Capital’s Debate Team Needs Volunteers!

November 14th, 2014

Capital’s Debate team had a great start to the year at the Gig Harbor
tournament last weekend, earning lots of finalist awards and a first place
in Junior Public Forum debate. The team has grown considerably in the last
two years, to over 40 active competitors.

This creates a (good) problem: we need judges!  Tournaments require us to
bring one judge for every 3 debate teams, and for every 5 speech
competitors.  To keep the activity affordable for all students, Debate
relies on parents, community members, and college students. No experience
is necessary, as we provide training, and most events are fairly easy to
figure out.

Tournaments run on Friday afternoons/evenings and throughout the day on
Saturday.  Judges listen to debates or speech events, and then fill out a
ballot with useful comments and a “reason for decision.”  We try to “split
shifts” so no one has to work from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on a Saturday.  (No
one but the head coach, that is.) You can either ride up and back on the
bus, or take your own transportation.

Tournaments try to keep judges happy by providing breakfast snacks,
beverages, lunches, and dinners (soups, spaghetti, etc.), and of course,
nonstop coffee.

A few upcoming dates:

Tahoma, Nov. 21-22
Auburn Riverside, Dec. 12-13
University of Puget Sound, Jan. 9-10
Federal Way HS, Jan. 16-17

Every judge who’s ever volunteered for Capital has told me just how much
fun it is, and how amazing high school debaters can be.  If you’re
interested, or know anyone who is, please contact me by email or phone.

Thanks, and Go Cougs!

Capital Productions Proudly Presents: The Curious Savage

November 14th, 2014

The Curious Savage
By John Patrick

When Mrs. Savage (Chloe Smith) inherits her husband’s ten million dollars,
her greedy stepchildren have her admitted into a “sanatorium.”  However,
when they discover that she has hidden the millions, they are scrambling
to get their hands on the money.  In the meantime, Mrs. Savage is becoming
fond of her fellow residents and offering some valuable lessons to her new
friends.  This 1950’s comedy sheds a light on the power of kindness and
love in a greedy and dishonest world.

The show runs November 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22.  Each performance
starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the Performing Arts Auditorium at
Capital High School, 2707 Conger Avenue N.W., Olympia.  Tickets are $8 for
students and senior citizens and $10 for the general public.  Call the box

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
