First I would like to say happily that I have been out of the active debate
world now for over two years.
With that being said Donnie, I put my money where my mouth is. I actually
donated enough money to cover tuition for one student in the camp. Why
did I do this? Simple Donnie, I find that what has most contributed to my
success outside of debate came from many of the discussions I had and from
listening to people exchanging diverse ideas. I also think that the Loon may
do a lot to make this activity that much less intimidating to those
entering the activity. Additionally what is wrong with an intellectual forum for
which people can discuss these issues and apply them to debate and maybe
the real world.
While I appreciate your diatribe, I would say this camp out may do a lot
more to influence the success these students have in the real world.
Ultimately the debate career is 4 years, but what we take from it impacts the
rest of our lives.
Finally, with respect to your claims of pot smoking and boozing, I am sure
that the instructors will not facilitate either underage drinking or get
them weed. Especially because of the legal liability they would expose
themselves too from students and institutions who are paying for their students
