If you are a debater that got soaked today, and it was your ONLY jacket, try using a hair dryer on your jacket this evening. If your jacket is beyond drying, you have the option to not wear your jacket on Tuesday. A survey of coaches recommend wearing a jacket, even if a bit damp, and we leave this to your discretion.
