Bingo

We want to lift you up. Challenge yourself, challenge your friends, be a little crazy and go Upside Down. Let’s stay connected!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

* retrieve your real bingo card or download a digi one

* start with the challenges you like doing

* Motivate yourself to try those you doubt of (and get a taste of it)

* Scratch the challenges you’ve done, collect a line or maybe a FULL BINGO!

* Feel free to repeat challenges several times

* If you feel like it, share a picture/video/experience (#UpsAndDownsBingo #UpsandDownsGhent @UpsideDownGhent and/or in this FB event)

* Enjoy, spread your jazzin’ love

 COMBINATIONS 

 

The first who makes a bingo wins a prize! These are the possible combinations:
–> strike out a line (horizontal – vertical – diagonal)
–> strike out a square of 4 challenges
–> fulfil all the challenges on your card
Are you not the first? No worries, it’s about being activated in the first place. But, everytime you make any of these bingo combos you will be added to our raffle and election. Post with one of our # or let us know by email when you hit a Bingo.

PRICES 

 

On February 28th we’ll HOLD A RAFFLE and the election!

–> We’ll draw a random winner from all people who updated us on making a bingo. Your name will be added every time for every bingo combination you make.

–> We have a Ups & Downs jury that will select additional winners for the following categories:
** extreme Upside Down
** the most sustainable
** very social/touching/emotional
** the most creative, original
** swinging the hardest

Ups and Downs Festival Christmas period

We won’t share our full destination yet, but together we’ll be checking the compass and changing the course now and then. This is only the start of a beautiful journey. Be ready for some real life experiences!
