SQ Bingo – Monday 1.20.2020

Thanks for all who came out this week. Good attendance is all we need to keep this BINGO party going! We rotate our BINGO Hosts. Tom, Mike, and Travis do a great job. Come join us!

We are experimenting with Bar Bingo in the Social Quarters. We are trying to host this most Monday evenings from 6:00-8:00. This is not a traditional paid Bingo game with cash prizes, and it’s not open to the public. But for our members, we make it fun, and we do have prizes we think you’ll like.
