What night are you thinking about doing them? What is the structure for a live debate?

Cool, we were suppose to have had a debate a while back, but it didn't go through based on semantics.

Really any night, so long as it's late enough. The format would be LD format. If you're interested enough, I can explain it more to you, but here is how the times would work:

6 - Aff Constructive
3 - Neg CX
7 - Neg Constructive/Neg 1st Rebuttal
3 - Aff CX
4 - Aff 1st Rebuttal
6 - Neg 2nd Rebuttal
3 - Aff 2nd Rebuttal

Each side has 4 minutes of prep that they can use.

Cool. Ideally, I would like to do a full LD format, which involves some formatting stuff that is unique to the event. I can go over that via PM with you if you want.

If you don't feel comfortable, we can just do it without the formatting.
