2: Take classes and try new instructors to earn a maximum of 2 spaces per class.
3: When you have BINGO, you can enter your card in the weekly prize drawing - OR - you can hold out to get the coveted "COVER ALL" and enter the raffle for a "COVER ALL" prize! 

Turn your completed card in with an instructor or in the BINGO BOX outside the aquatics office. Don't forget to include your first and last name on the back of the card.
