Following is the definitive list of the qualifying tournaments for the 2007
TOC.  No tournaments will be added until after May of 2007.
 
 THE ROAD TO THE THIRTY-SIXTH KENTUCKY TOC
 
 DATES: SATURDAY, SUNDAY, MONDAY
 MAY 5, 6 AND 7, 2007
    
 IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS FOR TOC 2007

1. In Public Forum we are switching from a round robin to a qualifying
tournament. Unless otherwise noted, a team must have two bids to be fully
qualified for the TOC. A team that has only one bid is eligible to apply for
an ?at-large? bid.

2.  In Congress, unless otherwise noted, a debater must have two bids to be
fully qualified for the TOC. A debater that has only one bid is eligible to
apply for an ?at-large? bid.

3.  The TOC, Tournament Director  will no longer have any hired judges
available.  SCHOOLS MUST SUPPLY THEIR OWN JUDGES. While no hired judges will
be available, the TOC Director will refer people who wish to judge to those
who desire to hire judges.  All such arrangements will be between the
designated school and the person wishing to be hired.
 
4.  A public forum team must win at least one elimination round to be
eligible for a "ghost bid."  For example, if a tournament breaks at the
double-octos level and is a TOC qualifier at the octos level, and if teams
from
the same school meet in the octos round, a ghost bid would be awarded.  If a
tournament breaks at the octos level and is a TOC qualifier at the quarters
level, if two teams from the same school meet in the quarters, a
ghost bid would be awarded. On the other hand, if a tournament breaks to the
octafinals and  people from the same school meet in the octos, a ghost bid
would not be awarded.  In this case, since there was no double octos, the
people meeting would not have won an out round and would not be eligible for
a
ghost bid. 
 
5. Tournament Directors must submit complete result sheets on or before
March 1st, 2007. This includes the debaters full names, their schools, and
states. 

6. Penalties will be assessed for teams or debaters that do not meet entry
deadlines!
