Dinosaurs To Technological Advancements
Past, Present, Future Rock His World
He grew up in rural North Carolina on a tobacco farm in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains. He can trace his Scottish-English-Irish ancestors back to the 1600s, as they journeyed to North America, then a brave, new world.
One of his grandfathers, a whaler, was an original deed
holder of Nantucket, now a historic seaport off the coast of
Massachusetts. Another forefather fought alongside Gen. George Washington in 1777, against British forces during this nation’s Revolutionary War.
At age 17, he wondered what he could do to “get off the farm.” His family had a history of serving in the military. His father, a marine and POW, was severely wounded during the Korean War. Instead, he joined the U.S. Air Force.
“I was always interested in space and flying,” said Tim Adams, Video King’s Director of Technical Service & Support.
“When I was young, there had been no one in space. I would lay out in
the field at night and listen as Sputnik, (a Soviet satellite that
inaugurated the Space Age) broadcast its signal over the radio as it
crossed the night sky.”
He’d also watch in fascination, as trucks would haul large pieces of
aircraft enroute to Langley, Va., home to CIA headquarters, in a state
Trained in aircraft rescue he became
a member of a para-rescue unit, he had full intentions of pursuing a
military career. But instead of serving his country, he was called for
duty – in his eyes – closer to home. In 1974, he donated a kidney to his
brother, the second ever live transplant of its kind performed, at
Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem, N.C., a deed he never regretted, but
ultimately curtailing his career.

Two Ball Bingo A Jackpot!
Odds Are In Everyone's Favor ...
Two Ball Bingo Jackpot
Ideal For Any Size Hall!
What’s better than two birds in a bush … Try “Two Ball Bingo Jackpot,” Video King’s latest progressive, pull-tab game, designed for halls, both large and small.
You probably heard the saying, “A bird in the hand is worth two in the
bush,” meaning it’s best to take advantage of the surer thing.
Well, we can certainly bet “Two Balls,” designed by Jeff McIntosh, general manager of Bingo Video King, our Florida division, will be a big hit.
See, McIntosh knows a thing or two about Bingo, the gaming industry and
its most popular games. Fact, he’s invented many of them, such as the “Main Event” and “All Niter,” his more recent pull-tab progressives.
Concept Quite Simple!
“I really wanted to create a short count game, that could generate a
really good-sized jackpot, making it exciting for all-sized Bingo
Here, according to McIntosh, is how the game is played.
“There are five deals available, one for each letter of Bingo. The hall
can sell one deal or all five. It’s a small ticket count, 105 tickets in
each deal. So, virtually, even the smallest halls will be able to play
and build the progressives,” he said.
Custom Bingo Bags & Cushions! Video King Launches Line Of Laser-Printed Merchandise
What’s your bag … Rather where’d you get that
bag? Same goes for those cushions, mugs, key chains and other Bingo
items, you’ve been toting.
That will soon be heard throughout Florida and beyond as Bingo Video
King launches its new line of merchandise, geared toward Bingo players.
Why? Not only are these bags and cushions superior quality, but
offer a vast variety of fabrics and styles. They range from stars and
stripes to animal prints, cats, dog paws, bones and skulls, floral
patterns, and of course, Bingo cards and balls, according to Cindy Warfield, manager of BVK’s Tampa location.
That’s because Bingo Video King, a division of Video King, has partnered with a new vendor, which uses laser technology to print their fabrics.
“Sales have really jumped because of it,” said Warfield. “It’s a whole different technology. It’s really bright and colorful.”
And, to make them even more unique, the bags and cushions are all customizable, according to Jeff McIntosh, general manager of BVK’s Fort Lauderdale location.
