We invite entries to the Hockaday Women’s Round Robin held Saturday and Sunday, March 28-29, 2015 on the Hockaday campus. The round robin is an opportunity to compete against, and join together to celebrate, women in debate. It is our hope that you will make plans to attend.
All women who have received at least one bid to the TOC are automatically accepted into the round robin. Any women who would like to attend may submit an application regardless of whether she has received a TOC bid or not.
Historically, the round robin has been a site of excellent competition and comradery for those who have attended and it is our goal to continue that tradition. The tournament will feature a relaxed schedule with plenty of opportunities to engage in conversation and enjoy each other’s company. Awards are being provided by Vetro Glassblowing and every participant will receive a glass blown flower.
The entry deadline is March 6th, 2015.
We look forward to hosting you,
Dr. Charles Walts, Director of Debate
Mr. Jordan Innerarity, Assistant Director of Debate

We will admit up to 24 participants. Any women debater who has received at least one bid to the TOC is automatically accepted into the round robin. We will accept entries on a first come, first serve basis and will close entries once we reach 24.
A women may apply for a contingency bid and we will accept those entries if needed to reach the 24 participant cap. In order to apply for a contingency bid, please fill out the form at the end of the invite.
All Entries are due no later than March 6th, 2015 via the Joy of Tournaments system. Once again, to ensure access to the event, entries will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Please email Dr. Walts to secure your entry.
Entry Fees and Judging:
There is no entry fee to attend the Women’s Round Robin.
We would very much like it if each entry is accompanied by a judge, but understand that this is not always possible. If you are unable to provide a judge, please contact Dr. Walts to ensure arrangements are made.
In the past, we have hosted several debaters in the homes of Hockaday students. We will continue to offer this an option, but there are several excellent hotels close to campus. Please notify Dr. Walts if you would like to be hosted by one of the Hockaday debaters.
