The first elimination round in all debate events (LD, CX, PF) is at 8 am. All judges are expected to be present.
All debaters/teams with winning records advanced to elimination rounds. In some cases, we broke to a partial bracket, with the highest seeds receiving a BYE into the next round of the bracket. So in a break of 11, the top 5 will receive Byes, and seeds 6-11 will compete for the remaining three Quarterfinalist slots.
