                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JHELUM.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  DAVE'S DOGS after a 
sorry 0-1-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 
'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to MYTHORIAN.  DOGS OF WAR had cause to 
celebrate, after DOG BOY BITES got 16 points by beating GIDGET.  Win some, lose some. 
Speaking of which, DOG BOY BITES was winsome, after beating GIDGET and seeing her 
lose 16 points.  COTTONBALL successfully staved off a grab for the roses by VENOMOUS 
VIXEN of JHELUM.  Does JHELUM have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has 
it one team in JHELUM is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to 
death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in PEARL JAM are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DEVIATION, so did that sorry team shy 
from PEARL JAM Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, LEON FROM NAPA is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and 
an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHELUM farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Oh, good, only five died, so the city is safe for the nonce.  Not that the nonce is
safe, but it's better than perishing utterly.

There WERE standbys out there, I SAW them.  But did WE get any?  Noooo, of course
not, and we went one-four in consequence.  I suppose Rosie will be all puffed up now
that she defeated a managed warrior.  Gods, uppity women! -- Leon from Napa

                        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!
