First Tuesday Bingo

Well, I was lucky to be in the area last night to experience my first ever BINGO game. The doors opened at 6:00. It was a friendly group and Mary Helen (Board treasurer) loaned me a dauber so I haven't yet had to commit to buying one.

$11 bought me all the cards for the night's games. It seemed a little overwhelming but Mary Helen explained how it worked and I had no problems. I won one game, along with another person so we split the pot and took home $1 each. The other table did much better with most of the wins. They had a whole bingo-sphere of good luck charms flanked by rows of daubers.

The "BINGO-sphere" and Mary Helen's banana bread and Joshua Treets ice cream.
The big pots went unclaimed though everyone was close to winning.

Before the last big game we broke for cake and ice cream. Mary Helen made banana bread and Joshua Treets donated the ice cream. At $1 it was a bargain. I had mango sherbet.

It was fun to see everyone, and Patrick (Board VP and First Saturday Breakfast waiter) did an excellent job reading the numbers.
