                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ROCANIS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, THEM.  But how many friends do you have now?  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well MEDAL OF 
HONOR A11 moved up 0, to 3rd.  What's with JIM DASHER?  He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 
20's GASTON IPPS, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Laughs were 
big at MIDDLE WAY 20 while they watched DENNA FEYL clobber JIMMY THE HAND.  He lost 5 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ROCANI TURNCOAT was 
reminded on the sands why MEECHAM is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, MEN OF STEEL!  In my 
day, no team with a 197-221-29 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THEM?  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, DROXINE!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

Again one-four, but this time no standby for Denna.  Ha!  So, a win for me, and
everybody else skunks.  And without the evidence of a tourney-result listing, they
ALL claim that they lost to "tourney hotshots."  Well, maybe they did, and maybe they
didn't, I suppose. -- Ferria Hough, team victor
P.S.  We live to train tourney hotshots, I guess.  Could be worse.

     True, you could die to train them.
