Thropy is believed by many to be the single greatest tournament in the Debsoc calendar. It is a novice tournament, for teams of 3 novices debating in the Australs style, but with shorter speeches. Thropy is a North Island tournament and alternates between being held in Hamilton or Palmerston North. Thropy is famous not just for great debating, but also for loud road trips and nights full of fun. Typical then that the tournament got its name when the engraver mispelt the word “trophy” to create the McLeod Thropy. Whatever you do – don’t miss Thropy.
Thropy uses the Australs style but with 4-6 minute speeches and 2-3 minute replies.
