Lewis & Clark Debate Tournament

Aurora, Tristan, Karen, Molly, Sasha, Mike, Jay, & Patrick
The James M. & Sharon E. Rupp Debate Society is competing at Lewis and Clark College this weekend in Portland, Oregon.  The team has a chance to visit downtown Portland last night where they were able to ride , to ride MAX, eat fantastic food at Mcmenamins, to visit the famous Powell's City of Books, and to stop by Voodoo Doughnuts.  After a good night's sleep, the debaters are competing in Extemporaneous Speaking, Impromptu Speaking, Informative Speaking, and Programmed Oral Interpretation today.  Tomorrow and Sunday, they will compete in NPDA debate and British Parliamentary Debate.  Good Luck Bengals!  GRRRRR.  #ISUDEBATE #RUPPDEBATE
