Elim Sweeps Points

Amends Bylaw VI. Section 4. Adds subsection E.

If a division is eligible to hold a partial elimination round, but the tournament is unable to hold the round (i.e., schedule), three points shall be awarded to all of the higher seeds as if the debate did occur.

JUSTIFICATION: Tournament hosts are pressured to hold rounds when it is not in their best interest. This amendment would provide the benefit of the points without the burden to host the round when it is otherwise inconvenient.
