                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Greetings, connoisseurs of Bonsur.  In case you haven't noticed, it is getting warm in
the arena.  And humid.  Not just the usual heat of combat and flowing of blood.  The
warm Summer of Bonsur beckons.  Keep in mind, we perform before the public eye.  So,
tailor your armor to your pysical form.  Gird yourself to the battle body you have,
not the one you want.  The public will lay laurels upon you in return.

                                   Always in good taste,

                                   Madame I. Madame
                                   Ladies of Quality

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  THE MENTORS 12?  Who?  LADIES OF QUALITY is 
the top team these days, buddies!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but LADIES OF QUALITY will tell you 31-41-4 is nothing to laugh at...  
CINDERBONE CLAN had cause to celebrate, after MAUNA LOA got 19 points by beating 
MOMO.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 13 points to HARVEY WALLBANGER.  (Discrete enough, MAYON?) What can be a 
greater victory?  FOUNTAINHEAD has taken his place as the top, as BONSUR's new 
Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are BONSUR's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of CINDERBONE CLAN should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  
The warriors of CINDERBONE CLAN found their efforts at combat frustrated as THE 
MENTORS 12 apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  The manager at 
WISH YOU WERE BEER must have some new strategy for sending BREW 102, a warrior with 
3-0-0, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and 
restraint, I was pleased to see LADIES OF QUALITY retaliate against KILLMORER in 
bloodfeud!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in BONSUR is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
