Post Mid-Semester Break

What a break it has been, especially with Easters and all that. Congratulations to all teams and adjudicators in this exciting tournament, especially:
Monash 7 (Beatrice Paull, Laurel Trinh, Prithi Rajiv – Octo Finals)
Molly Dale (DCA)
Andrew Belyea-Tate (Grand Final judge) and
Nikhil Puppala (Breaking judge)

However, everyone should be immensely proud of their efforts they have put in into debating. Looking retrospectively from the commencement of the tournament to the end, it is undeniable that there has been so much improvement and many friendships made in the progress. We hope that this sustains throughout the rest of the year!

Other important news to cover: SORENSEN REGISTRATIONS are still live! The internal tournament has been pushed back due to unforeseen circumstances.

Moreover, get excited for Regressive! On the 15th of April, we will be kicking off the debate right from the adjudication and desserts!
