update for georgetown: i've never done pf nor have i seen a pf round prior to this tournament. just make sure you send as much prewritten stuff as you can in the email chain and make your argumentation clear.

Debate background: I debated for Barrington for 3 years, 2 on the nat circuit. I ran mostly fem/queer theory and other similar K stuff. I'm super familiar with traditional LD-- that's what my school did most. I'm currently starting my freshman year at NYU, and am debating on the policy team.

For the most part, do your thing. Just make sure you do it well.

General:

If for any reason you feel unable to continue the round, feel free to stop time and let me know. This is ~supposed~ to be a fun learning experience for every debater–– I understand how bad it can get. In the case that you feel unsafe, uncomfortable, or otherwise unable to continue, don't hesitate to stop round. No pressure.

Trigger warnings please! Also, do not misgender your opponent. If this continues past one clarification, I'm docking speaks and we're having a serious discussion after round. See more info below on bigotry in round.

Be nice. Don't be an asshole.

Don't shake my hand.

This applies to everything I'm about to elaborate on, so if you read nothing else, read this: I really think the most valuable skill you can learn from debate is the art of synthesis. Being able to explain, extrapolate, and impact your arguments is the most important thing to me as a judge for LD rounds. If you do nothing else in round, make an effort to give me good analysis and weighing of your args.

My threshold for adequate responses to theory is extremely low, especially in the context of argument weighing/analysis of topical-layer arg dynamics. That said, I'm quickest to vote off reasonability.

Send all speech docs in the email chain.

For the tricky framework/high theory stuff, be ready to actually give good warrants on the nuances of your stuff. I'm not well-versed in it, so spell it out.

High theory: explain it well.

Misgendering and slurs are voting issues and will tank your speaks. No bigoted args and discourse.

"Decorum" standards low––swear, perform, get passionate about what you're talking about.

Asking questions during the RFD is a great idea, but continuing the debate after time stops is not.

If you have any questions regarding any of the above, let me know before round. I'm happy to answer any other questions/concerns after round as well :)
