The fisheries debate was actually rather interesting, though neither team seemed to actually know much about it.
I was sorta disappointed at this tournament, though. I'd had this vague idea that some of these amazing debaters would be like 7' tall with more muscle than Hercules... and I was, at first unconsciously, rather shocked that I couldn't tell them apart from other debaters. They were all rather normal looking.
But after we debated Heise/Pinero, and they looked... well, like standard debaters... I realized what I'd been doing and laughed at myself. XD
My guideline is, if you ever have to ask yourself if you're doing something creepy, you probably are. But then go ahead and do it anyway because being creepy is fun.
