Chris and Kelly recently did the tab for the Pan Pacific Championship. They were efficient, honest, calm and fun to work with. Glad they will be taking care of Nationals :)

Subject: USU 2011 announces Tab Team
With over 200 teams at the tournament at the University of Vermont, the
task of tabbing the tournament correctly and moving it along on schedule
will be the largest task ever at a WUDC tournament in North America.
Today, the tournament announced its tab team.
Chris Richter of Seattle University and Kelly Welch of Portland State
University will be in charge of tab for USU 2011.
“I have been very impressed by Chris’ work at tournaments I have been to
and especially USU 2010 in Denver," said USU convener Alfred Snider.
"Chris has worked in several tab situations with Kelly and they feel
comfortable together and on the same page. I am glad to welcome two
great friends of our debate program to the tab room.”
