Volunteer opportunity description
We are in need of an energetic, personable person who can call Bingo once a week to our senior residents in our assisted living facility.
A bingo caller is not merely a caller but an overall manager of the game. A good bingo caller is the centerpiece of the game, or to say the center of attraction.
It is the skill of a bingo caller to announce the numbers in an interesting way, that keeps the players hooked.
It is the responsibility of a bingo caller to
- maintain the accuracy, speed and of course the flow of the game.
- alert players to the current bingo pattern being played, in addition to who won what at the end of every game.
- maintain a record of the numbers called, he/she also has to keep players happy by repeating the numbers whenever asked for
- verify the players' bingo cards to confirm that the numbers called have indeed been marked off on the winning bingo card.
- resolve issues and avoid confusions in case there are more than one bingo winner.
Are you energetic? Personable? Funny? Patient?Have an understanding and a passion for working with seniors? Then we want you!
If a bingo caller is dull and boring, players would lose interest in the game.
