Welcome to the Official Autumn Regular Tournament!

INTRO

This tournament will be the first tournament held under the new trimonthly system, and so will last from August to October. Tejretics and I will be co-hosting this, and I hope that it's fun for everyone.

This tournament will be very straightforward. This tournament will have 6-12 debaters, and pairings will be completely randomized inside a bracket. Their will not be power-pairing. All debaters will be given 3 days to select a topic and begin their debate. If they fail to decide on a topic, a topic from the National Forensic League (aka National Speech and Debate Association) LD and PF databases will be selected and assigned to them. Sides will also be assigned. If a topic is assigned due to an expiration of the 3-day discussion period, debaters will be given an extra 24 hours to start their debates. Further rules about formatting may be introduced later, but largely these will be left up to the debaters.

If you're interested, please sign-up below. Good luck!

Larz's tournament won't be done until September, so why not.
I would prefer not to.

It's a way for noobsnipers to improve their skill. You're free to keep tabs on the tourney or join yourself.

Because I'm exhausted and that's the account name I use on virtually every other site. Do change it in the final list.
