AW!!!!! Spring has sprung – and we couldn’t be happier at the prospect of brighter days ahead!
As we move forward through the new COVID-19 protocols and as our bingos reopen, let’s all be mindful of what it takes for everyone to feel safe and comfortable during your bingo session. Ensure that your patrons adhere to the required guidelines; ensure that your staff continues with the protocols that make your patrons want to come back - again and again – and play bingo!
SPRING BINGO PATTERNS: Incorporate some fun spring bingo patterns in your next game!
SECOND CHANCE BINGO: How about a “Second Chance” bingo. Announce your coverall game and indicate that it is also a “Second Chance” bingo and that there will be 2 winners. Tell your patrons to be vigilant and ensure that they pay attention to the numbers called and that they dab their cards appropriately. Once the coverall winner has been determined, stop play and announce the “Second Chance” winner: by the process of elimination, ask that everyone stand then eliminate those with 23 numbers dabbed; then 22 numbers dabbed, etc. - until you get to the ‘lone’ person standing with the fewest numbers dabbed: there is your “Second Chance” winner who has now earned a complimentary buy-in package at your next bingo! You see, there are Second Chances!
MOTHER’S DAY: SUNDAY, MAY 9, 2021: FATHER’S DAY: SUNDAY, JUNE 20, 2021
Don’t forget you can always create a celebratory bingo event for Mother’s Day and then again for Father’s Day – and provide discounted packages for family members that accompany “Mom” and “Dad.” These may be great occasions for families separated by the challenges of 2020 to reunite and have some fun.
For those who have been able to stay close to family in 2020, this could be a continuation of all that they have come to love and enjoy about “family” and being together!
MEMORIAL DAY: MONDAY, MAY 31, 2021: Let’s not forget to celebrate our patriotism with this coming Memorial Day. Host an event and invite veterans and offer them a discounted buy-in package – as a thank you ‘for their service.’ Don’t hesitate to use our patriotic ink dabbers to make your event even more special.
