Major Speech Meet Planned

speech

Jackson Hole High School’s Speech and Debate team is preparing for its annual invitational speech tournament early next month.  Typically, says team coach Mark Hauser, approximately 12 schools attend from throughout the state.  That, says Hauser, provides not only a wonderful opportunity for the students to compete against each other, but for the community to showcase itself to over 400 young people and their chaperones.  Hauser estimates the meet brings about $10,000 in business to the community.  With a competition of that size, the event has some 300 judging slots to fill.  Hauser says the event runs from 3:00 pm Friday, February 10th until 5:00 pm Saturday, February 11th.  The team will hold judges’ orientation sessions prior to the tournament on Thursday, February 2nd  and Tuesday, 7th  at the high school to provide general tournament information, judging rules, explanations of events and presentations by team members.  Hauser says childcare is also available for the convenience of the volunteers.  Hauser urges those interested to contact him at 733-8349.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
