Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I was a maintenance supervisor for 20 years, fire chief for 20 years, registered EMT, mayor of a small town for two terms and commissioner for three. Was born and raised on a farm, and I still have one today with everything on it.
How long have you played games online?
4 years now and I love it.
What do you like to do away from the computer?
See my kids and grandbabies, go fishing and shop for cars and others items that may be needed on the farm.
What is your preferred play site and why?
I have played lots of them, but I like Pogo best. There is not as much rudeness there as other sites I have played at.
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
I was playing Euchre one night with a crazy Canadian lady (germie3) in Pogo and she got me to join Eliters. That was about 28 months ago.
How did you pick your Eliters' ID (superss6)? Is this your one and only?
It was a nickname that I got when I did maintenance work, because I worked fast. The ss6 was added to get the account and SS are my initials.
What made you keep coming back to Eliters?
I had lots of fun, and the people who ran the tournaments were great, and the players were friendly. I am a people person, so it worked.
When did you become a TD, and what made you decide to do so?
I think it was February 2004. The reason was because I like to help others have fun and enjoyment after a long day in the big world.
What positions have you held in Eliters?
I started as most do as a JrTD, then TD. We then had a lot of TDs leave, so I bypassed SrTD, AGL, GL, went straight to the AA position, and then HA of Euchp where I am today.
If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?
That is a hard one, but I guess I would say my grandather, because he loved everyone and everything. I am alot like him; I try to give everything that someone needs.
What games do you play? And what is your favorite game and why?
I try to play them all; they are all good for me.
Have you learned any new games since being part of Eliters?
Yes, Backgammon and Crib.
What in your opinion is the best thing about Eliters?
In Eliters, it's the structure first, then the people I think for the most part. It is a great setup and then the great players and hosts make it work for all.
Your Trademark expression is WEEEEEEE. How did you get it, and what does it mean to you?
It was just an expression one night in a lobby session of chat I had done, and then it just stuck to me. It is my way of having fun.
What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live Event?
Hosting my First TOC as a TD. Winning my First TOC as a Player. Meeting so many Eliters at the Chicago Event last year was awesome (HaHa, Singlesoulie, debz, Elitersbarrel). They were so much fun.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?
I have run so many wrong spams in the lobby, and getting wrong players to a table, oh well, it happens sometimes to us all.
How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?
Grab a diet pepsi, take 8 steps to PC, hit Pogo and Greenland, smiling all the way.
Who is the one person that you can say has helped you the most here?
I can't name just one person here. I have had 4 or 5 great Eliters that have helped me, and I hope they all know who they are as I have great respect for them.
In your opinion, what makes Eliters different from other Leagues?
The people simply are the best in any league that I know.
If you had one wish, what would that be?
Someday, Eliters Pogo Director
When I grow up I want to be just like:
Just to be fair and honest.
If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?
Totally awesome group of people.
