                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I had YOUR number, 111.  And a slippery number it is, but I spilled honey on it
to get a better grip.

                                      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.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, SAND DANCERS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see TREEMA LORNE win a fight and gain 21 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TREEMA LORNE beat HALF PAST PI and HALF PAST PI lost 18 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAYLA KIV 
may be getting bland, as NIMINI TYL ZO stays top dog in the city.  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?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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 
Clemens

                        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!
