The Weekly Weasel — Week of Sept. 3

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.
Don’t Let the Door Hit You in the Aash!
Congrats to Aash Anand on securing a job and entering the work force. Unfortunately, the recent University of Chicago graduate’s new gig will take him to Denver. He leaves next week.
Aash played 23 games with the Weasels over the past three seasons and competed in three of our tournaments. He placed second at the sixth annual CODCon Open last April, and in August, he became the first Indian national to compete in a world championship while finishing a club-high ninth at WDC.
Best wishes, Buddy. We expect to see you on the tournament circuit and hope that you’ll make Weasel Moot a regular stop.

Need Two for Next Week’s Game
We’re stuck on five players for next week’s game at Guthrie’s Tavern. We’re playing in honor of Australian transplant Peter McNamara, a current resident of the Bay Area. He’ll be in town for work, and he specifically asked us to throw a bar game for him so he could see one of our successful Dip & Drinks events in action. He’s hoping to bring the model back to the Bay Area to help jump start that hobby, which has been sluggish at best since it hosted the 2010 DipCon. If you’re free next Thursday, Sept. 13, how about joining us for a game at Guthrie’s?
