I've been doing policy debate for three years now at Meadows School. I have experience running k's and CP's though I don't have any preferences toward other off-case arguments. For speaks, I can handle spreading pretty well, though I will give lower speaker points if your spreading is approaching unintelligible. Also, while not a requirement I appreciate the use of emphasis and good body language/hand motion when speaking. I will vote on good theory that is well explained, but poorly explained theory are some of my least favorite arguments. Plus I normally prefer tech over truth, though you can convince me of how I should weigh my ballot. For novice especially, feel free to use debate jargon, though I dislike it if you use these terms incorrectly. Lastly, even though I've been debating for a few years I don't know everything so I may not immediately know what you're referring to if you list a specific argument like "perf con," (don't worry I know what perf con is it's just an example) so I apologize in advance if I can't answer all of your questions and I ask that you always take time to fully explain your arguments during CX and rebuttals.
