     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to BONSUR once again!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your 
elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  BLADES OF ICE is now ranked 5th 
with a 2-1-0 turn.  What's with VEGAS, BABY!?  It actually beat BEACH BABES' SANDY 
SHORE, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at BEACH 
BABES.  SANDY SHORE lost 10 points to VEGAS, BABY!.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe SANDY SHORE will provide more easy wins...  What a role model for BONSUR's 
young 'uns!  DIKEMBE MUTUMBO becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  
I'm sure BONSUR is excited about UMBRELLA MAN, the new Duelmaster from BEACH BABES.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was BLADES OF ICE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at HATE 
ain't reelin'!  BLADES OF ICE's mad!  What do people see in UMBRELLA MAN?  His 
17-46-0?  BEACH BABES ain't talkin', but he's got 100 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Footballers -- You wrote personals!  And we weren't here to write back.  Well, we
were HERE, but our typist was on vacation.  But we thank you for speaking. -- the
Beach Babes

Peschisolido -- I guess it didn't work, eh?  But you're a better looking image up
there than I was.  No, wait, it's Mutumbo.  Well, he looks better up there than I do,
too.  So there. -- Umbrella Man
P.S.  Congratulations on your graduation.

Solskjaer -- You're welcome. -- Laguna Lil

Dickie -- So, you're leaving us too!  We're going to miss your old familiar face. --
Laguna Lil

Cat-in-the-Hat -- Well, I don't CARE if you're a good gladiator, you look really DUMB
in that hat. -- Umbrella Man, master of tact

Pires -- Just Old Home Week here, isn't it?  But then, they tell me all small arenas
are like this. -- Beach Betty

Hydra -- Too many heads, you know?  It probably confused you. -- Sandy Shore
P.S.  Of course, that IS chaotic, isn't it?

All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm

The 2006 Mordanti Alliance Olympics are off to a grand start!  With seventeen teams
declared, running under eight different flags (not to mention six additional non-
Olympic teams present), it is looking to be as tough as any previous Olympiad, if not
more!  Olympians petitioned the Commission to make an allowance for late entries, and
the Commission agreed, and will allow new entrants to partake, as long as they are
active by Round 3 (T546, due May 29th).  So if you wish to enter, please email your
intentions to amicitia@gwi.net with team name, manager name, and affiliation
(alliance name or independent), or show up in Mordant (DM-1) on, or before, May 29th
and place your declarations in the newsletter!
