                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARUAK CITY?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch ANIMAL FARM's heads 
swell from their 4-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see COW-ARD win a fight and gain 25 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, COW-ARD beat NASTY ELEMENTAL and NASTY ELEMENTAL lost 23 points. 
You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like ARUAK CITY has some guts at least, EQUALIZER 
the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  PURPLE PIG challenged ARUAK 
CITY's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the 
new, as PURPLE PIG takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  The Bulldog Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From ARUAK CITY's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  IMMORTALS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like BULLDOGS avoided them the most this turn.  What 
a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARUAK CITY to get a drink than The Bulldog 
Inn!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! 
So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

                        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!
