At our May meeting a motion was made and seconded to purchase new bingo equipment to replace the currently outdated Bingo equipment. The current equipment is getting very old, and in some cases, unrepairable. There have been many instances where bingo has had to be stopped during play due to malfunctions in the old equipment. The motion made and seconded to purchase the new equipment at no more than an amount of up to $10,000.
