Dec 7 - Season Wrap-up + Summer Camp Information

The last practice for most for most of our novice and 2nd year debaters will be Monday, December 7th at 6PM -- 6PM regardless of your usual practice time.   For now we're planning on holding this in room 324.

Our plan is to talk through a number of end-of-season wrap up items.

The big agenda item is to talk about summer camps for debate (and speech).   We have a lot of exciting news and planning information for you. 

This should last about an hour and conclude about 7PM.
