Affiliation: Appleton West

Experience: 3 years LD debate, 20+ rounds (2009)

Preferences: Generally vote for anything provided that the implications are explained. In a debate without quality crystallization I will sort out the important questions from my flow. That being said, MAKE IT EASY for me to decide and I will vote for you. I don’t prefer one style of debate over another, but if you are adopting a more “circuit” style of debate and your opponent is adopting a more “traditional” style of debate, or vice versa, make sure that you are explaining how the arguments from both sides interact with one another. Don’t let the round become two ships passing in the night. That will make me unhappy, and, ultimately, it will make you unhappy too. Do as much as you can to take the decision out of my hands.
