Change to BINGO OPERATIONS
Effective 3 Mar, Bingo will return to its previous, standard schedule. Thanks to additional volunteers, we are planning to operate on both Wednesdays and Fridays once again. If you are able to volunteer, we would love to have your help; we will be putting in place additional safety precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID to include Physical barriers (Plexiglas) and we will be requiring the wearing of masks for all Workers and Bingo customers, and will also be sanitizing the Post before each Bingo session. As most of you know, our Bingo is the main source of income to not only pay our bills each month but also fund the numerous American Legion Programs that our Post is so active in.
BINGO is played every Wednesday and Friday nights at 6:00 p.m with the Post doors opening at ~2:00pm, pull tab sales begin at 4:00 pm. Everyone must have an admission card and capacity is currently limited to 61 players - first come, first served. A person of any age may play Bingo games. Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Only persons 18 years of age or older may play "pull tab" games. (See http://law.lis.virginia.gov/admincode/title11/agency15/chapter40/section50/.)

PLEASE NOTE: WHILE THE KITCHEN IS CLOSED, FOOD IS PERMITTED - HOWEVER, all food must be consumed prior to the start of regular BINGO, and players are required to wear a mask/face shield covering the nose and mouth at all times. We have a vending machine for beverages.
PLEASE NOTE: Our address is 1141 Mountain View Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22406.
Individual games pay $100 each with a Jackpot game of $1,000 at the end of each session. Books start out at $18. There are also specialty games - Sputnik and Lucky 7 - that have progressive jackpots. You can support your Post either as a volunteer or a player - but not both - at either session.
As a reminder, BINGO and the Post are now Smoke Free!
