For the second time in club history and first since July 2015, the Weasels fielded boards in two locations on the same day. The games took place yesterday on the New East Side and in Avondale.
Originally scheduled for Brian Shelden’s condo on the swanky New East Side, Game No. 327 relocated to the bar Seven in his building due to construction in his unit. Readers will recall that Seven is the karaoke bar where we went after the welcome party for last summer’s World Diplomacy Championship. Turns out it works pretty well for Dip, too.
The game ended by draw vote in Spring 1908. The final center counts were:
Austria (Chris Kelly): 0; 0.000 points.
England (Brian Shelden): 0; 0.000 points.
France (Ted McClelland): 10; 38.760 points.
Germany (Ian Miller): 8; 24.806 points.
Italy (Tim Schwartz): 3; 3.488 points.
Russia (Bryan Pravel): 7; 18.992 points.
Turkey (David Spanos): 6; 13.953 points.

Meanwhile, Ali Adib organized the club’s first live digital game at his place in Avondale. He asked the players to bring smart phones, laptops or tablets, and used one of the online sites as an interface for entering moves and displaying the board.
Game No. 328 featured three first-time Weasels in Lucy Marcus, Paul Beinnel and Peter Buczak. The game ended by time limit after the Fall 1906 turn in the following center counts:
Austria (Mick Johnson): 5; 11.468 points.
England (Lucy Marcus): 9; 37.156 points.
France (Paul Beinnel): 2; 1.835 points.
Germany (Gus Spelman): 6; 16.514 points.
Italy (Jake Trotta): 2; 1.835 points.
Russia (Ali Adib): 2; 1.835 points.
Turkey (Peter Buczak): 8; 29.358 points.
