     Sam leaned over, hands on his knees, to watch the troll drawing in the dust.
The fox crept closer and watched, also.  The style of the drawing suggested that it
was a map, but it resembled no map Sam had ever seen before.  The fox stretched out a
paw, placed it on one part of the drawing, and barked sharply.  The troll rumbled and
re-drew that part.
     Sam shook his head sharply.  Obviously, the fox was going to accept this
message.  But somewhere that a troll wanted to send--that had to be dangerous.  He,
Surfer Sam, was responsible for these foxes.  They trusted him.  He would have to go
along and make sure the fox was protected.
     Which meant he wouldn't be here to keep an eye on his Babes!  He straightened
up.  "I'll be right back," he told the fox.  "Don't leave without me."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And I am back again after yet another match-up with Nora.  I can't really
complain, I get a win and then she makes public comments about how strong I am.  Then
we go back to the Cabana.  Truly, there is very little to complain about in that
pattern.  It does look like a couple of the other Babes may be trying to get in on
some title action next turn.  I guess we will see.  Hopefully I will receive my
invite to the Isle after this next turn if all goes well, so perhaps the Babes will
be free of me soon.
     Speaking of Babes...where did they all come from?!  The Beach Babes have been a
fixture in Bonsur for many years.  Then we got the Church Ladies.  I never did
understand why they would want to fight in a bloody ol' arena, but hey, that is there
call and we are happy for the competition.  Now the Bonsur Babes that rock show up.
Throw in the occasional Babe like Chios on a team of guys and 75% of the warriors
that took the field last turn were ladies.  This is a great arena in which to be
Duelmaster!
     Stand tall, men!  And enjoy your next turn's action!

-- Obrojobo, Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 0-0-0 outing, BATHTUB ARMADA has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at AMEN! had a good week as they 
went 3-1-0 to put them in 6th place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch 
out for CHEEZY CREAZY, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing HEFTY 
HANNAH BABE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  LONG BEACH LILA was subdued by ERASMUS and drops 17 
points.  In front of all the crowds, BARTEZ took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  
I give the bum two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day 
keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SENTINELS?  Big bad SENTINELS.  
Big bad SENTINELS.  BONSUR's afraid of the big bad SENTINELS.  Tra la la la la!  And 
you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS 
beats feet every time SENTINELS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this 
NEANDERTHAL you ask, with 58 points and a 12-10-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, PIRES went after PENSACOLITA, 
who was higher by 24 points.  Well, when the dust settled, PIRES subdued PENSACOLITA. 
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in BONSUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Pensacolita -- Time to share the smash!  I had been doing well against you until I
tried to tweak my strategy a bit.  Evidently that was a bad idea.  I shall "suck it
up and get on with life."  Nothing a good smash can't help. -- Erasmus

Margo -- A challenge from the Susie book-of-challenges.  You two are really terrible
teachers. -- Your favorite local caveman, Neanderthal

Patty -- Nice wins and nice learns.  Clearly you are a better teacher than those
ladies who spend all their time in Church.  The Cabana has its advantages--I know
I've learned a thing or two there.... -- Oliander

Sexy Salena -- Welcome to Bonsur.  At the very least, this babe was rockin'! -- Chios

Susie -- Um, thank you?  What we always needed for a party, I'm sure.  Green jello is
very, um, festive, right.  It's so...green.  And with...stuff in it.  Grapes?
Sheep's eyes?  Whatever, I'm sure it will add that final perfect touch to the, uh,
festive board.  Yes.  It will. -- Teri Towyl

Obrojobo -- There are times when I really wish I could change styles, you know?
There are several other styles I'd rather be right now, about...nine of them.  Ah,
well.  At least I got in two clashes before you started whacking me.  Must be a sign
of something. -- N'Orleans Nora
P.S.  Maybe that you had too much smash behind the cabana last night, though I don't
*think* you did.  I was watching.

Erasmus -- I am mortified that the arena reporter put that STUPID, melodramatic
phrase in my mouth!  As if I would every say such a thing!  As if I would ever
contemplate DOING such a thing! -- Pensacolita

The Venomous Gigolo is an elf.  Why is this not a surprise, eh?  But I won't have him
at the cabana! -- Long Beach Lila

Oliander -- Oh, my!  (fans herself with her hand)  You are SOOO smart!  I think my
brain short-circuits just being near you! -- Palmetta Patty

Erasmus -- I'm trying a new variation in the smash, adding blueberries, which are
said to be very healthful.  The smash should be healthful, right?  But the color
turned strange on it.  What do you think?  Will a fluorescent purple mixed drink GO?
-- Pensacolita

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
