Thanks for the reply, I think I have the fundamentals down though. I'm fairly good at spreading and not freaking out when debating fast spreaders for a novice. With my background in LD, I'll probably write a k aff. I'm thinking about labeling Cuba as a developing country since I have an abundance of evidence for that via research for the current LD res. If I'm confident in my ability to run Heidegger, would that be acceptable at districts?
As far as my district goes, it really depends (or so I've heard). I'm going to have cases prepared for both experienced progressive judges and mommy judges. Thanks for the link to the lectures, I'll get started watching them immediately.
