                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in BONSUR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with BELLAMORE?  
She actually beat TOOL SHED's ANNIE AWL, and walked away with 19 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at CHURCH LADIES.  MARY ANN lost 10 points to WOODCHIP WILLA.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MARY ANN will provide more easy wins...  Try as 
she might, DELLEA DOVER wasn't good enough at persuading SAW HORSE to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was THE MOTHERSHIP 017.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
SENTINELS ain't reelin'!  THE MOTHERSHIP 017's mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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

Saw Horse -- You make a fine duelmaster.  Sturdy, firmly braced, ready for anything.
We like you there. -- the Beach Babes

We salute the tourney participants, especially Debbie and Mary Ann, tourney victors
in our midst. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

Anzahanzek -- Well, that looked like a mis-match!  Not that you didn't do well in the
first seconds.  But you gave me a snag in my stocking, and that's not acceptable. --
Dellea Dover

Mary Ann -- Since you're a tourney victor, I don't feel as badly about that loss as I
might have otherwise.  And I *did* hold out into the third minute. -- Bellamore

Woodchip Willa -- Ah, but woodchips are NOT the answer to everything. -- Pearl White

Olaf -- Ah, yes, the adjustment to the smash recipe works well. -- Mona from Maui

Ozawindib -- I suppose you are aware that your name is an anagram for Bind A Wizo?
That tells you a lot right there. -- Annalee
