Adair Band Bingo Grand opening: Awesome!
And for Epicureans: The Bingo Hall food by Leslie Keltner and staff was great - and the prices? Awesome, too. Awesomely low.
By Ed Waggener
The Grand Opening of the Adair Band Bingo couldn't have gone better. The crowd was bigger than ever expected, the food was great, and best of all, three representatives of the Kentucky Charitable Gaming Commission were on hand and were impressed with the operation and especially the opening night turnout.
There were 192 players, with several from out-of-town. "I was too busy to keep track of where they all came from, but I know several came from Campbellsville," Teresa Bright, who is making sure the books are kept in order, said.
David Herbst, president of the Adair Band Boosters, was very pleased, according to Bright.
The ADAIR band's famed food service was at the top of it's "simple menu" game. Leslie Keltner directed the operation, and customers raved about the quality of the bingo hall food, and many were surprised at the prices. A loaded cheeseburger was only $2.50. The stand offered Hotdogs and Cheese Nachos as well.
The big thing, according to Bright, is that everybody had a good time. "It was fun," she said. "And it looks like this will be successful as a fundraiser for the band's charitable recipients. For the kids, and for other programs the Adair County band supports."
The smooth operation came, in part because of pre-opening training, and in part, because all of both "teams" organized to run the twice weekly sessions, were on hand for the Grand Opening. In the future, only one team will be necessary each night.
Adair Bingo sessions are each Tuesday and each Friday, 5pm-10pmCT, at the Adair Bingo Hall, 55 Shady Lane, Columbia, KY. The location is off KY 55/Campbellsville Road, just north of Ol' Joe's BBQ.
