The Weekly Weasel — Week of June 30

Slow news week, so this will be brief.

Under Four Weeks ’til Weasel Moot
Folks, Weasel Moot tips off in 24 days. That will be here before you know it, so make your plans to join us now. Then check out the event page on Facebook. We’ll be right downtown in the heart of Chicago’s bustling River North neighborhood at the Hampton Inn and Suites, 33 W Illinois. Call 312-832-0330 to reserve your room or visit our website for other housing options, including Airbnb.

This year’s event will feature two rounds on Saturday, July 26, and 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. For travelers who arrive early enough, I’ve got four box seats at Wrigley Field for the Cubs and Cardinals. First pitch is at 3:05. So far, one of the tix is spoken for, and another is under questionable claim.

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

Upcoming Games

 

  • August 9, Weasel Pyle Nine, the season-ending gala at Eric Brown’s home in Wayne, starting at 11 a.m. until no later than 10 p.m. Have four.

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 4-6: Philadelphia Massacre in Philadelphia.
  • July 26-27: Weasel Moot VIII at the Hampton Inn and Suites downtown.
  • August 9: Weasel Pyle Nine!

Pyle the Ninth!
Founding Weasel Eric Brown will once again host our club’s happiest tradition. The ninth annual season-ending Weasel Pyle will be August 9 at Eric’s beautiful home in bucolic Wayne. We’ll start play at 11 a.m. and wrap up no later than 10.

In addition to the boards — one of which will be our 250th league game — we’ll hand out our annual club awards, The Weasels; announce the bids for the Weasel Royale and Bar Room Brawl championship games; strike the Regimental Choir; and engage in all sorts of merrymaking. You don’t want to miss this.

Look Sharp and Carry a Big Stick
Good news for all you fashionably minded Weasels out there. We’re now selling t-shirts at spreadshirt.com. A small commission from each sale will benefit the club, so you can look good and feel good about helping us out. But mostly you’ll look good, and that’s what matters most, right? Check it out and buy your Weasel Moot VIII or Warrior shirt today.

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. Twenty-two 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. Make your plans to join us at Moot!
