The FGCCFL rules for electronic devices have been updated for 2021-2022. Key points:
- Judges are permitted to use electronic devices for timing and electronic balloting.
- Students are no longer required to have their phones off. However, phones MUST be silenced and put away during rounds.
- Internet access (via school network or hotspot) is permitted in LD, PFD, TD, Congress, and Extemp Prep. However, communication with persons outside the round is prohibited and will result in disqualification.
The FGCCFL tournament schedule has been updated for in-person tournaments in 2021-2022.
Revision 21.10 of the FGCCFL Student Congress Manual is now available. This revision rolls back most of the changes made in 2020 and restores Student Congress to two sessions per tournament. It was written with conventional tournaments in mind; annotations for online tournaments are highlighted.
Videos of the online judge trainings held October 3 are now available on the new Judge Training page. Judge “cheat sheets” for the rest of 2020 and IE rules/criteria have also been posted.
