                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LIN TIRIAN to 
see what's new.  MVP award for SERGEANT 3?  MEDAL OF HONOR Z2's proud of him after 
beating ANN NASTY and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  THE WEEPER's 
match with GALLOWS cost him a loss of 7 points!  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  LUCREZIA BARON stopped CONVICTED ASSASSIN dead in his tracks!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All LIN TIRIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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 gotta leave.  LIN TIRIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Five-oh for us, but EVERY fight involved a standby.  Despicable people, most of them,
and I whole-hearted despick them.  And the new team member (sigh), I'm almost ashamed
to associate with him.  No, I *am* ashamed to associate with him, and believe me when
I say that I do not "do" shame lightly. -- Lucrezia Baron

I can almost see Lucy's point.  The new guy, the Masked Marauder, wears a mask, a
cloak, and sandals, and NOTHING ELSE.  He runs around the city "flashing" his cloak
open.  Frankly, he has NOTHING to boast about. -- Ann Nasty

                        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!
