     "Duelmaster, Recognition Leader, Popularity Leader, Top Team, AND Top Team on
the Move.  No help for it.  We have to do something," Queenie said.
     "You have to do something, you're the one who's winning all the awards."
     "As if!  You're the one who invited the Khalhums Dwarf to come over and party,
Sarah, so YOU can be in charge of this week's... event."
     "And me," Kona Kate said.  "I've got the coffee cake ready."  She opened the
oven door to take it out, and the scent of cinnamon cake swept through the cabana and
out into the yard.
     Everyone turned to face the cake, breathed in deeply and sighed.  "Oh, yeah,"
Sarah said, "this will be great.  I can tell."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't know what I was thinking, Bariloche.  I should have thrown that fight to
you--wouldn't have been hard, you're good--and let YOU do the column.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of BONSUR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  
Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  CHURCH LADIES is now 
ranked 3rd with a 2-0-0 turn.  What's with MARGO?  She actually beat BONSUR's 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 8 more points from the fight.  Major screwup 
at BEACH BABES.  SARAH SUNDANCE lost 3 points to KHALHUMS DWARF.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SARAH SUNDANCE will provide more easy wins...  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for TOOL SHED's outstanding member, Duelmaster CHAINSAW 
CHUCK.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
TOOL SHED.  In my day, no team with a 43-44-0 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, CHURCH LADIES?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Hammer -- Where'd you go, big guy?  You seem to be missing in a couple of different
places.  Hopefully things are ok and you will return soon. -- Nomad

Bonsur -- The Sentinels hope to make their absence from Bonsur as brief as possible.
Hopefully they will return to the sands next turn--or maybe the turn after that.  But
the absence is not expected to be long term. -- Nomad and the Sentinels

Chainsaw Chuck -- A golem.  This does NOT make my day.  And then you won, which
didn't help at all.  (heavy sigh)  Good fight. -- Luau Lila

The Venomous Gigolo.  Drat.  I hate him. -- Kona Kate

Yeah, well, I'm not real thrilled by the Convicted Assassin, either.  I'm not sending
