Bingo Outlawed?????

HELLO MARSTON,

AROUND THAT TIME IN THE OLD PICTURE, THE PROVINCIAL

GOVERNMENT HAD OUTLAWED BINGO. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

NEEDED THE INCOME, PLUS THE GAMBLERS NEEDED A FIX.

TO GET AROUND THE LAW, BINGO BECAME ZINGO. THAT'S WHAT

IS ON THE POSTER, WHICH WAS HELD IN THE BASEMENT OR BACK OF

THE CHURCH.  IF THIS ISN'T TRUE IT SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD.

AFTER SO MANY YEARS OF FUDGING, TWISTING, AND OUTRIGHT

LYING, THE TRUTH SOUNDS LIKE FAIRYTALES.

Thanks Richard
