                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ROCANIS.  Too bad, MIDDLE WAY 20, but 
MEDAL OF HONOR A11 was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for MEECHAM?  MEN OF 
STEEL's proud of him after beating GASTON IPPS and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  GASTON IPPS got smashed by MEECHAM, and lost 6 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  GERHART ERVIN stopped RIRORNI SPY dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ROCANIS 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.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

I could wish I hadn't taken the title on a loss, but that's the way it goes
sometimes.  For the rest, we went three-two, which isn't bad.  Only one win over a
standby, but to balance it, one loss to a standby.  Oh, well. -- Gerhart Ervin

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.

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

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!
