Hello Kairos families,
We are in the beginning planning stages for the Roadrunner Rally! Our website is underway at www.roadrunner2016.homeschooldebate.net
I am trying to get us on the Stoa Calendar too. Please start recruiting friends to come and judge! They can start signing up now (at the link above) and we will email out reminders to them when it gets closer to the tournament date (January 2nd).
We are offering all 12 IEs (speech events) as well as Novice Impromptu.

Congratulations to all of our Kairos families who participated at this year's Coyote Kickoff!
Your parent board leaders and coaches are all extremely proud of how well our club was represented at the tournament. A huge thank-you to all of the parent volunteers who made the event possible, and another congratulations to every student who competed.
We are especially excited to announce that we had several of our students representing Kairos in the final rounds for each of the events. Good job!
As a final note to everyone who competed:
Please bring all of your ballots to this week's club meeting (October 23rd) for the "ballot party." This is when you can go over the feedback you received with our coaches. For all debaters, it is especially important to go over results and RFDs in order to figure out how to fix everything for next time, so don't forget!

So I'm here with another important update for the junior's tournament. For everyone who is planning to compete in apologetics, I have good news for you! Below I've attached the ten questions that will be used in competition, as well as rules for preparation. Please read them carefully! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
1. Students prepare for Apologetics through Bible study, research, and topic organization.
2. Each competitor should create a card file with Scripture, definitions, quotations, and any other material deemed to be helpful.
3. Students may work together on boxes prior to the tournament, but students may not share boxes during competition.
Explain the meaning and significance of the omniscience of God.
Explain the meaning and significance of the omnipotence of God.
Explain the meaning and significance of the omnipresence of God.
Explain the meaning and significance of inerrancy.
What is the purpose of man?
What is the purpose of prayer?
Why does man need salvation?
What is the purpose of the Church?
Why is the resurrection essential to the Christian faith?
Why did Jesus have to die to provide salvation for men?
Another thing to note is that the speech times for this event have not been changed. Students will still have four minutes to prepare, and while there isn't a minimum speaking time, competitors should strive to be no longer than the maximum time of six minutes.

I'm so excited to announce that this year's Coyote Kickoff will also be hosting an official junior's tournament! I'll be serving as its director/coordinator, and am very pleased to bring you some important details.
The Junior Coyote Kickoff is for students aged 11 or under. It will be hosting the following events. Students may enter up to three different events, with the first having a registration fee of $15, and each additional event costing $10. Start preparing now, juniors! Just keep in mind that the time limits (for the interps and platforms) have been lowered to five minutes, rather than ten.
