Bingo Bedlam – 4 August 2020

Eyes Down Everyone

Nothing, not even a pandemic, stops the Rotarians of Ayr enjoying themselves! More than 40 Rotarians and friends recently joined in the first, and possibly last, Zoom bingo game. Hosted by Allan McWilliam and Bob “The Balls” Gibson, resplendent in his caller suit and bow tie, the grey matter was stretched to breaking point as four corners, lines, and full houses were eagerly sought! Noisy excitement reached an early fever pitch as Neil Beattie won 125gm of Parkhead Balls and shock was the order of the day when Alex Thomson won a prize that was actually worth winning!
