I agree with all of you; excellent post and it really does bring back memories!

Balouza (Issa), Lisaleasah, Bear_music, Herbanana, Bri_the_Elven_Beauty, tossube, sacrificialvirgin, Cman, Crispy, Kaseygio, Newland, Andy_Clark, VelvetClawz, Genna_Lee and many others here all played in a Cases/MyLeague league for a few years prior to Elite being created. Several of us had kids and didn't like the profanities and "in your face" type of play we continually had there. We wanted a place we could play, and our children could play (or watch over our shoulders), that was “family friendly”.

We were very fortunate to have someone "semi-retired" that had the knowledge and means to create EliteLeague (our first name). I was playing Bear_Music one night and he told me what Issa had done and welcomed me to Elite. I joined, applied for a TD position and was trained by Bear_Music (Robert). Herbanana was the first HA in Bgy and soon thereafter, Giny was started with the same core Admin team we still have today, Lj_Lynn and Chouettelady (Matty was also involved in the beginning). This is a HUGE accomplishment in it’s own right!

It has truly been amazing to watch Eliters grow from about 25 Members to over 43,000 (total). I know many have left, many passed away, many left and returned, many more returning, etc. but we still have many new Members join every day. I still get excited when I log on in the mornings and see 25, or so, new Members just starting their Eliters journey. I remember back to our humble beginnings and am in awe of all that has happened (the lifetime friends, the relationships, the marriages, the children born of relationships, the loss of real friends, the families impacted forever, etc.) because of the vision of one man, Issa Nasser.

Without Issa, none of us would "know" each other as we do. I see this man losing money on Eliters every month and truly wonder why he keeps doing this. He is a very humble man with the abilities to make a lot of money doing other things but, Eliters is like a big family to him also (as dysfunctional as we are most times)! Most of our Members have no idea of the time he spends each and every day so we have this League to come back to whatever part of the day or night we choose. My hat is off to him more than you will ever know.

The next time you see him playing, and yes he has always been a “hands on” owner/Player, think about all the good times you have had here and thank him. Very often our Members/TDs/Admin/etc are very quick to complain to him but rarely thank him for all he has done for all of us. Please do that once in a while as no one here deserves it more!

Thank each and every one of you (yes even you Homie ;-)) for being a part of what we have in Eliters. It is YOU that makes us what we are!

Take care, thank you for all you do but, most importantly, have fun out there!
