The Weekly Weasel — Week of Dec. 17

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels on this 200th Game Eve.
 
Weasels Set to Play Bicentennial Game
We’re all set for tomorrow’s big 200th game celebration at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square. We currently have eight players signed up. If we can recruit six more between now and then, we’ll also play our 201st game.
 
It should be a fun night. Our War Weasel, Beefy Nate Cockerill, even is suggesting that we mark the occasion with a fish-and-chips eating contest. I think I’ll stick to supply centers.
 
Make your plans to join us tomorrow night! The fun starts at 6:30.
 
Play Your Way into Ted’s Next Memoir
Our resident author Ted McClelland will host his annual game on Feb. 2, beginning at 11 a.m., in his spacious Rogers Park apartment.
 
I’m hoping to get Ted’s Horseplayers: Life at the Track for Christmas. My mom does a book grab bag every year, and I’ve asked her to tie this book to the other end of my string. My fingers are crossed.
 
Perhaps Ted one day will write a book titled Dipplayers about his experiences with the Weasels. Maybe you can even play your way into it!
 
Upcoming Games
  • Dec. 18 at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, beginning at 6:30 p.m until no later than 11. Have seven for our 200th game. Need six more for No. 201!
