Is Banning Bingo Fundraising Going Too Far?

Is Banning Bingo Fundraising Going Too Far?

Alright so there is a school in California, you know the state that never rains, which district officials there have banned students from publicizing fundraising bingo events online.

Though drought is a serious matter, I am wondering if the school policy is a bit too extreme against online Bingo fundraising fliers.

Here there is students in the Booster Group who work diligently to raise money for the betterment of their school by having a weekly Bingo session.

To get the word out there to the general public they post a flier at an online board announcing the Bingo games.

According to the school policy pushing any games of chance is strictly prohibited. It is put in the same class as promoting drugs or alcohol.

Now I ask you my dear Bingo community - has this game which is notorious for raising money for charitable causes so taboo it should not be advertised online?

If that is the case, then what is next? Are we going to ban kindergarten children from playing Bingo in the classroom?

Will it become inappropriate to play at children’s birthday parties? Yes, it is a “game of chance” but isn’t everything in life about chances?

Ah but then again we are talking chances that include making some moolah. Let’s face it we can ban games of chance until the end of time and it isn’t going to create more or less gamblers in the long run.

I say let’s not sweat the small stuff and get back on track and worry about the real problems in Cali like maybe practicing doing a new rain dance.
