                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ARUAK 
CITY.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to ANIMAL FARM, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE 
HITCHHIKERS stable.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, THE HITCHHIKERS has 
advanced 3 places in the rankings.  BULLDOGS is no joke as it posted a 4-1-1 week 
advancing from 3rd place to 4th place.  Hey everybody, watch out for ZAPHOD 
BEEBLEBROX, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing PURPLE PASSION like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  MINUTE STEAK was overcame by KHALHUMS DWARF and drops 9 points.  Drawing 
on all of his experience as a 20-1-0 warrior, PURPLE PIG went for the Duelmastership 
against SERENITY this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was ANIMAL FARM's PURPLE PIG, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
SERENITY.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming 
at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that CANNIBALZ was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of CANNIBALZ's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause BULLDOGS beats feet every time CANNIBALZ smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of IRVIN FLETE, 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?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARUAK CITY giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
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!
