  9. We'll take you back anytime Evan, still need to work on those gestures I will let Nick Owen answer the question about extemp--I know there are a number of very specific lectures over the event...
  10. Are you looking for an inexpensive two week-long intensive camp? Are you interested in both debate and forensics camp? If so, we offer a solution for all these problems. Our debate camp is a week before the forensics camp and you can do both or just sign up for a two week debate camp. Don’t be fooled by others who say they are cheaper, look at the facts and the number of days our camp is offered. Kids will get more intensive and diverse education on ALL the forensics events from the best the state of Kansas has in former students and current high school and college coaches. I honestly think our debate camp is the best in KS for those who are planning on debating the KS style. Kids are also exposed to a number of other DCI style arguments and we are very flexible with what style kids want and need to learn. The forensics camp offers specialized training from coaches who excel in different events, offering a adaptive curriculum to meet any students needs. If you have any questions about the debate portion, please feel free to contact me at Melissa.Newton@McPherson.com, or Melissa.Ann.Newton@gmail.com. If you have questions about the forensics portion, please contact Nick at: Nicholas.Owen@usd305.com. We hope to see many of you this summer at the Heart of America Institute.

    DCI apps ?

    We can't seem to find the # of teams in divisions, I assume others may have the same problem or maybe your coach is much more organized than I Anyhow--anyone know the number of teams in Varsity (or the highest division) at: Emporia, Hutch, Winfield, SME, BVN, Great Bend, Waru, and Wichita East. Maybe someone will feel sorry for me and give me some answers....
  16. Pics can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2226841&l=91fc4&id=17022698
  17. If you are interested please contact Mr. Wren at: rwren@wcsks.com Neither of us check Cross X so please send replies directly to him. Thanks!
  18. I have fantastic memories of him, beginning working with him after his novice year, you could always tell he was going to be great. My condolences to the family. Will someone with the knowledge please post when the memorial service will be? What a tragedy and sad weekend....
  19. Thanks so much for organizing this, I think it is of great value to all schools to level the playing field a bit, especially for those who cannot afford many of these prestigious institutes, Thanks again!
  20. When he was in my lab he laughed all the time, and was the kind of kid no one could dislike. Mr. Wood and I have many very fond memories of him, especially on the go-karts. He could and would whoop anyone on a feminism K May he rest in peace and my support and prayers go out to his family....
  21. At the request of those closer to the matter than I, I requested that certain posts be edited by the user of that post because they gave away facts that were associated with the case. All users obliged. I also requested the thread be closed--sorry if I led to the deletion of your posts--your words are still important to me.
  22. I am officially calling for this thread to be either deleted or closed. Moderators have closed and deleted threads over much less. This move would benefit not only people who are personally involved, like myself or the Buhler kids, while perhaps trying to put a stop to so many of the rumors flying around the case. While many are debating this on a very theoretical level--it is not theoretical to me, nor is it theoretical to others who are hurting. This thread drags me down and honestly makes me hate the community I love. While the thread began good--little has come out of the recent posts. Until its closed--I have to stop reading, peoples ability to divorce themselves from this argument is not an option for me, or many others, and frankly, I can't handle more tears over this issue caused by people within this community. You can line by line response to kick a girl while she's down and hurting, but this is my heartfelt please for both sides to stop.....Please just lock the thread Derek.....until then, I'm sure Mr. Wood will let me know when its safe to read Cross X again....
  23. Mr. Young does read the forum.... This is all getting into court case stuff that I think should be out of the public eye.... While I want to argue my heart and soul out, and I've got some damn good arguments to launch--I will not convince Zhara, and have stopped trying. You will not change her opinion, as she will not change yours. All it will do is drain you--if you know she's wrong in your heart, then don't give in by arguing. While it is tempting to rush to the defense of a man you love--ignore her, and spend your time and effort elsewhere..... PS: Have you ever noticed how much debaters do not value emotion? This thread is a good testament to that, very callous...
