The Tri-County Forensics League
Fall Novice IE Tournament
October 29, 2016
Where: Taft HS
5461 Winnetka Avenue
From the 405 South take the 101 West to Winnetka Ave. Take Winnetka south ( left) one block to Ventura Blvd. Cross Ventura. The school will be on your immediate right. Turn into the parking lot ( the first driveway) and park.
Novice Competitor: Students that are competing for the first year in any Individual Events while in high school. If they have competed in any of the 13 events listed below in previous years while in high school, they are no longer a novice in IE's.
A Events: Extemp, OA, Expos, DI, OI, Storytelling, SPAR
B Events: Impromptu, OO, OPP, HI, TI, Duo
Except for students doing Extemp, students MAY double enter in either pattern, but their total IE entry is limited to 3 events. This means that a student doing Extemp may not double enter in Pattern A but may double enter in Pattern B. (Not a good idea for novices to do three events because they aren't familiar with the workings of a tournament; use caution if a student wants to triple enter.)

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DON'T SEE YOUR SCHOOL LISTED ON THE REGISTRATION PAGE, YOU'RE NOT ENTERED.Because of the differences that exist in human perception, a subjective quality is present in the scoring of Speech and Debate rounds. Even with rules and evaluation criteria for guidance, judges will not evaluate the same performance in an identical manner. While we do everything possible to maintain consistency in scoring, winning results are not guaranteed.
