We are two weeks away from the close of registration, and we are at the halfway point to our team cap! The teams that have so far registered with us are:
Mt. Hood Community College
University of LaVerne
Rocky Mountain College
University of Pennsylvania
University of California, Davis
University of Michigan-Flint
And, of course, several of our own Portland State University debaters will be in the competition as well. Furthermore, several other schools, national and international, have expressed interest in coming, so we would urge them to get their registration in as soon as possible as it becomes all the more likely we will reach our team cap.
In other exciting news, we have determined the teams that will be participating in our Demonstration Debate for the tournament on Friday, March 4th at 7:00 PM in the Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 298.
Resolution: This House Believes That Eco-Terrorism is a Legitimate Form of Political Expression
Positions (drawn at random):
Opening Government: Emily Ravenscroft and Courtney Pickard, Loyola Marymount University
Opening Opposition: Aaron Baker and Lindsay Bing, Portland State University
Closing Government: Kaleb Brooks and Jon Denzler, Regis University
Closing Opposition: Chase Parker and Benn Watts, Seattle University
We believe this will be a fantastic debate, and the only regret we have is that we couldn't accept more debaters from across the country who had expressed interest in participating in this event.
Please let us know if you have any questions. The link to the invitation again is: http://psudebate.blogspot.com/2011/01/portland-state-university-nationals.html
We'll see you in March!
