The Jeffersonian Spring Fling at Johnson High
2019 — Gainesville, GA/US
You are cordially invited to attend “The Jefersonian Spring Fling at Johnson High” on April 13, 2019 (which happens to be TJ’s 276th Birthday). Designed to be a fun, quick way to keep in practice ahead of "Cat Nats" and Nationals and to earn points before the year is out, the tournament will run on a limited basis in the following areas:
Divisions we hope to include (based upon numbers, of course): All IEs, Congressional Debate, LD, PF, BQD, and WSD.
Tentative Schedule --
Round I and Session I of Congressional Debate 8:30 – 10AM
Round II 10 – 11:30AM
Lunch ("on your own") 11:30 – 1PM
Round III and Session II of Congressional Deb. 1 – 2:30PM
Round IV 2:30 – 4PM
Nice space for a three cornered hat contest or the like (just something fun to fill time) hereJ
Awards will be certificate only, and fees per entry $5 each ($10 for PF/WSD teams or duo IE entries).
There will be a limited number of IE judges for hire, and likely VERY limited number of debate judges, so folks will need to bring their own judges, for the most part.
LD: Resolved: The illegal use of drugs ought to be treated as a matter of public health, not of criminal justice.
PF: Resolved: The United Nations should grant India permanent membership on the Security Council.
BQD: Resolved: Humans are primarily driven by self-interest.
WSD: Please see topic list posted as additional file.
Congress packet is also posted as an additional file.
