December 12, 2012

One week left until the Vienna Winter Worlds Prep with WUDC Champion Michael Shapira kicks off on the 21st of December.

VWWP includes two workshops and at least 6 rounds of debating. Given that the number of teams will be either 8 or 12, there will be no separate final, instead all teams shall enjoy the pleasure of  6 rounds of BP debating with 7 min speeches. Motions will be set by CA Michael Shapira, who will be assisted by the finest domestic adj-core Vienna has to offer.

Additionally, as this is Christmas time and we’re in Vienna, we planned some Punsch socials and Christmas market flair.

The Friday Social will be at Mariahilferstraße. There will be Punsch and food available. However subsistence is not included in the reg fee.

Saturday venue, again, is the WU Wien. The social will be at a place nearby. There is plenty of food around the Uni so it should not be too difficult to find something during the lunch break.

Looking forward to having you all here!
