May 1st

Hello BINGO Players,


We started out May with an eager crowd of 74 players trying to win the progressive jackpots. The cookies for players were also a big hit as the cookie plates were cleaned off in a matter of minutes. We will have cookies all through May in recognition of Mothers Day. We really appreciate all of our regular players and the new players we are getting each week. We hope the new players are having a fun experience and make Elks Bingo a regular Thursday fun night.

Progressive games were not won yet, so May 8 progressive game 15 (Blue Special) will be at 57 numbers for $250 and progressive game 32 (Yellow Special) will be at 53 numbers for $500. Our Bonanza blackout game paid $144. Remember our 4 Early Bird games pay $95 each and our 10 Regular games pay $90 each.

Thank you all for your warm welcome to Kathleen Krahmer, who is in training to be one of our callers. She had been a caller a few years back and picked up the operation of our current bingo equipment quickly. We look forward to her calling a complete session in the near future.

We are reviewing our new program and plan to make a few minor changes soon to get our session duration back to about 3 1/2 hours to finish at 9:30 PM. Overall response to the new program has been positive but it is taking a little more time than the old program. We plan to keep the new features but modify a few games and move the second break to after the Orange Special game.

Remember that we have food, beverages and bar service during the Bingo session.Please do not bring any outside food, beverages or containers into the Bingo hall.

We had a Queen crowned and she received $6 for her lucky numbers called during the night.

Invite your friends and family to come and enjoy the fun at Bingo. Remember our minimum buy-in is only $10 and you can get a Starter Pack for $21 that includes 28 games. Four Speed games with a 60/40 percentage payout, played at the beginning of the session at 6 PM, can be purchased for an extra $4.

Remember you get a free dauber when your birthday falls in the current bingo week (Sun – Sat), id is required for verification.

Ink daubers are required for all players. No other form of marking sheets is valid. Of course we have daubers for sale in a variety of colors for $1.25, $1.50 & $1.75.

Doors open at 4:30 PM so you can come and get settled in and order some food before we start at 6 PM.
