2016 NEWS / ANNOUNCEMENTS


December 1, 2016 — NO MATTER HOW YOU CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS, REMEMBER THAT CHARITY IS A REAL ASPECT OF ALL FULFILLED DREAMS!   Bingo is one of, if not the oldest forms of charitable fund-raising.  And December is a charitable time of year.  Just look around.  Everyone wants you to “feel the spirit of the season”.  If you already play Bingo, you know what charity means, because you support it every time you play.  You may play when a certain group is hosting a certain Session, or you might be happy knowing some group is supported when you’re at a Hall or Gaming Centre — or you might not care who benefits at all.  Be assured, every charitable or not-for-profit group who benefits when you play Bingo is appreciative.  It means they can continue to dream about helping others — which is a big and important dream, especially these days.

2016 also gives us all a little gift.  With Christmas falling on a Sunday this year, that means many of you will likely be enjoying an extra-long Holiday Break from work.  Twice this month, as we also enjoy celebrating New Year’s Eve. Even if you are not a regular Bingo Player, you can still get in on the action for the Holidays, as Special Bingo events will be popping up everywhere.

We also hope that you will all enjoy the end of the year in a safe and responsible manner.  We’re always remember a funny line from a famous comic (it may even have been George Carlin) … “Get yourself home safe.  Your family loves you.  Don’t ask me why.”   🙂

And if you’re looking for some extra special fun events to enjoy while at Bingo this December, check out some of these highlights …

Mississauga’s Delta Bingo has literally doubled down on their December events, offering their popular $28,000 “12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS” Cash Giveaway Draws (with min. $200 and up to $5,000 to win each Draw) AND their huge Friday & Saturday 7pm Event.  They also continue their popular “DOLLAR DAY” Special on every Wednesday Session.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE!

Oshawa’s Red Barn Bingo Auditorium will offer their unique version of “12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS”, complete with Big TV Giveaways and Bingo Gift Certificates.  You can save when you play with a $2 per Strip SPECIAL every Tuesday night.  Plus, there’s a FREE $1,000 Game to play in December.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE!

Burlington’s Bingo Connection offers their Special “12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS” promotion with multiple Draws at select Holiday Sessions.  And as always, you can save with $1 Books on four select weekly Sessions and enjoy electronic personal Bingo Verifier “TED” Specials CLICK HERE FOR MORE!

November 1, 2016 — WE REMEMBER ON NOVEMBER 11th (AND EVERY DAY)!   November may not have any stat holiday, but it does have one of the most important days in the year — REMEMBRANCE DAY!  Through each of our family histories, it is very probable that we have all had a family member serve in the military.  Let it be said, we have always appreciated this effort, commitment and sacrifices of soldiers, seamen, airmen, medical personnel, peace keepers and support groups (including youth and training personnel) who work hard to keep us safe and to represent Canada in the highest light.

We also hope you will look closer at some of the charitable and not-for-profit groups who raise funds through Bingo, including youth-oriented military training groups.

BINGO PLAYER MAGAZINE is also happy to celebrate our 14th Anniversary with our November ’16 issue.  While the troubled waters the Bingo industry in Ontario has experienced in recent years have calmed a little, we are proud to continue to do what we do best — talk about and share great Bingo and Gaming opportunities for Players and new Players.  Our website also continues to spread the word and attract visitors from Ontario and around the world.  We are very grateful to have the undeniable support of the Sponsors and Charitable Groups in those Halls that value such feedback from such amazing people.

February 21, 2016 — A PASSING OF AN INDUSTRY GIANT…   It was just announced on The Second City’s website that Mr. Len Stuart has sadly passed away.

len_stuart_007Mr. Stuart has long been a part of the Bingo industry in Ontario, Canada and around the world.  His involvement with Bingo Halls, like the Boardwalk Entertainment Group and the Bingo Country chain (which, in the early 2000’s, had over 40 locations) is unequaled and unparalleled.  He was also involved as an Owner of Bazaar & Novelty at several points in his career.  His brothers also work in the Bingo and Gaming industry.

Mr. Stuart was also involved with The Second City, including the SCTV Network.  If you’ve ever seen the opening of the show, it’s Len’s hand that signals to go to air, just before the opening credits finish.

LEN_STUART___sctv-goThese are just a few of Len’s accomplishments, and there are so many more.  Always a busy man, it was a pleasure to meet him in 2002, even if only for a few moments.  A few years later, we met again at a Second City Alumni Week event, which featured some of the SCTV cast re-uniting on stage.

Andrew Alexander, CEO/Executive Producer of the Second City wrote, “I am very sad to announce the passing of my close friend, business partner and co-owner of The Second City, Len Stuart. He died peacefully while surrounded by his family and friends after a short illness.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Len has been the co-chairman and co-owner of The Second City Inc. since 1978. Over the course of four decades, Len has helped support the company through many defining challenges, including the most critical initial financing of the first seven episodes of SCTV. 185 episodes later, SCTV went on to become a seminal TV show garnering 13 Emmy Nominations and winning two. Len was thrilled with the current expansion of the Chicago Second City Training Center and The Harold Ramis Film School and recognized the importance that this initiative would mean to young actors and future filmmakers.

He was a brilliant entrepreneur, loving father and loyal friend. He will be greatly missed.”

February 1, 2016 — IT’S A GREAT TIME TO WARM UP TO BINGO!   It’s still trying to be winter in most of Ontario and, sometimes, in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), it’s been downright balmy.  This also means it’s easier to get out and about, especially to play your favourite Games.  Thank you for playing Bingo when you can.

And even if the Groundhog decides there’s more winter ahead, in a few weeks it will be a big weekend in Ontario with VALENTINE’S DAY on Sunday, the 14th — and FAMILY DAY on Monday, the 15th.  For many of you, it will mean VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIALS and an extra chance to play on the Monday.
