The Weekly Weasel -- Week of Aug. 3

The Weekly Weasel

Here's the latest news from the Weasels.

Seeking Candidates for the Sneak
Election season is upon us, and mercifully, our cycle is less than two weeks long. We have three seats up for election this year -- the ones currently occupied by Nate Cockerill, Don Glass and me. Don and I will seek reelection; Nate no longer lives in the area and therefore is prohibited from running according to the club charter.

If you'd like to run, please email John Gramila at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 5 p.m. on Friday. You must be a paid-up member who lives in the area defined in the charter. Click here for more information.

Seeking candidates for the Sneak

Club News

Hear ye, hear ye! We will elect three members to the Sneak at the Weasel Pyle on August 15. The seats currently occupied by Nate Cockerill, Don Glass and me are up for election. Don and I plan to rerun; Nate no longer lives in the area and is therefore ineligible to run per the club's charter.

All paid-up members who live in the area defined by the charter are eligible to seek election. Self-nominations are now being accepted by Chief of Public Information John Gramila, our clerk of election. If you wish to run, please notify him by Friday at 5 p.m. You may email him at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Once we have our candidates, we will solicit votes via email. Paper ballots will also be available at the Pyle. All paid-up members may vote.


The Daily Double

WCW Club Season 2015 Games

Our club has held numerous multi-board sessions in our 10-year history, but prior to last Saturday, we had never fielded two boards in two different locations. The 14 players featured three first-time Weasels. Here's how the games went down.

Game No. 274
Hosting Game No. 274 at his home in Glenview, Matt Sundstrom cashed in on his half of the daily double, cruising to a monster board top. The game ended by draw vote in Spring 1908 in the following center counts:

Royale date set

Club News

Mark your calendars, Royale hopefuls this year and next: The 2015 Weasel Royale Championship and Undercard Game will be October 24 at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove. The fun will start at 11 a.m. with power selection for the Royale. The Undercard Game will begin immediately following the start of the Royale.

To check your current spot in the club standings, click here. Remember, only paid-up members are eligible to participate in the Royale. To see a current list of paid-up members, click here. Players have until the start of play at the Weasel Pyle on August 15 to pay their dues.

We will once again attempt to field an Undercard Game this year. Often in the past, the board-topper in the Undercard Game has gone on to qualify for the Royale, so if you fall short of this year's Royale, consider playing in the Undercard.


Brawl the marbles

Club News

Through Wednesday's action, we've now played 15 games in the Bar Room Brawl Series. Newcomer Ali Adib continues to lead the pack with 96.02 points. Matt Sundstrom continues to hound him. Matt has 84.39 points. Christian Kline is also in the mix with 81.33.

Rounding out the current top seven are Scott Soren, 70.24 points; Nathaniel Olson, 62.81 points; Jim O'Kelley, 52.85 points; and David St. John, 52.37 points. Note that Olson is moving to Indonesia, which likely knocks him out of contention. And the current player in eighth place, Charlie Sweet, lives in Milwaukee. The Brawl championship field could go nine or 10 places deep this year.

For the complete standings, click here. One final date in the series remains. It will be August 12 at the Red Lion, and it will be for all the marbles.

Our game with Andre

WCW Club Season 2015 Games

Ali Adib continues to be this season's greatest recruiting success story. He found us on the Chicago Game Lovers site back in September and joined us for the season opener. That was the first of his eight league games this season.

He's topped two of those boards and currently leads the Bar Room Brawl series. But more than that, he's brought new players into the fold. The latest of those is Andre Dankha.

A matter of time

WCW Club Season 2015 Games

This week's Red Wednesday at the Red Lion was one of those rare Dip and Drinks nights when we had exactly the right amount of players for the game. And once again, that wasn't the case the day of.

We were sitting on 10 early Wednesday morning, and I was trying hard to find two others so we could force two boards. One of them, Jason "The Dude" Raynovich, a Founding Weasel, showed up, but instead of 11, he turned out to be No. 7. Two players cancelled and two others didn't show, so for once, I didn't have to sit out. I actually got to play.

And wouldn't you know it, the Blackhawks were playing, too.
