Status: Tournament Completed

<h1><strong>2016 NCFA Debate Camp at Santa Rosa Junior College</strong></h1> <p>We are pleased to extend an invitation to the 2016 NCFA Debate Camp hosted by Santa Rosa Junior College.&nbsp; The camp will take place on Saturday, September 17 and focus on NPDA and NFA-LD style debate. This year we are continuing with a new format that we hope will make the camp beneficial to both our rookie and more seasoned competitors alike.&nbsp; The event will follow last year&rsquo;s single day format, and will consist of lectures and labs in the morning with a 3 round mock tournament in the afternoon.</p> <p>Like previous years it is our plan to offer advanced lectures in the morning for your more experienced debaters.&nbsp; It is our hope this will increase participation by seasoned debaters who will then participate on judging panels in the afternoon. The advanced sessions will be collapsed (both NPDA and LD open debaters) and will focus on debate theory.</p> <p>All formats of debate will be governed by their respective national rules of debating. Rounds 1 and 2 will be preset; round 3 will be powered off of round 1. There will be no awards ceremony, however directors will be emailed the records and seedings of each debate team after the event. Ballots will also be available electronically after the event. Disclosure and discussion is encouraged, but please stay aware of the schedule when giving novice debaters feedback and don&rsquo;t forget to return your ballots!</p> <p><strong>Judging</strong></p> <p>One judge covers two entries in any form of debate per day. A judge can be split between two different formats on the same day (Parli/LD) but may only be assigned to one pool by the director. If judging commitment is a problem, please let us know beforehand.</p> <p>Any coach, faculty member, or open level competitor with at least one year of experience may judge at the camp. Please bring enough judges to cover your entry. Entries may be restricted based on available judging; we are not planning on hiring judges. Remember our hope is that you will bring your open debaters to help with our new format.</p> <p><strong>Fees</strong></p> <p>Our fee structure is designed to be very affordable and accessible. We have to cover administrative costs, and some basic materials services. Please contact Ryan Guy if these fees constitute a financial hardship for your squad.</p> <p>School Fee -&shy;‐&nbsp;&nbsp; $5</p> <p>We are not permitting uncovered entries, so there is no uncovered fee. If you would like to &ldquo;rent&rdquo; a judge from another school we can set that up if judges are available.</p> <p><strong><em>Non-debating students may attend the event for free and observe.</em></strong></p> <p><strong>Please make checks payable to NCFA</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Guidelines for Maintaining a Professional and Respectful Educational Environment:</strong></p> <p>All tournament attendees are to be protected from an intimidating, hostile, or threatening work or educational environment. All attendees will be held to the standards established by&nbsp;<a href="http://law.onecle.com/california/education/212.5.html" target="_blank">California Education Code 212.5</a>&nbsp;and/or&nbsp;<a href="http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/tix_dis.html" target="_blank">Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972</a>.&nbsp; Failure to follow these guidelines may result in being removed from the tournament and/or being disqualified from the round in question.&nbsp; All incidences of such violations should be reported to the tournament host. Judges will be instructed that they may dismiss or award a loss to a student who violates California Education Code 212.5 and/or Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Entry</strong></p> <p>Entry for the Debate Camp will be done online at <a href="https://www.forensicstournament.net/NCFADebateCamp/16">https://www.forensicstournament.net/NCFADebateCamp/16</a> with a closing date of Thursday, September 15 at 4pm. Changes ARE permitted in person the morning of the event at registration; at that time rosters will be finalized for the practice debates later in the day. This should give us the opportunity to make hybrid teams if an odd number of debaters make the event from given squads.</p> <p>Please do not send your debaters to the event without registering them in the tournament. Adding entire schools day-of adds unnecessary stress to the event. Also, please send a coach or other representative from your school to oversee and supervise the learning of your students even if you are not judging or lecturing.</p> <p><strong>Directions</strong></p> <p><em>1501 Mendocino Avenue</em></p> <p><em>Santa Rosa CA 95401</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>From the north:</strong></p> <p>Travel south on Hwy 101.</p> <p>Exit at Steele Lane turnoff.</p> <p>At stoplight, make left turn onto Steele Lane.</p> <p>Proceed east-bound on Steele Lane to Mendocino Ave.</p> <p>Turn right on Mendocino Ave.</p> <p>At the intersection of Mendocino Ave. and Elliot Ave., turn right onto Elliot Ave.</p> <p>Turn right at Emeritus Circle and park in the rear, next to Emeritus Hall.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Parking in $4.00 for the day.&nbsp; You may park in any white lined spot.&nbsp; Avoid yellow spots.</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>From the south:</strong></p> <p>Travel north on Hwy 101.</p> <p>Exit at College Avenue turnoff.</p> <p>At stoplight, make right turn onto College Avenue.</p> <p>Proceed east-bound on College Avenue to Mendocino Ave.</p> <p>Turn left on Mendocino Ave.</p> <p>At the intersection of Mendocino Ave. and Elliot Ave., turn left onto Elliot Ave.</p> <p>Turn right at Emeritus Circle and park in the rear, next to Emeritus Hall.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Parking in $4.00 for the day.&nbsp; You may park in any white lined spot.&nbsp; Avoid yellow spots.</strong></p> <p>When you arrive have your students head to the main cafeteria <strong>(</strong><strong>Bertolini 4612).&nbsp; </strong>Announcements and the camp open will take place there.&nbsp; Please send a coach to check in with us at registration <strong>Emeritus 1518 (first floor, south side) </strong>which is directly across the street from Bertolini.&nbsp;</p> <p>Thanks and see you in Santa Rosa</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Ryan Guy (director)</strong></p> <p><a href="mailto:guyr@mjc.edu">guyr@mjc.edu</a></p> <p>209-575-6110</p> <p>707-703-1578&nbsp; &lt; Cell</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Hal Sanford (host)</strong></p> <p><a href="mailto:hsanford@santarosa.edu">hsanford@santarosa.edu</a></p> <p>707- 508-7411</p> <h1><strong>2016 NCFA Debate Camp at Santa Rosa Junior College</strong></h1> <p>We are pleased to extend an invitation to the 2016 NCFA Debate Camp hosted by Santa Rosa Junior College.&nbsp; The camp will take place on Saturday, September 17 and focus on NPDA and NFA-LD style debate.
