I haven't been able to track down Bennett4Prez to finalize plans for our Great Debates forum, and don't want to lose any more of the offseason if we can help it. So, for now, I want to re-introduce the Great Debates in the style originally proposed by B4P a year ago. His inspiration for the forum was from Around the Horn, on ESPN.
Ultimately, we'll have set debators each week, with a winner being crowned via cafe vote by the end of each week. The winners will get together for a championship debate each month. I have some cafe artists working on a championship banner at this time.
So, we need cafe members who are willing to commit to debating on a rotating schedule. I hope to get a minimum of eight (two per week), with a maximum of 16 (four per week). You would debate one week and then not again until your group comes again (around three to four weeks later). The winner each week will converge in the month's championship debate.
So, let me know if you are interested in being a regular debator at the Great Debates. Just PM me or reply here.
Also, sorry for the double post (General Talk and Great Debates forum), but with this, I wanted to reach as many cafe members as possible.
