The Weekly Weasel — Week of April 22

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Man at Work
Like a boomerang, Australian Peter McNamara keeps coming back to Chicago. His third trip here in the past nine months was the charm, as this time, he left with the CODCon tournament championship. And a vegemite sandwich.

McNamara soloed in the first round as Austria and posted 15 centers as England in the time-limited third round to win the five-board tournament going away. Check out tournament director Dan Burgess’ report for the full results.

Weasel Moot VII
Okay, CODCon is in the books. It’s time to focus on Weasel Moot, which will be here in 60 days. The tournament will be June 22-23 at the Holiday Inn in the western suburb of Willowbrook. Preregistration is now open. You can preregister through PayPal via a link on the website. You’ll find more information here, and general kibitzing on Facebook.

Mayday! Mayday!
And how about a tune-up before Weasel Moot? We’re heading back to the Red Lion on May 1 for another evening of Dip & Drinks.
