Player Tributes: Belle Pays Tribute to Melanie!

Posted by

Today we feature Melanie, from winners club 4, who appears to be exactly the kind of co-leader any Club would absolutely love to have. Belle definitely puts together a fitting tribute to a remarkable player!

1. What is your name?


2. What is the name of the person deserving recognition?


3. How do you know Melanie?

I stumbled upon this game in 2020 when I was sick with Covid. I didn’t know what I was doing and found many aspects confusing. I joined a team, Winners Club 4, and Melanie was one of the leaders of the team. She answered all my dumb questions and helped me learn the ins and outs of the game/quests/competitions/etc. Since then, we’ve grown as teammates and friends.

4. Why do you feel she deserves recognition?

Melanie has been a great leader to our team, building and encouraging unity and growth. And she’s done it despite multiple obstacles she has faced in her personal life!

5. If you were at an awards show, handing Melanie a “Golden Tiki” for their amazing work as a Solitaire TriPeaks player, what would you say?

“Good evening, my fellow Tribute Hunters! Tonight we are recognizing Player Tributes who exceed our expectations in gameplay and community building. Tonight’s Golden Tiki nominee, Melanie, has been a solid foundation in our ever-changing group. Members may come and go, but she has been steadfast and dedicated to building a strong team! Melanie strives to be fair as she maintains the team expectations, she encourages everyone to push further and work a little harder than before, and she does this all while caring about our personal lives. It is a true honor to play beside Melanie and I am thrilled to present the Golden Tiki award to her!”

6. And what joke would you tell?

How does the butcher introduce his wife? “Meet Patty!” Hahaha

7. If you could have Melanie visit you for a day, where would you take them and what would you do?

We have talked about visiting each other if I ever go to Texas or she ever comes to Virginia. There’s a lot to see where I live, but I think that I would pack a lunch and head down Skyline Drive, stopping to admire the beautiful views, enjoy a picnic, and maybe play a few games of Solitaire TriPeaks!

We would end up at Luray Caverns and have fun exploring that! Then on the way home, we would stop by Route 11 Chips for some fresh potato chips and Sugar Creek Ice Cream! If we wanted to keep adventuring, then we could go on a ghost tour in Winchester to end the day.

8. What else do you know about her?

Melanie is a 47 year old interior decorator, dating Este. They live in Texas and true to Texas style, they enjoy smoking meats and then eating the delicious food they make! Melanie took French in school for 5 years, but hasn’t retained it since. She has traveled all over the US and Europe but has never been to Virginia (yet!).

9. Are you both in the same TriPeaks Club? If so, which one?

Winners Club 4

10. Any final words you’d like to share with the rest of the Solitaire TriPeaks Community?

Being kind is free and you truly don’t know who or how you will impact someone by being nice….so, spread kindness and so what friendship may develop from it!! You won’t regret it…
