                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TOBIR once again!  Biff!  Pow!  TOBIR watched with glee as 
WU-TANG FOREVER got knocked off top spot by MENTOR BLISS!  What's with KAMIN?  She 
actually beat THE DOGHOUSE's SPIKE, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at ZOMBIE SQUAD while they watched JILES clobber FONZANOON.  
It lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  DAISY was 
reminded on the sands why MANSION is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
LIVING LARGE.  The bums at MENTOR BLISS couldn't face the challenges from LIVING 
LARGE!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, MAN MOUNTAIN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
DARQUE SAYS DIE! of THE DEATH SQUAD knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged SCREWDRIVER 
of MENTOR BLISS who is up by 23.  Now was this a wise move?  DARQUE SAYS DIE! perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he was bested by SCREWDRIVER and ended up with 11 
recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  MAN MOUNTAIN looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned 
THE DEATH SQUAD is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 30-15-0?  
Some people are wondering why THE DEATH SQUAD sent MAN MOUNTAIN (30-15-0) to the Dark 
Arena.  Just be glad you're not on their team.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters 
getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

MAN MOUNTAIN (14-4879) THE DEATH SQUAD (63)

                        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!
