                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome BONSUR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  BONSUR watched 
with glee as SENTINELS got knocked off top spot by BEACH BABES!  What's with PAULA?  
She actually beat SENTINELS' HIERONYMUS ZIGG, and walked away with 14 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at SENTINELS.  HIERONYMUS ZIGG lost 9 points to PAULA. 
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HIERONYMUS ZIGG will provide more easy wins...  
I can barely restrain my enthusiam for CALL TO THUNDER's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster HIDA YAKAMO.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  BONSUR thinks SENTINELS 
and their 317-211-19 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The 
bums at AMEN! couldn't face the challenges from SENTINELS!  No excuse for that!  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, PALMETTA PATTY!  Don't 
make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Candy -- Somehow that felt as if I might have gotten a bit lucky.  But I will take
the win. -- Epee

Wholly -- That wasn't too bad a butt kicking all things considered.  I hope to win
the rematch. -- Hieronymus

Saltilla -- That plan did not go as, well, planned.  But it was nothing a little
smash can't cure.  We shall try that one again soon. -- Blueburn

Rose -- Very well done, m'lady!  I am impressed and a bit sore.  We must discuss the
finer points of your technique. -- Baldassare

Sister S. -- Blech!  Phuutt!  Yuck!  No, that was not good at all. -- Kronos

Little Lord Jeebus -- Congrats on your Lordship and immortality. -- Sentinels

Fellow Bonsurites -- Fitting, I suppose, that the wee Jeebus be movin' on this close
to Easter!  I hear the Isle has nice beaches; maybe I'll set up a cabana of me own!
-- Jeebus

Ziggyy -- That's what I call a catch-22.  You can't seem to catch a break! -- Molly

Paula -- Just a pair of peas in a pod, weren't we?  I never did care much for peas.
-- Palmetta Patty

Rev. Jimmy -- Well, now, I was just SURE that a big, strong man like you could make
things... worth my while.  And you did.  Thank you so much. -- Little Venus

Blueburn -- Nope, not my color. -- Saltilla

Baldassare -- I couldn't let Venus keep you all to herself, though I can see why she
might want to! -- Rose o' the Reef

Kronos Grimholt -- Sounds like a good plan to us.  We salute the fallen, current and
past. -- the Beach Babes
P.S.  And future, what the heck.

Baldassarre -- We do try. -- Palmetta Patty

Our congratulations to Lord T. Jeebus. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes
