  3. Dear Friends, On behalf of the James Madison University debate program, we are pleased to invite you and your debate team to the 20th Annual JMU Invitational High School Debate Tournament. This year’s tournament will be held December 3rd and 4th. This year we will offer novice, junior varsity and varsity divisions in Switch-Side Policy debate and Lincoln-Douglas debate. We hope you choose to bring students across all divisions. Additionally, for the fourth year we will offer public form and student congress. If you plan to bring students in these divisions please let us know early so we can make sure we have enough rooms and awards. Please note some changes from last year’s invite: • We will be returning to traditional trophies this year. We will also be keeping the individual water bottles for the students. • We will be returning registration to Grafton-Stovall to allow students to have a place to hang out without disturbing classes. • On behalf of JMU debate, we hope to see you at James Madison University in December!

  4. My school is now using the Whitman system for going paperless, however, we are having difficulties figuring out how to install the scripts/macros for the template for mac users. does anyone have any input/advice on using this program with a mac?
  5. RedHead

    Synergy on a Mac

    or my new solution. I'll use the viewing computer my school bought as the computer I use to flow on and just jump the word document to my mac and use that as the viewing computer

    Synergy on a Mac

    I'm currently trying to figure out my transition to synergy and have an older mac. I only have 75 gb on my computer and even if i were to erase everything i currently have, downloading bootleg or parallel windows microsoft and excel would still take up almost half of my computers entire memory. If I don't end up just using one of my schools extra viewing laptops for myself, I may end up just buying a smaller PC to use instead of shelling out to purchase microsoft and dealing with memory problems/freezing up on my mac. Anyone who currently uses it on a mac have any advice?
  7. Hey Alex, I'm gonna read through this thread in more detail later, but we're going paperless and are gonna use Synergy, and one thing I've been wondering is how difficult it is to flow on the same laptop you're reading evidence off of- is it easy to flip back and forth or follow along between ev and flows? I also have a mac, I dunno if that matters.
  8. I didn't censor the thread, I created a new one so that the job discussion was in one thread and the 'dont change how I debate' conversation was in a separate one and I had moved all the relevant posts to that over to the other thread.
  9. Everyone can seriously calm down. Bravo's right. While this would seem like a logical place to look for a debate job, this is just a high school site, with the mid-atlantic thread particularly dull and unvisited. Hyland or giantchkn would probably be some of the few coaches who could legitimately find you a job who actually posts here and they have already given you advice. If you're actually expecting any more coaches/helpful people to come along, you're gonna be holding your breath for a seriously long time. If you want to get in touch with people who could ACTUALLY help you, I would probably suggest emailing/PMing Hyland (correct me if I'm wrong) because he would probably have email contacts to most of the coaches in the area, or whoever is leading WACFL right now who would be much more helpful to you. You have also had people from the DC udl offer you contact information. or try visiting http://wacfl.org/ or http://budl.org/ going back to an unrelated note, Frank, I think you live down the hall from my sister at mason.
  10. As they should. However, they should be open to learning other strategies, nick, as you said, for rounds when you have anti-K judges, and you can always improve how you debate the K.
