Greetings Indiana Debate Coaches! Fishers High School would like to invite you to participate in the Fishers Debate-o-Rama, to be held on Saturday, November 2nd. We will offer both Novice and Varsity competition in all IHSFA debate events: Congress, Lincoln Douglas, Policy, Public Forum, and World Schools Debate. Here are the key details:
We will use the November NSDA topics for all events. 
Round topics for World Schools Debate will be published closer to the tournament. 
Congress should prepare for IHSFA Bills 1, 3, 5, and 7. 
For the purposes of this tournament, Novices are defined as students with no prior High School debating experience. Students who have previously competed in HS level speech events but never any debate events are novices. Students who have previously competed in any debate event, including WSD and Congress, are varsity. There will be no "novice" designation for World Schools Debate. 
Online registration for this tournament will close at 3 PM Eastern Time on Monday, October 28th. 
Teams may check in starting at 7 AM the morning of the tournament. There will be a meeting for judges and competitors at 8 AM, postings at 8:15 AM, and Round 1 will start at 8:30 AM. 
We will run 4 rounds of debate for all events, 2 sessions of Congress. Rounds 3 and 4 of debate events will be power matched.
WSD Rounds 1 and 4 will be impromptu. Rounds 2 and 4 will be prepared motions which will be published in October. 
We are running this open debate tournament concurrently with a small speech invitational. Placings and awards for these tournaments will be separated. 
Please bring at least one judge for every four students or fraction thereof (Two policy teams = 1 judge, five LDers = 2 judges, etc…).  Expect your judges to be assigned to judge any category you enter.  I have created a few judge preference categories on SpeechWire.  Varsity students (200 or more NFL points) who are not competing may judge novice rounds.  
Please contact me at pkennedy@hse.k12.in.us if you have any questions. We are looking forward to a great competition!
