                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in LYRATILAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with COLIN 911?  He 
actually beat LYRATILAN's THE HONEST MERCHANT, and walked away with 19 more points 
from the fight.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for SAY MY NAME's outstanding 
member, Duelmaster BEETLEJUICE.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  What 
do people see in MELONDIE PRINN?  Hers 20-26-1?  THE MIDDLE WAY 4 ain't talkin', but 
she's got 87 points.  Keep challenging up 26 points, STACI, and I won't have to write 
about you much longer.  MELONDIE PRINN always accepts those kind of challenges...  I 
don't get it.  STACI goes and challenges MELONDIE PRINN, way above her, but gets 2 
points after she loses!  Is this a new strategy?   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  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 $145.00 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--code RSI--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!
