Thank you for choosing the Forest Lake Speech Tournament - the R.C. Streater Classic! We are happy that you and your team have decided to attend. Our tournament will be offering competition in all 13 MSHSL events and Programmed Oral Interpretation (POI).

Entry Deadline: Wednesday, Feb. 12

Site Scheduling:  Please note that we will be site scheduling this tournament.  Please make every effort to update your entries by noon on Friday.  However, the drop window will be left open until Saturday morning, so coaches can make last minute drops on the way to the tournament. You will receive an up-to-date entry list on Saturday morning when you arrive.  Make any Drop/Adds right away so that we may schedule round 1 in a timely fashion.

E-balloting: This year we will be using e-balloting for the first time.  Please make sure that your judges email information is entered into the Speechwire system and ask that your judges have an internet accessible device.  We will have a few extra devices available for checkout if necessary. Paper ballots will be available for those that prefer to use paper ballots. More detailed directions and e-balloting set up help will be available the day of tournament for those judges new to the system.
