                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZENSU games.  WHEEL CHAIR caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested CORBETT JOSYE and was awarded 25 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, RHOMBA put down 
CORMEK DEANE, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
CORBIE LEK made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious EARTH.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in ZENSU seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  CAPTAIN PLANET is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding CAPTAIN PLANET.  Indeed it was OLDER BY FAR.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  CORMEK DEANE take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ZENSU.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani 
Sharp Eyes

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  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 $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), 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 22 
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!
