Editors note Mikamon

Welcome to issue 108 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

With Nyxxie enjoying the Hawaiian sun, I am taking care of the Buzz this week. A week which has been a pretty calm one on Bootleggers. Sadly, this also resulted in a somewhat smaller Buzz. Despite the size, we did cover all major events for you. One crew faced it's end this week, CD & Absolute Zero was the unlucky crew to be thrown of the statistics, only to be replaced by The Trust.

Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer is a phrase one hears from time to time. The Vanguard almost kept its enemies too close as the crew was allowed a peak into the dark abyss wiped out crews are sucked into. They got insided, but managed to regain their place thanks to the help of their friends.

The Black Out also disappeared from the statistics and we saw The Deadly Pandas taking their place. This give us another, pretty new crew that can offer us excitement.

This week also marks the end of the Buzz Christmas Contest. At last, all cars have been sold. Check the contest article in this issue to find out who won, and to discover the final winning plate, as there is still a 70 million dollar price to be claimed.
As always, we have 'Behind the Name', 'A Year Back' and 'Telling It Like It Is' lined up and waiting for you.

We are also happy to present you with three freelance articles this week. The Buzz finds them very interesting to read and wants to encourage everyone who wants to share his or her view with the rest of Bootleggers to submit a freelance article. A freelance article can be about any subject, as long as it is related to Bootleggers. It's a very good way to voice your opinion into the Bootleggers world, so keep sending them in!

As always, the Buzz is 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 before we've contacted 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.

Enjoy this week's read, and stay safe so we can catch you again next week!
