                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Managers were muttering after SUPERIOR FORCES 1405 showed DWES EG what 
they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 12.  Perhaps it is NOTHING BUT DIP members' 
intannibility that enabled them to move from 22nd to 7th last week...  (Less time in 
the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, SUPERIOR FORCES 6701 
blew up the rankings to 20!  Managers were muttering after WHAT'S MY FRUIT? showed 
DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 28.  Perhaps it is SUPERIOR FORCES 
4701 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 33rd to 16th last week...  
(Less time in the sun...) He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of 
laughing at jokes, observe SUPERIOR FORCES 1607.  Last week they got 0-1-0 to drop by 
4!  STRIPPERS had cause to celebrate, after MERCEDES got 15 points by beating CULT 
MEMBER.  ELEPHANT certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to 
CHILI CHEESE and losing 8 points in the process!  Can you believe it?  HERBERT WEST 
apparently has better things to do as DWES EG's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  
What can be a greater victory?  CHILI CHEESE has taken his place as the top, as DWES 
EG's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week 
and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in DWES EG is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Any teams not transferred

teams, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI 

                        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!
