Parking Lot Bingo Returns to Coon Rapids Soccer Complex

Parking lot bingo is back at the Coon Rapids Soccer Complex.

"Be sure you have a bingo card, and we're very, very happy you joined us," said Kris Niebler, the senior services program specialist for the city of Coon Rapids, as she welcomed the seniors who came out to play.

Nearly 50 players showed up on Monday for the 55 and older event, which was sponsored by the Coon Rapids Senior Center. And there was plenty of room for more cars and players.

"G-51, G, five one,"

Pat Carlson, Coon Rapids council member at-large, was back as the bingo caller, over a low-powered radio station, which everyone could pick up on their car radio.

Parking lot bingo will be held on the second and fourth Monday of each month through September, along with a special children's event, (children must be accompanied by an adult) on June 14. Prize winners received gift certificates from local merchants.

The 10th and final game played was coverall bingo. The big winner was Jill Dupay of Coon Rapids who was handed a large wicker basket full of goodies. "It looks like chocolates, a t-shirt, and a $20 gift card for Target," said Dupay with delight.

And even though Minnesota's Governor plans to end restrictions on indoor activities by May 28, unless it rains (bingo would be help in the Coon Rapids Civic Center), parking lot bingo will remain. After all, it's just seniors having fun.
