10/11/2022 Initial Welcome Message:

Welcome to the 15th Annual Eddy Shell Invitational.   Any pre-tournament updates will be added here.

Please note: for judges during preliminary rounds we will be offering the choice of eballots or paper ballots.  As you enter your judges, please be sure each has their preference set for eballot or paper ballot.  During elimination rounds, all ballots will be paper ballots.

Packets will be fully electronic (paper ballots will be scanned, sorted, and merged with eballots).  Team debate will have a traditional in-person ballot review (for sake of expediency) on Friday; Individual Debate will have an electronic coaches review overnight on Saturday night (coaches will be emailed the full prelim electronic packet and results sheets for their squad).
