                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in SOLVEN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 4-1-1.  Keep it up, ARE YOU ?!  MVP award 
for SILVER SEAS?  ARE YOU ?'s proud of him after beating NORM RIDDLE and getting 14 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  NYSSA RYE got smashed by M. CHARDINEE, and 
lost 14 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause she's Number One!  
WURM KIN knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think FOXY LADY should let WURM KIN be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
SOLVEN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  MIDDLE WAY 15 was the most avoided team.  Is a 
511-520-11 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE MENTORS 
GORE?  MIDDLE WAY 15, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!  Like, is GUSSIE FINKNEWTON popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of SOLVEN!  He's got a 6-6-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Like, who is this gal???  FOXY LADY gets 
sent to the Dark Arena, battles WURM KIN, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet ARE YOU 
? manager is surprised!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Our congratulations to Foxy Lady, always a fun match. -- Iyan Kennis, speaking for
those who walk the Middle Way, except Nyssa and Jayne

And WE congratulate Foxy Lady as a feminine role model and all that. -- Nyssa and
Jayne

Four-one, which is AMAZING.  And totally fair, because the boastful Norm got the
loss.  Ha! back at him. -- Iyan Kennis

Ignore Iyan.  He's blinded by jealousy.  I got a WIN over a managed warrior, the only
one of those on our team this time. -- Norm Riddle

FOXY LADY (22-7043) ARE YOU ? (768)

                        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!
