Well, the stage is now set for an epic showdown of Bingo calling talent in London on the 25th November. The last two regional heats of the NBGA Bingo Caller Of The Year were held in the last week – so we now have the full line up for the event. The Wales heat was won on the 19th of October by Robert Willard of the Cwmbran Mecca Bingo club. As well as winning the Welsh heat, Robert has the unique distinction of having been the caller for the three winning Mecca Millionaire link games. Robert is joined in the final by the Scottish heat winner James Cook of Edingburgh’s Fountain Park Mecca.
Congratulations to both of them in reaching the final six. The line up then for the 2007 NBGA Bingo Caller Of The Year is:
Allan Musa (Buckingham Bingo – North West winner)
Blake Robson (Mecca Bingo – North East winner)
Mark Lunn (Mecca Bingo – Midlands winner)
Melanie Ceazar (Gala Bingo – South winner)
Robert Willard (Mecca Bingo – Wales winner)
James Cook (Mecca Bingo – Scotland winner)
Given their recent rough times, it’s good to see Mecca Bingo represented so strongly in the final with 4 of the 6 callers coming from their clubs. I think the final is to be held at the Wood Green Mecca Bingo Club on Sunday the 25th of November. Unsurprisingly the official National Bingo site is once again lacking in updates and info ahead of the event. Come on folks, pull your finger out.
