The Weekly Weasel — Week of April 7

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Youth Is Served
The club’s Old Guard is not quite ready to fade away, but the Young Guns claimed four of the top seven spots in last weekend’s CODCon Open, including the championship. Kudos to John Gramila who fell just short of a championship at Weasel Moot in 2011. This time, he was on the right side of another close finish. Check out our CODCon coverage.

A Fool and His Dots…
We need two more players for next week’s Bar Room Brawl game at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square. The game is set for April 16, beginning at 6:30 until no later than 11.

Weasel Moot in the Wings
It’s time to turn our attention to Weasel Moot, which this year will be July 26-27 at the Hampton Inn and Suites downtown. It’s a great location, and it should be a fun event. You can find all the info you need on the website, but briefly, it will be a three-round tournament with the best two rounds counting for score. We’ll have two rounds on Saturday and one on Sunday. On Friday, we plan to organize a social event — perhaps an outing to the Blue Frog’s Local 22 karaoke bar, which is right by the Hampton Inn.

Our room rate at the Hampton Inn is only good until April 28, so reserve your room soon. Check out the site and go ahead and preregister. You’ll save $5. Defending champ Chris Martin has already preregistered. Thanks, Chris, and welcome back!

Upcoming Games

 

  • April 16 at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, starting at 6:30 p.m. until no later than 11. Have five.

Sign up for games here, on Meetup, or by emailing your faithful War Weasel (which is now Dan Burgess, danburgess67@gmail.com).

Important Dates

  • July 26-27: Weasel Moot VIII at the Hampton Inn and Suites downtown.

Dues
Dues are due. Check out the Prime’s message, then use the convenient PayPal link to pay your 2014 dues. We’re once again charging $25, $10 if you’re a student. Eighteen people have paid up already, including four at CODCon. Thanks! Remember, your dues pay for our website, the Meetup site, our annual club awards, and the awards for both the Royale and the Brawl, among other things.

That’s all for this week.
