Hi Everyone, Both newcomers and experienced debaters are welcome to join. We meet at a table in the Sony Public Atrium on Madison between 55th & 56th St. We'll have a sign displayed on the table so you can find us. Here's what you can expect: * We'll start out with introductions so we can learn a little about each other * A little ice breaking * Overview of how to debate * Overview of Topic * Choosing Debate format (team, free debate, round robin, etc) * Choosing sides (I encourage you to choose a side that you don't believe in to make it more fun, but your choice!) * Debate starts! - Each person speaks for a few minutes introducing their ideas and countering their rivals * Round 2 – We choose what to do next, either a debate new topic, or we swap sides to debate the same topic from the opposite point of view * Final Discussion - we'll talk about what we liked and didn't like in the debate, and have a chance to say anything we didn't bring up at the time, and have a general chat

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
