This is a big day for the Redstone bingo community.
Challenger Bingo will reopen today after being closed since the pandemic. The facility will open to 40% capacity and be limited to 80 people, Garrison Commander Col. Glenn Mellor announced at Thursday’s Garrison town hall.
“There is quite a following for the bingo,” he said.
Masks are required and there is no smoking. Patrons must make a bingo reservation 24 hours in advance by calling 955-3729.
The facility is open Tuesday through Saturday. Hours are 3-10 p.m. Tuesday with electronic bingo starting at 3 p.m. and session bingo beginning at 6:45.
Saturday hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Electronic bingo starts at 11 a.m. and session bingo begins at 1:45 p.m.
“I’d like to welcome everyone back to play bingo,” Ben Howard, Challenger Bingo business manager, said. “We’ve been closed almost a year. We have to open under certain parameters due to coronavirus but we’re excited to at least get open and offer bingo back to the Redstone community.”
