Tomorrow will start the “reboot” of Extemp Central. One thing that readers will see is the release of ten new International and United States extemp questions. These questions will always be posted on Monday as most readers said that was something that they used the most.
The schedule for other things such as quizzes, R&Ds, and the release of local/national results will take place on an as needed (or as able) basis. If you have local results, feel free to send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My aim is to have a weekly column devoted to results at the local level. When sending results, put the name of the tournament, the names of the finalists and their placing, and what school they are from. This makes it very easy to get these results on the site. With this weekend’s Sunvitational, I am also hoping to get something typed up about that tournament, so when results are finalized if someone can send me those I would appreciate it. I am also looking into calculating the standings for the National Points Race and releasing that in the coming weeks as well, possibly by the Barkley Forum in a couple of weeks.
Finally, readers will see a PayPal donation button like the one below affixed to tomorrow’s questions. There is also a donation page that is on the right sidebar as well. If you click this button, you can donate funds to keep this website operating. The more money we raise, the more content can be included on the site. All funds go back into the site in terms of time for resources, the cost of purchasing subscriptions for news content, and the trophy for the National Points Race. My initial aim for Extemp Central was to provide resources for free so I am not keen on putting things behind a paywall. As always, contributions of any amount are appreciated.
