Who is going to make the decks for battle decks? I'll volunteer to make one.

Good Question Derik! Right now Amy Kearns and myself are putting together a deck or two each. If you could do this that would be a great help.

Each deck is going to be 10 slides and each presenter will have 10 seconds per slides for 100 seconds of pressure!

Anyone else willing to put together a battle deck, post here!

Any other criteria besides 10 slides? Should they have some kind of coherence or just be completely random/incoherent?

Battle Decks are being assembled. We still need:

1 or 2 competitors

3 or 4 judges. Judges will be given judging criterion when they arrive at camp that morning. It can't be a battle without a winner! (and yes, we have prizes).

Okay, now that the list of judges is filling up, I'm finally starting to get nervous. :)

We need at least one more brave soul to compete -- come on, you know you want to!

Annndd... we have prizes. Good prizes! This is getting funner by the minute. (yes, I know funner is not a word... or is it now. I think I heard that it was added to the dictionary but it still seems wrong).

If there is a deck left for me, I will certainly do it to fulfill my pledge. =D
