Weasel of the Year: Brandon Fogel
Brandon Fogel reigns atop the Season standings for the 4th time, a Weasel club record. Fogel topped the first board of the season with the largest score of the year (Game 397). And after putting up another solid result in the third season game, he coasted to victory after holding off a hard-charging rookie in the season’s final game. In all, Brandon topped three of his 6 boards in a much slower year due to his considerable efforts in helping coordinate virtual diplomacy and the new Diplomacy Broadcast Network.
Ketchum finished the season second overall and scores the Amanda Baumgardner Rookie of the Year award. Ketchum put up a board top in his first board at the Pyle and a close 2nd on the Last Chance Board, but fell just 1.1 points behind Fogel for the top spot. It was the closest finish in the 15-year club history, eclipsing the next closest of 7.6 points from 2012.
Ali Adib finished the season with 4 shared/solo board tops.
The 2020 elections for the Sneak included the regular election of 4 of the 7 total sneak members as well as special election to replace Mike Morrison who resigned last summer.
Bryan Pravel, Brandon Fogel, Christian Kline, and Kevin O’Kelly all ran unopposed for reelection for a 2-year term ending after the 2022 Season. Wes Ketchum ran unopposed for the special election and his term will end after the 2021 Season.
