Please make sure that ALL debaters and ALL debate judges START Round V at 8 am. Congress MUST start as close to 845 as possible, but the Congressional Debaters who are also in PF or LD need to debate and then be part of the agenda-setting process. We will be noting when debate rounds start, but I expect NO game playing (I won’t tolerate even the appearance of game-playing) with the start times.
ALL debate rounds must start at 8 am, and a 10-minute forfeit rule is in effect unless contact is made en route or there’s major civil disorder.
Please make this a positive experience for all, especially our valiant young people who are doing what they can.
We have NO spare rooms after 130 pm, which means we are limited severely in our flexibility.
