                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TOBIR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, THE DEATH SQUAD, but F 
WORDS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for FEIGN?  F WORDS' proud of him 
after beating LASSO and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FOEHN 
got smashed by THE WATCH DOG, and lost 13 points!  Like, NORIX must be pretty gutsy!  
He challenged the Duelmaster from F WORDS.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  
And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
NORIX.  Aren't PHILANTHROPISTS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said 
TOBIR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Deeproot Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  Can THE DEATH SQUAD's LUG NUT be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  So THE DEATH SQUAD has one more turn to 
Bloodfeud F WORDS' FANTASSIN.  Big deal.  HOCK's dead.  What's the point?  Ya just 
gotta go on.  Don't look back...  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd 
be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  TOBIR is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

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 (480-894-7444), 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 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been

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