COW BINGO  held at Annual Family Fun Day ---September 12, 2009

Bertram Park ---Saegertown, PA

Proceeds benefit "Caring About Our Community" Charities/ Sponsored by Meadville Area Federal Credit Union

 

Grand Prize:  $1,000

 

 

 

Yes, this is real bingo game played on a 25 X 25 yard field with real cow.  If the first "PLOP" lands on your plot, you win $1,000.

I found this event advertised on the Credit Union's website and almost fell off my chair I was laughing so hard.  Saegertown is about 45 miles south so I may have to go to see for myself.  I will take pictures & post them here.

Actually, I've experienced this more than once.  I've even provided the cow for the event in my former life as a dairy farmer!  The only issue is that when the cow comes off the trailer, he/she usually poops and then nothing happens for awhile when they get to the field with the plots.  It's fun, a great fundraiser but it can be boring waiting for the cow to perform.

Oh my gosh, Mary.  I've never actually been to a cow bingo but I have heard about them.  Several towns in the surrounding area have dairy farms on them.  I think it would be hilarious (and possibly profitable) to go to one.  I'm gonna have to keep my eye out for one in my neck o' the woods.

Paul & Diane--I guess I am just the city girl who never heard of cow pie bingo before.  My mother was one fo ten kids who grew up on farm, but my country cousins had a lot of fun at our expense during family gatherings.  I am glad to learn more about cow bingo.  Thanks.

Heather--That's right you are a bingo enthusist!  Yes, you will have to add this to you list of 'must dos.'  Let us know what it is like from a player's point of view.  From Paul's description maybe it's boring if the cow doesn't perform for the crowd.

Years ago I went to the same event only with a chicken in a 10'x10' pen. Can't wait to see your pics too!

Marvin--It's good to hear from you again.  Hope all is going well with new venture.

A chicken--I guess--there is no limit to what the imagination can dream up.

Debra--I hope I can keep a straight face while taking the pictures and not laugh too hard.

Judy--Nice to see you again. And laugh I did. I looked at that cow, flipped to another site and just had to come back.  Then I (devil made me) wrote the post.

Carole--Me, too.  I have only been to one bingo game with young woman my brother was engaged to, but didn't end up marrying.  It was fun, but not my preferred entertainment.

Yes, I will post pictures if we attend this fundraiser.  I know many of the real estate agents in Saegertown & surrounding area as most of them have taken real estate classes from me over the years.

Susan--Tipping cows is a whole other story one I had only heard about from my farm cousins.  Guess you can sneak up on them while they are sleeping and tip them over.  Like cow bingo I have never experienced tipping cows either.

I had never heard of this before in my life.  I guess I am a big city girl!  I honestly thought you were kidding at first.  Too funny.  Thanks for the laugh.

Irene--I think we are definitely the city girls amongst AR.  Next time I see my country cousins who no longer live on farms, I will ask them about this type of bingo.

Jim & Maria--From your comment and a few others I am finding out this cow bingo and chicken bingo is somewhat common as a fundraiser activity.

Today I was wondering how I would convince my Hubby to drive to Cow Bingo on Sept 12th.  I don't think I have any girl friends that would be interestd either.  Bummer.  Anyone want to go with me???

Anna & Carra--I thought it was so funny, too, however I am not sure I can get my Hubby to go with me.  Maybe I can bribe him. 

Carra--I am glad you started a group called Cosmic Cow Pie, a perfect place for this post.
