It’s the last day of August and that means the 2010-2011 season of RU Debate is almost upon us.

Given the great success of the team late last year, we are poised for possibly the best year in the team’s history this season. Returning debaters Dave Reiss, Kyle Bomeisl, and Chris Bergman all “broke” (advanced to the elimination rounds) at multiple tournaments last year, and many other returning members won novice (first-year) awards.

Returning members will have their first meeting tonight at 9:00 PM, while our first official meeting for all members with a demonstration round for new prospects will be in one week (9/7). The Johns Hopkins tournament opens the season the following weekend.

Keep checking back here for frequent updates of the team’s success throughout the year. If you’d like to join, please e-mail us at
