There's NO speech homework for this week! Why? Because there's no speech. October 24 is the first date of our adjusted schedule, where debate meets for an extra hour, from 1 to 4, and extemp meets (for the first time!!!) from 4 to 5:30. In the meantime, though, definitely still be working on your drafts for your speeches, your Impromptu notebooks, and your Apol cards. We'll have our first speech coaching session on October 31, so be preparing something to present!

Register for Veritas Excelsior Round Robin:
This Sunday, October 20, is the last day to register at the $25 price for the Denton practice debate tournament. Then, until November 1, late registration is $30 a student. Since we now know TP partnerships (and honestly, you don't have an excuse for being late if you're an LDer), go ahead and sign up ASAP!
Save the Date: Our Speech Practice Tournament
The speech practice tournament our club is hosting this year is on December 7. A registration form will be coming soon. We'll be offering all ten speech events, so plan on having your speeches done by then so you can practice.
