                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in OSKSI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for ORGAN GRINDER?  I 
WANT YOU's proud of him after beating GRUNT 10 and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  GRUNT 10's match with ORGAN GRINDER cost him a loss of 19 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  JURY DUTY knows this.  
She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Was that a tear I saw in JURY DUTY's eye, as 
she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't SFC 11 fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  GENERATION X was OSKSI's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are AESIR?  GENERATION X, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can MAJOR BUMMER's 
JURY DUTY be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really 
the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out JENNIFER LACY 
challenged HOP SCOTCH.  After all, haven't MAJOR BUMMER and GAMES LIBRARY had a long 
standing duel in OSKSI?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but HOP SCOTCH 
wants me to write about it since she beat JENNIFER LACY.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All OSKSI ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Like, who is this beast???  WASHED OUT HORN gets sent to the 
Dark Arena, battles SHEWISH GIANT, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet I WANT YOU 
manager is surprised!  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  RIGATONI returns from the 
Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his PASTA teammates...  Hey, warriors get 
killed by other warriors, not by their manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  
What's wrong with STAPLE CHASE's 6-2-0, DESK JOCKEYS?  Enough already!  All I've 
heard lately is "Will DESK JOCKEYS Bloodfeud RIGATONI of PASTA to revenge RUBBER 
BAND's death?"  I mean, who cares?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  
I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  OSKSI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

GRUNT 10 (3-6818) OUR HIGHEST HONOR (563)

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $149.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI.

Please make your reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

Look for the tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope 
you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
