THE STEPHEN HENDRY THAILAND ROADSHOW 2008

 

Thursday May 22nd.

Stephen Hendry arrived a little earlier than expected and was greeted with a big round of applause without Mike, who was acting as Master of Ceremonies for the evening, asking for a welcome.

(Thanks Mike - you did a magnificent job!)

He immediately went to the pool table and played several games with those present, including Pattaya's new Mayor, Khun Ittipol. The pool area was packed with spectators, as indeed was the rest of the Queen Vic. Standing room only was the order of the evening with over 150 people attending. A large number were outside looking through the windows as well.

After playing pool for almost an hour Stephen entered the main area of the Queen Vic where he sat down signing autographs and signed a number of special Thailand Roadshow shirts. He was quite happy to shake as many hands as were thrust his way, and pose with people for photographs. He needed no prompting to go behind the bar area with all the staff, and Vic & Jane, of the Queen Vic to pose for a group photograph.

During the evening English Cider and Draught Beer were reduced in price and everyone who bought either of these drinks was given a raffle ticket.

Stephen left later than scheduled after spending time answering questions and meeting people.
After Stephen left the raffle tickets were drawn to distribute the signed shirts. An impromptu auction was held after one customer asked to buy one of the shirts. As Kevin Fisher, of Charity Club fame, was in attendance, and people were made aware of the little girl who fell in a fire, the auction was very well supported. The first shirt raised the unbelievable sum of 15,000 Bt, and the total raised was 34,600 Bt.

Unfortunately Christine and Malcolm Boden of the Charity Club of Pattaya were unable to attend to participate in the auction proceedings but they were extremely pleased to hear how well Mike had performed in raising such a large sum.
