Esteemed Gentlemen Spoofers,

we are getting close to our big anniversary for the spoofers and I would like to hereby invite all of you fine gentlemen to join us.

On 8th September we will celebrate our 30th year spoofing. In 1988 nine gentlemen got together for the first spoof in the British Club and since then it became a tradition to keep Tuesday nights free to enjoy the evening with excellent spoofing and the company of like-minded gentlemen.

30 years later we organize a full evening of celebrations and of course spoofing.

From 5pm onwards we will celebrate in the (New) Churchill Bar in the British Club, at 7pm we will start the anniversary spoofing championships upstairs where we will continue to celebrate until late.30thflyer

Other recommended hotels in the area:
In case the Camelot is fully booked, the Sun City is directly opposite the Camelot. Also walking distance to the venue is the Beverly Plaza Hotel, the Nova Platinum Hotel, the Sun Xclusive Hotel and the Koenig Mansion.

How to go there:

A lot of fellows booking their flight for the ASIANS right now. I have been asked how to go to Pattaya best. Don’t fly to U Taphao (UPT). You still need a ride to Pattaya town with is about 45 minutes - or more. The easiest way is to fly to Bangkok Suvanabuhmi (BKK) and then transfer to Pattaya via taxi/limo. From Suvanabuhmi:
    • Take a taxi down to Pattaya. Should be around 1,000 Baht. You can take a taxi direct from the taxi-lane in the airport. Driver should use the meter but if he is asking for 1,000 Baht (not more) that is fine.
    • Take a limousine. Book the limousine inside the terminal. More expensive than a taxi. ~1,500 (promotion, usually 1,800)
    • Book a taxi from Pattaya via web. E.g.: http://www.pattayaeasytaxi.com/ or http://www.mikepattayataxi.com/rate-of-service/
    • Take a bus from the airport to Pattaya central bus station and from there a taxi/tuk tuk to the hotel. About 5 times per day, around 100 Baht. (not really recommended)

Fast Track Immigration Service:

After a few discussions by email and during Spoofing last Tuesday, our fellow George mentioned the fast track immigration Service in Suvanarbuhmi airpot (BKK). No queuing at immigration, direct pick-up at the plane with an electric cart etc. I used it before and it is quite comfortable for those who doesn't want to wait or are in a hurry.

Thai National Championships 2016

Parent Category: News & Stories Category: Events

Gentlemen,

We are pleased to advise you that the Bangkok Gentlemen Spoofers will be holding the Thai National Spoofing Championships ( Nationals XXVIII ) on the evening of Friday 9th December, 2016. Start 6pm with pre-spoofing drinks. Spoof-off 7pm sharp.

The general committee of the British Club denied our request to spoof in the Spoofers Bar (former the (New) Churchill Bar aka the Lords Restaurant) but we were able to arrange the much larger Surawong-room on the upper floor with smoking balcony.

Cost of the evening should be around 2,500 Thai Baht. BC members will be charged directly to their account. Non BC-Member can pay 2500 Baht in advance or 2700 Baht at the door. As usual we have arranged free flow of beer, house spirits and mixers, buffet dinner, and Port after dinner. And I forgot to mention the spoof.


Dress Code will be Black Tie, Spoofing Blazer, Red Sea Rig or National Dress. Dress code violations will be fined - normally a bottle of Port.

//Updated 26.11.16 with additional information.

Gentlemen,

the TNC 2016 will be held on the day of Friday, December 9, 2016. Most likely in the (New) Churchill bar in the British Club. Or - if the (New) Churchill Bar is not available - in the Surawonse-Room.
As I don’t have a written confirmation from the British Club yet, the date is still tentative.
Further information in due course.

14th Asian Spoofing Championship

Parent Category: News & Stories Category: Events

Gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 14th Asian Spoofing
Championship.

Our herald and hallowed competition will be held on Saturday, September 24th
at the Makati Palace Hotel in Manila.

Makati Palace Hotel

We got a special deal with the Makati Palace Hotel, so click right here and get your booking.

On September 24th the bar opens at 3:30 and Spoof off will be 4 PM. Dinner will be served about 7 PM and our final championship
spoofing round should end at 10 PM, leaving us with just enough time to investigate the armpit(s) of  P Burgos Street.

Dresscode is Black Tie, Spoofing Blazer, National Dress or Red Sea Rig.

Cost in advance is 3000 baht / 4000 pesos, which includes three course
dinner, free flow drinks, Coin Warmer entertainment, and World Class
Spoofing comradery.  Book very soon as we have a limit of 30 punters so I
expect we will sell out.   As usual, all event profits and fines from the
evening will be donated to the Spoofers charity for under privileged
children.

On Friday evening, the 23rd, Les Stokes and the Manila Club Spoofers will
lead the charge, plunging us into an evening of Philippine  Culture and Coin
Warmer Selection.

Please contact us to make a reservation to pay by cash or bank transfer if you are
in Thailand.  If you are outside of Thailand, contact us and we can make
special global arrangements.
