Hope you’ve all enjoyed the public holiday, and are keen for internals tomorrow at 6pm! Don’t forget that, as ever, internals are happening on Tuesday and Friday. We will be debating in regular teams this term – if you haven’t signed up for a team yet then let us know!
Another cool thing that’s happening are Australs trials. The Australasian Debating Championship (affectionately known as Australs) is happening on July 13th – 21st in Perth. Teams from universities all around Asia will be attending the week-long tournament. Australs is a high-quality and high-intensity competition – it is also a lot of fun! Registration is $770 plus the cost of flights to Perth (we are trying to get your flights to Perth subsidised though, but no guarantees at the moment).
We’ll be trialling teams on Sunday May 8th, but don’t worry if you can’t make this date because you can also trial by recording a debate on Saturday May 7th. You will need to do two debates to trial, so it is best if you are available for the whole day. There will be a sign-up form coming out soon!
ORDINARY GENERAL MEETING
Next Tuesday before internals (at 6pm) we will be holding our OGM. At the meeting we will be electing two first-year representatives and also a socials officer. These positions are great experience and a good chance to get an insight into the way the debating society is run, so come along to apply and vote!
See you soon,
