BINGO: Try It! You might like it

BingoDuck

We could use a few fans willing sell BINGO -- even if just once or twice a season when we need extra help.   It never hurts to have more BINGO sellers, but there are a few games where we have the most need:

  • We need extra help for the 'Big Games':  Huge crowds can use more sellers (example: Mississippi State!)
  • We need extra help for Early Friday Games -- especially during Conference play:  For a 6pm Friday game, BINGO sellers need to arrive @ 4:45 to be ready for the doors opening @ 5pm.   Our regular sellers with jobs usually can't make it in time for BINGO selling.

If you have any interest, contact our BINGO Director, Carol James (carolj1428@comcast.net, or 541-746-7400).   Carol can resolve any questions and concerns you have, find a game for you to try it out, and pair you with an experienced seller to make it a positive experience.   If you like it, you can choose when you try selling again.

 

Extra info (if you wanted it):

You don't need to be an FBC member, though we are looking for *responsible* fans that will work to support the WBB program.  It is possible to sell BINGO without being a ticket holder.   (You get free general-admission entry into the game).   So, you can refer your friends!

BINGO sellers normally arrive 1h:15m before game time, so they can be ready when the doors open to the public.

You can see Carol's BINGO report from last season (here), about the funds raised.   This season, Satou Sabally is the recipient of the Teresa Smith Women's Basketball Scholarship that the FBC supports.

BINGO sellers welcome lots of happy fans to MKA and help support our Duck WBB.   Look at it as another way to do your bit to help a program you love.  Most often, you are just 'selling' to fans that have bought a ticket every game for years.  Sometimes you are answering common questions for new fans ('where is the nearest restroom?')

 


2019 Tournament Planning

2018-10-05-Pac12Trophy

We'll have more planning tips later in the season, but for now consider marking your calendars.

 

2019 Pac-12 Women's Basketball Tournament  (link)

  • March 7-10, 2019
  • MGM Arena | Las Vegas, NV

  • All session tickets are officially on sale, as of October 31.
  • Oregon fans will also be able to purchase tickets thru the Oregon Athletic Department ticket office in February.
  • More early ticket info from Pac-12 here

 

2019 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament (link)

  • We know our Ducks will have to work hard to get to the tournament and will work even harder to hopefully host, and hopefully be seeded in the Portland regional!
  • The first two rounds, also referred to as the subregionals, will be played at the sites of the top 16 seeds, as was done in 2016–2018.
  • The Regional round is March 29 - April 1, 2019. We know other Pac-12 teams will be fighting very hard for the west-coast (Portland) spot… Oregon State is the official host for that regional event, so we know they’ll be fighting to play there.
  • If the Ducks make it to the Final Four & Championship, that would be in Tampa, Florida: April 5-7, 2019

 

Cities for future (2020-2024) Final Fours have been announced.  2020 will be in New Orleans!   (link)
