The GOA NSW Whist & Bingo sessions were started in 2010.
The purpose was to encourage the older members of our community to attend a low cost event, held during the day & to meet up with like minded people for a game of cards & bingo.
The first session was attended by nearly 70 people, old & the young at heart.
In 2014, GOA NSW decided to ramp things up and introduced the Snowball Whist & Bingo. These sessions are held four times a year with a Rolling trophy awarded to the participant with the highest cumulative score over the four sessions.
The winner receives a miniature trophy as a keepsake.
