GUEST AUTHORS OF HARVEST STORIES AND THEIR ADVENTURES
A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO I STARTED ASKING GUEST AUTHORS TO SUBMIT HIS/HER’S HARVEST STORIES. (WHEN I WAS STILL DOING THE POD – PAGE OF THE DAY)
AT THIS WRITING I HAVE 60+ STORIES TO SHARE. I AM HOPING THAT A FEW MORE AUTHORS WILL STEP UP TO THE PLATE, AND THESE VERY PROLIFIC “CHIPPERS” WILL COME UP WITH A FEW MORE. I WILL CONTINUE TO RE RUN THESE STORIES THROUGH THE COMING YEAR.
THESE STORIES ARE ALWAYS INFORMATIVE AND USUALLY HAVE A BIT OF TONGUE AND CHEEK HUMOR.
IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO SHARE WITH OTHERS, DIFFERENT WAYS OF HARVESTING, THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS THAT WE HAVE FACED OUT THERE WHILE WE WERE HARVESTING.
I ALSO ASK CB POSTERS FOR PERMISSION TO RE RUN THEIR STORIES IF THEY POST IT ON CHIPBOARD.
A GUEST AUTHOR’s HARVEST STORY
MOHAWK BINGO PALACE
BY GUEST AUTHOR: CARL SHALIT
I live in the Boston area and once or twice a year I have to go to Syracuse, NY, a 6 or so hour drive. Several years ago I decided to take a longer scenic ride by way of the Akwesasne casino in upstate NY since I had not been there since they opened in 1999.
Great timing, they had just released a hotel opening chip so I gather several.
Continuing on towards Syracuse, I saw a sign that said "POKER". Of course I stopped since I had no idea there was anything in the area except the Akwesasne. They did have live poker using "Mohawk Bingo Palace" chips. As I recall, they would only sell me one of each.
As I was walking out, a young fellow who heard me explain that I was a collector followed me and said he had some chips that he couldn't redeem since the house they were from closed. Naturally I bought them from him. These were from "Three Feathers Casino".
Bottom line is, from what I expected to be just a long scenic way to get to Syracuse, I gathered FIVE new chips. These are all on the Chipguide.
Reggie, feel free to use this.
