Eliters Swarm the GrandPrix
What a weekend! 34 Great Eliters came together to meet, have some good competition, and have fun. All three were achieved at the Grand Prix Championships tournament in Chicago, IL September 17-19.
There were many firsts for Eliters - first time to meet friends, first time to play in a live card tournament, and for some (like me and my euchre partner, Air679) it was the first time to play euchre with "real" cards! It was a blast.
Eliters came to play Euchre, Hearts, Spades - and played they did. Out of over 200 players, Eliters did very well overall. They came in top tens in teams and individual competitions, won 'special' awards (including trophies and cash), and were a great example of what our site really is - family and fun.
I heard from many non-Eliters in Chicago who said, "I'm gonna check out your site" or "I've played there before - I need go back there." People can see the fun and smiles that we have and its genuine.
I was proud to be in Chicago with such a great fun group of people. It was Donavan's and my pleasure to host for you and we look forward to the next!
