No Way! Party = Drink = Thai's = drunken fighting idiots. I stay away from this type of party. Been to many and all end up with Thais fighting.

What about a vote for "NO!" Because I say no it does not mean I don't want to meet other Thai visa members.

You mean the women?

Mud wrestling anyone.:P

I live in Udon but would drive to Khon Kaen to attend. Korat is too far from here. But If you have the party in Udon I will pay for a band and dancing girls. Even a fat one or two if so requested.

The stunningly beautiful, amazingly talented and awesomely smart Mrs NL and her half-wit hubby call Udon home. I havent voted on a location because we are up for a roadtrip; I think half the fun would be meeting new people in a NEW location rather than have a meeting where more than half the buggers 'live here' and maybe get all pontifical and lord it over the visitors once they get pished... like we do online!

Talking of entertainment, I managed to get Ja Turbo for Mrs NL's sixth 21st birthday party last year. Apart from her own comely charms, Ja comes with requisite dancing eye candy which is good stuff for the locals as well as the deprived and oppressed 'resident' foreigners. I am sure we all know the words by now... my 4 year-old lad does!

PS. Actually bumped into one of the 'guests' at last years bash at the Big-C checkout earlier today. He struck out trying to buy a bottle of Lao Khao at 10:30 am but I sorted it out with the checkout girl and met him downstairs and gave him his 'breakfast'.

I'm up for it won't be in Khu Khan until mid October though - so realise you cannot run a party around single members - but if it's later in the year I'll be there

I spend more time in Australia than Thailand ATM, although right now I'm back in Udon. I'm using an iPad so I can't see the poll questions, but:

1. Should timings work out, and I was here at the time,I'd attend

2. Khon Kaen is pretty central and I'd head there, or Udon, maybe even somewhere else in the near vicinity, if one exists

3. Free beer is good, but I'm not adverse to paying for it. Probably would be better if we I'd pay for it and keep the balloon chasers away lol

4. A feed would be mandatory if it was an extended party,or considering people may actually be traveling distances to get there, again I don't see a problem with paying for it, as long as its reasonable

5. As for entertainment, don't really see the point in that.i mean, people would be here to meet and talk, get to know each other. Kinda hard if there's a band or other loud noise going on

Talking of entertainment, I managed to get Ja Turbo for Mrs NL's sixth 21st birthday party last year. Apart from her own comely charms, Ja comes with requisite dancing eye candy which is good stuff for the locals as well as the deprived and oppressed 'resident' foreigners.

I have to ask, how much did that set you back, and how long did the show go for? Feel free to PM me if you don't want to lead the thread off topic

yes I have been partying for 40 years now and things have changed from the very formal setups that used to be the norm.

Sitting everyone at little tables is a good way of stopping people from mixing. Sticking the tables together, medieval style, encourages people to move around and sit elsewhere. Very simple, I have seen it countless times.

Someone should be in charge of things, answering questions and in an informal way leading people through the evening. (leading a sing song? maybe not these days), finding a way to get people to mix.

Booze: lovely. Paying 500 Baht all-in is very unfair, my wife for instance won't drink any at all, I understand that there may be Australians and Brits present? I can easily drink for 500 Baht.

Music yes, also possibility to dance. Not so loud that you can't chat up the ladies.

Any talent out there (not that kind)? Invite people to bring musical instruments, tell jokes...

I don't know what to say about the dreaded Karaoke

I agree with a central issan location later in the year, maybe after the rainy season. Although it's a 'party' perhaps it would be possible to have someone speak on a topic of 'common interest' - visas, immigration dept, houses, etc, and of course, agree with a previous post, must have beer leo!

Are you out of your mind, or from the wrong country? Should be beer LAO............( forgive me I'm Buddhist...) biggrin.png

IMO maha sarakham / roiet would be good venues, central to everyone in isaan then so not too much travel required, almost all of the other locations are on the Thailand/Isaan border (although admittedly at least Khon Kaen has all major highways leading there, although bad luck if you live in ubon lol)

yea that is a weird list of city choices in the poll, all on the fringe of Isaan.

Mahasarakham is just about in the center of Isaan, 3-4 hours from all edges. I live between Maha and Roiet and there is a massive pool complex across the 23 from our house with an Olympic size pool, huge kiddy pool, and picnic areas. Along with lots of beer and whiskey (and 100+ farangs in the area). That pool might be ideal because attendees could stay in Roiet (where there's a decent brothel), Maha (where there's a nice 4-star hotel), or the bungalow motel in our village (at 350 a night).

Oh Roiet also has an airport..

Well to me it should be somewhat central as Isaan is a big area. Much as I hate to say it Khon Kaen is a more likely choice, numerous hotels, main highways, Airport with daily flights and centrally located for most people. Think about someone in NKP going to Korat and the same for Korat to Udon, just to far.

Invite khun Abhisit. I saw him speak at the Foreign Correspondents Club and it is clear that he needs to reach out to the rural vote in Isaan.
