Team Awards

Remy took Don Alperstein and Woody Leonhard to the penitentiary to debate "Resolved: that marijuana should be legalized in the United States."

Don wrote on to say: Woody Leonard and I brought home several trophies that year, although I couldn't be specific as to what placements or tournament they represented. We also traveled the state to serve as judges for high school competitions.
