Long Lake has announced their Winter Wonderland Bingo, which will feature activities and outdoor recreation in the form of a contest that will last until Feb. 28.
They will be posting specially designed bingo cards on social media, and making printed cards available at the Long Lake Town Office and at local businesses starting Feb. 12.
Participation is free, and those who partake are encouraged to complete as many activities as they can, with prizes available depending on how many activities you can complete.
Featured tasks include indoor and outdoor activities ranging from reading Adirondack books, visiting area retail stores trying out cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and skating and more.
Those who complete one row of bingo will receive a gift card, five random activities will win a sticker, and the completion of all 25 tasks will be able to choose from a selection of prizes, and be entered to win a gift basket featuring items from Long Lake and Raquette Lake merchants.
In order to play, cross off activities as completed and photograph the card showing the completed tasks. Submit digital photos via email or to the uploader for prizes. Submit photo proof of purchase for any meals or shopping, and any activities to email@example.com or upload them directly to https://upload.crowdriff.com/lakesbingo.
Participants are encouraged to post their photos on Instagram using hashtags : #mylonglakebingo #barkeaterbingo #YesLongLake and follow the page: www.instagram.com/mylonglake
The fact that going to the liquor store is listed as a winter wonderland activity conveys something about winter living in the region, but I’m not sure what. Desperate boredom and loneliness, or Adirondack joie de vivre? Also, the apostrophe is in the wrong spot in “S’mores”.
