The Weekly Weasel — Week of June 17

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

It’s Time to Moot
The countdown is just about over. Our seventh annual Weasel Moot tournament tips off Saturday morning at 9:45 a.m. Registration for the first round is from 9 to 9:30.

This year’s event will be held at the Holiday Inn in Willowbrook, 7800 S. Kingery Highway. Round 2 will be Saturday evening, starting at 6 p.m., with registration from 5:15 to 5:45. The tournament will wrap up with the third and final round on Sunday, beginning at 9:45 a.m. and ending sometime between 3 and 5 p.m. A short awards ceremony will follow. Registration for the third round will be from 9 to 9:30 a.m.

 

 

The guest list stands at 36 players, with about half coming from out of town. We’re still hoping to add a few players to the list. If you can join us, please let me know.

You’ll find more information, including a copy of the rules, here. The guest list here. Check out Facebook for the latest chatter about the event. Preregistration is open till Thursday and will save you $5, $2 if you’re a student.

Friday Night What…
We’re working on our plan for Friday night’s social event, and we’d like to know whether you plan to join us so we can line up an appropriate venue. Possibilities include a trivia contest at a bar near the hotel and an evening of open gaming and drinks at one of our houses. If you’re going to join us, please let me know by tomorrow night.

Join us at the Ocho
The date has been set for our club’s happiest tradition. Season 8 will end Aug. 10 at Brown Manor in bucolic Wayne. The fun will start at 11 a.m. sharp and end no later than 10 p.m. In between, we’ll field at least three boards of Diplomacy, elect a couple of suckers to the Sneak, hand out the club awards, announce the Weasel Royale bids, and strike up the regimental choir. It’s going to be a great time, so make your plans to be there for Weasel Pyle 8.

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! Use the PayPal link online or give your dues to a Sneak member.
