The Weekly Weasel — Week of June 3

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Brownstones and Glass Houses
Eric Brown had the weekend pass, but it was Don Glass who kicked ass in Game No. 214, which was played last Saturday at Dan Burgess’ home in Downers Grove. Check out the game summary.

Exceptions Prove the Rule
Our league typically is silent during tournament months. Although Weasel Moot is June 22-23, we made an exception on Saturday to accommodate Eric. And now we’re about to make another one.

Aash Anand will be in town this weekend, and he’d like to play Dip with us. He can play either Saturday or Sunday. Who’s up for a game? I could host on Sunday, if necessary. For a Saturday game, we’d need someone else to step up. If you’re interested in playing and/or hosting, please speak up. I’ll post the game on Meetup and the website once we know which day we’ll be playing. If you can host on Saturday, please let me know by tomorrow night.

Look Who’s Mooting
Weasel Moot is less than three weeks away, and the guest list is shaping up nicely. We’re now working on our fifth board. Take a look.

The Moot will be June 22-23 at the Holiday Inn in west suburban Willowbrook. Preregistration will save you $5, $2 if you’re a student. You can preregister through PayPal via a link here. You’ll also find more information there, and general kibitzing on Facebook.

Dues Are Due
Your 2013 membership dues are now due. Once again, we’re charging $25 for the calendar year, $10 for students. Paid-up members receive a $5 discount at Weasel Moot, get first crack at all our game openings, and are eligible for our annual Weasels club awards and to compete in the Weasel Royale club championship game. Your dues help pay for our annual club awards, the Meetup site, our website, and other club activities. Help us out by paying your dues today. Twenty-three Weasels have paid up so far!
