Moot is two weeks away from today at DIVERSEY BOWL #themootabides. But before that, we here at the Weekly Weasel need your help!
IS THIS YOUR HOMEWORK, LARRY?
I need your help, folks, to help me help you. One of our goals here as Weasels is developing championship players. I am working on developing some worksheets/ tools to help players self-evaluate their games. Ideally, I’ll post these right after Moot, when all but one of us is wondering why we didn’t win the tournament / why we suck at diplomacy.
But to improve the quality of the resources (and that no one takes one look and says “that’s just like your opinion, man”), I would love to hear from you. What are the keys to getting better at diplomacy? Where do you players get tripped up? What are key growth areas/ signs of growth? Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and recos.
OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE NOT A GOLFER
Because you’ll be playing diplomacy at Weasel Moot two weeks from RIGHT NOW! 4 rounds with one drop round, so it’s okay if the bar eats you and you have to mark it zero, dude. The moot will abide starting 6/23—sign up here.
HEY, CAREFUL MAN! THERE’S A BEVERIDGE HERE!
And there will be more at the continuation of our Bar Room Brawl series next Wednesday at the Red Lion. Reigning brawl star / current leader Jake Trotta is unable to attend, and with wide open standings, a good result could have a massive impact on the season. Perhaps BTOAB Brandon Fogel will take charge Wednesday night? Could rising stars Sean or Gus secure a spot in the finale? Will Bryan Pravel continue his hot streak? Will club founder Jim O’Kelley build off his CodCon momentum? Or will Chris “Clockwork” Kelly once again top with exactly 9 centers?
My bet is that last one, but I also had Preds in 5.
Find out—and join in on the action—here.
HE’S A GOOD MAN. AND THOROUGH.
Congrats to Prime Weasel Brian Shelden on his 7th place finish at DixieCon!
You’re in a dream. In this dream, you just bought a new puppy. You spent all day playing outside with your little fluffball. The puppy got covered in mud, so you put that adorable puppers in the bath. Maybe you light a few candles and a joint, listen to some Creedence.
But suddenly, two Germans bust in with a marmot. You tried to stop him, but couldn’t reach in time as the marmot kills your new best friend. Tears in your eyes, you turn to the assailants, screaming “WHYYYY???” Staring dead in your eyes, they ask
WHERE ARE YOUR DUES LEBOWSKI? WE WANT YOUR MONEY!
Give us your money, Lebowski, or the puppy gets it.
