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.

DipCon 2011 Voting
 
Bids are in for the 2011 DipCon, and it's time to make your voice heard. To make things easy, just email your vote to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You have until June 13 2359ET to cast your vote. The only qualified bid is Carnage XIV [http://dipcon2011.nedip.org/]. Your voting options are:

If you attended any two (2) of these events, then your vote for DipCon 2011 counts. Please note in your vote which events you have attended.
 
DipCon Committee notes on Carnage: Carnage is a long-running and stable tournament site, with a good history and no issues with rule-sets or tournament structure.  It is also part of a larger gaming tournament.  The only area of concern to the Committee is that the event site is a hotel that commonly sells out well in advance of the event, and alternate hotels can be a significant distance away. To address this concern, the Carnage Diplomacy staff assures us that there are generally enough cancellations to allow late booking, and that they have a number of other strategies for guaranteeing space for travelers, including extra reserved rooms and/or a rental house within walking distance of the site.
 
Thank You,
DipCon Committee

Note that we had three events in the eligible period, so quite a few Weasels are eligible to vote. You should do so, even if only to vote present.

I will cast my vote for Carnage, which I attended in 2006, my Grand Prix year. It's not an easy venue to get to. Jeremiah and I flew into Manchester, N.H.; rented an SUV with Buffalo, Maletsky and Graham Woodring; and drove the two hours or so to Fairlee, Vt. But once we got there, we had an outstanding time. The venue is definitely worth the trek. If you go to Carnage for the 2011 DipCon, you'll have a great time.
