Welcome to Highlowaha's Second Virtual Party.  Tonight, featuring... Pirate Bingo.  

Thank you for joining us and for helping Highlowaha raise money to support the family we adopted this holiday season. We are a blog that helps community by being creative and exemplifying what it means to "be in community."  That's what I love about who we are and what we do each day.

I won't dilly dally. We'll commence with the evening of fun.  First an overview, then some reminders about the rules of play.  Overview...

Round #1
  • Wait for first Bingo Ball to be announced.  A new number will be announced every 30 seconds.
  • The first person to to successfully achieve BINGO (a complete line across, down, or horizontally) must immediately post the word, "BINGO" along with the number of the winning card (if you bought more than one) and your winning numbers.
  • I will cross reference with my copy of your card
  • Once verified, the winner will select a prize from the terrific "table of prizes."
Round #2.  
  • Repeat Bingo rules from Round #1
  • Winner from Round #2 will have the choice to either steal the prize from Round #1 winner OR to select a prize from the "table of prizes."  Once a prize is stolen three times, it is out of play and remains with whomever got his/her hands on it last.
Round #3.  
  • Repeat rules from Round #2.
