WELCOME to Issue #102 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

My, my, Bootleggers is getting festive this week with the holly, mistletoe, presents and Christmas pictures! With only a couple of weeks until Christmas and many other festive Holidays, players just cannot wait to get in the holiday spirit! But through the midst of Holiday giveaways, pictures and much more, someone will always put aside the Holiday Cheer to spray a few bullets across the game and into the accounts of many.

All the Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas cards must have gotten Sweetie and Andy into a Christmas mood as they decided to start an MS Paint Contest with Christmas as subject. If you want to have some fun with Paint and want to try and win Bootleggers dollars then check out Andy's article and join the Paint fun right away!

Apart from the contest, we had other events this week. As we lost two Nation Dons, the Buzz hooked up and sat down with the third one before he'd get killed as well. Between players scamming others by selling a crew spot that wasn't even theirs, crews versus crews and a new nation don, the game was pretty eventful this week, would you agree?

As always, we have our weekly segments such as "Behind the Name", "A Year Back" and our "Buzz Tutorial". As promised, "Crew of the Week" is back with a look at Strictly Business. The Buzz is also proud to launch the "Bootleggers Holiday Tree" again this year, so start decorating your Holiday ornament!

We are looking for writers. If you are interested in becoming a writer then read the re-printed version of "So You Think You Can Write?" in issue 97. Please submit a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event via selecting Application in the "Send a" located on the bottom of each Buzz. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead by the time we contact you, please submit the same article all over again! Your articles will be reviewed as quickly as possible but please have patience, we won't forget about you.

Remember, anyone can write a freelance article and they are obviously free to do so. They are a chance for each of you to have a voice about the game and possibly share any thoughts that you may have with the BL community. We are sad that we haven't received many lately and would like to encourage everyone to send them in. This week, we are proud to publish three of them but we would love to publish more. So start sending them in!

Have a blessed week and enjoy the game!
