                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MORDANT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, ONE HIT WONDERS, since 
CLUELESS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see JOSH win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, AMBER beat SHOTGUN DADDY and SHOTGUN DADDY lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MORDANT may be getting bland, as ALLEY 
OOP stays top dog in the city.  Conan's Place, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From MORDANT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MORDANT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in MORDANT to get a drink than Conan's Place!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
MORDANT.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Alley Oop -- Damned monkey!  You should be on the rooftops, not in the alleys.  I
freely cede the rooftops to you.  I don't like the heights anyway, and all those
pigeons... faugh!  Give me rats instead. -- Random Maniac
P.S.  Say what else you will about rats, they're smart.  I can train 'em to do all
kinds of useful tricks.
P.P.S.  That's part of why I'm so popular.

Josh -- I tell you, those sugar-frosted flakes will let you down in the long run.  No
staying power. -- Cereal Killer

Amber -- You think you're going to lead MY daughter into bad habits?  Painting her
face, wearing spray-on clothing, hanging out at malls... not a chance! -- Shotgun
Daddy

Tai -- I have no clue to what you were doing, but I'm sure I wouldn't approve if I
knew. -- Masked Murderer

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 13-15, 2012.  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 $134.00 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--please make your reservation by December 15 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  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!
