Dear Forensics Coach,

            Kaukauna High School is pleased to invite your team to the 12th annual Kaukauna Forensic Tournament on February 15th, 2020. We will again feature Starbucks coffee for coaches, judges and bus drivers along with Bagelicious bagels and a plethora of other foods to warm a judge's heart (and stomach).

            Since we want the tournament to run as smoothly and as successfully as possible, we will limit the size of the tournament to fit the space we have available at the high school. We know several of you run tournaments in multiple buildings, but we would prefer to have all our problems in one place. As a result, please be sure to register by the deadline so we can stay on top of the situation and keep it from getting bigger than we can handle.

            If you have questions, the best way to contact Keith is by email at vandenheuvelk@kaukauna.k12.wi.us (He knows it’s long - sorry. He blames his Dutch parents.) You can also call him at school (920)766-6113 x5407 or on his cell (920) 213-2149.

            All the necessary information is listed below. We hope you can come to the event. We look forward to making this a successful tournament.

DATE: Saturday, February 15, 2020

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: Thursday, February13, 2020.  Please register by using speechwire.com. If you are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with the program, email Keith.

ENTRIES: You may have as many entries as you wish. Varsity teams will be noted at registration.

        Double entries will be accepted. However, students in Extemp. or Radio announcing may NOT 

        double enter. If you have a student/students double entered, they will count as two entries. Count  

        the entries, not the students. After the deadline, entries will only be added if there is space


FEES:   Entry fees are $10 per individual event and $15 per each duo interp, group interp, and

              play acting entry. You will be responsible for all entry fees unless you drop or cancel at

              least 48 hours before the tournament begins. PLEASE MAKE CHECKS PAYABLE



CONFIRMATION: Speechwire will allow you to update and track your registration throughout the week. You are asked to call Keith on Saturday morning when you leave to confirm your entry and update us on any late adds/drops. This will give us time to adjust the schedule and get the first round started on time.

 PLEASE TEXT KEITH’S CELL 920-213-2149 any time after 5:30am. If you do not get a reply within 5 minutes, please try again. We will confirm all text messages that we receive. Please text even if you have no changes. We cannot run a schedule until we hear from all schools


REGISTRATION:   Registration will be in the commons as you arrive. The library, room E116, will

& HOSPITALITY    be the location of the hospitality area and judges’ lounge.


JUDGES:  You need to have one judge per five entries, or fraction thereof. I have a very

                    limited supply of judges available for hire at $120 per judge so please make every effort to

                    bring enough judges with you. Whether you have drops or not, you will be expected to                                         bring the number of judges that you indicate on your original registration form.


SCHEDULE:             Registration                              7:30 – 8:15am

                        Draw for radio and extemp.     8:15am

                        Round 1 for all events            8:45am

                        Round 2                                  10:00am

                        Round 3                                  11:15am

                        Awards                                    3:00pm


AWARDS: Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 small schools (5-11 entries) and the top 3

        medium schools (12-18 entries) based on qualitative results of actual students

        competing. The top 4 schools in the large school category (19 - 25 entries) will win    

        a trophy based on sweepstakes points. Individual trophies will be awarded to the top

        3 finishers in each category. All other finalists will receive medals.


RULES: WFCA rules will be followed. There will not be a judge’s meeting because this

    tournament is late enough in the season that, hopefully, everyone understands the rules.

    Please make sure that your judges are up to speed and comfortable operating this way.


FOOD: A concession stand will be open from 7:30am until after lunch. It will have snacks and more substantial food. We ask that all

              contestants eat at the school so power rounds are not delayed.
