Jacob and I are not able to make it next weekend (we will both be out of town), so the round this morning was our last. I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone that I have had the pleasure of knowing through debate these past three years. All the judges, coaches, and wonderful friends/competitors make this activity what it is, and I would not have stayed involved in debate had it not been for the people I met along the way. Thanks everyone for a fantastic year--I had a great time with you all, especially because the debate community in Colorado has grown closer this past year. I especially want to thank my partner in crime, Jacob--it's been an honor debating with you and I am sorry that we couldn't have had just a few more rounds together. Good luck to everyone competing next weekend. To those that qualify, I know you will represent Colorado well.
