When a member of the Sneak resigns, the Sneak selects replacements to serve out the remainder of the term. Christian’s spot would be up for election this August at Weasel Pyle. Peter’s position would not be up again until 2012. The Sneak has selected Pete McNamara (P-Mac) to fill Peter Yeargin’s remaining term. P-Mac will be assuming the role of treasurer. Peter Yeargin has been appointed to Christian’s slot on the Sneak, meaning his position will be up for election in August. I would like to thank both Peter’s for stepping in to fill these holes.
In August, in addition to the position that was Christian’s and now will be Peter Yeargin’s on the Sneak, both myself and our founder and spiritual leader, Jim O’Kelley, will be up for re-election. If there is sufficient interest from members interested in running for a position, I will consider proposing expanding the Sneak to the mystical number of seven. This next term will be a critical one for the club as we prepare to host the World Dip Con in August 2012. In the coming weeks we will also be preparing our bid for the North American Dipcon to also be at Weasel Moot 2012. If you have any questions or interest in serving in a leadership role within the club, please let me know.
Speaking of Weasel Moot, we have had an overwhelming response already from travelers making the pilgrimage to Chicago. Hopefully we will be able to count Peter Yeargin and C-Mac in those numbers! More importantly, I hope that we can also showcase our local talent and demonstrate why we have the best Diplomacy club in the world.
