Folks:  Linda Collier asked me for some information on our final round
judges for the tourney this weekend.  In the interests of full
disclosure, I'm sending you the same email.

I have addresses for Cornell, Towson, Marist, Vermont, King's, Richmond,
and Syracuse.  Ken and Scott, as CEDA and NDT regional reps, would you
mind too much forwarding this to all the schools in our respective
regions or sending me the email list?  Had a ball at King's this
weekend--thanks, Mike.  Hope to see all of you in the scenic Hudson
valley this weekend--the leaves have just started to turn and by
Saturday they should be great.  Nate

i had six teams in the rookie division at wheatons tourney.  here are a
few things i noticed:

-there were 2 6-0 negs and then it dropped of to 2-4.  there may have been
a 3-3.  there was a 6-0 and 5-1 affs and lots of 3-3.

-my kids really liked the division.  it really was easier to prepare them
to debate only one side.  and since they did it all six rounds they got a
lot of practice and coaching from other judges.

-it seems ideal to get students interested.  all the debaters had never
debated, except practice rounds.  and even my teams that went 2-4 had fun,
and felt like they learned alot.  not one was turned off of debate.

-it didnt trade off with novice-the novice division went to quarters.

-there did not seem to be any ringers.  i judged 3 rookie debates.  some
were better trained than others, but not to the point that teams were
getting crushed.

-the judges were very encouraging.  lots of nice, positive, nurturing

Dear community,
forgive me for the first attempt, sorry for that.
I would like the views of effects topicality from the debate world.  I have
heard all kinds of completely different views and variations of this
argument.  Specifically, how should the position be set up and run,  when is
this a viable argument, and anything else.
Thanks for your help.
