  2. West Bloomfield Debate Invitational Dear Colleague, You and your team are invited to the West Bloomfield Invitational Debate Tournament on November 17th &18th 2006. This year’s tournament will be an exciting competition that represents the new changes and reflects the changing phases of the West Bloomfield Debate Program. Varsity, JV and Novice policy debates will be held at West Bloomfield High School. We hope to have a very competitive tournament as novice states are right around the corner. Last year’s tournament ended up being a great prep for novice states for a number of teams! FORMATS Two-person Varsity (Friday/Saturday) - This division will participate in five rounds of swing debate. Three of the preliminary rounds will be power paired. The number of elimination rounds will depend on the number of entries. Two-person JV (Friday/Saturday) – The format for this division will be the same as the Varsity. Two-person Novice (Friday/Saturday) – There will be two preset rounds and three power paired rounds. The number of elimination rounds will depend on the number of entries. *****Lunch and all elimination rounds will be at West Bloomfield High School***** JUDGES You must provide one judge per four debaters in each division (i.e., one judge covers two teams). You may not use one judge in more than one division, other than JV and Varsity, which will be tabbed together (thus, if you need a half-judge in Varsity and a half-judge in JV, you need two half-judges not one judge to cover both positions). JUDGES ARE OBLIGATED ONE ROUND PAST YOUR TEAM’S ELIMINATION!!!! Hired judges are limited (first come, first serve) at a cost of $75 for a half-judge and $150 for a full judge. If you know of people who want to judge, have them let us know. FEES The entry fee per Varsity/JV and a two-person novice is $45. The entry fee per novice unit is $45. Please make checks payable to the West Bloomfield Debate or Joel Thursam. AWARDS Each team advancing beyond preliminary rounds will receive a trophy. There will be ten speaker awards for varsity, ten speaker awards for each novice division, and seven for junior varsity. We ask that you stay for awards if possible, and help celebrate the accomplishments of other teams. DEADLINES Entries must be received by Wednesday, November 15th, 2006 at 8pm. Fees are frozen at 8pm of that Wednesday. CONTACTS I can be reached at the following numbers: Work (248) 865-6720, extension 6842, ask for Joel Thursam. fax (248) 865-6756. *****Please fax the names of your debaters by 4 p.m. Nov. 15th mail Joel Thursam West Bloomfield High School, 4925 Orchard Lake Road, West Bloomfield, MI 48323. email The preferred method of entry is email Thursam@westbloomfield.k12.mi.us (you will receive a message confirming that your entry was received).

    i agree. i debated with laura at camp and she was never rude to anyone in rounds, and sometimes (all the time) it IS annoying when people keep talking and laughing and you're trying to prep a half way decent rebuttal.
  6. http://www.amnestyusa.org/news/document.do?id=ENGUSA20051005002 so is this still inherent?
  7. West Bloomfield needs judges for EGR, i think like two. please e-mail thursam@westbloomfield.k12.mi.us for more details. yeah i know this is somewhat early
  8. you're right. i just dont know much about it either. basically we lost markovic this year and he was kind of everything. i guess what we're looking for is someone in the area that can come after school like twice a week, judge, and help cut files/ prep positions. i'm not really sure what thursam wants though, or how much he is willing to pay. but that seems generally who we're looking for.
  9. email thursam@westbloomfield.k12.mi.us if interested
  10. what exactly is it and how is it different than executive order?
