B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O and “Bingo” was his name !

Hey All,

I hoped you enjoy the Bingo Video….the song brings back memories and although it lasts almost as long as the 4 hours of Bingo that I played this evening…consider the video to be your workout it you follow along.  I might even take the video to the gym tomorrow and incorporate it into my workout. The Bingo session that I participated in was held at the Tides Club right on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean and it is owned and run by Patrick Air Force Base.  I joined the club there yesterday and they have bingo every Wednesday evening, so I thought I would give it a try.  Prior to the start of Bingo, they offer a complementary (free) dinner buffet for club members.  I was impressed with the spread of food which included a salad, soup, 4 vegetables (broccoli, corn, beans, mashed potatoes), 3 meats (chicken, pork and beef), dinner rolls, blueberry cobbler, coffee and iced tea.  The cost for Bingo was a bit steeper than I expected ($ 45), but they give you a bunch of cards and there are about 20-25 games played with prizes running anywhere from $ 50 to $ 1,000 per game.  So, I guess if you win at least one of the games, the winnings easily paid for your cost.  Naturally, because, I generally am not very lucky…..I ended up finishing the night without winning a thing, but I did have fun and will certainly do it again,  It was a challenge keeping up with the announcer as I was managing 12 separate cards all at one time for each game.  So, you definitely have to stay on top of things and not get sleepy or you may miss out.  Well I guess that ‘s about all for now as it is getting late and I have to get some sleep.  I want to try to go to the gym a little earlier than usual tomorrow so I can do a few errands afterwards and then come back and mow the grass around my recreational vehicle. Yes, even though I’m living in an RV, I still do manage to do some yardwork as it makes things a bit more pleasant me.  Good night everyone and pleasant dreams !

  1. Our local senior center offered bingo to raise funds for Meals on Wheels. I found that I’m highly competitive when I play bingo and the sometimes mindless chatter of the bingo caller irritated me a lot, particularly when there was ONE number I needed….but your version (with what sounds like a really good dinner provided) sounds LOVELY. Maybe Utah needs to adopt that sort of activity.
