How did it get to be Wednesday? Oh, well, read on for the latest news from the Weasels.

That's What Brown Can Do for You
On a board bristling with Bull Weasels, Royale also-rans, and a brash new young gun, Founding Weasel Eric Brown showed what he can do for you, and to you, when he decides to play. Check out the game report from Game No. 262, played Friday at Matt Sundstrom's home in Glenview.

Get Your CODCon on!

There's a New Scourge in Town
It's a well known fact that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. And when the tree's laurels include the club's first Grand Slam and a signature opening, well, you can only hope that his daughters don't take to the game.

Game No. 261 was played Friday at Pete McNamara's home in Evanston. Check out whose scion whipped the field, sealed a nickname, and took over first place in the club standings for Season 10.

Brawl, Brittania!
Last week's Bar Room Brawl Championship Game started in low and then started to grow. By the time it was over, Chris Kelly's small British empire had grown three sizes that day. For the complete report, head over to the website.

Thirteen Stabbers Stabbing
The Red Lion was decked with boughs of holly and broken promises last week for our third Red Wednesday event. Fortunately, the partridge in a pear tree was followed by a couple of walk-ups, which allowed us to field a second board. Yay!

The event featured three more new faces, plus an old one in an unfamiliar beard (Aash Anand). Check out the summary.

Chasing the Second Board
Our third Red Wednesday at the Red Lion is this week, and once again, we're trying to run down a second board. We're currently sitting on eleven. One more, and we can make a go of it by tapping two to play on two boards. But three more would make life so much easier. And better. So, any takers? Why not join us for some Dip, drinks and holiday cheer this Wednesday at the Red Lion!

The Weekly Weasel -- Week of Dec. 1

We're back after a brief hiatus. For those who haven't heard, my nephew and Godson Cooper died early in the morning on November 23. Coop, 21, played Dip with us a couple of times in our first season and also played two rounds at our first CODCon. Shortly after that, he discovered soccer. And girls. I never did get him back to the table. Here's a link to a tribute video for him.

Anyway, read on for the latest news from the Weasels.

Black Jack Friday
Sundstrom was Sundstromed by a Sundstrom in last week's Black Friday game at his home in Glenview. Confused? Check out the game summary and reaction from the host.

Better Red than Dead
Last week's Red Wednesday at the Red Lion had a little bit of everything: Two more new faces, an old face that we don't see nearly enough, a visually impaired observer, a Western with an all-little-person cast, three Weasel cameos, and a thrilling final year that sort of played out like a classic scene from the movie 10. Don't believe me? Check out the game summary. We've also updated the Bar Room Brawl standings.

Doubling down on Red Wednesday
Since last week's issue, we gained two players for the Red Wednesday event but also lost two, so we're still stuck on 11. That number includes three more new faces, plus three others who joined our ranks this season. The Wednesday night bar games continue to attract new players. If you're reading this and are free Wednesday night, we'd love to have you join us. Two boards are better than one.

A Bull Weasel Rises
That roar you heard at around 8 p.m. Saturday night came from Matt Sundstrom. It was equal parts joy and relief. In his sixth attempt, Matt finally won the Weasel Royale, and in so doing, he clubbed the club's first grand slam. Matt won CODCon and Weasel Moot in 2009 (and CODCon again in 2012), the league in 2010, and now the Royale, ending a four-year quest to complete the grand slam.

The 2014 club championship game was interesting, fun, taut, fluid. Pick your adjective. It had a little bit of everything. Check out the recap and (we hope eventually) player reaction. I plan to share my thoughts this evening.

Undercard Underwater?
We're trying to field an Undercard game at this Saturday's Weasel Royale for the sixth straight year, but the tradition -- which has added so much to the Royale event -- is in jeopardy. We currently have five players signed up, but we may have to tap one for the Royale. More on that in a moment.

Finding three more players -- or even two, for that matter -- at this stage is a tall order. Especially given that one of our top two standbys, Mike Morrison, has already been elevated to the Royale, and the other, Ben DiPaola, has been summoned as well.
