Edinburgh No Notes/Yes Bullshit: 

March 23rd & 24th

Two comps, two days, as many ways to change the British Parliamentary format as we can possibly squeeze in to eight rounds! Edinburgh No-Notes will have no notes allowed during the round for speakers, while judges will take notes on an index card. The next day, Edinburgh Yes Bullshit will run through four variants on the BP style, including random phrases included in speeches; a reverse round that begins with an Oral Adjudication, proceeds to the Opposition Whip, and goes backwards through the debate; and a blank debate that is debated without a motion. The final round will also be a variant, but it'll be a surprise!!

Pre-reg coming soon!


Scottish Pre-EUDC  

July 26th-27th

This year, Edinburgh is hosting the in-person precursor to the European University Debating Championships, which will take place in Glasgow. Whether EUDC is your summer vacation or you've been grinding for a break, we're your last stop on the path to Euros!
