                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAYLA KIV?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SAND DANCERS, since NUMB-ERS 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see 111 win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
ONE beat GORBLE and GORBLE lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as -.... takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, DAYLA KIV?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAYLA KIV's 
morgue.  More variety.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see 
ONE and NUMB-ERS at The Crystal Wheel tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory 
over GORBLE.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up 
with you sooner that later?   
     What does the DAYLA KIV arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of DAYLA KIV.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

                        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!
