Second round submission question
« on: February 25, 2014, 01:44:55 PM »
Could one of the NDT folks let me know how to formally submit second round bids and, in particular, how to pay for them? My memory's a bit rusty on both scores.

Much appreciated

2) Have to have participated in the district process

3) Enter the NDT on tabroom

4) Pay $100 at-large bid fee at http://nationaldebatetournament.org/at-large-bids/ by hitting the pay now button

5) Meet the following criteria from NDT Standing Rules II.C.2.c:

***c. Second Round At-Large process.

I thought the fee was $50.00?  That's what we paid last year.  When was that changed?

It changed to $100 for first and second rounds this year. Someone on the committee would know more as to why that change occurred.

Board of Trustees voted in November to raise the fee to $100.
