BEFORE YOU BEGIN PLEASE READ THIS CARD TO ALL MEMBERS WHO ARE WORKING: IT CONTAINS INSTRUCTIONS FOR EVERYONE TO FOLLOW!!!

THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING FOR THE BINGO CONCESSIONS! THE OPTIMIST CLUB HAS DESIGNED THESE CARDS TO ASSIST YOU IN SETTING UP AND CLOSING DOWN BINGO CONCESSIONS. DIVIDE THE CARDS BETWEEN YOUR WORKERS. THE CARDS ARE SET UP THAT EACH PERSON CAN PREFORM THEIR DUTIES INDIVIDUAL-LY AFTER THESE FIRST STEPS ARE READ.

1. The three door refrigerator in the hallway at the back of the kitchen con-tain the refrigerated supplies for WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY

NIGHT BINGO.

2. All canned goods and dry supplies and cooking utensils are located on the two carts and the wooden shelves in the back storeroom. (Wooden door just beyond the three door refrigerator, key to door is on BINGO key ring.) Ice is in the ice maker in the maintance room down the hall to the high school classes and gym. All of these supplies belong to Wednesday and Sat-urday night bingo, You will need both carts, the sign, the red cooler, cups, chips, and popcorn supplies.

3. The wooden concession area counter doors should be opened first to get some air circulating and allow you to set up the concession area. The center section needs to opened first. Latches are under the counter and at each end of the wooden doors.

The Saturday Bingo starts at 7:00 PM with early bird, with intermission approx-imately 8:15 PM (depends on how quickly the games progress). Concessions should open at 5:30 PM (yes, people will be there and usually waiting) but no later than 6:00PM.

When Bingo starts at 7:00PM you will have about an hour and ½ break, it is suggested that you use this time to restock and also clean up things you will not need any more. Concessions closes as soon as bingo resumes after intermis-sion. With everyone pitching in you should be able to have things cleaned up and put away by 9:15 to 9:30. Your organization will receive a check from the Optimist Club the week after you worked the concessions unless you are work-ing multiple weeks then your organization will receive a check after your last week is worked.

Please note that Wednesday Night Bingo timeline is different then Saturday Night Bin-go timeline!

Wednesday night Bingo starts at 6:45 with early bird and regular bingo starts after five games have been played. 9 games of regular Bingo are played with an intermission. We try to have everything ready by 6:00 for Wednesday night concessions.

CONCESSION COUNTER SET UP:

There are two 3 container crock pots on the small cart, place these

on the concession counter leaving room to put the buns, sandwich wrap

papers beside them. If buns were left from the last weeks concessions

they will be in the three door refrigerator in the hallway.

Be sure that

these buns are used first!

Plugged in the crock pots and turn them on so they begin warming

up.

Adjust the heat as the evening goes to prevent the contents from

burning!

The

first

3 container crock pot holds the chicken and beef and

Sloppy Joe. Place an ice cream scoop and a small clear plastic bowl

shaped like an ear of corn in front of the crock pot that will hold the

beef and chicken. The scoops and bowls are on the large cart.

The second 3 container crock pot holds the NACHO cheese and

the NACHO meat for the NACHO Supremes and the hot dogs. The

NACHO cheese is served with a large silver spoon. When not being

used please leave the spoon in the crock pot there is a slight indentation

on the crock pot to allow the spoon to rest in there. Place an ice cream

scoop and a small clear plastic bowl shaped like an ear of corn in front

of the crock pot that will hold the NACHO meat. A small white bowl

of sour cream should be put beside the crock pot along with some

plas-tic forks to be used to serve sour cream for the NACHO Supremes.

CONDIMENT SET-UP

All cold and dry condiments are to be put on the large wooden table on wheels in the BINGO area. The wooden table usually is set up in front of the

concession counter at the far south end of the center section this allows the people access to them and still allows the people to be served at the

conces-sion counter.

COLD CONDIMENTS

Get the cold condiments from the three door refrigerator in the hallway. There are Bread and Butter Pickles, Dill Pickles, Relish, Salsa, Ketchup and Mustard on top shelf in the refrigerator. Put each kind of the pickles, the relish and the salsa in small white bowls. Small white bowls are on the shelf of the large cart. Also for ease of serving be sure to put a small silver fork or spoon in the bowls. (The small silver forks and spoons can be found in a container on the large cart.) Put the cold condiment bowls on the wooden table and for ease of serving be sure to set the large containers of catsup and mustard on the end the table so the customers can use the pumps easier. NO NOT USE PLASTICE SPOONS PLEASE!

The Jalapeno Peppers and Sour Cream are not to be put on the condiment table. Put the jar of Jalapeno Peppers on the wooden table with the NACHO chips. On the large cart are small 2 ounce plastic cups that the Jalapeno Peppers are served in, place these cups beside the jar of Jalapeno Peppers along with one of the large spoons with the smiley face on it. The sour cream is put into a small white bowl and placed near the crock pot that contains the NACHO meat and cheese.

Dice two onions using the electric dicer, and place diced onion in small white bowl. The electric dicer is in the container on a shelf of the large cart. The onions are in a large red coffee container on the large cart.

Dry Condiments

The dry condiments are in the large white container marked DRY CONDI-MENTS. The condiments are in small red plastic baskets. Place the salt, pepper, seasoned salt, napkins, sugar, creamer, coffee sweeteners, straws, stirrer sticks and napkins on the wooden shelf. If needed there are extra dry condiments in boxes on the large cart. Napkins are used quite freely and will need to be replen-ished often throughout the night. There are more napkins on the large cart. When putting things away at the end of the night please keep all the dry condiments in the small red plastic baskets, DO NOT DUMP THE BASKETS INTO THE LARGE WHITE CONTAINER, this makes it easier for the next group setting up not to have to sort out the condiments!!

PLEASE BE SURE TO LET THE WATER RUN FOR AWHILE

BEFORE USING IT AS IT WILL BE DISCOLORED WHEN

FIRST TURNED ON.

Coffee is made in SUMMER (Yes, in hot weather there are still coffee

drinkers!) and WINTER.

small 8oz Styrofoam coffee cups beside the coffee maker. Cream and

sugar are on the wooden table in front of the concession stand and

these are set up by the person doing the cold and dry condiments.

12 cup coffee maker.

keep the coffee from getting to strong and bitter.)

of coffee per pot.

Be sure to use a coffee filter in the basket where the

coffee grounds go.

Once the coffee is brewed you should remove

popcorn popper) put an assortment of pop in the tubs, usually a row of

pop the long way in the gray containers is enough to get you started.

Please do not put ice over the pop in the gray containers as this melts

and makes the cans wet and creates a trail of water from the table

across the counter. Each can of pop or water is served with a cup of

ice so there is no need to ice down the pop. The pop is put on the silver

table where the Nacho chips and money are placed. The water can be

placed on the table beside of the gray tubs.

store-room on the top shelf.
