Dear Bingo Players,

Alaska state law requires bingo games to break even. For the past year, we have not sold enough packets and sheets to match the prizes on our schedule of games. We regret to inform you that we must raise prizes to comply with gaming laws. If we continue our current level of loss, we will not be able to resume bingo any longer.

To operate bingo we have come up with a new price structure. The prices of Black out and Early Bird sheets will stay the same. The Birthday Club will not change. If we our ability to keep Bingo open, we will continue to have Special Bingo nights from time to time. The new prices will come into effect Sunday, January 19, 2013.

The new pricing is as follows:
Full Packet $30 New
Half-Packet $15 New
Game 6 Sheet $2 New
Early Bird Sheet $2 New
Single Sheets $2 New
Blackout Sheet $3 (one) Same
Blackout Sheet $5 (two) Same
