     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in MALCORN this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  NBA TODAY stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 
into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, NIMBLE NICKEL fought CHENEY and gained 16 points and 
contributed to WEIRD STUDENTS' 4-1-0.  CHENEY has lost to NIMBLE NICKEL, falling 9 
points, while helping make POLITICOS a 0-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another 
turn, MGR THE MAGICIAN kept WRATHMEN 5's warrior, KHELOLIR, from claiming the throne. 
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Drake's 
Barbecue uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  THE GRAIL KNIGHTS has cause to stand tall, as they were 
MALCORN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided THE GRAIL KNIGHTS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was THE 
GRAIL KNIGHTS.  Anyone surprised?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  This is not good to see.  Why pray 
tell has SIR GUY OF GREEK been sent to the Dark Arena by THE GRAIL KNIGHTS?  And why 
with a 4-1-0 record??  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of 
their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, MALCORN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MALCORN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in MALCORN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
