Michigan JV states 2005

Recommended Posts

I was very impressed when I saw how you rolled to novice nationals in Iowa City a few years ago. 1 coach, 4 debaters, and enough gear to deploy two teams into a contested LZ crammed into one mid-sized sedan. And you still were able to give us Objectivism Valentines!

 

An interesting 8 hour drive to be sure, but good packing skills allowed us to get there in good order. Plus, much fun was had along the way.

 

And I still have the lunchbox the valentines came in. Best 10 cent investment I ever made.

I made a present to celebrate you being a longtime member.

Now that isn't very nice Laura. There are lots of things in Iowa, including my alma mater. Though I agree that the Atlanta tournament is better because it has the world's best coaching lounge, shuttle busses, and no student judges.

There were student judges at Woodward...but they were all hella qualified and stuff. And the shuttle buses were badass. As to the coaching lounge, OASie described it as "really it was more the coaching frat house"

Well, I was trying to prove that there was something cool in Iowa and searched their state government's tourist section. Here are the results:

 

Iowa in Numbers-

 

results for "fun": 4

 

results for "stimulating": 0

 

results for "not corn": 0

 

results for "largest popcorn ball": 1

 

Wow.

 

To be honest, there must be something wrong with the website, but still. Wow.

I'll be tearing it up at my third tournament in a row that is the MBA, EK, JV states death march with Maria. Expect to see us running good arguments, and debating well and stuff. Okay, so it'll be the same old same old. We may try to get the Okemos argument recycler going well enough again to have an AI advantage, just to complete the Okemos debate history book that is our 1AC.

 

(Three years ago, AI case, two years ago LFAs case, last year heg advantage. I believe in it's first year of debate, on the privacy topic, there was even a Korematsu case, so we're the sum total of it almost)
