Claremont's sending three varsity teams -- Christina Elmore and Daniel Rosengard, Brian Jackson and Katherine Taylor, and Amy Nelson and Margarete Walden. Unfortunately, Aaron's got an LSAT class that's going to keep us out of Fresno and Claremont, but I'm looking forward to seeing some of you in Claremont next weekend!!

I hope Fresno does that 3-resolution elimination/selection thing! That's always cool.
09-19-02, 05:12 PM
if memory serves me, they do do that.

I didn't join my debate team until after Fresno last year, but several people around here have mentioned it as being one of the few NorCal tourney's that does offer strikes in prelims.
Diablo Valley will be sending six teams, two per division. See ya'll tommorow...

The strike system was actually the brain child of a former coach for Fresno City College and many of his protege are still active in the community. As for strikes being used at Fresno, I have been to the tournament 5 times (4 to compete, 1 to coach) and sometimes they use strikes, other time they do not.
BTW, Sam you will find that NCFA is probably the only region to offer strike in prelims at any tournament.

Bonnie has also had strikes in prelims at Colorado College in the past few years, although I am unsure of this year. I know of no other tournaments in Colorado or the midwest where strikes are used... usually the tournament and judge pool is too small.

Patty, are you talking about judge strikes or topic strikes? I am refering to topic strikes. I don't understand why judging pool size would make a difference.

Also, I think many cities and states throughout the entire nation have strikes. I have seen many people roll large heavy balls down long wooden lanes and knock over several bottles for strikes.
So, it's not just Fresno, or Colorado college that has strikes.

Northridge is gonna have them this year.

Hey Jed who's going to write up the rezs, you, Becky, or are you going to let the parli people do it?
*Is hoping for the third choice*
09-27-02, 08:32 AM
Me! but i'll probably get help from the parli folks. how's this one sound: This house believes that Jed should be elected President... ;)
09-27-02, 08:51 AM
"This house believes that Jed should be elected President..."
Aren't we having a discussion somewhere about topics that can't be affirmed?
09-27-02, 09:23 PM
This house believes that Jed should be elected President
If by "Jed" you mean Jed Bartlet, then yeah, it's a great res.
