Feb. 2018 Event – BINGO

Yes! It’s BINGO day! On February 10th, the Goat Herd will be having its first ever BINGO event. This is a FUND RAISER for the club, as well as a fun event for ALL Goat Herd family members.

The date for this planned BINGO program is Saturday, Feb. 10, starting at 1:00Pm until about 4:00pm. The location is Larry’s Restaurant – that’s right, our club meeting place – and is open to all club member families. Frank Salerno will be the coordinator, and is seeking assistance from 2 or 3 others to help. The restaurant will be serving food items on a limited basis – hamburgers, fries, maybe melted cheese sandwiches, and ice cream and drinks. The only stipulation the restaurant has is a mandatory purchase of a food item by each individual. That’s because we are not being charged for use of the restaurant, but they need to make it monetarily worthwhile to be open for us.

At this point, we plan on BINGO participants purchasing individual BINGO cards for $1.00 each – remember, this is a club fund raiser. But we also have some really great prizes for winners of each game….for example, a box of See’s Candies, a Nike collapsible travel bag, a halogen desk lamp, maybe a pair of movie theatre tickets, and other items. Time allowed, we will probably play 8 games, BINGO patterns to be determined, and includes the last game of Blackout (not necessarily a 50/50 pot split). So now is the time to start preparing…go out and buy your ink daubers and start saving your dollar bills (and some extras for the mandatory food item purchase), come to Larry’s Restaurant for some Saturday afternoon fun, and come early – the games begin at 1:00pm, and you want to get there early, as there is seating for about 60-70 persons (family members include mom, dad, son, daughter, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, the ex…you know, the usual suspects!). We will have s Sign-up sheet for BINGO at the next club meeting so we can plan for the number of persons planning on attending. If you cannot be at the next club meeting but want to sign up for BINGO, send an e-mail to Frank Salerno at buglett67@comcast.net including the number of persons attending, and he will sign you up. Information in this publication may change, so check it periodically….for example, if we reach the seating limit by or at the next club meeting, we will post that information here.

Addendum: Bingo daubers can be purchased at most “Dollar” stores.
