Dear Debate Community,

You are invited to participate in the 71st Annual Mountain Debate Tournament, November 19-22, 2010, hosted by Appalachian State University in Winston-Salem, NC.

Though we are hosting the tournament in a different city, our goal is to provide the same hospitality that you all have come to expect from our squad. A few quick notes:

-Because squads will inevitably have teams at the Shirley and our tournament, we will try to hold our schedule as close to theirs as possible. Thus, decision times will be 2 hours & 30 minutes and 2 hours & 45 minutes during elims.

-Entries will be open to teams in all divisions (open, jv, and novice). Therefore, if you have a team that doesn’t meet the Shirley’s eligibility, they are welcome to debate in our tournament.

-Rounds will be held at North Forsyth High School, 5705 Shattalon Dr, Winston Salem, NC 27105-1397, which is 3 miles (less than 10 minute drive) from Wake. 

Topic:
The 2010-2011 CEDA resolution

Time limits:
9-3-6

Entries:
Enter at http://www.debateresults.com and finalize judging/teams by midnight November 10.

Fees:
Tournament fees are $50.00 per person (debaters, coaches, judges, scouts).

Judging:
Each school must provide 4 rounds of prelim judging. Judges must vote for one and only one team in each debate and must assign speaker points and ranks in prelim rounds. Again, decision times will be 2 hours & 30 minutes and 2 hours & 45 minutes during elims. Judges should post their judge philosophy at debateresults.com, and address any conflicts prior to the tournament. Judges are also obligated through the first elimination round or one round beyond the elimination of their school, whichever is later.

Speaker Points:
For the sake of uniformity and the judges that may have to be at two tournaments, we will use the 100 point scale. There will be a graph showing distributions to make this as easy as possible.

Caselist:
Schools should use the wiki and cooperate with any scouting requests. The wiki can be found at
http://opencaselist.wikispaces.com/. For the sake of better debating, teams should submit their most recent affirmative (plans, advantages, add-ons) and negative arguments (cps, theory, da’s, k’s, case negs) by the Tuesday before the tournament.

Tabulation:
Will be run by Dr. Mike Davis, who will have discretion over any complications. The size of elimination rounds will depend on the participant pool.

Tournament Hotel:
The Sundance, 3050 University Parkway, Winston-Salem, NC 27105 (336-723-2911) www.staysundance.com Group code for online entry: WFUSD Flat rate: 119.99 per room per night plus taxes and fees. Includes wireless internet (they have increased their capacity), parking, and continental breakfast daily. All elims, including the Shirley, will be held here. Special needs or problems re hotel? Sales contact there is Sheila Small, shefaysmall@yahoo.com

Rental Vans:
For vans of all sizes, ask for the Wake Forest Debate rate at Triangle, http://www.trianglerentacar.com/

Hospitality:
Coffee in the mornings. Reception Friday night. Lunch & dinner on Saturday and Sunday. There is also a party for survivors (I will respect trademark) on Monday night after the start of the final round.

Quick update to the Sunday schedule.  In order to have enough space at the Sundance for both tournaments and allow teams to watch the elimination rounds of the Shirley, we will be having TWO elimination rounds Sunday night. At first glance I know this looks like an inconvenience, but our goal will be to get everyone out before 10pm so that they can get some sleep and still enjoy some of the best debating of Fall semester. The adjusted Sunday schedule is as follows:

Sunday, November 21, 2010

6:30 am – round 5 pairings released online and at North Forsyth

8 am – round 5 start

10:30 – round 5 decision deadline

10:45 – round 6 pairings

11:00 – lunch served

11:45 – Round 6 start

2:15 pm – round 6 decision deadline

2:30 – elimination round pairings

3:15 – elimination rounds start

5:45 – elimination rounds deadline

5:45 – dinner served and awards

7:00 - elimination rounds resume

9:45 - elimination rounds deadline


Thank you and I can't wait to see you all in Winston-Salem

Entries will close tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5pm. If you have any changes after that time, email Mike Davis at davismk13@gmail.com. I know that some of you still need to fill your judge commitments, so try to get that finalized as soon as possible. If you have to split a commitment at Wake, don't hesitate to contact one of us.
