HARVEST ADVENTURES FROM AN ADDICTED CHIP COLLECTOR

BY RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER
SOME PEOPLE HAVE COMPULSIONS TO GAMBLE, SOME TO AMASS FORTUNES AND OTHER’S, THEY JUST LIKE TO WRITE STORIES; YEAH, THAT WOULD BE ME. I WAS NEVER 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 CAN.

PERSONAL HARVESTING STORIES

AVI CASINO LAUGHLIN, NV

By:RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER

THE LAST VISIT I MADE TO THE AVI WAS BEST VISIT I HAD EVER MADE TO THE AVI.
NANCY AND I HAD STOPPED TO VISIT HER COUSIN CLAUDE IN BULL HEAD CITY ACROSS THE RIVER. WHEN WE GOT THERE WE FOUND THAT HE HAD TAKEN OFF ON HIS DAILY PILGRIMAGE TO THE AVI, USING THE BACK ROADS OF BULL HEAD CITY AND TAKING THE LOWER BRIDGE THAT IS RIGHT AT THE AVI CASINO.
LET ME EXPLAIN SOME THING RIGHT NOW, THIS YOUNG MAN OF 99 YEARS AND 10 MONTHS WAS STILL WORKING, STILL DRIVING, STILL PLAYING GOLF (TWICE A WEEK) AND STILL PLAYING POKER ALMOST EVERY DAY. OUR HISTORY GOES BACK BEFORE I EVEN MET NANCY. I USED TO GO TO LAUGHLIN ABOUT 4 TIMES A YEAR WHEN I LIVED IN CARDIFF BY THE SEA, CA. AND WHEN I WENT OVER THERE I WOULD STAY AT THE “BELLE” AND PLAY POKER AT THE “BELLE” AND I REMEMBER PLAYING AGAINST HIM FROM TIME TO TIME. A VERY COY AND GIFTED PLAYER. COME TO FIND OUT HE WAS A COUSIN TO NANCY. SMALL WORLD. THIS TIME HE WAS SITTING AT THE TABLE AT THE AVI AND I SAT DOWN NEXT TO HIM AFTER *SCOTTY GAVE ME THE GO AHEAD. THEN NANCY SNUCK UP BEHIND HIM AND GAVE HIM A BIG HUG; THOSE WERE SPECIAL MOMENTS.
JUST AFTER I SAT DOWN I NOTICE A CHIP, A NEW CHIP THAT I HAVE NEVER SEEN, I IMMEDIIATELY ASKED SCOTTY ABOUT THIS. *SCOTTY WAS THE POKER ROOM MANAGER AT THE AVI, HE HAD BEEN A DEALER AT THE COLORADO BELLE; AND CLAUDE LIKED HIM A LOT AND FOLLOWED HIM DOWN (CHANGED HIS PLACE WHERE HE PLAYED POKER) TO THE AVI WHEN HE GOT THE MANAGER JOB. MEANWHILE SCOTTY EXPLAINED THEY JUST CAME IN TODAY THEY WERE THE WHITE CHIPS WITH THE 8 BLACK INSERTS. SO I HAULED OFF ABOUT 50 OF THEM TO TRADE AND SELL AT CONVENTION. THEY LASTED ME A WHILE.
SADLY THAT WAS THE LAST TIME NANCY AND I SAW CLAUDE. HE PASSED ABOUT A

MONTH LATER, WE WERE VERY HAPPY TO HAVE MADE THAT EXTRA EFFORT TO SEE AND

TALK TO HIM THAT ONE LAST TIME…REGGIE
