Tilbury House at Vienna EUDC 2015

This year’s European Universities Debating Championship (EUDC/Euros) took place 2-8 August and were hosted by Debattierklub Wien in the lovely Austrian capital. Euros are the second-biggest debating tournament (next to Worlds) with over 600 participants and Tilbury House sent an enormous delegation accordingly. With six teams and three judges our society was able to even slightly increase the numbers from last year. During nine rounds our members debated motions such as „This House believes that the European Union should lift its arms embargo on China“ or „This House believes that it is legitimate for individuals to punish people they deem to have committed online harassment by revealing their identity online“. Although none of our teams could break, Tilbury A (Ruben Dillmann & Linda Nolden) scored 14 points and Ruben was Tilbury’s best speaker at the tournament, being 60th out of 228 ESL-speakers with 674 speaker points. Tilbury B (Artem Korchemsky & Leo Mittag) did very well! They were among the top third of ESL-teams at Vienna EUDC. They had 14 points and therefore missed the break only by 1 point! Congratulations also to Tilbury C (Helena Hecke & Joachim Wend). Last but not least a big „Thank you“ to our three judges Sevilay Özcay, Bozhidar Kamburov, and Caroline Baum.
All Tilburies had a lot of fun at the various socials, met an amazing cast of new people from around the world and also learnt a lot.
