                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VALAMANTIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see B.F. SKINNER win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
B.F. SKINNER beat IMROM LLEWS and IMROM LLEWS lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, INFERNO has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as MAX WEBER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Drunkard's Guild, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From VALAMANTIS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

                        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 (480-894-7444), 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!
