                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out MALCORN to see 
what's new.  MVP award for WHITE RABBIT?  GREENWARDENS' proud of him after beating 
MGR THE MAGICIAN and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MGR THE 
MAGICIAN's match with WHITE RABBIT cost him a loss of 16 points!  What a putz!  SIR 
BUBBA THE BOLD fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the 
title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in WINTERGREEN's eye, 
as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't KHALHUMS DWARF fit to be tied!  I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  GREENWARDENS was the most avoided team.  Is a 955-1089-24 record 
really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE GRAIL KNIGHTS?  
GREENWARDENS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

                        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!
