To see where the District stands in terms of qualifiers, please take a look at this spreadsheet:
I recommend putting in your entry as soon as possible so that we can get a sense of which events are "close" to earning an additional qualifier to Nationals. Then the schools that have left-over entries from their allotment can help out. I know I personally ask my novices and post-novs to "fill" whenever we have left over entries - it's good practice and experience for them and it'll help Eastern Missouri get another kid or two to Nationals.
Details about registering judges will be coming shortly (separate emails may be easier to read).
We've received legislation from Ladue, Brentwood, Parkway Central, Clayton, Jefferson City, Parkway South, and Oakville. 11 total pieces of legislation were submitted. The deadline was last Friday, but... in the interest of being reasonable and pragmatic, I'm not going to be able to sit down and formalize the legislation packet until Wednesday evening of this week. If you can get me legislation by Wednesday at 4:00 p.m, I'll get it into the packet!
Regarding Rules Review:
I'm in the process of finishing the video up and should have it out by the end of the week.
Let me know what questions you have!
