Dear Subsection 29A Coaches, 
 
The Subsection 29A contest will be held at Blackduck High School, 156 First St. NE, in Blackduck on Monday, March 25, 2019.
 
Registration will be done on Speechwire. To help us plan for the contest, please enter a team roster now. We realize that categories and your entrants may change, but entering what you know now will really help us in planning for judges and scheduling. Also, please enter your coaches under the judges tab, but leave them UNSPECIFIED so that they're not scheduled into JUDGING. This will help in assigning timer and other duties for the contest. 
 
You must finalize your registration by Monday, March 17th at 4:00 p.m. Please seed your speakers in each category with 1 being your best and 4 your least. This will help us plan for competitions in multiple sections. If there are any questions about these instructions, please email me or call my cell phone: (218) 368-4876. Please identify yourself if you text, or leave a voicemail with identification if you call so I am clear about who I'm talking with. 
 
Upon arrival at the Subsection contest, please furnish the following items:
1) A copy of each Original Oratory
2) A copy of each Creative Expression
3) A copy of each Informative Speech, and
4) Title, author, source, and copy of manuscript for each Great Speech
5) A copy of your completed Community Standards form.
 
Please bring a check for $15.00 per competitor (duos are TWO). Make the check payable to Region 8A. 
Please bring a reliable method of timing, as some of you will be asked to time rounds, and/or provide a time for rounds.
 
You need to arrive at Blackduck High School between 12:00-Noon and 12:45 p.m. Please drop students off in the front of the building, door #3. Busses may park in the south parking lot or on the street. Bus drivers are welcome in the Coaches Lounge.  Students may go directly to the commons which will be in the multipurpose room. Schedules should be available soon upon arrival. 
 
There are four time lines (subject to change if final numbers call for fewer categories with finals):
Flight 1 = Round 1: 1:30 Draw / 2:00 p.m. Speak
Flight 2 = Round 2: 3:00 Draw / 3:30 p.m. Speak
Flight 3 = Finals 1/Round 3: Draw 4:30 / 5:00 Speak
Flight 4 = Finals/Round 3: 6:30 p.m.
 
Awards: 8:00 p.m. Based on registration, this timeline may change. Not all categories will present at the same time in all rounds.
 
There will be a concession stand available for students.
 
A meal and snacks will be served in the Coaches and Judges Lounge. 
 
Please read the most recent version of MSHSL Rules and Policies Handbook, available on www.mshsl.org. There have been significant changes over the years. Also check out the FAQ page also listed on the high school league website.
 
Thank you and we will see you soon!
 
Sincerely,
Jennifer Parker, Contest Manager and Tournament Host
Kari Slindee and Samantha Schueller, Tournament Hosts
