Our tournament is the first time that we as an institution, rather than merely as individuals, are attempting to do that bare-bones-plans-expected-to-survive-health-law-webmd. In our rounds, and hanging out with our friends, we try to give something back, to let you all know how much we appreciate being a part of your world. I sincerely bare-bones-plans-expected-to-survive-health-law-webmd believe that we owe y'all something. we also owe it to every DOF who's hosted a tournament where we've had a chance to compete and enjoy, and to every debater we've had the fortune to talk across from.
And we don't just owe that debt to the few very special people who have pulled for us and rooted for us against all kinds of odds. I remember the time we spent just kicking back bare-bones-plans-expected-to-survive-health-law-webmd with all of our friends, and how the story of our team is intimately tied with a much broader community, known to most of you as the West Coast Love. I remember back in the day, before the Africa topic, when we didn't have any money, and to get to the tournament campus from the hotel, we would all have to get to the lobby early and hitch-hike, and how whenever we could, we'd negotiate to stay at other people's houses, like the Hesters' place, or Trevor's and the Judge's places in Kentucky. We're hosting a tournament, bare-bones-plans-expected-to-survive-health-law-webmd and I would be ecstatic if people came to it.
