78 Hours Of Talk Before It’s Bingo

A GUINNESS world record attempt at Red Rock soon is sure to attract attention as Leane McLachlan tries to break the best time for continuous calling of bingo.

Leane will need to call bingo for 78 hours. She is allowed a 10-minute rest break every four hours. Despite the obvious ramifications of going without sleep for 78 hours, Leane’s doctor has advised her to refrain from speaking during the 24 hours leading up to the attempt.

Leane has called bingo at events in the past, but said she was certainly not professional and was unsure how her voice would hold up.

A trained medical officer will remain on-site to ensure she comes to no harm, Leane said she was approaching the event with only a small amount of trepidation. We’ve got to be positive about this, but the last 24 hours will certainly be an experience, she said. It will hopefully be worth it. Leane is the secretary of the Red Rock-Corindi Surf Life Saving Club and came up with the idea as a way to raise $20,000 as quickly as possible so they could finish building the clubhouse before its opening on January 13.
