[eDebate] [CEDA-L] Matt Grindy

What a sad morning.

What Tuna and Matt said.  Matt was a great inspiration.  

Bureaucratically, I assume the process would be an Amendment to the CEDA By-Laws or Constitution which could be voted on at CEDA Nats if it got done very soon.  Could someone in the know (Jeff?) please clarify?  

One suggestion:  I would hope that Dave Steinberg would have the honor of formally proposing that amendment.--Neil

  We've lost one of the nicest people in debate, hands down.  Any such award in his honor would be more than appropriate.
