Maverick Invitational

Dear Coaches, Competitors, and Judges,
Welcome to the Maverick Invitational. We are excited to host you on Saturday, January 25th, 2020.
Events: We are pleased to offer outstanding competition in Congressional Debate, Original Oratory, Mixed Extemporaneous, Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, Program Oral Interpretation, and Informative. We are also hosting a World Schools Debate division, a great chance for those debaters who will be attending the FFL Qualifier in February and the NSDA Qualifier in March to get some practice. We will also offer Public Forum debate (starting with a 2 team cap for each school to ensure space).
Rounds: There will be 4 rounds of competition and Finals in Speech events. Congress will have 3 preliminary sessions and a Final Session. WSD will be a round robin of 5 rounds if there are only 6 entries, if there are more, we will run 4 prelims and Finals. Public Forum will be 5 rounds.
Judges: In order to run a smooth and efficient tournament, we will need you to provide 1 judge for every 5 entries in Speech/Congress and 1 judge for every 2 entries in WSD or PF. There is a $100 charge for missing judges. Judges may be used across pools to facilitate the timely advancement of rounds.
Entry fee: Entry fees will be $25.00 per competitor.
Deadlines: Entries will be accepted through Tuesday January 21st at 12:00pm. After the entry deadline, all drops and changes will need to be emailed to speechanddebate@mccarthyhigh.org.

Drops the day of or during the tournament will forfeit the entry fee plus a $25.00 penalty.
