Welcome Comrades to the 59th edition of the Dispatch :)

Big news this week as Victor Sullivan will be taking over full time as Newsletter Executive. For all those people who love to read my summaries of the newsletter, sorry, but this is the last time you'll see me writing at the very top.

Anyways, highlights of this issue include a new CC story in the Freestyle Section, some tips on how to run tournaments in the in the Tournament section, possible new map ideas in the Foundry Section, and the fickle mistress that is luck in the Clan section. Something for everyone, and I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Go stuff your face and watch some football or hockey.

Hello again my friends, and welcome to your favorite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments!

In this issue we get the second installment of DaveH's Tournament Tips. If you're serious about running tournaments efficiently, I would definitely suggest that you follow this series. Dave is a master of Excel and some of the ways he has devised to simplify complex record-keeping tasks are amazing!

Angola and sonicsteve weigh in with their regular features, and sonicsteve has a special article as well, reminding us about the special requirements of large-team tourneys. Enjoy!

Hey, hey, hey, folks! I have some rather shocking news! This will be my last issue as the Foundry Executive. thehippo8 has been a Foundry Reporter here for a long time now and his diligence and overall article quality has really been a blessing, so he will be stepping up next issue as the new Foundry Executive. I have the utmost confidence in him, so I hope you'll all help me in welcoming him to the Executive team :) Now, just because I'm stepping down as the Foundry Executive doesn't mean I'm leaving. Quite the contrary, actually. But more on that later ;)

Now for the articles! thehippo8 has one "boomshankar" of an article for you (*shrugs* his word, not mine. I just hope it isn't something profane in another language :sick: ) and koontz looks at "what's next for maps", including some of the countries that have been neglected, despite CC's vast collection of 201 maps!

Enjoy, folks, and I'll see you next issue ;)

This week we have 2 rant-filled litany's on the woes of disorganization and the vagaries of luck by the resident Bogan from down under and the Norse hound respectively.
Elsewhere in the clan scene, The Pack finally wrap up their epic top ten challenge with a close victory, wherein it ratcheted up more views than the Tofu-Empire saga in the CC2 quarterfinals

In Clan Competition news, the most exciting of which is the introduction of a 7 game tiebreak to decide the CC2 Semi-final between THOTA and TSM, the inaugural Random League heads into it's 7th week with Mythology taking the lead and both the All-Comers Cup (ACC) and the Clan Directors' Random Suicide Tournament (RST) are into their third rounds.
For the RST, the semi-finalists in the main bracket are Empire, Agents of Chaos, Legion and Brethren of the Fat Mermaid (who were the top 4 seeds coming into the event).

The 2nd edition of the Newcomers Cup has also commenced, with 12 clans participating and the top 4 according to A400 having a bye.

The perennial Chuuuuck also returns to the Clan Scene, so if you want his expert assistance, make your offers known here

You took the "x" in "sexism", stomped on it, threw it out the window, ran it over with your car, burnt it with a blowtorch, then rearranged the remaining letters to make "misse".
