Here is the zoom for extemp prep https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85981117447 

Passcode: 477310

(extemp prep will start at the beginning of each speech round, this may change, but since we have many extempers double entered in debate and as a result it makes it hard for us to do it any differently)

We look forward to seeing you on March 13th and 14th!
