Impromptu + Team Size [11 Jan 2003|05:22pm]

I was at a tournament today at Stow Monroe Falls in Ohio. It was a lrage one- the school resembles nothing more than a muraled airport- and competition was pretty good. There were even more than 50 people competing in Impromptu, a new event this year. (of which I placed 5th). When I looked at the other schools, they seemed to average 30 kids. Our school... had two improptus, two duo teams, and three LD debaters. That's only 9 kids. It's like an absolute death of the team this year! So I have a couple of questions for you all:

1. Does your area have Impromptu?

2. How many kids show up to compete on an average Saturday?

Does anyone know if our England forenicators got LJ codes or if there are any other team members who want one? I have some codes now.

And there are too many people who do not know how to write a proper CA.

Of course this irritates the heck out of me, considering I did CA for 3 years and my senior thesis was bascially a giant 57 page CA.

If we could get more Bethel folks to actually write CAs (and trust me Dr. D and I would help A LOT) I think we could dominate--esp. at TCFL's.

In finals almost no one really used their method. They just kind of had it lurking in the background, but leaned on their own "expertise" to analyze their artifact. Not a good idea. Some people had 10 year old sources. Some had no sources. I kid you not.

So, Bethel people, let's get a storm of CAs out there. I don't care if this is something you are not comfortable with--remember, I was ONLY an interper when I took the CA challenge....

I'm counting on you!

(sorry for the cross-post)

I am exhausted! I judged almost all the rounds Sat and Sunday, except 3. Which is not a lot. I guess it's true that if you are an available judge, they will work you to the bone

The tournament was large, a good one for our team to go to :) Historically this swing has been good! And again it was.

I had some frustrations with team members from a certain school from North Texas.....grr. Let's just say that they really have no clue of what forenics manners are. Or normal life manners either!

The best part was parli. 2 of our teams advanced to semi-finals. My wonderful husband was a part of one of our advacing parli teams :) AND this was his SECOND debate tournament ever! He and his partner then tied for 3rd and he was 6th place speaker overall :) Our other team advanced to the final round and slapped the competition a fierce one! Go Luke and Steve!!!!

So this weekend brings yet another tournament....no rest for the forenicators! I'm actually stepping out of my usual judging for IEs and will be over at the debate tournament judging. Dr. D really wants me to be in the parli judging pool so I guess this is a good experience. Phil, of course, is doing parli. He likes it better than extemp (don't blame him)

Just wanted to update....I've been living in the world of forenics and apologize if you are not familar with the terms/events!

My name is Jen and I'm a speech addict. [laughs] Heh...yeah.

Anyway, Jill encouraged me to join, so I did. ^^ I was in speech in High School for all four years. I've got one year of Serious Prose, one year of Dramatic Duo, and two years of Creative Expression under my belt. Um...made it to State my senior year of HS. Didn't make it to finals but finished like 15th or whatever. Something like that.

Uh...there's nothing like Speech at my school, but I'm in the anime club...

So...uh...yeah...

Hi! ^__^

OMAHA RULES!!!!! (well ok forensics in omaha rules..lol) [12 Oct 2002|05:55pm]

So, here I sit on the campus of Creighton University at a rather funky little device known as a surftable...its definitely very interesting..hehe. So, I am completely done for at least the first half of the Nebraska double up..but thats alright. As the saying goes, "there's always tomorrow"..:) (in this case literally!)

I've felt kinda lazy this weekend, being im only doing one event...but thats alright, its still early and my number of events will grow rapidly!!!! My first DI round of the day definitely didnt go as well as I would have liked..but what can ya do. Second round definitely went a lot better though :)

One thing I have learned is that it isnt neccessarily the competition itself that makes forensics fun...its definitely enhanced by the relationships you have with your fellow teammates. I've said this numerous times before to various fellow teammates, but my team is truly like my second family. I feel like I can totally be myself around them without having them look down on me. Take for example, our van ride down here to Omaha. We were listening to various 80's songs and my teammate Janell and I just started making up the most ridiculous dances..and while most people would look down on me and think I was just being an idiot, she actually joined me in it!! Its the memories I've created with this team thaty will last much longer than the trophies and the awards.

So, in essence,I've learned this weekend that you can gain so much more out of forensics tha just improved speaking skills..you can learn valuable lessons and develop relationships that will last a lifetime.

Now, this isnt to say I wouldnt like to do well this weekend..winning is always fun..but I guess I am learning there are things more important than it...but I still wouldnt mind doing well tomorrow...here's hopin..*grins*

SPEAK NOW!!!!
