                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of BONSUR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  AMEN! had cause to 
celebrate, after JUMPIN JEHOSAPHAT got 23 points by beating PALMETTA PATTY.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 12 
points to BLUEBURN.  (Discrete enough, SALTILLA?) In BONSUR, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, BALDASSARE.  Word has it one 
team in BONSUR is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll 
bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in BONSUR avoid BEACH BABES.  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, AMEN! scurried away from BEACH BABES.  Oh, the shame!  If 
challenges were horses, SALTILLA could open up a fast food joint!  Willing to win at 
any cost is THE PREACHER'S WIFE, who challenged HAYMAKER, 14 points junior.  Our 
sympathies, HAYMAKER!  I thought THE PREACHER'S WIFE showed great skill and promise 
when she lost to HAYMAKER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  The audience gave a 
nice round of rasberries to DEANNA DELITE of BEACH BABES, for expiring in such an 
ungraceful fashion.  7-6-0, indeed!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for BONSUR?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Haymaker -- Why make hay?  What's the use of hay?  Unless you're a cow, I suppose, or
maybe a horse.  But still, why not let the farmers make hay?  While the sun shines,
if it ever does. -- Queenie

Blueburn -- Sunscreen.  SPF 50.  I was prepared. -- Palmetta Patty

Sister Sinister -- But not today, huh?  Works for me. -- Saltilla

Jumpin Jehosaphat -- You make me nervous, jumping around like that all the time.  I
don't think it's safe. -- Little Venus
P.S.  Jumping with a sword is probably just as bad as running with scissors.

Blago the Axe -- Not really.  I mean, it's OKAY, if you like that kind of thing, but,
you know, not for every day. -- Deanna Delite

Kronos -- You say the sweetest things! -- Patty

Our congratulations to Baldassare. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

Candy Cane -- You are a dangerous lady.  Not as sweet as a guy might first expect.
And what is with this graduation notice?  I won't complain, despite the commission's
failure to live up to their lands pledge, but I had not expected it. -- Lord
Protector Baldassare

Queenie -- Titles of royalty are all well and good, but on the sand it comes down
your ability to wield a blade.  Hopefully I will have more like that one.  So, how
are your smash making skills?  Or does royalty prefer a more refined drink? --
Haymaker

Patty -- Nice fight.  Perhaps we can discuss it over a bit of smash, you have much to
teach a young warrior. -- Blueburn

The Preacher -- My team mates seem to be having trouble with your spouse.  But I am
happy to say that you were beatable.  I suspect we shall meet again. -- Kronos
Grimholt

Lord Protector Baldassare, and others who are interested -- Queen Gemra has called a
conference to "thrash out" this business of lands.  She feels keenly that, though
supplying lands is not her business, yet you have a reasonable right to expect to
receive some.  Thus, the conference.  It won't happen this week because of scheduling
problems, but by next time the arena meets to fight, there should be, if not lands,
at least a meaningful discussion thereof. -- Chancellor Grendal
P.S.  She suggests you mention to your colleagues that King Cyrath of Sunset is
planning to attend, also.
