Day 7 is really, really the last day of EUDC Manchester 2013. Of course the last rounds took place yesterday, but today is departure day for most of us. We had to leace our accomodation before 11 AM. Some of us had already left in order to catch their flight back to Amsterdam. Also, some Dutch people would stay for a few more days in the UK to visit some friends or to catch the cheapest flight they could find while booking.
This EUDC the Dutch delegation did amazingly well, with Groningen in the finals being the highlight of the tournament. The Groningen team did not even expect to break, but fortunately they debated to the last. The other breaking team, Roosevelt B, did very well in the quarters. And of course we may not forget our Dutch judges. Five of them broke to the quarters, one of them (Daan WElling) judged the (Open) Finals. The Dutch delegation was really big this EUDC and we hope you’ve all had an amazing tournament. See you next year in Zagreb!
