First debate tourney of the season

Strider and Pete spent the last few days in Richmond for the first speech and debate tournament this year.  And to the joy of everyone involved, Strider and his partner Elizabeth placed first!  Those two certainly love to argue -- and it paid off.  :)

The topic they've been researching this year is whether or not fast food is good for society.  During the weekend they got to argue both sides of this argument a few different times.  On the final night, the dinner provided for all the participants was.... from McDonalds.  Strider (wisely) chose not to eat it, and he and Pete stopped for something else on the way home.

  1. What a coincidence...Strider's debate partner is a student in my Literature class at the Homeschool Room! :-) She said she was going to a tournament in Richmond this weekend...and when I saw your post (on facebook, maybe) earlier, I figured they must know each other. But I didn't expect them to be partners!! That's great for them both!
