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.

  1. 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.
