The Weekly Weasel — Week of July 27

Here’s the latest news from the Weasels.
Hosts Cash in on Daily Double
We found our 13th and 14th players at the 11th hour for last Saturday’s two boards in two locations. Both hosts fared well. Dan Burgess shared the board top with two of his guests — perhaps strengthening his claim to be the club’s best host — while Matt Sundstrom posted a monster score on his board, leapfrogging two rivals to take a commanding lead in the club standings. Check out the game summaries.

Two events remain in Season 10: another Red Wednesday on August 12 and then the season-ending Weasel Pyle on August 15. We hope you’ll join us for one or both.

The Pyle Turns Ten
Season 10 will conclude on August 15 at Castle Brown in bucolic Wayne with our 10th annual Weasel Pyle. Make your plans to join us for Dip and the usual merry making. We’ll present the Weasels, our annual club awards; announce the Brawl and Royale bids; elect members to the Sneak; and strike the Regimental Choir. Hope to see you there!

Help Needed!

  • Database. We still are looking for someone who can convert Matt Sundstrom’s rating system to a searchable, web-based database. Please email us at if you can help or have questions.

Dues Are Due
Please note that you must pay your 2015 dues by the start of play at the Weasel Pyle on August 15 in order to qualify for club awards and the Weasel Royale. We’ve kept our rates the same this year. A regular membership will cost you $25; the student rate is just $10. Dues will get you eligibility for club awards and the Weasel Royale championship game, and–when we think of it–first crack at our house games. Dues pay for our club awards, the Meetup group, our website, and the Royale award and hosting subsidy. Please consider paying dues today. You may do so via PayPal here or by giving cash to a member of the Sneak. Thank you to the 26 Weasels who have paid up so far. We appreciate your support.

That’s all for this week.
