                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for BULLS-EYE, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing VENOMOUS 
GIGOLO like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  SILVER PINNACLE was subdued by CHARLIE TUNA and drops 11 
points.  It's a proud day for the SHEWISH PICNIC stable, as their warrior, MAIDEN 
HAIR PASTA, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the BONSUR arena.  Did you 
hear that WESTNMAFIA was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of WESTNMAFIA's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SENTINELS beats feet every time WESTNMAFIA 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  OLD FASHIONED WAR defied all odds and slew BLACK ORC in 
the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as BLACK ORC's meat is 
notoriously tough.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in BONSUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Maiden Hair Pasta -- We're glad to see that you're still alive and well and awaiting
a good marinara sauce. -- the Beach Babes

Fifteen fights again!  Three in the Dark Arena, three in daylight with standbys.
This works.

Creamed Malcorn -- Nonsense!  I was waving the orderlies forward to rush you to the
Infirmary. -- Wavin' Wanda

One-four, not one of our finer hours.  Still, we're all at the cabana working on
smash and barbecued pig, and we even PAID the Farmer Next Door for the pig!  Which
means HE does not get any free barbecue.  He's a bit of a pig himself. -- Surfin'
Sara

Weird Haried Frog -- I used to think ANY frog with hair was weird.  Now I know
better. -- Surfin' Sara

Definitely too much fennel. -- Oma Brella

                        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!
