The Weekly Weasel — Week of April 28

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Three Months ’til Weasel Moot
Weasel Moot tips off in just about three months. Make your plans to join us July 26-27 at the Hampton Inn and Suites, 33 W Illinois St in the heart of Chicago’s bustling River North neighborhood. Our room block for the event expired on Monday, but if you act quickly, you may still be able to get the discounted rate. Call 312-832-0330 to reserve your room. Try mentioning Weasel Moot 2014 for the discounted room rate of $189 per night. We’ve got some other housing options listed on the website, including Airbnb, so check it out.

Two rounds on Saturday, July 26, one on Sunday the 27th. We’re planning an outing for Friday night the 25th, possibly to the Blue Frog’s Local 22 karaoke bar, which is right by the Hampton Inn. Should be a fun time.

Check out the site and go ahead and preregister. You’ll save $5.

It’s Cinco Somewhere
We have seven for Saturday’s 3 p.m. game at Matt Sundstrom’s home in Glenview, but we could use a standby or two.  One of the players may have to drop out to attend a funeral for a family friend, so if you’re willing to help us out by standing by, please speak up. We should know in a day or two whether the funeral will conflict with the game.

Upcoming Games


  • May 3 at Matt Sundstrom’s home in Glenview, starting at 3 p.m. Have seven. Could use standbys.

Sign up for games here, on Meetup, or by emailing your faithful War Weasel (which is now Dan Burgess,

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. Twenty people have paid up already.

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.
