We will be following Virginia state-mandated requirements at the time of the tournament.

Please check this page frequently, as any updates, especially in regard to county or facility guidelines or restrictions will be posted here. COVID-19 could cause us to adjust our tournament guidelines, and grace and flexibility will be needed in order to have this opportunity.

Based on the current Executive Orders from the Governor of VA, the following requirements will be in place for this event.

1. 100% masking - All students, parents, judges, workers, and family members, age 5 and older, will be required to mask 100% of the time indoors, to include while debating and judging.

2. Social distancing - A maximum of 10 people will be allowed in each competition room.

3. The Fellowship Hall will be configured with spaced tables, which must be used only by family groupings. Each family desiring to have a table must reserve one during the registration process.

4. No food will be offered on the premises for competitors and their families. Families need to provide their own meals, and coolers are welcome.

5. No handshakes with opponents or judges. During cross-ex, the questioner and speaker will stand at his/her place at the table, in order to maintain 6 feet of distance.

6. Competitors will be disqualified if they do not adhere to these guidelines.

7. Do not come or bring any family members who are currently feeling ill or with fever, sore throat, or cough. All fees will be refunded for any cancellation.
