Summer is Coming!

Summer is Coming

It is with a great sadness that we say goodbye to our regularly scheduled programming for 2014. We had an excellent turnout for our final training session of the year, and the video from that session (and all the remaining ones from this year) will be online shortly (and just in time for procrastinating from your exams).

But, as it does every year, summer is coming, and with it Australia’s exceptional debating calendar. There are two excellent Minis in Melbourne and Sydney for everyone to attend, before we say farewell to our Worlds teams at the annual sendoff debate (and obsessively track their progress over the Christmas break – livestream and Twitter updates will be available). Details of the latter will be online soon; keep your eyes peeled for updates on our Facebook Page or even our Facebook Group, Twitter Feed, or Google+ page. Don’t forget our YouTube Channel and Ustream account, both of which will be updated very frequently over the summer.

A big thank you to the 2014 executive, our President Sam Whitney, all those graduating this year and everyone who came along to MAD this year, old and new. We hope to see you all next year.

A New Hope

As well as being a seminal piece of cinema from the late 70s, ‘A New Hope’ adeptly describes our move to a new Content Management System: WordPress. To stay abreast of the best the internet has to offer, we’re taking advantage of the superior flexibility and reliability offered by WordPress, and are completely transitioning all of our old server’s content onto this new platform.

As of this post, all site content has been moved and all links to the old website are now propagating as redirects to this one. However, as this is a major transition, there are undoubtedly going to be some gremlins. If you spot any links that no longer work, content that links to the old website (easy to spot, as the Footer will not say ‘Proudly Powered by WordPress‘ at the bottom), or if you just have any suggestions in general, please don’t hestitate to send me an email at webmaster@monashdebaters.com.

“It’s a magical world, Hobbes ol’ buddy … Let’s go exploring.”
