Club Happenings & News
LISTEN TO YOUR FRIENDS - There were only four cards on the Big Board. Pete Lagiovane was ready to choose. He asked the crowd for advice, and then promptly ignored it and selected a different card. He got a loser. The card suggested by the crowd? JACKPOT!!!
This week there will be only three cards, the Jackpot card, a $5 winner, and a You Lose card. We expect ticket sales to be brisk, and that the jackpot will be about $750! Be sure to attend the meeting and to get your jackpot tickets.
