John J. Morris Post 62

Bar Bingo in the Social Quarters & Bingo Hall.

Sundays from 1 pm to approx. 5 pm, AND Thursdays from 4 pm until approx. 8 pm.

You buy a Bingo card for $1 each (we provide the crayon). As our Master of Ceremonies calls out the numbers, you cross them off your card with our crayon. When you cross off all 5 spots, you win (or share) the prize after the winning numbers are confirmed. Every 5th game, there is a larger version (and larger payout…). There is almost always a jovial atmosphere. The game is supported each week by volunteers from the Auxiliary, Riders, SONs, or the Legion. On some days, a meal can also be purchased for a nominal fee. The current pot is over $9,400 as of 9 Nov 2020

Due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases, Thursday Bingo (NOT Bar Bingo) has been discontinued, and Saturday Bingo has been suspended until further notice! This is due,in part, to a lack of volunteers.

We are looking for Bingo Callers.  The Bingo Caller is like the Master of Ceremonies of the Bingo game. Bingo callers have a certain je-ne-sais-quoi. Although their role is "simply" to collect bingo balls and call them out so that people can daub their numbers on their bingo cards/sheets, their personalities always shine through the cards whether they're proclaming "B-2" or revealing the ball "O-62" (for Post 62), you can tell straight away if they have a sense of humor and confidence. Come on and give it a try. Our Bingo Manager, Vern Fry, will train you.

And, speaking of Bingo Managers : Sometime in the near future, our current Bingo Manager is retiring after hearing his 500,000th "Bingo". This person manages and directs the activities of the bingo functions on Thursdays, Saturdays & Sundays. This includes approving jackpots and payouts and ensures that all appropriate forms are completed. Again, Vern Fry will train you.
