The Weekly Weasel — Week of Feb. 25

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Hopes, Dreams Go Sweepin’ down the Plains
When the wind swept down the plains of last week’s game at Guthrie’s Tavern in Wrigleyville, it carried the aspirations of native Oklahoman Sam Bassett and his fellow Westerners with it. Check out the game report to see what happened and which Season One vet returned to the table for only the second time in seven years.

Weasel Moot VII
The website is up for Weasel Moot VII. Check it out for the schedule and other information. The tournament will be June 22-23 at the Holiday Inn in the western suburb of Willowbrook.

CODCon Cometh
Our seventh annual CODCon Open Diplomacy tournament tips off at the College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn in less than eight weeks. Please make your plans to join us. The dates are April 20-21, and the format will be the same as in past years, with the exception that there will be a hard ending of midnight for play on Saturday. We’ll be making a change to the published start time for the Saturday evening round. Stay tuned for that.

Beware! March Madness is Coming
March Madness begins a week from Wednesday with a game at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square. That night is just the first of six opportunities to play Dip in March. We’ve scheduled bar games in Chicago and Skokie, and house games in Chicago, Des Plaines and Downers Grove. Check out the schedule, consult your calendar, and sign up.
