Notice: Changes to PF Rules

If your school has Public Forum debaters, you may have heard that the NCFL will be changing the lengths of the summary speeches and prep time to 3 minutes. Currently these are all 2 minutes.

Since the NCFL rules change for PF does not take effect until May, we have decided that the BCFL will implement the rules change as of January 1, 2020 to give our teams a chance to compete with the new format.  Until then, we will continue to use 2 minute final focus and summary and 2 minutes prep time.

We are currently planning for at least the first 4 tournaments to be conducted online (much the way that many National tournaments have been). Be sure to check out the Tournament Calendar, and we look forward to seeing all of you (virtually) soon!
