-Please flow. It makes it easier for me to flow.
-Time your own prep and speeches.
-Don't be rude to your partner or the other team.
-Try to use all of your speech time.
-Give a roadmap before your speech and stick to it.
-I like them. I think they're good arguments to make. If you read one, make sure you understand it and how it functions. Make sure it's competitive and that it has an external net benefit.
-I like these too. Make sure you understand the internal link chain of your DA and have a decent impact card. Specific links are good too, so if you have them, read them.
-I'm familiar with Ks, but I didn't read them very much. I will vote on a K, but as with any argument, you need to explain it.
-I will vote on T if it is extended throughout the round. Make sure you explain the voting issues, your interpretation, why it's better for debate, and why the aff violates your interpretation.
I don't generally give below 27.5 speaker points. That being said, if you're rude to your partner or your opponents or if you say something offensive, you will get less than that.
