It’s been a while Since Banglagym has had any event, and a lot of you have been inquiring about when will we have our next one. Well, here’s the good news. We’ll have our next “Banglagym sporting event” next year (2018) starting on the 15th of September and continuing for several weeks – same as it’s always been. Another good news is that we’ll try to introduce, by popular demand, two new games – Soccer and Cricket. We’d like to include our college kids, so the timing will not be the same as the regular events. Please keep an eye by visiting our website for updates on when, where and how (our web is still under development)
Here’s a Very Important New Announcement:
We, here in Banglagym, not only help you exercise your body, we’ll try to do that with your minds too.
So, starting on Saturday, March 17th, 2018 and continuing on Saturdays thereafter, depending on number of people sign-ups, we’ll have Straight Debate, Team Policy Debate, Impromptu and may be few other intellectual speech types of competition, if possible. We’ll have it in few different ways (Senior and Junior division as well as in English and in Bangla).
How are they defined? you may ask. Well, here they are:
- Straight Debate: Topics will be given ahead of time to debate – for and against the topic.
- Team Policy Debate: Two person team, each team comes up with a policy to make life better here in USA and argues for it, and the other team argues against it and then there is cross examination and rebuttal.
- Impromptu: a public speaking event where participants have few minutes to select a topic, brainstorm their ideas, outline the speech, and finally, deliver the speech.
There are lots of ways you can shape up a debates, but, for now, we’ll stick to these few and see how they all plays out, and shape any farther future event accordingly.
Would you be Interested? Please let us know by return mail.
Please keep an eye for our follow-up emails for more info.
Even if you do not participate, please feel free to send us topics for debate.
Also, we’re working on having a Science Exhibition towards end of May 2018 (A science Exhibition doesn’t mean Electrical or Mechanical device only; How a bill gets pass thru Congress is science too). Please visit our web at the end of this month for more info.
Please shoot us an email with any question or inquiry, and please forward this email or send us email address to anyone who you may think would be interested.
As usual, spread the words please.
If you don’t try, you’ll never know. You could surprise yourself!
