Event Time: 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

When Mother Nature calls, it’s time for Golden Turd BINGO

This year’s 30th-anniversary celebration picnic will be unique because there is a new game to ‘doo doo’.   You choose a BINGO square and if a Golden Retriever at the picnic (or any furry picnic goer) chooses your real estate to do their “business”, then you are a winner.

How do you play this ‘sweet’ game? (BINGO RULES)

  • Participants can choose from 100 squares. The BINGO grid is 10 x 10 meters. (See grid below)
  • Each square is $20 to purchase in hope for a poop plop.
  • Tickets can be purchased online until Thursday, September 16th AND at the picnic until 11 am on September 18, 2021.
  • Participants can purchase multiple squares.
  • More than one participant CAN buy each square.
  • The event runs between 11 am and 2 pm at the Golden Rescue Picnic.
  • No one can walk their dogs on a leash across the “The Field of Dreams” purposely or direct their dogs to the area within to do their “Golden business”.
  • The “Golden Rescue poop official” will record the squares where poop lands. The poop judge’s decision is final.
  • In the event a single dog does their “doody” in more than one square, only one square will be recorded as a “win”, and it should have the largest amount of poop in the square. Once again, the poop judge’s decision is final.
  • The winnings will be calculated as a 50/50 draw. 50% of all money collected will be provided to the winner or divided amongst the Golden Turd square winners.
  • Winners will also receive a “Golden Turd BINGO Winner” certificate.
  • If NO poop lands on grid squares purchased between 11 am and 2 pm on September 18th, all winnings will go to Golden Rescue to assist Goldens in need. This is unlikely to occur, but it is necessary to mention.
  • The winner does NOT need to be present at the picnic to win. The winner will receive an email notifying them of their Golden Turd winnings.
  • A cheque, or cheques, with Golden Turd winnings will be sent to the winner, or winners.
  • PLEASE NOTE: IF the picnic is canceled and we are hoping this WON’T be the case, but IF this happens, we will retain the Golden Turd grid squares chosen by participants until the 2022 Golden Rescue Picnic. 😊
