Also note that this will be our first tournament will we will be attending that utilizes “tight -link” style of debate. This is what the rule difference means:
According to APDA:
“A tight link forces the Prime Minister to link to and argue a case that complies with a position prompted by the resolution. Examine the tight link resolution “This house would legalize freedom.” The Prime minister could link to a case about legalizing drugs, legalizing gay marriage or embargoing China until it granted freedom of the press. A link to the case “We should fix an explosive collar around every US citizen, so that we can terminate trouble makers” would be poor, because the fascist policy proposed above does not legalize freedom in any meaningful sense. Poor tight links can be a voting issue against the government.”
