Speech and Debate Club in Warrenville

August 6th, 2012

Received via email:

On August 27 from 7-9 p.m. there will be an information/registration meeting for all those interested in the Ignite NCFCA speech and debate club.  Prospective students ages 12-18 and their parents and siblings are welcome.

The meeting will take place at the same facility at which we’ll be meeting regularly—Grace Church of DuPage, located at 27W344 Galusha Ave., Warrenville, IL 60555.

Come see our students showcase excerpts from some of their speeches from last year’s competitive season and see a short explanation and example of team policy debate and Lincoln-Douglas debate.  Meet the board members and hear about our new coaches.  We’ll give you a brief description of what we expect from students and answer any questions you might have.

Registration forms will be available at the meeting.  Questions, please contact Jen Yonke at jen42@yonke.org.

Regular meetings will begin September 10th.  Extemporaneous speaking will meet between 4:15-5:00; speech will meet between 5:00-6:30; devotion and announcements at 6:30 after which speech students are free to leave or are welcome to remain for a potluck dinner until 7:15; debate will meet between 7:15-9:15.
