    Many of our local clubs are doing the 52 hidden symbols game that the bingo card companies patterned after the Queen of Hearts game.

    It has been a life saver for our local FOE. The current board has 6 numbers remaining and the jackpot is $55k plus whatever they took in this week. We've actually increased membership because only members are eligible to play.

    A Legion post in the next county over lets anyone play. I heard their jackpot was over $100k
    I used to recruit for the NRA until they sold us down the river (again!) in Heller v. DC. See my auctions (if any) under username henryreilly

    Yeah, it's more like a friggin' STADIUM!!

    I bartended in a bar in college where we'd get to fire capacity every Friday and Saturday night. I think that was about 400 people...and that was a whole lot of people in a bar!!! I can't even imagine 17,000 people in a bar!!!!

    The town is Ansonia, Ohio, population about 1200, just a couple miles south of me. The crowd was so big they were parked solid clear out of town for 2-3 miles in each direction. The winner of the big prize got about 470K, then there were other prizes that brought the overall total to about 570K. They also donate a huge amount of money to charities.

    This is held at a small bar next to the railroad tracks that was recently purchased by the new owners and boy did they turn it around. The bar is filled to capacity, the parking lot is full of people. The gas station across the street is packed with so many people they have to shut down for the festivities every time they have a drawing. The winner was a young fellow from about 10 miles north of town. Quite a big deal here in the boonies! [:D]
