In other news, the Chestnut Ladies have decreed that Illinois Club debs will no longer be drafted under NOFDL rules. In accordance with this decision, standard team size has been reduced to 8 members.

League Rules and e-Division drafting forms will reflect this change as soon as The Commish recovers from last night’s draft.

Thanks to all for another fabulous Chestnut evening!!


  1. Hooray for Ellie! One of the nicest girls ever. I still wonder if the Times-Pic had not eliminated the individual deb articles which one of their Living writers composed as well as fact checked from time to time if the YMIC queen information would not have been made public.

    Obviously based upon what was printed this year, it was simply data entry, no real proofing so to speak of as there were other errors with regard to parents, etc. In the past the paper has sometimes down a feature article on the future YMIC, OMIC queens along with other debs about how their parents plan for the season, etc. Not sure the future queen intended that to be public, maybe it was more information to be passed on to the Living staff. Maybe it can be revisited next year, if there is no disclosure ahead of time.

    My color coded index cards are ready to roll. Very quiet on the debutante party scene. I have a feeling that things will start picking up from Thanksgiving onward. It will be interesting to see the Advocate’s coverage of the season which so far has had more color pictures than the Times-Picayune of some individual parties.

  2. Great introduction to team drafting. Many thanks to all for the hospitality and the patience.

    Sincerely hope my team elicits as much humor as possible, because it cannot possibly contend with the likes of my fellow team owners… they are RUTHLESS!!

  3. Arcanum. If this will cheer you up. My stomach jiggles like a bowl full of jelly every time I look at your team. At least you did not commit the egregious twin drafting mistake and only picked one. You correctly “handcuffed” her to her sister.

    P.S. I have no idea who is on your team except for some twins. Bring it.
