Discussion Items: General consensus is share information with Districts and assist Posts with Bingo license applications and the possibility of sharing this information via online format.
- Promotion of Bingo License: Share qualifications for license applications. Applicants must be able to pass background check with no felonies, extreme DUIs. Bingo license approval depends on these criteria.
- Possibility of Bingo and Slingo Funds to Support Post/Programs: Regular Bingo and Slingo is a clear path for financial gain to any post needing repairs or support of Legion program funds.
- Ideas for Bingo Machines to Help Post: Greg Mullally, Lynnx representative reports that 20 Bingo machines were inspected as of 10/26/2020 by the Arizona Department of Gaming. He states that Bingo Machines should be ready by November in all Legion Posts.
- Future Plans for Discussion at Convention: Plans to hold a discussion/seminar at Department Convention about filling out Bingo license applications. Also, to promote acceptance of Bingo in Legion Posts.
