I've returned from my long trip to the Elks Lodge. The idea was to be sure all the bingo equipment still worked like it was supposed to. There's no way we wanted to wait until 5 minutes before we were to begin, only to find out the board didn't work correctly. We would all be strung up from the nearest pole.
Bingo-ers are serious about their craft and their superstitions. You better not let one tiny thing interfere with their throwing money away, or maybe winning a few hundred dollars.
Surprisingly, after a few jiggles of the wiring and reprogramming two of the five televisions, we were back in business. I checked out both cash registers and they seemed fine. That's when it all went downhill.
