                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of DULLENS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with WOLFDOG?  He actually 
beat DULLENS' SCUMORAMA, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at CARDOW HUNTERS while they watched BEARFOOT clobber UNEXPECTED SEQUEL.  
She lost 3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for DUDE RANCH's outstanding member, Duelmaster SAUSAGE PARTY.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  THONG OF FIRE was plum wore out after ANVIL pounded 
'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  HARRY POTTER AND THE'll have to get a little better before 
going after ANVIL again!  THONG OF FIRE larned hers lesson (ANVIL taught it well), 
and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any CARDOW HUNTERS members with the 
same gusto.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight 
dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

We congratulate Boozer and Sausage Party.  When they leave, will that be the last we
see of their teams? -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters

I don't "do" ghosts.  Ghosts are unacceptable to me. -- Anvil

Unlike Anvil, I have no problem bashing around a standby. -- Starflower

Thong of Fire -- This is ABSOLUTELY insulting, and I am not accepting it.  I am
coming back IMMEDIATELY. -- Laughter Redknife

Unexpected Sequel -- Not a problem.  Very few things can't be solved by eating them.
-- Bearfoot

I don't know who that guy was, and I don't care.  He was Bad. -- Wolfdog
P.S.  If it was an assassination, does that mean I get paid extra for doing it?

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 13-15, 2012.  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 $134.00 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--please make your reservation by December 15

sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
