Dear Forensics Colleagues:

The Lewis & Clark College Pioneers, Oregon Beta of PKD, cordially invite you and your squad to participate in the Steve Hunt Classic, Friday, October 7th through Sunday, October 9th, 2011. We will be an officially sanctioned NPDA tournament and the first Northwest Forensics Conference Designated Tournament for 2011-12.

Our tournament will offer six preliminary rounds of NPDA/NPTE parliamentary debate in three divisions; five rounds of British parliamentary debate (four team format) in one division; and three rounds of twelve individual events following modified AFA NIET rules.

We will provide coffee, tea, juice, and light fare for breakfast all three days of the tournament (now including Sunday). Food service will be open on Friday and Saturday for purchase of lunch at the Trail Room.

We hope for some beautiful weather but you should be prepared for possible liquid sunshine, as October is when the Northwest rains really start falling. We look forward to welcoming you and your competitors on campus.

Entries are due by Monday Oct. 3rd at 11:59 PM through web registration at forensicstournament.net.

Sincerely,
Brad Krupicka and the Pioneers
Office 503-768-7666. Email: krupicka@lclark.edu.




Pioneer Invitation Rules of Competition

Debate
NPDA Debate

There will be three divisions of parliamentary debate: novice, junior, and senior. Time limits will be 7-8-8-8-4-5. We will use NPDA division standards.
*Novice—Little or no experience (no high school debate). First year of college
experience. Must go on to junior after breaking to elims three times.
*Junior–-First or second year college experience. Not more than three breaks to
elimination rounds in junior division
*Open/Senior—All the rest.

Divisions may be collapsed based upon entries and NFC guidelines.

Five topic areas will be announced on or before September 23. Topic areas will be posted at www.net-benefits.net, www.forensicstournament.net (on the invite), and will be emailed to the NFC email list. Topics will be centrally announced. Teams will have 20 minutes of prep time from the time the topic is announced until the PMC MUST start.

We will break brackets. Breaks on W-L, then total speaker points dropping high and low, then total speaker points, then quality of opposition (win-loss records of opposing teams).

We will have appropriate elimination rounds trying to ensure all teams with a 4-2 or better record breaking even if this means holding partial elimination rounds.

We will not have judge preference but we will allow strikes (probably l0 per team which is an additional reason to enter early).

British Parliamentary Debate
15 minutes of prep time. 7 minute speech times. Internet research is allowed in prep. Coaching during prep time is prohibited.

There will be 2 judges per round. Although we encourage consensus judging, we are on a schedule. If agreement cannot be reached after 15 minutes of deliberation, then a split decision will be rendered. The Tournament Director reserves the right to expedite decisions to keep the tournament on time.

Each team will be given the opportunity to debate in each of the four positions.

Teams should know that they may face other teams from their same school in any round.

Elimination rounds determined by entries. Consistent with community norms in this event, the break will be approx. 10-15% of the field.

If a school enters a number of teams in the tournament such that their judging commitment becomes virtually non-existent (e.g., nearly every round has teams from one school) we ask that these schools be flexible in providing assistance to other debate formats.

Individual Events

Divisions
*Novice—is for beginners. Novice speakers should be in their first year of competition in
public speaking or interpretation. They should not have won three or more awards in college in public speaking or interpretation.
*Junior—is for students with high school or collegiate experience. Junior speakers
should not have won more than eight speaking or interpretation awards in college competition. Probably should go on to senior after winning three or more junior awards in a category separating interp events from speaking events.
*Open/Senior—is for all other students. Speakers with more than 8 awards in collegiate
speaking (ADS, extemp, impromptu, persuasion, informative, or comm. Criticism) must enter open in speaking events. Interpreters with more than 8 awards in college in interpretation (duo, drama, prose, poetry, POI) must enter open division in interpretation events.

Students are required to have manuscripts in all prepared events and may be required to show these to tournament administration.

Conflict patterns
Pattern A: Extemp (N, J, S), Persuasion (N, J. S), Drama (N, S), POI (S), ADS (S), Poetry (S).

Pattern B: Impromptu (N, J. S), Informative (N, J. S), CA (S), Duo (S), Prose (N, J, S), Forensics Criticism (S).

Rules for multiple entries: Novices may enter only TWO events per pattern. Junior and Senior may enter SIX events total, no more than three in one pattern.

Extemp cannot be triple entered in that pattern.

If a student competing in DUO is triple entered in Pattern B then they must start the Round with DUO.

Students are categorized by the lowest division in which they enter in a pattern.

Students are responsible for signing in/informing judges of conflicts and getting back and forth to conflicts!!

We will hold NO FINALS in events with fewer than 10 entries.




Pattern A Events Standard NIET rules
.
Pattern B Events Standard NIET rules with the following exceptions:
*Impromptu- Single topic/quotation for each room. Competitors may not listen to speakers prior to speaking themselves.
*Duo- STUDENTS MAY BE ENTERED IN ONLY ONE DUO

***FORENSICS CRITICISM- Analyze and evaluate a problem/s with a current forensics event (debate or individual event) and advocate for a solution/s. You may use a manuscript or notes 8-l0 minutes. NOT AN NIET EVENT.

Extemp prep is in the Stamm Dining Room in Templeton Student Center.

Hey Brad,

Quick question on the topic areas.

1. The Sept 23 release on topic areas is later than usual (and most other topic area tournaments) is there a reason for that? Any chance we'll get them sooner?

2. I know Prof. Hunt was a fan of the two word topic area (presidential elections, civil rights, agricultural subsidies) in the past. If the topic areas are coming out later than usual, will they be closer to NPTE guidelines for topic areas (direction/actor) to aid in generalized research?

Thanks sir.

Rob

Hi Hi!

1) My hope is that I will have the topic areas out by Friday 9/16. However, don't hold me to that the only promise I make is that they will be out by the 22nd.

2) There will be general topic areas and subtopics from which resolutions will be modeled after closer to NPTE topic areas but they may or may not have actor or direction.

Quick question about strikes:

Will the strike sheet include all judges (Both Parli and Worlds) or will there be two separate strike sheets (one with the Parli judges and one with the Worlds judges)?

We'll divy up the pool for BP and Parli. If you're school is only doing one activity then you will only have to deal with the one strike form for the Parli judging pool, for example.
