Have fun and do your best.
I don't flow cross fire.
Everything in your final must have been said in summary for me to flow it. I handle speed well, but speak clearly.
I will not intervene in the round to make a decision unless the round was somewhat of a wash and can't be decided without it. Please don't make me have to do that.
Weigh as much as possible, otherwise I'll have to weigh the round myself and you'll probably disagree with the way I do it.
30: Debating at a varsity level as a novice. Great speaking and great coverage of the flow.
29: Debating very well at the novice level. Above average coverage of the flow and above average speaking
28: Debating slightly above the novice level. Overall, a good speaker and debater, but they make a few common novice mistakes throughout the round.
27: Debating at the novice level. Makes a lot of mistakes, but hey that's the learning curve.
26: The debater is doing the bare minimum when it comes to flow coverage and speaking.
25: The debater is being mean or unprofessional, or can't be understood.
Any lower means you probably punched someone and that's not good.
One of you won't agree with my decision, but that's life.
