Dear Coaches, 
The Normal West Speech Team is pleased to invite you to our annual invitational on Saturday, November 9.  Important information is noted below.  
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.  
Extemp will have a 30 minute prep for each round.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Once again we are going to have judges submit ranks and comments online through Speechwire.  We felt like this worked very well last year and helped the tournament to run more efficiantly, so we are asking that coaches list all of their judges and theie emails when registering.  The one down side is that this requires us to make specific assignments to judges as opposed to making assignments to teams.  Ben added the ability  for judges to designate favored events and found that worked well when using the program to make assignments.  Additionally, we are asking that everyone who is judging be able to access their email and have a device on which to log into speechwire to submit their ranks.  Judges will have the option so complete critiques online or write them by hand, but we are requesting that all ranks be submitted online. we will have a few devices to loan if need be, and we will also have directions for accessing the open wifi at Normal West.
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!
