History of This Resolution

This sourcebook was provided in print edition for the 2012-2013 NCFCA resolution listed above, the resolution debated for the 2013 NCFCA National Tournament at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Monument Publishing provided a summer print copy with 13 cases as well as a Midseason Supplement, all available in this download. Monument Publishing ran a Nationals Intensive Training Camp (NITC) in Tulsa in June 2013. This group of NCFCA debaters gathered across the street from Oral Roberts University. They prepared under coaches Travis Herche, Vance Trefethen and Chris Jeub for the weekend to prepare for their week of competition. Several awards were taken home as a result of their preparation.
