Cock and Kelly take the openers

Written by

Season Eight opened Thursday night with two boards at Guthrie's Tavern. Thirteen players turned out for Opening Night, including four new Weasels and guest of honor Peter McNamara, the Australian national who was visiting from the Bay Area.

Nate Cockerill picked up right where he left off last season. The Season Seven leader with five board tops picked up another one in Game No. 195, edging McNamara 12 to 10. Chris Kelly, meanwhile, took the board top in Game No. 194, his second top with the Weasels in six games played.

Fourth annual Undercard game at the Weasel Royale

Written by

Join us for the fourth annual Undercard game at the Weasel Royale club championship. The Undercard will take place in the basement at Dan Burgess' home in Downers Grove, scant steps from his draft beer system, or on his deck if the weather cooperates. It will count as a regular Season Eight league game.

Each of the past three years, the Undercard board-topper went on to qualify for the next year's Royale. Pete McNamara topped in 2009. While he was playing in the 2010 Royale, John Gramila topped the Undercard. Last year, Ben DiPaola continued the tradition, topping the Undercard while Gramila played in the Royale. DiPaola will be the sixth seed in this year's Royale.

Jeremiah was a board topper!

Written by

We fought a lovely little war at the Red Lion last night. Our club's 166th game and 17th of the season ended by draw vote during the Fall 1905 turn with all seven players still on the board.

Jeremiah Peterson shocked us all by volunteering to play earlier in the day. Typically his arm needs twisting. He surprised us again by proposing a draw with his France topping the board at seven centers and sitting in or positioned to acquire three more. He figured that was as good as it was going to get for his France. Meanwhile, it appeared that winter was coming with Russia poised for expansion. The draw passed, so the game rolled back to the 1904 center counts, which were:

The Postman always tops twice

Written by

Last night at Emmett's Alehouse in Downers Grove, Todd "The Mailman" Woodman delivered his second board top ever. His Turkey gobbled everything in sight, finishing with 11 centers. Top Turkey honors are his for the time being. Apparently 11 is a magic number for Woodman: The game was his 11th league contest with the club.

Game No. 165 ended by draw vote in Spring 1906 in the following center counts.
