To the degree that you can move forward with some semblance of a safe gathering, given the ongoing COVID-19 concerns, following are some ideas to perk up your winter months’ bingo events. But remember: your health and safety and that of your patrons are most important so please adhere to local/state/tribal/territorial guidelines that may be in place relative to COVID-19 protocols.
Whether or not “winter” is a favorite time of year for you and whether or not you face the challenges of snow and cold weather, why not embrace winter activities: both outdoor and indoor. Here are some suggestions as to how you can liven up your indoor winter bingo events. After all, winter ‘must go on’!
Say it ain’t snow! Ah, but it is - so why not embrace the season! Try some of the following patterns to ‘spice’ up your winter bingo sessions!
Plan now for your Valentine's Day Bingo Event!
Check out the assortment of pink, purple, & red ink dabbers from our website and create a “Pretty in Pink/Purple/Red” themed night – with our colorful ink dabbers and complimentary cased paper! You might even ask your guests, willing to participate, to dress up in their most “pink/purple/red threads” creations – and award a prize, by round of applause, to the participant whose outfit draws the biggest round of applause. And of course, keep your patrons coming back by awarding the winner a free buy-in package at a future bingo!
How about some Valentine’s Day bingo patterns! Tap into a local business to see if they would provide a prize: a box of Valentine’s Day chocolates/a gift certificate for dinner for two at a local bistro/restaurant! A great way to promote local businesses!
Don't forget St. Patty's Day! Take a look at our 2022 offering!
Arrow's St. Patty's Day bingo ink markers make for a great fun filled St. Patty’s Day bingo event!
Check out our ‘green’ cased paper which can be used along with some themed bingo patterns for St. Patty’s Day specials to liven up your St. Patty’s day bingo event!
Use your imagination: announce a costume competition ahead of time and award a free buy-in to the best dressed “Irish-clad lad/lassie” of the evening – by round of applause. Again, keep your patrons coming back by awarding a free buy in package at a future bingo!
Our health and safety is most important during these uncertain COVID-19 times. Remember to promote healthy behaviors and maintain healthy environments to reduce risk when large events and gatherings are held.
If COVID-19 restrictions are such that you cannot host your bingo event for the time being, make sure that your patrons know that things have been delayed by posting notices on the door of your venue and also keep them apprised of ongoing developments via phone texts/social media. Bingo will return! Remember: we will get through this – together! It is also important that we have a healthy 2022!
