SAMBA participates in multiple Bingos each year and Casinos every 18 to 24 month's as fund-raiser initiatives and sources of revenue in addition to annual registration fees.
Bingo's are currently held at the Caesar's Bingo in West Edmonton Mall (#1450, 8882 - 170 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4N2.
Casinos are held at the Century Casino in St. Albert. (Formerly Apex Casino)
All revenues generated from Bingos/Casinos are utilized to minimize costs for our membership (families & players) by maintaining and/or offsetting those costs associated with our various programs and facilities which have a direct impact on our annual registration fees.
Parents who volunteer to work a Bingo or Casino also benefit by earning credits towards their annual registration fees. For each Bingo worked a $60 credit is earned, and for each Casino shift worked a $50 to $75 credit is earned depending on the shift. Credits earned after the baseball registration process is completed are applied to the following year's registration fees. Parents who wish to participate in the program can do so by selecting the Bingo Option under the Volunteer Section when registering their family member(s) on-line for the upcoming season, or any time there after by contacting the Bingo Coordinator. Once the Bingo Coordinator contacts the families and confirms a suitable requested date or a date is assigned, it is the parent’s responsibility to find a replacement worker.
Working a Bingo/Casino at the House League level is optional (no deposit cheque required). However every family of a Rep level player(s) is required to contribute to the program, either through volunteer work at a bingo or casino, or with a specified payment (bingo deposit cheque $225). Therefore, priority is given to the Rep parent(s) to fulfill their one bingo requirement.
After that, requests are based on a "first come - first serve" basis.
Please choose 1 date for which you wish to sign up. Each session will start at 5:00 PM and end at 9:30 PM.
