     Queenie came rushing into the cabana waving... a miscellaneous piece of paper.
Not a newsletter, anyway.  "I just heard!  Everybody in the Infirmary is talking
about it and laying in supplies--"
     "Sounds like trouble," Kona Kate answered.  "If the Infirmary expects to get a
lot of business--"
     "It's the tourney!  They're going to hold the Spring Tourney HERE, in Bonsur!"
     "What!  Why?" Rhonda demanded.
     "I don't know, why not?  Bonsur is a good place, friendly people, a good beach-"
     "I bet Debby Tonte was behind the choice!" Sarah Sundance said, laughing
suddenly.  "I do like that woman, she has good priorities."
     "Maybe so."  Kate frowned.  "But if there are going to be hundreds of gladiators
and all their hangers-on: managers, trainers, armorers, cheering sections, water
boys, all those people, coming into Bonsur, well... where will we PUT them?  There
aren't that many inns, and even if all the vacant guildhouses are pre-empted, STILL-"
     "Tents on the fields outside of town?" Luau Lila suggested.
     "Not OUR fields!"  Queenie, who had taken the care of the vins on the Beach
Babes property as a personal responsibility, took a step back toward the door.
"They'd trample the vins!  RUIN them!"
     "We'll just have to make sure they know the vins are important and need to be
left alone," Lila said.  "Maybe if we distract them with a big feast on the
beach...."  She fell silent, fingers tapping on the table.  "Whole pigs to roast,
sweet potatoes, fresh pineapple if we can get it...."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly BONSUR games.  Former top team BEACH BABES was 
unseated this week as CHURCH LADIES moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-0-0 record for the round.  SAW HORSE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested REDONDO RHONDA and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SAW HORSE put down 
REDONDO RHONDA, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  
Although KONA KATE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious CHAINSAW CHUCK.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in 
duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In BONSUR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  BONSUR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is TOOL SHED, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of CHURCH LADIES are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  QUEENIE take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in BONSUR.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of PAULA who this 
week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 13 points below in the rankings.  I 
thought PAULA showed great skill and promise when she defeated QUEENIE.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in BONSUR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

One real fight (a loss), and four wins against standbys?  No wonder we made Top Team
again.  Nomad's away for now, but where are the rest of you? -- the Beach Babes,
feeling put upon
P.S.  It hardly seems worth writing to the standbys, though they do answer now and
then.  And Queenie says she's "too shook up" to write to Chainsaw Chuck.  Oh, well.
