hey y’all :) I’m a third year debater for quarry lane

put me on the email chain: spatel0275@gmail.com

- send speech docs with cut cards for case and rebuttal BEFORE the speech.

as a judge, I expect you to be respectful and inclusive in round — don’t read arguments that are racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. because they WILL NOT be evaluated and you will most likely get terrible speaks/get dropped. also, if your argument(s) cover sensitive subject areas, please read a content warning.

- tech > truth

- speed: I’m good with speed but if you’re going really fast (>250 WPM) and don't send a speech doc I'm going to miss things.

- have comparative warranting, it makes it difficult to evaluate direct clash if there's no fleshed out warrants — I will generally prefer well-warranted arguments over a dump of unwarranted ev

weigh!! -- comparative weighing + impact calc are v important so make sure it's there

- i like to see metaweighing -- if both sides are going for different mechanisms (ie: magnitude vs probability), it makes it much easier to evaluate clash

frontline in second rebuttal -- frontline all responses against arguments that you want to go for in the second rebuttal, if you don't frontline defense against an argument that you go for, and your opponents extend it, I'll evaluate it as conceded

- also, defense is NOT sticky -- something must be in summary and final focus at a minimum to make it into the ballot. the final focus should essentially parallel the summary

extensions: extend the entire argument -- (ex. saying "extend the john '19 turn" is not enough for you to go for that turn) Links and impacts NEED to be in summary to be evaluated in final focus. Cohesion between the summary and ff are v important

signpost! -- i generally flow well but if your speech is messy, disorganized, and not well signposted i could miss stuff on the flow which obv is not good.

other:

- send speech docs/evidence before your speech!

- don't take an excessive amount of time to send evidence and don't steal prep while your opponents are sending evidence

- don't go over time, there's a grace period of ten seconds but anything beyond that is way over

- solid time allocation, efficiency, quality responses, and strategic round strategy = good speaks (i care less about speaking style, more about how strategic youre being)

- I don't really pay attention to cross but be nice! — I won’t evaluate something from cross unless you bring it up in a speech.
