Eric,

Your tournament looks awesome and I'm excited to attend with the Cornell squad. 

Just a thought about the issue of novices. You say that novices are those who have spoken in fewer than 3 WUDC tournaments. Typically, the definition of novice that we've been using in our region is a student in his/her first year of intercollegiate debating in any format. This was the standard used at Cornell's Novice Nationals last year, as well as several other tournaments with novice breakouts in the region. 

Obviously, as your tournament is probably the first of the year for most institutions, novices that attend will satisfy both definitions. Still, to avoid confusion, it might be helpful if everyone agreed on what "novice" means in the American BP circuit.

Other people's input?

Best,
Paul
