Hello Everyone,

Hope you are having a fantastic Spring semester! Please join us for MAFL #7 and MAFL #8, hosted on the University of Northern Iowa campus on Saturday, February 22nd and Sunday, February 23rd. Thanks in advance to Sadé Barfield and the UNI Forensics team for their hospitality.

The Mid-America Forensic League is committed to inclusiveness and welcomes students and coaches from all identities and social roles. In light of ongoing harassment and discrimination, MAFL stands in solidarity with and will continue to offer a safe, educational space for our most vulnerable members.

Reminders for MAFL 7 and 8:

  • MAFL 7 is a Novice Recognition tournament. When you register students for each event, please specify whether they are in the Novice or Open division. A Novice is a student in their first year of collegiate forensics competition.
  • MAFL 7 is our Spring Charity Tournament. In lieu of trophies, a donation will be made to a local charity of the host school's choosing.
  • We will have one round of nontraditional impromptu prompts at MAFL 7 (Round 2 will be questions) & 8 (Round 2 will be proverbs). Round 1 and the final round will be the traditional quotations. 
  • We will have our Spring Coaches' Meeting at noon during MAFL 7. During the meeting, the following information will be addressed:
    • Announcing the schedule for the 2019-2020 Season
    • Taking volunteers for impromptu prompts/extemp questions for MAFL 1 and 2
    • Electing a replacement for President Karen Morris to fulfill the last year of her 3 year term (2018-2021)*

*if you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to nominate someone or yourself please email nomination to Karen Morris (morriskr@uwec.edu) by February 21st

Entries: Each school may enter 6 students per event. Each student may enter up to 4 events. Because of the 1 hour and 15-minute time limit for each round, it is strongly recommended that students are only double-entered and not triple-entered in a pattern. It is the responsibility of the student to make it to their rounds on time. Judges cannot wait past the time allotted for the round. Students may not enter all 4 events in one pattern.

*Entries are due Tuesday, February 18th by 5:00 pm CST. After this point, no additional entries will be accepted, however, changes and drops can be made on SpeechWire until Wednesday, February 20th at 12:00 pm.*

Fees: Please remember that at the first MAFL you attend, you will be required to submit your yearly membership dues of $300.00. This payment entitles your school to attend all of the remaining 2019-20 MAFLs. A non-member school may attend 1 MAFL weekend per season without paying membership dues, but instead, pay $8 per entered slot and uncovered judge fees.

Beyond your one-time membership dues, the only fees you will pay at each tournament are for uncovered or dropped slots. Each full-time judge covers 6 slots, and uncovered slots are $10 each. If you bring more than 20 uncovered slots, the fee will be increased to $20 for each slot beyond 20. 

*All fees will be assessed on Wednesday, February 19th at 12:00 pm. After this point, there will be a $10 charge for each dropped slot.*

Please do not hesitate to contact me (lisaroth@uwm.edu or 309-264-0933) if you have any questions about MAFL tournaments or using Speechwire to register. Hoping to see many of you at UNI!
