                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see DARTH PLAGUS win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CRAZED 
WILDEBEEST beat BLUE ALBATROSS and BLUE ALBATROSS lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as THE TALL MAN takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
ZUKAL?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  KARNHORN KARNAGE was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like SATAN'S KINGDOM avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUKAL's 
morgue.  More variety.  It's about time MERCURY got beat for picking on warriors like 
THE TALL MAN.  Bravo, BLUE MOON.  See you at The Blue Boar Inn.  We're all going to 
die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

MERCURY (9-5692) QUEEN (522)

                        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!
