One last time in 2013, here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

The Year in Review
What’s New Year’s Eve Eve without a countdown? Relive five big moments from 2013.

Tony the Turkish Tiger
Tony Prokes made it two for two this season with his board top at Matt Sundstrom’s on Saturday. Game No. 231 also marked the Season Nine debuts of Royale participant Brad Harrington and former Bull Weasel Paul Pignotti, and the return to the table of a player who first played with the Weasels in Game No. 2 but hadn’t participated in a league game since March 2010. Check out the game summary.

Got Game?
We have several players who are interested in getting a game together this weekend. Either Friday or Saturday will work, but at the moment, we only have a host for Friday. If you’re up for a game, let us know soon so we can try to make it happen.

CODCon is Coming
