[eDebate] Could Tournament Directors announce intentions!
Wed Sep 28 10:52:47 CDT 2005
I'm going to respond to both of Jackie's posts. First, on this one:
1. Yes, teams who get the bye in the partial round get 3 CEDA points (just
as they get six NDT points).
2. I agree that tournaments should explain their policy on teams clearing
in the invite.
3. In the East region, we "talked" via email this summer and developed a
consensus on when the partial rounds should take place (trading off more
debate and more sweepstakes points on the one hand vs. making everyone hang
around for a small partial round and safety concerns that stem from
extending the tournament on the other hand). It's still the host's call,
but we have guidelines.
On the other post, contrary to popular misconception, there is nothing to
prevent tournaments from offering judge preference in all divisions. We've
done it at our tournament (there's a trick or two regarding entry if you use
the Bruschke page for preferences, and I'd be happy to help anyone using
preferences in all 3 divisions), and I think any tournament that offers
preferences in Open should offer them in other divisions as well.
