Festival of Trees

Reunite With Your Holiday Spirit at the Bay Area Rotary Club Festival of Trees Event November 24, 2014 – December 2, 2014

There is something very special that happens here at The Mill Casino every November & December. Even Ebeneezer Scrooge would be hard pressed to ward off the holiday spirit that fills our hotel & casino when Bay Area Rotary club presents their annual Festival of Trees!

The Festival of Trees is an event where participants demonstrate their holiday-decorating talents while raising thousands of dollars for local charities like Shots for Tots and Women’s Safety & Resource Center.

Businesses and individuals throughout the community come together annually to create this seasonal charity extravaganza by decorating or sponsoring special holiday trees and wreaths. The decorated trees and wreaths are then placed on public display for a week in our lobby, then auctioned off and delivered to the home of the winning bid or to a local family in need*.

Check out some of the winning decorations from the 2013 event:

A Quick Guide to Craps

Casino Comments Off

If you’re looking for the Craps table here at The Mill, just listen for cheering and shouting and people having a blast…then you’ll know the dice are hot!

Craps is one of the most popular table games at The Mill Casino. Our guests enjoy the game because it is easy to learn, and pure fun. You don’t have to know everything to play. In fact, with just a little research and a few rolls of the dice, you will soon be playing like a pro!

Start by learning a few small bets and work your way up. Here are some basic things to remember:

1. Craps is played with a pair of dice; each person at the table has a chance to be the “shooter,” but you can bet whether you’re shooting or not.

2. When the Stickperson (the person who pushes you the dice with a stick) indicates it is your turn to shoot, you place your bet. Watch a few rounds and you’ll quickly see how the betting works.

3. The Stickperson will then have you choose two of five dice. Pick two dice up with the hand you use for throwing (you may only touch the dice with one hand) and hit the end of the table with both dice.

What happens from here depends on the dice.

• If you throw a 7 or 11 and you are betting on the Pass Line, you “Win.”
• If you throw a Crap (2, 3, or 12), Don’t Pass bets win and Pass Line bets are taken.
• If you throw anything other than craps, 7 or 11, then that number becomes your “point” (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10)
• You must repeat the point before a 7 to win.
• Once the point has been established, you continue to shoot the dice until you make your point or 7 out.

All bets are made with gaming chips, purchased at the game. Some bets are made directly by each player (by setting your chips on specific areas marked on the table. Other bets are made by passing chips to your dealer or the stickperson.

You will get the hang of it as you play, and our Table Games Staff will be happy to help with any questions you have.

Over 500 Visitors Coming to the Mill for the Monaco International Motor Coach Rally

Press Releases, RV Park Comments Off

More than 500 visitors and their RVs will be rolling into town beginning Aug. 1 as Monaco International celebrates its 30th anniversary with a motor coach rally at The Mill Casino • Hotel & RV Park.

This will be the first time the national organization will hold its anniversary rally on Oregon’s South Coast. Monaco International is a chapter of the Family Motor Coach Association, which held a successful rally for over 1,200 participants at The Mill in 2012.

Formal activities for the event begin Aug. 6, but most participants will arrive several days early to take advantage of regional attractions.

“Hosting an event like this is a great privilege for The Mill and an even greater opportunity for our communities to show what we have to offer travelers to our region,” said Terri Porcaro, general manager of The Mill Casino • Hotel & RV Park. “Visitors at the 2012 event were thrilled with how they were received by our communities, which helped inspire Monaco International to bring their rally to the South Coast.”

Although the event is open to FMCA members only, a vendor show and display of RV coaches is open to the public Aug. 6-8.

The Mill has planned a variety of activities for rally participants including a poker run to shops and local venues in North Bend and Coos Bay. Tours of local attractions will be available to give visitors a taste of what the region has to offer. Members of the Coquille Indian Tribe will demonstrate native cooking techniques and discuss Tribal culture at a traditional salmon bake.

About Monaco International: Monaco International is one of the largest chapters of coach owners in the Family Motor Coach Association. The organization hosts several rallies every year in a variety of locations, often adjacent to the International FMCA Rally. Membership is open to anyone who owns any brand of motor home manufactured by Monaco Coach Corporation or Monaco RV. For more information, visit www.monacointernationalrvclub.com.

Mill Luck Salmon Celebration Returns September 13-14, 2014

Mill Luck Salmon Celebration Comments Off

Summer is in full swing which means the Mill Luck Salmon Celebration is just around the corner! Plan now to experience Native American culture, art, food and music at the 11th Annual Mill Luck Salmon Celebration, September 13-14, 2014.

If you have never been to one of our celebrations, you don’t know what you are missing, so we’ll try to sum it up in 30 seconds:

The celebration is perhaps best known for its traditional salmon bake dinner where fresh salmon is prepared in the time-honored Coquille open-pit manner but it also features numerous family activities (many of them free) including canoe races, cultural exhibits and demonstrations, a Native American marketplace, and educational children’s activities.

Included again this year will be a “weigh station” and awards ceremony for the Annual Coos Basin Amateur Salmon Derby.

The Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration is linked to the traditional observance marking the return of the salmon and is intended to share the heritage, culture and traditions of the Coquille Indian Tribe and other Pacific Northwest Tribes.  Details for the 2014 celebration are still in the works so we encourage you to check back often for updates!
