    where did you manage to get a bingo machine and was it a decent price?? please help Fran and the hospital patients to have a decent game of bingo if you can

    For all the orgers worrying about Fran and her quest for a Bingo machine i have pm'd her with a cheap solution to the problem and if she gets back intouch i may be help reduce her costs dramatically for bingo calling and other bits and bobs which i can pass onto her

    I may even be able to get the solution free and the books if i have a word with my fellow committe members and get them to pay for the solution as lets be fair Thurso people are in that hospital as much as the rest

    We may get a happy ever after for her yet!! aawwwwww!

    On another note the Thurso Town Improvements are also in the process of organising an Outdoor Music Festival for the St Georges Park (the Dammies to the rest of us) the idea at the moment is loads of bands from allover the county and beyond playing all the various types of music you can think of
    All profits will be split equally between Thurso Town Improvements and Caithness General Hospital

    One problem we have - before contacting the hospital - - is what, in the hospital to put it towards, our thoughts were something towards A&E as that affects everyone whos is admitted from all over the county
    Anyone any suggestions or know of anything before we speak to them
    All ideas considered let me know and i'll suggest it

    If any bands out there fancy showcasing themselves feel free to contact me on TownImprovements@Thurso.Org
    www.Thurso.Org ( wonder what made us think of that name!! sorry Niall,Bill)
    is our new site which you may want to hae a look at, its still in constructiona nd hopefully we will have a programme and some other stuff in there in th enext week but send us any info,contribution, suggestions or what ever, all critisism is welcome its the only way we can get it right

    Default Bingo again this Thursday

    Bingo is on again this Thursday 7:30 Start with doors open at 6:30 in Skinandis
    Last weeks went fairly well and we paid out over 520 in prizes and now have a rolling jackpot started which will roll over every week until we get a winner to a max of 1000

    For those who were at it we hope you enjoyed it and come back to see us again soon.
    For those who thought it a little cold because of the smokers going in and out we hope that we will solve that problem

    The computerised bingo system worked well although we will speed it up a little more as the weeks progress as everyone gets used to it

    Hope to see you there soon
