deaths.  Greatest point gain:  Spare Ahcnor, 23.  Greatest loss:  Smoke, 18.  Same

Olaf -- Should we keep the old newsletter and comment next time? -- Tavis

     Nah, it'd lose the snappy back-and-forth effect. -- Olaf

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!
