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

FOND DU LUTH CASINO DULUTH, MN

By:RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER

ON THE FIRST TRIP UP TO THE BATTLE CREEK SHOW IN MICHIGAN, NANCY AND I STOPPED AT THE BLACK BEAR CASINO OVER NIGHT. AND GOT AN EARLY START ON THE NEXT DAY, BY NOON WE WERE IN THE BEAUTIFUL PORT CITY OF DULUTH, MN. I WAS REALLY CAPTIVATED BY THIS CITY. WE PULLED INTO A PARK AREA ABOVE THE CITY SO WE COULD SEE IT FROM ALL ANGLES. IT WAS AWESOME. WHEN WE HAD ENOUGH OF DRINKING IN THE SHEAR BEAUTY OF THE AREA, WE GOT OUT OUR GPI AND SET OUR SITES ON THE FOND DU LUTH CASINO.
FOND DU LUTH CASINO WAS DOWN TOWN, FOR AN INDIAN CASINO THIS IS A BIT UNUSUAL. http://www.themogh.org/cg_chip2.php?id=MNDUFD THE PAGE ON THE CHIP GUIDE PAGE HAS A GOOD PICTURE OF THE CASINO.
WE HAD A BIT OF A PROBLEM FINDING PARKING, BUT WE NEEDED THE EXERCISE AND THE STORES DOWNTOWN WERE OPEN SO WE ENJOYED THE WALK AND THE WINDOW SHOPPING ALONG THE WAY.
AFTER DALLYING ABOUT FOR A HALF AN HOUR WE FINALLY GOT TO THE CASINO. IT WAS THREE LEVELS, I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE FIRST TWO, BUT MOST OF THE GAMING WAS ON THE THIRD FLOOR, OF WHICH; I IMMEDIATELY WENT TO. THEY HAD ONE BLACK JACK TABLE OPEN WHEN WE GOT THERE ABOUT 1PM IN THE AFTERNOON. SO I LOOKED AROUND A BIT, AMUSED MYSELF WATCHING NANCY PLAY THE SLOTS. I FINALLY WENT BACK TO THE BLACK JACK TABLE AND SAID WHILE THEY WERE IN ACTION, I DO NOT WANT TO PLAY BUT COULD I BUY SOME CHIPS? I WAS PREPARED WITH THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF CASH IN THE CORRECT DENOMINATIONS. THE DEALER SAID CAN YOU WAIT UNTIL I SHUFFLE? I SAID, OF COURSE, AND I WAITED THE FEW MINUTES FOR THE SHUFFLE. THAT TOOK ONLY A FEW MINUTES, AND WITH THE HARVEST BEING EASY, WE TOOK FLIGHT DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN. EVERY TIME I WRITE ABOUT GOING DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN, I THINK OF “WILLIE NELSON’S SONG, ON THE ROAD AGAIN”. LOL
YES, ID DID GET ENOUGH CHIPS ON THIS HARVEST…REGGIE
