THE ROAD TO THE THIRTY-SEVENTH KENTUCKY TOC

  DATES: SATURDAY, SUNDAY, MONDAY

 MAY 3, 4, AND 5, 2008


 IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS FOR TOC 2008

1. In Public Forum, 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, 2008. 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!
