Changes to Bingo Concession Prices

As Hawkeye Downs Management continues to work to improve the experience at all of our activities on campus, we are announcing new prices to our bingo concessions! We know that our bingo players are used to prices going up, but heading into 2018, we are happy to say many of our prices will be going down!

 

We understand that in previous, our prices can make or break a persons decision to come play with us, and we appreciate all of our players. Because of this, instead of raising our prices, many will be coming down. The price board above concessions will reflect this immediately. The board has also been revised as we look into improving our menu more.

New Years Eve Bingo 2017

The holiday season has arrived! This is a wonderful time to get together and spend time with our family, something we here at Hawkeye Downs firmly believe in.

 

Bingo Monday, Thursday and Saturdays.

While we understand that many players like to attend bingo on New Years Eve, the management has decided not to host bingo this year in order to allow our players and staff the ability to be with their families during this time.

 

Bingo will be played at the regular days and times during that week, Thursday (28th), Friday (29th), and Saturday (30th). Our staff looks forward to seeing you on this week in between Christmas and New Years. Hawkeye Downs appreciates your patronage and understanding with your decision.

No Bingo Thursday, Dec 7th

Hawkeye Downs regrets that Bingo for Thursday night this week, December 7, 2017, must be cancelled due to the need for ITC to interrupt our power during the day. ITC & Alliant are working on power lines in the area for another customer and it is necessary for them to shut down power to our Hawkeye Downs campus for most of the day.

 

Due to the cold temperatures expected, Hawkeye Downs Bingo Hall will not have sufficient time to ensure that the building is heated to a comfortable temperature before Bingo opens; therefore, we must cancel Bingo on Thursday night of this week.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience that this power interruption by ITC causes. Bingo will resume on Friday, the next day, November 8, 2017. Doors open at 4pm. Bingo starts at 6:30pm.
