                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  KAOS FROGS?  Who?  DREAMERS is the top team 
these days, buddies!  Practice pays for ARISTOCRAT RUM, who pummelled SUGAR BABY, to 
pocket 17 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 10 points to ARISTOCRAT RUM.  (Discrete enough, SUGAR BABY?) The 
arena was more crowded than usual this time, as MUD MUD FROG faced RIZTAB's 
Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by MUD MUD FROG, 
of KAOS FROGS, who despite a 10-8-0 couldn't overcome RIZTAB's Number 1.  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are RIZTAB's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble eagle 
soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DREAMERS, alone and 
unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, KAOS FROGS scurried away 
from DREAMERS.  Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

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

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

looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
