On Pearl Harbor Day, with Tora, Tora, Tora playing in the background, 12 of us gathered at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square to bomb the crap out of each other and, in some cases, ourselves. On Tuesday night, we had 15 for this Dip & Drinks event, but three dropped on the day of. The 12 fit sort of neatly into a big board for vets of varying seasoning and a small board for newish and rusty players, with Peter Lokken and me pulling double duty.
The big board played into Fall 1906 before calling the game at the 11 p.m. time limit. The center counts rolled back to 1905, which were:
Game No. 162
Austria (Jim O'Kelley): 1; 0.446 points.
England (Peter Lokken): 0; 0.000 points.
France (Nate Cockerill): 8; 28.571 points.
Germany (Ben DiPaola): 7; 21.875 points.
Italy (Mike Morrison): 6; 16.071 points.
Russia (Ulysses Peterson): 5; 11.161 points.
Turkey (Aaron Bernhardt): 7; 21.875 points.
The small board got through 1906, finishing in the following center counts:
Game No. 163
Austria (Simon Marcelis): 9; 24.398 points.
England (Jim O'Kelley): 11; 36.446 points.
France (Marcus Lundgren): 0; 0.000 points.
Germany (Ryan Whalen): 11; 36.446 points.
Italy (Kenny Skaggs): 0; 0.000 points.
Russia (Carlos Otero): 0; 0.000 points.
Turkey (Peter Lokken): 3; 2.711 points.
The supply center charts are here.
Another good night for the Weasels, with two more new recruits. Ryan is another player connected to Ben and Peter, while Kenny found us on Facebook. Hopefully, they'll both be back.
And you'll recall that at our season-opening game at the Red Lion, we learned about a regular who was trying to recruit players for a game. We met him and a friend last night. His name is Glenn Wilson, and I think we can look forward to them joining our group in the near future.
Despite the incessant, often misguided sneak attacks, our club continues to thrive. Torra, Torra, Torra that.
