Fun Casino & Bingo Event

Saturday, February 10, 2024

6pm - 9pm

Ballroom and Social Hall

Back by popular demand, the pickleball club is joining the tennis club and co-hosting an evening of simulated casino & bingo fun that was a park favorite several years ago.

Participants receive 500 chips they can “bet” at fairly realistic roulette, craps or blackjack tables or try to out-wit their competition in a game of Texas Hold-Em.  If your game of choice is bingo you can use your chips to buy-in for that game as well.

The event is just for fun, you can’t win real money – BUT chips remaining when a participant decides to ‘cash out’ can be traded in for raffle tickets towards a host of very nice prizes, including several TVs, tablets, Amazon Echos, Ring security devices, wine baskets, gift cards, etc.  The more chips you cash in the more raffle tickets you receive.

The event is limited to 300 people ($25 per person) with any profits after expenses being returned to the co-hosting clubs. You won’t be able to buy tickets from the Activities Office until January, but pickleball and tennis club members can purchase tickets in advance from their clubWe will have a table set up during the Christmas Celebration party on December 9th and at the Club Expo on January 6th for anyone who wants to purchase tickets.  Early purchase is highly recommended.  The Activities Office will sell the remaining tickets beginning January 15 and they anticipate this event will sell out quickly.

Groups 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 Fun Tournament – Saturday, March 14  CANCELLED

In view of the ever evolving COVID situation the Executive has decided the prudent thing to do is cancel the March 14th Fun Tournament.  The courts are still open for All Play but there will not be an organized tournament.  It is disappointing to have to take this action but let’s all look forward to lots of Pickling over the summer then bringing our passion for the game back to Silveridge next season.
