- Listening to:P:ano - T. Hatch Says "Round Ev'ry Corner"
I have returned from Queen's Chancellor's Cup feeling old. I realized that I am entering my forth year in CUSID, and am seen by some to be a "grizzled vet." I actually am the most experienced debater in MacDebate both CUSID-wise and total debating experience. This isn't a bad thing, the fact just struck me. It was a combination of looking back on all my Queen's debating memories, being in a car full of novices, talking to and helping lots of novices, realizing that the Molson Room is just a story for many people, seeing many High Schoolers I've coached/seen in the tournament, and generally the great respect I felt from those around me.
I spent the weekend judging and doing what I do best. Helping novice debaters improve themselves. Our debaters had a good weekend of fun and learning, and I got to see some OK rounds.
