How long have you been playing games online?
Been playing on line 3 and a half years.
How much time do you spend online a week?
Omg, as my husband would say, lots!
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
I had joined several other leagues when I first got my PC, and I was playing in a lounge where Elite was and just started talking to Eliters. They were all so friendly I just couldnít help but join on 6/6/2001. I soon dropped all other leagues. I became a loyal Eliter.
When did you first become a Staff Member at Eliters?
I had so much fun playing with Eliters, and with the TDs and of course Cheffie influencing me, I became a TD on 8/18/2001.
Tell us about your career history at Eliters.
My Elite history is more than I ever expected. I started out just a player, then to TD; they were having so much fun I wanted to join them. Then I went to GL and then I became the AA for Marlin. When he retired, I took his place as HA of Euchre Yahoo!. This is something I never even thought of when I joined EliteLeague almost 3 years ago. Without the support of Marlin, Cheffie, the players and the TDs this would never have happened.
Can you single out on aspect of Eliters that helped you to achieve all you have in Eliters?
The team work within my league.
What is it in your background that prepared you for all this?
As for being prepared for all this, I donít think I was. I just know I like to be around friendly honest people, and Elite was the league for me.
And what do you do, for Elite that makes use of all these skills?
Iím not the computer savviest person in the world, but I feel I try to deal with the problems that arise with an open and honest mind. I do not use favoritism, nor do I feel that punishment should be aired for everyone to view. I really enjoy being HA and feel that I have a great team to work with.
What do you do in your time away from Elite?
In real life lol well lets see I have 3 children, 9 grand children and 5 great grand children. During the summer, one week I take my 82 year old mom camping for a week, that is my special time with her. Then a week with grand kids, (now that is a job) then my husband and I try to get some quality time for fishing and camping. Other than that I have 3 large fish tanks with lots of new babies every month, and 2 cats, a hubby that wants supper and house that wants to be cleaned lol.
Wow that is a large family and a lot of things to do. How do you manage to find time for all that and Eliters?
Well they live down state, but I visit once a month. Canít stay away from mom and kids. Elite has become part of my family so to speak, and I take elite with me, I have computer set up at my moms so I can keep things going.
You are the example of a dedicated Eliter, for sure!
Thats me, filled a lot of empty hours for me. Its a great place to laugh, cry, have a little fun and meet nice people.
What would you tell a prospective member who is trying to choose between Eliters and other, similar leagues?
Comparing Elite to another league, well there is no comparison. Elite out ranks them all, more players, better management, best play site, competition is great, family site, easy to join and friendly players.
Well, that certainly sums it up, any last words for our readers?
Iíd just like to say thank you to all those that helped me get where I am today and thank all those for their support. And thank you ELITE for allowing me to be a member of such a wonderful league.
