More about inewfie1


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I was raised in a small community in Newfoundland, on a small farm. I love the outdoors. I am the 14th child of a family consisting of 5 girls and 10 boys. I am in a great relationship, have 2 grown children, boy and girl. I was once a respite worker but now just sit at home.

What do you like to do away from the computer?

Mostly reading, knitting, cross stitch, drawing, but my biggest project is my Genealogy research, which I have been working on since 1982.

How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

I joined Eliters on Oct. 26 of 2006 and became a TD in Dec. 05 of 2006. I was in a lobby where Erin (E911callagain) happened to be hosting. Somehow we struck up a conversation and she convinced me to join Eliters.(ty Erin)

How did you pick your Eliter's name? Is this your one and only?

That was a difficult feat, I wanted something that would show my Newfoundland heritage (very proud of that) I tried many names containing the word "newfie" and finally had to go with putting an i and 1 at the beginning and end. This is my original Eliters ID, before joining Eliters I was "bakeapple5", I got tired of that.

What is your preferred playsite and why?

I dont't really have a preferred site, but I do kind of lean towards pogo.

What made you keep coming back to Eliters?

Mostly the friendliness of the members, when I started it was just cribp for quite a while, the people there made me want to come back, it was like a party in there every time we played.

How long have you played games online?

About 8 - 10 years

What games do you play? And what is your favorite game and why?

I play just about everything Eliters has to offer and cannot say that I have a favorite, I enjoy every game I play.

Have you learned any new games since being a part of Eliters?

Yes quite a few, gin, euchre, spades, canasta, pool, touched on pino and backgammon (but terrible at those).

What positions have you held in Eliters and is there anything that you haven't done that

I started as TD in cribp then AGL, GL now am AA cribp and am very happy with my position, I was also an SFTD for nearly a year.

Who is the one person that you can say has helped you the most here.

I would have to say calcinci. In the past year she has helped me with many problems both in Eliters and outside of it. She is there when I need a shoulder or when I need advice. Next to cal I would say the whole cribp team has helped me in some way, they are great.

In your opinion, what makes Eliters different from other leagues?

It's fair gaming practices, family-like atmosphere. The members make you feel like you belong unlike other leagues I have been in (most no more than a week). If you have a problem they listen and that is very important in a league.

What in your opinion is the best thing about Eliters?

The people!

If you had one wish what would it be?

My lifetime wish has always been to visit Ireland, the homeland of all my ancestors. Some day it will happen.

If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?

It's a great league, you will find none better.

What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?

The day I became a TD. My first tourney was up, I was sooo nervous. Erin was on em and my daughter "newfienic" was here showing me what to do. whew lol

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

After the fact, the funniest thing would be the day I kept making mistakes in posting winners in cribp lounge, I got a lot of "ribbing" that day. lol

What is the most embarrassing thing, (that you can talk about of course).

Omg, that would be the day I was discussing a players infraction with cal, on yahoo messenger. I accidentally brought up that players im, typed the message and sent it. Wow, I thought, I can change my name, they won't know who I am .lol. I did wiggle my way out of it though by saying I was just getting someone elses opinion on the matter, since I was just a TD at the time. lol

If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?

Me, about 20 yrs ago.

You are stranded on a deserted island, no internet, no phone, no TV, walking along the beach, you come across...

Give me a bunch of Eliters and we can make a desert island a paradise.

What is your favorite book/author?

The book/series would be The Calder Series, I read it years ago and loved it. I want to read it again but can't find it anywhere.

What's your guiltiest pleasure?

Gotta be chocolate

When I grow up I want to be just like:

Don't wanna grow up, I see what happens to people when they grow up. Gonna skip it. lol

Any last words for our readers?

Live life to the fullest , enjoy every moment as if it were the last. One thing I have learned, never put off till tomorrow what you can do today!!!! Some of that enjoyment is waiting for you in Eliters gaming rooms, so be sure to make your daily stop.
