Team Policy Mid-Season Workshop (NCFCA)
When: Wednesday Jan. 30 7:30pm-9:00pm CT
Instructor: Eric Meinerding
Cost: $5 members/$20 non-members
Competition season is upon us! That crazy time of year where you forget what day of the week it is, whether or not pizza is an acceptable breakfast, and any sense of a routine. You may have weeks where you are gone for an entire weekend, get back Monday, and start another tournament Thursday or Friday. It’s busy, but it’s some of the most fun you’ll ever have. However, you are investing a considerable amount of time and money into these tournaments so making the most of your time is crucial!!
Join Eric on Jan. 30 where he will hold a mid-season workshop on how to survive and thrive during your tournament season as a team policy debater. Wondering if you should write an extra brief, change your aff case between tournaments, memorize your 1AC, or just do practice debates until you’re blue in the face? Well, as someone who once did four tournaments in two weeks, traveling over 2,000 miles in the process, Eric Meinerding knows or a thing or two about making the most of this hectic time, and will help navigate these questions during the workshop. Hope to see you all there!
