On Halloween, we focus our attention to Active Volcanos! Which, if you’ve ever been near one, can be pretty scary! But fear is not what drives this team. To quote the Team Leader, Jan, from her initial inquiry about becoming the focus for the Club Spotlight: “We have married folks, in-laws, (and maybe even unknown outlaws), technologists, managers, medical professionals, new moms, old moms, retirees, quilters, cooks, chatty folks, quiet folks, but most importantly, empathetic folks.” Read on…
1. Who is your Club Organizer?
2. And who is your Club Co Organizer?
Celia. Although not formally announced as such, she keeps everyone moving forward and updated in quests and perk status.
3. How long has your Club been around?
4. What’s your motto?
“GO ACTIVE!” and
“Beep beep! Pull to right so I may pass you!”
5. If you were to open your Chat Channel to the public, what sorts of things what might we find you discussing?
Well, you would see poking joking banter between most of us. JR would be talking about how his hamstring is keeping him from reaching the top slot of the tribe’s mountain, and Lee Ann would be jokingly chiding him as she “looks down from 1st place” at him. Michelle would be asking how we are, and Toni & Tammy (twin sisters) would be checking in. We’d all be talking about our kids, work, quilting, trips to be taken, and Perk events to be won. You’d also so a lot of “lol” and :-)’s. Oh and in my chats, you’d see a ton of typos!
6. What are some things you all have in common?
JR & Toni, Jim & Tammy, Jan & Michael are husband and wife. We love the game, but we place priority on family, health and work first. We all believe communication is crucial to cohesiveness and that working as a team together is the only way to go. We all enjoy laughter and playtime, and we are all kind and empathetic to each other. That makes the whole team enjoyable as can be!
7. How would you describe your strategy?
Jan is lead, but she takes votes weekly because everyone’s input matters! Our strategy is to work together in the same Perk box, always. To let each other know if something will impede play so the team can adjust, and share coins as much as possible.
8. Who’s the hardest working Club Member?
Lee Ann was the first member to reach the 1 million Club points earned mark. She is always in the top 3. Michelle, HJ, JR, Celia, Lisa, Toni Cindy, Jeryl – they’ve all see the top side of our “Tiki Mountain”. But the person we see online working it most… it’s currently a toss up between Michelle and Celia. Seems like one of them is always there. We are all a great team and I know this because we have an incredibly low turnover rate. You don’t leave something this good, you just don’t. Hard working, good and fun folks; that’s who we are.
9. Who’s the funniest?
Toss up again. JR makes everyone laugh whenever he is online. Jan has been known to “sing aloud” in chat when no one is online, so we come into jokes and song lyrics the next morning. Jan and JR once had a “Tiki Throwdown” challenge where we noted their scores, and then had until the end of the event to play. The person with the biggest point gain would be the winner, and the loser had to post on Facebook either “JR is the King!” or “Jan is the Queen!”. Everyone logged in and watched/played while the throwdown went down. Cheers and tons of laughs from all who logged in.
10. Is there something you’d like to say to the Solitaire TriPeaks Community? If so, what?
Be kind to each other, communicate and care, and when someone learns the secret to winning a million from the Treasure Shrine Jackpot (which btw, Michael in our club was a Million coin winner!), Let us know!
