THE WEEKLY WEASEL ACCOMPLISHES NEW THINGS
But, like, for real though guys, the season is picking up and this might actually become weekly again.
BTOAB ESCAPES CARNAGE SHINING SILVER
A contingent of Weasels trekked out to Carnage for Dipcon, the American Diplomacy Championship. Bull Weasel and two-time defending Weasel of the Year Brandon “BTOAB” Fogel came home with the second place trophy, just behind champion Doug "Also the World Champ" Moore. This is a tremendous accomplishment as only one Weasel has ever won Dipcon.
As a new club policy, Weasels who podium at a Grand Prix event will get their own interview feature here on the Weekly Weasel. Keep an eye out for that, and say congrats to the BTOAB on a job well done!
GOAT CLIMBS HIGHER AS CLOCK STRIKES 13
We’ve had two games this month that both represent personal bests for the toppers. First, goat aficionado Jake Langenfeld broke baaaaad by dropping a 51-point Turkish effort. Then, Chris Kelly broke out with a 13 dot, 62-point Austrian assault. This puts Kelly and Langenfeld as the early front men for the 2018 season.
DECK THE HALLS WITH FLEETS IN HOLLAND
Two games coming up. First on Sunday the 3rd, former World Champ Chris “Dancing Queen” Martin will be joining us at Johnny G’s abode. Then on Saturday the 9th, Matt “Guitar” Sundstrom is hosting a house game. We also usually do a Christmas bonus bar game, which I’m sure will be put on the books for Thursday the 21st if I ask Santa real nicely. Sign up here.
Hit the jump for news on the Wise Old Weasel, scoring system changes, and a crucial change to the way the club asks for dues.
A MATCH MADE IN EDI
Shortly after reading the new WISE OLD WEASEL: ENGLAND, Prince Harry decided to get engaged. Read the WOW, folks. You’ll get better at dip and find the love of your life. That wraps up all 7 countries for the WOW. Look out for a new Wise Old Weasel series beginning in the next month.
ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND SCORE
We changed the scoring system slightly to disincentivize you cutthroat bastards from throwing games to keep your rival’s score down. Read all about it here.
PUPPY JOKES ON PAWS, PUN SHAMING IN
You all killed many puppies last season, and PAWS has asked us to find a different way of motivating you to pay your dues this year. So without further ado, here’s the Weekly Weasel’s sophomoric “pay your dues” joke of the week:
Unpaid members order steak well done. AND PUT KETCHUP ON IT.
Don’t be that guy. Pay your dues.
