December Congress Chambers

Student Congress chamber assignments and seating charts for the December 4 FGCCFL tournament at King High School have been published on Tabroom and below.

Chambers will set their own agendas. For sponsor information, refer to the cover sheet that accompanied the docket. However, legislators are admonished to prepare to debate ALL items on the docket, not just those whose sponsors are in their chamber.

Updated League Documents

The Use of Electronic Devices policy now allows debaters to use their phones for timing, provided they demonstrate to the judge that the phone is silenced and in airplane mode.

The Local Tournament Schedule now starts all rounds of IE (except Extemp) at the same time as corresponding rounds of Debate. A draw time for Round 4 of Extemp has also been specified.

The Student Congress Manual has been updated to Revision 21.11.1.

This update consists principally of technical corrections. The only substantive changes are a leniency in resubmission of legislation and a procedure (ยง 21(d)) by which a rank may be recorded for a PO who is neither ranked by a judge nor specifically excluded from ranking.
