Now that the federal election has passed, our members can once again fully devote themselves to debating! What better way to do this than going to the Australasian Intervarsity Debating Championships 2016, held at the University of Western Australia (which has kicked off today). Having already competed in numerous minis such as ADAM, our members are ready to show everyone what we’ve got!

With Semester 1 in the books, a semester filled with exciting socials, fantastic debating and all-around general merriment, MAD would like to thank everyone who has been involved this semester. The executive feels that this semester has seen a significant new member base take an active role in Monday night and Wednesday Night training sessions, as well as tournaments, and feel that this has been a great success for the Club!
Importantly, MAD has sent an amazing contingent to SolBridge Australs in Deajeon, South Korea, with debates starting on July 17th. The full list of partcipants is as follows:
Freya Rich, Rohan Waring (ind.), Vidya Datta, Hayley Sorel, Ovindu Rajasinghe, Sarah Christie
The Executive wishes them the best of luck for the tournament, and for those who would like to follow their progress throughout the tournament, results will be posted on the MAD twitter account.
Hope to see everyone in Semester 2!
