Bingo (K-W Water Polo)

PrintBingo

Updated for season: 2018 - 2019

Why we do Bingo

The revenues from our Bingo sessions are included in our budget. They dramatically lower the fees that must be charged for each club member. The monies generated pay for pool time and tournament costs. To understand the significance, our treasurer has estimated that the Bingo fundraiser will raise approximately $14,000.00 this season.

KW Water Polo Club is responsible for Bingo sessions held every fourth Sunday from 8:25 am to 1:00 pm starting October 1st  to September 30th  of any given season.  This is a year round commitment which will require volunteers during the summer months. Each session is staffed by between 5 and 6 members.

It is essential that each member participate to make this fundraising commitment a success.

Member Volunteer Requirements

It is mandatory for each family to help at TWO Bingo sessions throughout the season for each athlete registered. Signup occurs during registration and if necessary, after. Due to the significant time already invested by these volunteers: Board members, parent coaches, team managers and Bingo captain(s) are not required to volunteer for Bingo sessions.

Once registration opens, a signup form for eligible dates will be listed under Fund Raising in the menu above. Click on the appropriate form and fill it out to volunteer for that date. Even though we can take up to 6, each form has a hard cap of 5 volunteers per session. If no more sessions are listed, or the hard cap has been reached, please contact [email protected] and list, in order, your top 5 preferred dates. We will distribute these volunteers across the remaining availability honouring your preference to the best of our ability.

Post-dated cheque(s), dated May 15, 2019, must be provided at registration, in the amount of $500 for each athlete, as security for completing the Bingo sessions.
It will not be cashed unless you do not complete your Bingo commitment by the last session in September 2019.

Tasks

The Bingo captain(s) will provide some basic information on Bingo responsibilities and will notify volunteers of their upcoming sessions throughout the year.  In the event you do not sign up on registration night the Bingo Coordinator will contact you to ensure you fulfill your volunteer requirement.      

General tasks at the Bingo include:

  • Ticket sales at the desk, handling cash, making change
  • Record keeping and cash handling for Rapid Fire Bingo
  • Running the floor to sell single game tickets, calling out Bingos, delivering winnings
  • Clean up after the session                       

Where:  K-W Gaming Centre, 501 Krug Street, Unit #101 Kitchener, Ontario N2B 1L3                                               

Alternative: Participation is key to the success of the Bingo fundraiser but the club understands there may be special circumstances. In the event a family is unable or unwilling to complete their Bingo volunteer requirement, the family can donate $250/Bingo session/athlete to the club in lieu of their participation.           

Contact: Feel free to contact anyone on the Board of Directors or the Bingo Coordinator at [email protected] with questions.
