This challenge begins on March 20.
Mission: Claim at least one "Bingo!" before June 20 (the first day of summer)!

RULES & GUIDELINES

Not too many of these as it is supposed to be fun after all :)

* As with traditional Bingo, you can go for a horizontal, vertical, diagonal, "X" or "around the world" (perimeter). Or aim big and go for a black out (all squares)!

* A book can only be used once on the sheet.

* Interpret the categories as broadly as you like.

* Feel free to copy and paste the template below to record your books:
