As we wrap up our Club Leader Spotlight series this round, we are introduced to Stacey, aka “Wilbur”, who took over the reins from Caro when she had some “life stuff” that needed her attention. They’ve just celebrated their first year in the Legend League!
1. What is the name of your Club, what league are you in?
We are the DIAMOND DOGS and as of the beginning of September, we are celebrating one consecutive year in the Legend League! 🎉
2. No easy feat! Congratulations! Who is your Club Leader?
Wilbur aka Stacey.
3. How long has the Club been around?
The team was started March 2022. We grew pretty quickly and were solid in Diamond League a while. At the end of last summer, we saw a good opportunity to move up a league with a little effort, and decided to go for it once, you know, do it for the story. We hadn’t planned on playing Legend long term, and expected to drop back down after one week of glory. Turns out Tiki Gods had other plans because for some reason we’re still up here. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
4. Has Stacey been the Club Leader since the start?
I was the founding leader of the team. When life knocked me down this summer, I asked Stacey to step up.
5. Sweet! What makes her so special?
Stacey is a seasoned player, and as a result she knows better than to assume she always knows best. Our team is strong because we’re willing to learn from each other to inform our personal play styles, rather than all playing one singular “correct” way. Stacey’s knowledge of the game has been critical in helping new and experienced members alike better understand how the game is scored. In legend, that’s make or break.
6. How does Stacey motivate the Club?
Stacey congratulates us when we post that we’ve maxed Quest progress, but she also commends those who have made personal progress, whether it’s a new high score or a staggering Red Star count. She motivates us by fostering an environment where social comparison leads to celebrating each others’ achievements.
7. If your Club could sing her a song, what song would you choose?
I would sing her Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera) by Doris Day because it’s a good reminder to relax and have fun!
8. If Stacey were a tree, what kind of tree would she be?
A fir tree—like the evergreen, Stacey plays hard year round. Plus, she loves Christmas so much that she has a tree for every room.
9. Wow! That is dedication! What’s a special talent that she has that makes it fun to be in this Club?
She makes us laugh! A good sense of humor goes a long way when communicating primarily over text.
10. And finally, what have you learned from this particular Diamond Dog?
I learned that I was sometimes too quick to judge—Stacey encouraged me to give people the benefit of the doubt more often. I also learned how to pay attention to the cards when clearing a tableau, which levels would have a higher payout from just the first card pulled, and when to use a streak doubler to score higher.
