A long, long time ago...back before the turn of
the century...way back in ‘97, Mr. Case was prospecting in these hills.. There
never was any gold here, but he had a right nice chunk of real estate so, after
the Christmas rush that year, he put a sign at the entrance and gave birth to
the Spades Team Ladder Room.
SweetThangFL and I were on our way to
an eBay auction when we dropped in to check it out. We immediately fell in love
with the ambiance of the place. The brightly painted walls, all the pretty
little tables lined up in neat little rows, a foursome of stupid but dependable
bots, and a gang of thugs called “The Servers” that would drop by and make you
lag or temporarily kick you off your table without warning.
We paid rent in that room for a couple years
before deciding we wanted our own place in the country. The zone was nice enough
to create a Team Ladder Room #2 so we packed up the truck and we moved over
here. On October 15th, 2001 the CampFire Spaders Team Ladder was created.
Well, we moseyed on down to Table 21 and staked
claim to our little piece of heaven. It isn’t ours exclusively, but it is ours
usually. I added a nice big kettle of beans in mid-2000 so the other campers
would have something to eat while waiting for their ‘up’ games in the other room
so we brought it along. We got ourselves a few dogs, a few tents, a few hundred
decks of cards, a dealer named George and a whole bunch of friends together to
form the team. We proudly call the place “Camp OAT” (the initials for OnlyAThang
We’ve made ourselves some mighty fine friends here
in our little corner of the www. Many are, like us, permanent residents. Many
drop in for a weekend run at the number one spot then move on. Whatever your
intentions, we hope you will enjoy your stay at our half-way house for Spades
addicts. While you are here please drop by Table 21 for a bowl of beans and
Consider yourself part of the family.
