The Weekly Weasel — Week of May 5

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.

Let’s Play Dos
Seven of the club’s most interesting players gathered in Glenview last Saturday to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a game of Dip. Turns out the game wasn’t nearly as interesting as them, so they called a draw and started up another one. Check out the results from Games 244 and 245.

Dixie or Bust
Looks like Nate Cockerill and I will be road tripping to Chapel Hill for the World Diplomacy Championship at DixieCon this Memorial Day weekend. Let us know if you’d like to join us.

Weasel Moot tips off in 77 days. 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.

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.
