The year is 2020 A.D. The public life is entirely occupied by the corona crisis. Well, not entirely... A strong debate club still holds out against the hardships and carries on its weekly training sessions online on Mixidea! This way we can not only keep our rhetorical skills sharp, but also train together with debaters from the whole worls. The competitive debating is also going forward. On the first weekend of April a few Munich teams took part in the first European online debating tournament: Berlin Online. And on the 25-25 of April we organize an own online tournament together with three other clubs (Prague, Cracow and Aalto): Central European Cyberspace Open. We are excited for this and thank everyone who is going to take part in it!
This weekend our debate club organized the beginners' tournament "Transrapid" in the KHG for the fifth time in a row. With six filled rooms (24 teams) it was the biggest beginners' tournament of our club so far. Debaters from Mainz, Halle, Zurich, Bamberg/Coburg, Jena, Vienna, Bayreuth, Erlangen/Nuremberg as well as numerous Munich teams took part.
After four preliminary rounds Fabiana and Maximilian from Coburg/Bamberg won the final. We are very happy that three Munich teams made it to the final and that Michael from Munich was the best speaker of the tournament . Congratulations to all of you!
Organizers: Anna Pfister/Kenno Boinowitz

Last weekend our beginners were able to prove their newly acquired knowledge and skills. The Viennese debate club hosted an English beginner's tournament: "Vienna Freshers 2019". Two of our teams (Niklas and Adrian / Altan and Arin) as well as our judge Yimin broke to the finals. But that is still not all: Altan and Arin also won the final, congrats!
