                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JURINE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Ya gotta be quick on yer 
feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  BATTLE FROGS 
01-14 is now ranked 4th with a 2-1-0 turn.  CANINE CUISINE showed JURINE what they 
were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  What's with 
CHICKEN POODLE SOUP?  He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 16's WILLI ZANE, and walked away 
with 21 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at CEPHEUS.  GAMMA CEPHEI lost 13 
points to TOAD MOB.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GAMMA CEPHEI will provide 
more easy wins...  I'm sure JURINE is excited about ROVERWURST, the new Duelmaster 
from CANINE CUISINE.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, MEDAL OF HONOR G10!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at CANINE CUISINE ain't reelin'!  MEDAL OF 
HONOR G10's mad!  What do people see in WILLI ZANE?  Hers 22-11-0?  MIDDLE WAY 16 
ain't talkin', but she's got 77 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about 
the kind of fights that SPOT ROAST gets in.  He fights people like SERGEANT 1, 8 
points below.  I thought SPOT ROAST showed great skill and promise when he was 
subdued by SERGEANT 1.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  VENOMOUS CONCUBINE proved too determined for 
SERGEANT 3.  SERGEANT 3 was lucky to go in the ring, with 11-5-2 to his credit.  He 
will be remembered.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go... 
     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!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

                        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!
