Grand Prix action heats up again next week at the venerable DixieCon in Chapel Hill, N.C. Peter Yeargin and I will be traveling there to represent the Weasels.
DixieCon has played host to four DipCons and two World DipCons. In recent years, it has been a major battleground in the Grand Prix. In each of the past four years, the DixieCon champion has won the Grand Prix.
Of course, the Grand Prix is only part of the draw for Peter and me. We're also going to renew acquaintances with the friends we've made on the circuit, to sample the Saturday night barbecue, and to hit several of Chapel Hill's finest drinking establishments.
If you're interested in Diplomacy travel, there are a couple of good options in June, both near and far.
Origins, host of last year's World DipCon, will be held (I think) June 24 to 26 in Columbus, Ohio. It's the second leg of this year's Central Shuffle. Sam Bassett and Don Glass both have expressed interest in attending.
The Boston Massacre will be held June 26 to 27 at a game store in Cambridge. Post in the Comments section if you'd like more information. The New Englanders sent three representatives to last year's Weasel Moot. It would be nice to reciprocate by supporting the Massacre or Carnage (in November).
