.m.

Concessions will be available to students and a light luncheon will be provided to coaches, judges, and bus drivers.

Awards will be presented to all speakers who show superior ability and to the top three scoring teams. 

Please ensure that your speakers are aware of the rules and etiquette of their categories and competition and that your judges are aware of MSHSL rules, expectations regarding keeping explicit ballots and writing critiques that provide speakers with appropriate feedback and suggestions.

Assistance from experienced head coaches will be welcome in the tab room and ballot drop.  We look forward to seeing you in Blackduck on February 4th!
