                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 2-0-0 outing, DEMONIC FURY has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for PAM, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
MONA FROM MAUI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was BELLAMORE, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with ROSE.  Unlike most arenas, MARGO managed to get hers challenge off 
against the 22-19-0 ANNIE AWL.  In front of all the crowds, ANNIE AWL took the 
Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the BONSUR arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SENTINELS?  Big bad SENTINELS.  Big bad 
SENTINELS.  BONSUR's afraid of the big bad SENTINELS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys 
like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause CHURCH LADIES beats feet every 
time SENTINELS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a 
piece of MONA FROM MAUI, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the BONSUR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

Margo -- That casserole you brought to the covered dish supper was devastating, all
right!  There wasn't a THING in it that had any color, so I didn't realize (groan)
how much I had eaten--couldn't SEE it on my plate!--until it was too late. -- Annalee

Mary Ann -- Fortunately, no one could reasonably expect me to defeat a lord
protector. -- Dellea Dover
P.S.  We who are mediocre are always at our best, you know.

Woodchip Willa -- Thanks for the only win on our team!  How about if we get together
to produce some smoked ribs for the next luau?  Woodchips are an important tool in
that, after all. -- Bellamore

Balboa -- Okay, I'm not going to look it up, Jorja's not going to look it up, it
could have been Cortez or Pizzaro or someone, but here it is:  For us, you will
always be the one who stood on a peak and looked at the view with wild surmise.  Just
remember that wild surmise is best with a mug of smash. -- Mona from Maui

Mauli Lama -- Shouldn't you be hanging out with Mona?  She's the one from... oh, I
guess Mauli isn't QUITE the same as Maui.  Next island over? -- Surfin' Sara
