Hello everybody and welcome to the July beginners tournament! I'm really hoping this tournament will go allot better then last months beginner tournament. (Allot of people had dropped out)

In this tournament, there will be a maximum of 8 competitors. I will also ask 4 people who have time to be sign up as a replacement incase a competitor drops out.

Requirements:


This is a beginners tournament. You are eligible if you have under 10 debates, or have a minimum ELO of 2,500. "Anyone who has done more than 25 debates AND has been on the site longer than 6 months is not a beginner. "(Credit to bsh1)

Each competitors will have 7 days in between rounds to come up with a new topic. If you fail to do so, I will assign you a topic. Here is a website with some ideas for your debate (http://idebate.org...) (http://www.speechanddebate.org...)

Mentors

There will be a total of 4 members. I have already asked 4 experienced, well rounded members to help mentor. I'm just waiting for conformation from 3 of them. Each mentor will be assigned 2 competitors.

If you are having any issues with you mentor, please PM me and tell me why you should be appointed a new one. I will appoint a new mentor if needed.

Yeah, I meant to say if your ELO is over 2,500 you can't participate. Sorry about that.

You should keep the latter rules, but not the former.

Though I don't even like the time thing. My rules would be: under 25 debates AND under 3,000 Elo qualify. Time is such an arbitrary measure.
