                                      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 SENTINELS was unseated 
this week as BEACH BABES moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 5-0-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week SOUND went 0-2-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  My praise to 
TOOL SHED for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  PEARL OF THE SEA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SUMMER SUNNE put 
down CHIRR, causing her to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail GUMBERCULES, Duelmaster of 
BONSUR!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in BONSUR these days is SENTINELS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding SENTINELS.  Indeed it was CHURCH 
LADIES.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after SURFIN' SARA.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in BONSUR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Very back-and-forth for us this turn.  I lost, Summer won, Pearl lost, Wanda won, Oma
lost.  We should have started out the series with ME WINNING.  Then we could come out
three-two instead of two-three, and *I* would have WON.  I need to do that more, and
you guys are NOT HELPING ME.  Get it together! -- Surfin' Sara

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and 
people have been unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the 
tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all 
looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
