                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JADE MOUNTAIN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  I can just hear all the boasts 
coming in ZOMBIE SQUAD's next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 4-0-0.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see GANOOSH win a fight and gain 20 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KO-HA OAKCHOPPER beat QUEEN and QUEEN lost 6 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JADE MOUNTAIN may be getting 
bland, as WATERLOO 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, JADE MOUNTAIN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JADE 
MOUNTAIN's morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! 
So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Downer -- Well, you missed the big show!  We had a splendid demonstration of the art
of freezing water on windows.  I have seldom seen anything to touch it. -- Kastenmar

Queen -- We missed you at the great Water Freezing Festival.  Maybe you should plan
and save time in your schedule for the Snowflake Competition.  It won't be for a
month or so, which gives you time. -- Lensi Tu

And two-one against standbys.  So life goes on. -- the other Sand Dancers

                        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!
