Club Spotlight: PantherPanthere

Posted by

You never know what’s going to end up in your In-Box in this job, and certainly, I wasn’t expecting to crack up so much, but when you’ve got the Club’s “Wise Guy” sending in the nomination, well then… 

  1. What is the name of your Club and who is your Club Leader? Our Club’s name is PantherPanthère, and our leader is, yep you guessed it, “I am Panther”. It is a French/English group I joined a few months ago and the only French I know so far is “oui” and “bonjour”, which I knew before joining.
  2. And who is your Club Co Leader? Our beloved leader is not only obsessed with, big black, man-eating cats, she’s also obsessed with making her members feel welcome when they are good players, so at the present time we currently have 14 CoLeaders, yeah I know, it’s more than half, bless her kind heart.
  3. How long has your Club been around?“I am Panther” started the Club earlier this year.
  4. What’s your motto? Our motto is a typical, boring statement of the requirements with the words francais+english at the end. When I first became CoLeader I changed it to say “35000 or we come to your house and whip you with wet noodles!” She let it stay for a few days.
  5. What do you talk about in the Chat Channel? In chat most players notify the Club when they have completed their part of the Club quest, so we know they’re not responsible when we don’t get the fabulously pathetic reward, we also chat about anything and everything else, although I only understand some of it unless Linda translates for me, because I can’t copy/paste and don’t usually care enough to type it into my laptop.
  6. What are some things you all have in common? What we all have in common is that half of us don’t know what the other half is talking about, and vice versa.
  7. How would you describe your strategy? When I first joined, I was the top player in points, so I suggested that next week’s top point maker get to pick the perk order to give the team some initiative, and because I wanted 6 to be first, (gotta love that gold Tiki card, right?) Boy did I get a butt reaming, she came around later though, 6 is the second after 1, because some other player went crying to the boss lady, so she put the awesomely almost useless ridiculous perk 1 in the first place. It might be an ocd thing about needing to start off the beginning of the week with the appropriate number, who knows
  8. Who’s the hardest working Club Member? The hardest working point-wise is definitely Temazarine, they get more than double the required goal every week. The other hardest working is Linda, she speaks both languages so she translates better than any app, and she keeps the peace by putting me in my place when I get carried away with picking on other players.
  9. Who’s the funniest?The funniest, gee IDK, who could it be? COULD IT BE ME?¿! Nah, it’s actually a tie between me and Linda, we have excellent repertoire (Is that the right word?). Sometimes another player joins in on the tomfoolery, yet it’s a bit difficult to comprehend our meaning because of the language barrier, so they don’t get the joke. Our leader doesn’t know why we think certain things we say are funny, and occasionally I get nasty with my dark sense of humor, so feelings do get hurt. (I really am sorry Gaga).
  10. Is there something you’d like to say to the Solitaire TriPeaks Community? To the TriPeaks community there is only one thing to say, GET A LIFE!
