facts about us

#Season 14

Our Diplomacy league is the most active in North America. We average more than two league games per month in addition to Tournament play. We score all of our games using the Sum of Squares scoring system, and each player's best three scores count toward the season standings. We are known for our fierce competition, strong traditions, upstanding character and trustworthiness, and the propensity for Turkey to open to Armenia.

As part of my effort to step back a bit from organizing, I'll be handing over my Whip duties to Brian Shelden, but I still have some Whipping left in me. Last night was pretty productive. I picked up Amanda and three pretty solid maybes in Barry Preece, John Ritz and David St. John.

On the downside, these guys are all out: Kevin O'Kelly, Pete McNamara, Mike Morrison, Geoff Serednesky, Ian Trotta and Goz.

I also reached out to, and am waiting to hear from, Ali Adib, Ben DiPaola, Brad Harrington, Chris Cantine, Christian Kline, David Spanos, John Gramila, Josh Heffernan, Nick Rohn, Paul Pignotti, Peter Lokken,Sam Bassett and Tony Prokes.
