                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TRANSEL needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for AMY 
NESIA?  PSYCHO SQUAD's proud of her after beating SIR RENARD D'KENSIS and getting 13 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  JOHN HUSTON got smashed by NOT-A-NUT JONES, 
and lost 6 points!  Like DARK ARENA's VAREN D'KENSIS is sweating since he got Dark 
Arena Challenged by Duelmaster UPPER DECK!  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
VAREN D'KENSIS killed the Duelmaster, UPPER DECK, leaving BALTO in mourning.  
NOT-A-NUT JONES gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean people might try to 
kill him, too?  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't 
ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of PSYCHO SQUAD must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why BALTO's been 
avoiding PSYCHO SQUAD so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 gotta leave.  TRANSEL is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Upper Deck -- You have made me very unhappy.  That isn't something I take lightly,
you know.  I'm probably going to become angry if this happens again. -- Happy Harriet

John Huston -- No!  Be damned if I'll cringe for you!  Who gave you the right to
demand it? -- Chas Cringer

David Fincher -- Huh, and people look at ME squinny-eyed!  *I* don't go around
calling myself a small bird!  I'm... Not-a-Nut Jones, and don't you forget it.

Orson Wells -- I'm sure somebody is coming to get you, but I don't remember who.
Three legs, though, does that give you an idea?  Probably flying. -- Amy Nesia

Mike F. -- Oh... oh, no, I couldn't.  I'm sure I couldn't.  You mustn't ask me.... --
Faintly Frannie

Our congratulations to Upper Deck, who is being shuffled off to Buffalo or somewhere.
-- Jorja and the Psycho Squad

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), 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 22 
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!
