|The Weekly Weasel|
Sign-ups for our two February games have been sluggish. John Gramila will host our first Saturday house game of the season on February 7 at his home in Humboldt Park, beginning at 11 a.m. ... if we can find six more players. Then on the 11th, it's back to the Red Lion in Lincoln Square for another Red Wednesday. That one will start at 6:30 p.m. and go until no later than 11. We have four signed up.
Check your calendars, then sign up for one or both. CODCon is right around the corner, so now's the time to tune up.

Last year, Hipster John Gramila swept our two tournaments. Now, we get a chance to pay him back in his living room...

|WCW Club Season 2015 Games|
On a board bristling with three of this year's Royale contestants, including the Bull Weasel; a former Bull Weasel; and one of the club's rising young guns, cagey vet and Founding Weasel Eric Brown showed what he can do for you, and to you, when he decides to play.
It's official: When it comes to apples, they don't fall far from the tree. And when the tree is a scourge, that portends calamity for the club.
Black Jack Sundstrom, Bull Weasel Matt's son, posted his second board top of the season in just two games, and this one was a doozy. His 13-center Germany nets him more than 61 points and sole possession of first place in the standings. Game No. 261, played Friday at Pete McNamara's home in Evanston, ended after the Fall 1908 turn in the following center counts:
Through last week's two-board session at the Red Lion, we've now played seven games in this year's Bar Room Brawl Series. Matt Sundstrom remains in first with 79.14 points in three games. Bunched behind him are Ali Adib (58.37 points, three games), Jim O'Kelley (52.85 points, three games), and David St. John (52.37 points, two games).
A bunch of players are stacked behind them with scores between 23 and 34 points. For the complete standings, click here. Next up is another Red Wednesday at the Red Lion on January 14. Two more boards already is looking like a possibility.
If there's a pattern to these things--and let's be honest, there probably is--then one of the Kevins O'Kell(e)y ought to be feeling pretty good about his chances in next year's Bar Room Brawl Championship game. (Of course, as the old joke goes, you can't win without buying a ticket.)
Last year's inaugural Brawl Championship went to Jim O'Kelley. Last night at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, Chris Kelly kept the title in the sort-of family by storming to a five-center lead as England. In fact, Kelly's dominance was so convincing that the players voted to concede the Brawl Star title with more than an hour of play left on the clock.
