The object of the First Two Letters Alphabet Bingo Contest is to play bingos that use the session's designated "First Two Letters" letter as either the first or second letter of the bingo. For each bingo you play that uses that session's designated letter as either the first or second letter of the bingo, you score one point. For instance, if the session's "First Two Letters" letter is A, and you played bingos that included ADDENDUM, HAPPENS, and RADIATE, you would score three points -- one for using the A as the first letter in ADDENDUM, one for using the A as the second letter in HAPPENS , and one for using the A as the third letter in RADIATE.
Each session, one dollar will be taken out of the dues collected and added to the First Two Letters Alphabet Bingo Jackpot.
