Esteemed Gentlemen Spoofers,

on behalf of the reigning Asians Spoofing Champion Carl “Tenpole” Sellick you are accordingly invited to the

15th Asian Spoofing Championships!

Tenpole has chosen the beautiful City of Pattaya - on the Eastern Seaboard Riviera - Thailand for this year's ASIANS. We are pleased to announce that the 15th Asian Spoofing Championship will be held in the afternoon of Saturday, May 27th 2017.

Please add the date to you diaries. We confirm that the venue will be the splendidly named Camelot Hotel (there are several ways to pronounce this), a hostelry of fame and favour adjacent to the well renowned Walking Street where one can sample the many delights of Thai hospitality. Further we will explore the “Underbelly of Pattaya” on the Friday evening before, May 26th, where we will endeavour to locate and contract with a cache of coin warmers.

All Gentlemen of impeccable character are invited to join for this celebratory afternoon of gourmet food, wine, world-class Spoof, free-flow drinks and yes, the famous coin warmers. We hope to welcome the Manila Club Spoofers, the No Cash Spoofers from Dubai (and all the other camel jockeys), the Kuala Lumpur Spoofers and of course a lot of Gentlemen from the far far away lands on their way to the British and Irish Lions Tour 2017 in NZ.

The cost for the day will be the same as last year: 3000 Baht / 100 US$ / 750 Pound Sterling(we don’t know the value io the GBP in 3 month time, so you might want to pay in US$) payable in advance with your country manager or +10% on the door. Please RSVP as soon as possible as seats are limited by sending an Email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..Those who reserved their spot will receive a confirmation email with the final joining instructions. If you are not sure you will make it, you still can send us an email and we will put your name on the tentative list. This will reserve you a spot and you don’t have to worry about being on the waiting list.

The Camelot Hotel has offered us 1,700 Baht for the deluxe room or 1,400 Baht for the superior room including breakfast. The website for booking and other information about the Camelot can be found at http://www.camelotpattaya.net. However, we recommend booking directly with agoda or booking (see links at the end) as you might get a better deal there.

Gentlemen, when the hands are out.

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.
