                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZUWAYZA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, THE MAGNIFICENT 
MAGS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MONOPOLY!  Way to 
go MONOPOLY!  MVP award for WALTER PIDGEON?  MAN OR BEAST?'s proud of him after 
beating BALTIC AVE and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  BALTIC 
AVE got smashed by WALTER PIDGEON, and lost 11 points!  And I was just getting used 
to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome HEMLOCK.  Aren't SERPENTS 
HOLD II proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of MONOPOLY must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  
What kind of warriors are MAN OR BEAST??  MONOPOLY, an easy team to beat if I ever 
saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUWAYZA ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ZUWAYZA is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

fragile ecosystem. -- Desert Plants

Hemlock -- I tell people OVER AND OVER AGAIN that they should be CAREFUL!  Not
everything that looks "kind of like a carrot" is safe to eat.  But do people listen?

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

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 
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!
