I'm back baby
I've been meaning to distribute this specific file for a while - consider this my apology for being awol from Cross-X for so long. I posted this on another thread, but I wanted to put this here because I wanted to start this thread anyways.
This isn't everything I have on CtP (not even close), but it's a good baseline file. Hopefully this helps anyone who needs it.
Expect more files like this in the coming weeks - I'm assembling what I'd like to call a "Small School Starter Pack." I met a lot of debaters at the UTNIF camp (both in CX and LD) who came from similar situations I did as a debater, starting your own program or trying to make an underdeveloped one competitive, but I was fortunate to have a lot of help with that when I was at Kealing since I got that hella thicc prep out from LBJ-LASA - not everyone has a support network like that. Consider this my way of giving back to the community that has given me so much, and making it so that people who want to get into this activity have an easier time about it.
Don't expect much topic specific literature here for a couple reasons -
A - Snowball's already doing that with the Daily Card (and a fantastic job he's doing indeed)
B - I want this to be a place for good backfiles you can use for years to come, the kind of stuff that I've found small programs are in dire need of the most, on account of the fact that they don't have much prep-out from prior years.
C - I want this to work for both LDers and CXers (gotta look out for my own kind). I'll also be posting some LD-specific files from time to time.
Anyways, this is the first of three files I already plan to release - the other two are a Cap and FW masterfile. If you wanna request specific stuff, let me know! And if anyone wants to contribute, feel free to post stuff here, whether it's add-ons to some of my files, or completely different ones. I'm also probably gonna be writing lectures to put up here, so if you wanna help out with that hit me up! And feel free to let me know what all you guys think about this!
