Virtual Easter Events & More
by Holly Houser, Ocean Reef Editorial Assistant
In this time of social distancing, Members are trying to find new and creative ways to have fun and fill their time at home. To help you do that, the Club is introducing complimentary Virtual Bingo to be played at 7 p.m. Friday, April 10 and Friday, April 17.
How will this work?
Over the past few weeks, Zoom has become a staple for many as a way to connect socially with friends and family that can’t be visited in person. During Virtual Bingo, participants will go to Zoom and enter the meeting ID: 496-208-092. Once you’ve joined, the meeting host, Member Events Manager Kyle Landers, will be there to go over the rules and Bingo will commence! The host will read off a letter and a number and those participating from home will fill out their Bingo cards. When someone gets Bingo, they will use Zoom’s “raise hand” feature, read off their numbers, and collect their prize.
How do I get my Bingo cards?
Getting your Bingo cards is simple! There will be three rounds of Bingo, each with a different corresponding Bingo card. You can get your different cards by ordering dinner takeout or delivery from any of the open Ocean Reef outlets the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday leading up to Virtual Bingo night. By ordering on Tuesday, you will receive the Bingo card for Round 1. Then on Wednesday, you’ll receive the Bingo card for Round 2 and on Thursday, you’ll receive the Bingo card for Round 3. Bingo boards are also available in the Membership Office.
