Bingo hall to open again

The Fort Frances Bingo Hall is expected to be open again this evening after being closed last night due to technical problems, an official with the company that owns the facility said this morning.
“We just couldn’t have [Bingo] when the equipment wasn’t working properly,” the official said from Fort Erie.
But she noted technicians worked them through the problem and everything is now in working order.
The Fort Frances Gymnastics Academy was scheduled to run the Bingo last night, with head coach Mirel Bica saying the club probably lost a few hundred dollars due to the problem.
But as long as Bingo will be back on, it’s not a big deal, he added.
Bica noted many local organizations and service clubs rely on the nightly Bingos as a major fundraiser.
