    Drop us a line if you plan to travel to the event. We can help with your transportation to and from the airport, most likely. The website for the con is a work in progress, but you may find some housing tips there. Check it out.

    We may also be able to find you crash space with local players, so let us know your needs.

    On the fence about CODCon? Perhaps this will seal the deal for you: Greg Duenow will be joining us for the two Saturday rounds.

    For all you newcomers, Greg joined the club in our third game back in January 2006 and was instrumental in the early rise of the Weasels. He was an active player, host and traveler right up until he moved to Detroit in 2010, and is one of our club’s all-time characters.

    I posted the tournament rules today. They’re worth a look, if only to learn whether you’ve been pressed into service on the tournament committee. Also, this rule set will be the basis for the WDC rule set.
