>     
>  IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS FOR TOC 2008
> 
>  1. Schools that do not comply with deadlines will be assessed a nuisance fee
> of $50 and will not have the option of participating in judge preferences or
> strikes! The deadline for both fully qualified entries and ?at-large?
> applications in both divisions is March 15, 2008. The deadline for the payment
> of all fees is April 1, 2008. ?At-large? applicants will not be notified and
> fully qualified teams will not be entered into the tournament until all fees
> are paid.
>  
>  2.  The TOC Tournament Director has NO hired judges available.  SCHOOLS MUST
> SUPPLY THEIR OWN JUDGES.  If the person supplied is not a full time teacher of
> a school, the applicant may be required to submit  the qualifications of the
> designated judge to the Tournament Director. 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.  
>   
>  3.  In both policy and LD, tournaments designated as a quarter-final or
> octa-final qualifier must have at least six preliminary rounds; otherwise, the
> bid drops to the semi-finals level.
>  
>  4.  If a school has not submitted judging philosophies for all of its judges
> by 7 days before the TOC, that school will not be offered a preference and
> strike sheet for the TOC and will be assessed a nuisance fee of $50.
>  
>  6.  A team or an LD debater 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, if two people or
> 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, and two people or 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
> eligible for a ghost bid.
>  
>  7.  In policy debate, a team must have two qualifiers as a team to qualify
> for the TOC.  If a team does not have two quals AS A TEAM, then they may
> submit for an at-large bid. Debaters from the same school who have two or more
> bids but have not debated together may also submit for an ?at-large? bid.
>  
>  8. Tournament Directors must submit complete result sheets no more than
> thirty days after the tournament is held. For tournaments held after March
> 1st, the results must be certified by March 10th. This includes the debaters
> full names, their schools, and state
