Hello friends

Hello, since noone has done this yet, I think I will take the liberty of doing so.

First off I would like to thank Mr. David Willams for setting this up, it is a great idea, and how you found this website, I don't know.  

Can young adult literature compete successfully in rounds against adult themed stories (even to Nationals)?

Poker Face

We've all been there.  That moment of OH!  No, not bad speech attire.  Sorry my jacket is in the cleaners.  But total loss of what's my line?  What you just saw was part one of what not to do.  Part two would be vomiting and running away.  No, what you should do in a mishap like that is to be like Lady Gaga...where plastic and lobster headdresses?...and wear y

Should the NDT still make use of First Round At-Large Bids OR should all competitors compete at district qualifiers?

How has speech helped you in real life?

It might just be an extracurricular, but speech can alter your life. How has it influenced yours? And I don't mean like you had to miss a birthday party because of a tourney. Any real changes and impacts.

Welcome

Hey kids,

Feel free to use this website to supplement the google group and cross-x.com - this might be a particularly valuable resource as you improve your individual event skills.

While encouraged, you are not obligated to participate should you decide not to.

Thanks Guys!

Thanks to all of you for joining the team! I definitely appreciate it and so does the future of our team's page.

Out of curiosity, have any of you kept-up with speech-like activities when you graduated? I got a theatre minor...which is close but not really, haha.

Traditions

12

I have not been back to VJA to visit since I graduated in '05. And loads have changed. For instance, the team sponsor has changed. I never thought Ms. Howley would leave that title!

But what I want to know is if a certain team tradition has changed as well. Back in the day, we used to pass our time at tourneys playing Egyptian Rat-Screw. We were boisterous, passionate, and the team that looked like we were having the most fun. We took this game serious. Egyptian Rat-Screw was the tourney within the tourney.

I hope with all my being that this tradition is still thriving.

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome! I'm Lisa Schemensky. I used to be a team captain my junior and senior years of high school ('04-'05) and spent most of my speech career competing in Prose and HDA.

As most of you might have noticed, The Forensics Community is a whole speech universe trapped on the internet. Tricks, tips, and general hilarity can be found everywhere on the site. However, this space is designed for YOU and YOUR TEAM. Any team news, chatter, updates, gossip, helpful hints, and shout-outs can be posted on this site to keep not only the present team connected but to inform and unite past members as well.

Further, team accomplishments--ranging from state success to victory at weekly tournaments--can be listed as a show of pride for your team. Be proud! VJA dominated in the 80s and continues to be a strong presence in the speech community.

So sign in a get posting!
