    Category Rachel McNair Kayla Chaffey
    Use of evidence: 2.6 2.1
    Delivery skill: 2.3 2.6
    Coherence of arguments: 2.1 2.9
    Responsiveness to opponent: 3.6 4.6
    Identification of key points: 3.4 4.1
    Comments: You need to answer all arguments that contain offense even if you think they are small compared to other issues in the round. It was difficult to hear you in the second negative speech when you were in the car. Next time it might be better to choose a different setting.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Kayla Chaffey

    Reason for Decision:

    I voted on the community service disadvantage that was conceded through out the debate by the proposition. The opposition says that the community service model that the proposition as provided as an alternative is bad and ineffective, which is never responded to. Also, I get a more warranted out explanation on the method of the counterplan than I do from the proposition about the implementation of the plan.

    Thanks again for judging and participating. Also sorry about the car setting I had a soccer tournament and had no other time. - Kayla Chaffey on April 20, 2015 at 05:05PM EST
