Easters, more formally known as the Australian Intervarsity Debating Championships, will be the first major competition for 2014. Held in a different city every year, it attracts debaters from all over the nation for a week days of debating, and much fun! As a novice tournament, all teams can only have one experienced member at most. It is thus a great opportunity for new members to gain experience, but also for older members wanting to lead a team.
It is a great honour to host this competition at Monash this year. Let’s make the most of the home ground advantage!
When: 21st – 25th April, 2014
Where: Monash University Clayton Campus, Melbourne
Registration and Sponsorship: The cost of tournament is $360 which covers your accommodation, socials and most food and transport. The first 24 novices who sign up and are offered a debating or adjudicating spot will receive $100 sponsorship.
How to get involved: If you are a new member to the club, you are eligible to attend the Novice Selections Day, which will include selections for Easters teams.
