Bingos are a fundraising opportunity for current members with payouts applied directly to their account. Reminder, you must be registered for the current swim season. If you choose NOT to sign up for bingos, that is also fine. Keep in mind we have over 45 bingos per season, and we need our members to volunteer for these shifts throughout the entire season to ensure this opportunity is successful! YOUR help is greatly appreciated and we are happy to support your account every time a shift is completed.

There are new protocols at the BINGO BARN due to Covid-19; this includes wearing a mask- please provide your own when attending your bingo shift. Hand sanitizer is provided to you at the location, and any other measures in place are highlighted in the reminder emails. Be prepared that a bingo event can be cancelled at a moments notice, and the Bingo Coordinator will notify you if this indeed happens, as quickly as possible. If you display ANY symptoms of illness, please do not attend the bingo event you are scheduled for (the Bingo Coordinator, Chair, and AGLC Advisor reserve the right to send anyone home who display any symptoms). 

Important Information: 

1. Release dates for the 20-21 season are as follows:

FALL BINGOS (September, October, November, December) - released September 4th, 9 pm     

WINTER BINGOS (January, February, March)- released November 5th, 9 pm      

SPRING BINGOS (April, May, June) - released February 4th, 9 pm 

2. In an effort to allow for MORE members to benefit from bingo's, we will only allow for ONE member per family to initially sign up for each event. The Bingo Coordinator will monitor the sign ups, and if necessary, will release this restriction with notice to our members. Due to COVID-19, only 9 members are required at each bingo event (this is reduced from last season).  

3. When you choose your job in JOB SIGNUP please be aware that you will stick to this role for the length of the event; as well, please do not assume "first come, first serve" for specific jobs. It is at the discretion of the BINGO COORDINATOR and/or CHAIR to determine who will be slotted into specific roles once they have consulted with the AGLC Advisor on shift. If you have a family member working your shift for you, please provide their name and phone number in the job signup section. 

4. If a member fails to comply with these basic rules, we will be following a TWO STRIKE rule. The first strike a written warning to the member (including the Bingo Coordinator and Club Manager) outlining any infraction. The second strike resulting in a ban of all bingo's for the current season. 

Shifts include ChairController, Money RunnerPaymasterVerifier and Sellers. If you are BRAND new to bingo, SELLER shifts are the easiest position to start with. Chair and Controller are typically reserved for those who have more experience with bingos. You must be 18 years or older to work a bingo, as per the AGLC rules. As usual, do not hesitate to contact the bingo coordinator if you have any questions regarding bingo shifts and their descriptions. 

SINGLE bingos will payout $75.00 towards your account.

DOUBLE bingos will payout $150.00 towards your account.

Reminder:  Bingo's are for registered competive members only (OW, JAG Blue & Gold, Jr & Sr Championship, and Jr & Sr Performance).

Payouts will be credited to member accounts by the 15th of the following month. For example, if you work 4 SINGLE shifts for the month of April, your account will be credited $300.00 by May 15th. Please note: THERE WILL BE NO CHEQUES WRITTEN FOR PAYOUTS. 

 

*** Once you sign up for a bingo, please add this date and shift to your calendar. You will receive a reminder email from the Bingo Coordinator within the week of the bingo, but it is ultimately YOUR responsibility to show up to your assigned shift. AGLC rules declare that we must have all volunteers show up on time and ready to work! You must be 18 years or older the work at the Bingo Barn. Volunteers who repeatedly show up late or miss their shifts will be documented and restricted from bingos, at the Club management’s discretion. ***

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR A BINGO

#1:  Review the dates above on when BINGOS will be released; they will be released in THREE seasons throughout the year (FALL, WINTER, SPRING).  Please keep in mind that we have bingos until the end of June so if you don’t get in on the first attempt there will be many opportunities all season. Keep checking back as well as certain positions come available randomly. 

#2: When you want to sign up, simply log into your Cascade account. On the home page, look half way down the page and you will see two tabs under EVENTS, click on BINGO/OFFICIATING/OTHER.  There you will see the list of bingo's that have been posted. Some are evenings, some afternoons, and we also have DOUBLES – make sure you review the time of day they are offered and the length of time you are expected to stay (do NOT assume you will be allowed to leave early at a bingo shift) – does it fit your schedule? Then proceed to the next step…. 

#3: Click on the JOB SIGN UP  link on the bingo you are interested in signing up for.  

#4: Click on the job/position you want to sign up for and you will be prompted to enter your name.  Make sure to click SAVE and you should see your name attached to the position if you were successful. If you have a family member or friend OTHER THAN YOU doing the bingo (yes, you are allowed to do that) – please write THEIR name in the text box that comes up. Although your name will be attached to the bingo, it allows the coordinator to know who is actually going to show up. 

#5: ALL bingos are completed at the BINGO BARN in the NE, http://www.bingobarn.ca

ADDRESS: #10, 1107 33rd St NE, Calgary, Alberta T2A 6T2 (attached to the Army and Navy store)
