Tournament Format and Logistics:
Our tournament format will depend on the number of teams, but we anticipate using a two-stage group system, and guaranteeing all teams that stay to the tournament's conclusion at least 8 games.
Rounds will follow standard format: consisting of 20 tossups, for 15 point powers and -5 point negs.
Registration will begin at 8 am and matches will start at 9 am. The majority of this tournament will take place in Kohlberg Hall, in the center of campus. Free guest parking is available in either Whittier Lot or Benjamin West. The town of Swarthmore, a ten-minute walk from Kohlberg Hall, offers several options for lunch. Alternatively, there are numerous restaurants within a 10 minute drive of campus along Baltimore Pike.
