Gaming operators from Colorado have formed a new association to discuss the business situation amid the current pandemic.
US.- Colorado gaming operators have formed an association called the Colorado Amusement and Music Operators (CAMO).
The state’s amusement operators had a similar organisation some years ago.
The inaugural meeting was held on June 10 at the Game Exchange, a Colorado supplier, with representatives from around 20 companies present. The Game Exchange’s Bob Burnham was elected president, with Nick Sunday of Alpine Video & Pinball as vice-president and July Mehle of BMW Billiards as secretary and treasurer.
Board members are Gary Garlutso (Trinidad Music & Games), Steve Lesser (Games People Play), JJ Babich (8 Ball Entertainment), Adam Koch (Bear Creek Amusements), Soyna Vialpando (Phantom Darts), Andrew Shear (Mile High Arcade) and Ron Shino (Front Street Vending).
The group is planning to hold another meeting in autumn but expects to have regular conference calls in the interim.
The meeting was told that chances were not good of an early restart to businesses after the Covid-19 pandemic. They do not expect to be allowed to restart until September 5, ready for Labor Day on September 7. Casinos have been permitted to reopen, causing a major upset for FEC operators.
