HARVEST ADVENTURES FROM AN ADDICTED CHIP COLLECTOR

BY RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER
SOME PEOPLE HAVE COMPULSIONS TO GAMBLE, SOME TO AMASS FORTUNES AND OTHER’S, WELL THEY JUST LIKE TO WRITE STORIES. YEAH, THAT WOULD BE ME. I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED TO WRITE, NEVER WAS VERY GOOD AT IT; BUT I HAVE DONE IT OVER THE YEARS JUST THE SAME.
IF ANY OF YOU WANT ANY INSIDE INFORMATION ON ANY CASINO THAT I’VE BEEN TO, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW.

PERSONAL HARVESTING STORIES

CASINO @ DANIA BEACH DANIA BEACH, FL

By:RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER

CASINO @ DANIA BEACH UNTIL, JUST THIS LAST YEAR WAS CALLED DANIA JAI-ALAI. IT STILL HAS THE JAI-ALAI, AND THE PLACE HAS BEEN TOTALLY REMODELED. THEY ADDED A SERIOUS AMOUNT OF SLOTS AND THE POKER ROOM IS POSH. THE PEOPLE THAT OWN MAGIC CITY IN MIAMI (THE OLD FLAGLER GREYHOUND TRACK) AND THE NAPLES-FT MEYERS GREYHOUND TRACK HAVE AT LEAST 50% INTEREST IN THIS FACILITY.
EARLY THIS YEAR THEY HAD A SOFT OPENING WHILE THEY WERE STILL REMODELING. SO NANCY AND I PLANNED A TRIP OVER THERE IN CONJUNCTION WITH HER APPOINTMENT WITH THE CLEVELAND CLINIC IN WESTIN, FL. I ALSO HAD CALLED ED & PATTI NORRIS SOME FRIENDS (WHO ARE CHIP COLLECTORS ALSO-ED HAS PASSED SINCE THIS WAS WROTE, RIP) TO SEE IF THEY WOULD LIKE TO MEET AT THE CASINO AND LATER HAVE A BITE TO EAT TOGETHER. (THEY LIVE IN PALM BEACH NOW) AND THEY AGREED SO I PLAYED A FEW HANDS OF CARDS, BUT ED AND PATTI COULD NOT GET SEATS AT THE POKER TABLE, SO I CASHED OUT AND I BOUGHT MY CHIPS FOR MY COLLECTION AND PAGES AND WE PROMPTLY LEFT TO FIND A PLACE TO EAT.
WELL THAT SOUND EASY ENOUGH, BUT WE ENDED UP AFTER A HALF AN HOUR LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO EAT; SETTLING FOR THIS TINY MOSTLY TAKE OUT CHINES RESTAURANT. (NO THE CASINOS EATERY’S WERE NOT IN OPERATION, YET.) THE FOOD WAS PRETTY BAD.
BUT, WE HAD SOME VERY NICE CONVERSATIONS WITH SOME VERY GOOD FRIENDS.
ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO NANCY I RETURNED TO WESTIN AND MADE ANOTHER TRIP OVER TO THE CASINO @ DANIA BEACH TO RETURN A FEW CHIPS. I PLAYED FOR ABOUT TWO HOURS AND BROKE EVEN, AND WE HEADED HOME. I GUESS YOU CAN CALL THIS TRIP A REVERSE HARVEST. I RETURNED SOME $5’S $2’S. AND YES I STILL HAVE ENOUGH CHIPS FOR MY COLLECTION AND PAGES…REGGIE
