Fee:Cost is $100 per school. This fee must be paid to Lindale High School and sent to Rory McKenzie, clerk, before the competition begins (920 E. Hubbard St. Lindale, TX 75771). Schools are encouraged to send checks ahead of time. You can use this information sheet as an invoice.

Lunch:
There will be a order form available before the tournament to order sandwiches from Subway.

Immediately after awards, all state qualifiers and their coaches will need to meet with the committee to select legislation for state and discuss judging obligations. (If you'd like to consider a new piece of legislation for state that wasn't debated at district, prepare ahead of time and bring it with you.)
