At the gambling board, there were usually 4 or 50 people, mainly women in their 5s and 60s, but they easily avoided police crackdowns.

This is the gambler recruitment letter they received.

The gathering place was notified only two hours before the gambling board took place, and the gamblers were transported to the mountains by van.

The meeting place also changed every day, and they moved from as little as 10 km to as much as 40 km.
