Basically I think people just want a big home game where they can do what they want and commandeer a few tables and decks of cards for their own games of whatever floats their boats.

I remember at Leeds a few years back there was a crowd of maybe 12 people managed to gather round a table playing dealers choice where the dealer literally made up whatever rules he/she wanted. We were playing for pennies and having an absolute blast!!

Along comes Mr casino floor man insisting that the cash comes off the table to be replaced by chips and that every hand must be raked. 2 minutes later the game breaks and we're at the bar.

It's not about serious poker it's about fun and unless DTD can relax the rules a bit (maybe with a few tables away from the main card room......) it's not quite going to work.

DTD are not going to make money out of this event that's a 100% certainty. What they may gain is a hell of a lot of good will and a reputation for being able to have fun without the requirement of winning a £5k package to St Kitts.......



surely the logical thing is for party to sponsor it all? fixes problems with a lot of members and helps build a good image in the UK. It would show me they at least cared/were serious about improving their image here. They can even use it to get market research etc.

Good feedback Guys. Keep it coming.

My favorite Blondebash was actually at The Broadway - but I own DTD so cant arrange one someway else.

My head is like this:

1. I want to always try grow the Blondepoker membership a little, without is losing its personal feel, so if we can encourage a few more Blondepoker sign ups I dont see a major halm to it, or encourage 'lurkers' to post on threads because they have met a few other members
2. I don't care about people having different views, that's the way this site as has always been, and a good slagging off of DTD never did us any halm, as long as its constructive it usually makes DTD get better, and yes, DTD is a big old place for sure so harder to do 'cosy stuff'
3. I would like winning the Blondebash to mean something thou, more than winning an XXL 25, even for bragging rights, personally I would prob rather win the Blondebash than a UKIPT, GUKPT, UKPC or GPS but I guess that's cause I have been here from beginning
4. I have not discussed a Blondebash with party but I guess we could get them to chip in something, but I think we can find enough money under DTD's sofas to say thank you to Blondepoker members
5. By High Roller, I'm thinking £250-£300 level, Main I am thinking £75-£100, and Mini I am thinking £25-£50, but I am not fixed on this
6. Looking to add some bounties, added prizes and have some fun side stuff, pull in a few favours from high profile players
7. Finances done come into it, I wouldn't even calculate the costs of putting this on, happy to spend a few quid on it, this is not dumb, Blondepoker helps DTD indirectly with opinions and feedback, you can't put a price on that, Blondepoker also means that DTD don't have to have our own forum, which would be a pain to moderate
8. Would be only for Blondepoker members, agree

These are just my thoughts, sure will change after I dissect this thread with TK and Tightend. Any yeh, if someone organised another Blondebash in Leeds etc, I would come with Mr Trumper as long as we were in the UK. Blackbelt events were fun rather than serious poker, so were SPT's, both well attended at DTD, and both run at a loss by DTD, but they don't exist anymore, so something along those lines would not be a bad idea.

Cheers Rob

yep the first bB and the best bB IMHO although the first bB to be held at DTD ran it close
but it was more personal in broadway as for the majority of members it was the first time we had met

Are you saying that if a long -standing member of blonde like myself wants to bring a couple of friends who have never played poker in a serious environment before, although they have played a few home-games and could possibly become regulars in the future should not be allowed to play.

Surely both blonde and DTD should be welcoming newcomers with open arms.

Hi Karibener,

I would do whatever the majority of forum members want. Ideally, if someone wants to bring friends, maybe they could take a few seconds to join Blonde, but hey, whatever people want. Not looking to get picky, just a fun friendly weekend. I think will consult TK and Tightend on everything and print this thread out beforehand, they seem to have a the best knowledge of forum. For me, should be Blondemembers but I won't not sleep at night if the key blondepoker people want to bring a few mates.

on + ve side, we have a 7 page thread on this Blondebash subject, so there is interest, even if opinion is divided a little of format. Glad me, TK and Tighty didnt just organise this without starting a thread!

I refer to me original post, "its challenging because of Blonde's diverse membership", and I want to devise something for everyone. Blonde has pros, recreationals, pennyrollers, high rollers, HORSE lovers (!), players mates, wives and girlfriends, I would like to get everyone together and give them some DTD hospitality.

Cheers Rob

Rexas made an interesting point about how would about a structure where blonde activity/ length of membership/ number of posts could earn you extra starting chips or something? As a bonus for blondes who play opposed to non blondes maybe?
Will be supporting whatever isdecided! Sounds great fun for my first bash

Hmmm, I did think we give every single entry to a free pint to get things going, but could be carnage for my security and not sure whether its actually legal with all UK gambling laws nowadays. We can get round people not being to be able to travel to DTD for 2 days by running an Online Day 1, all needs some thought to get everyone here for over a single weekend, I dread annoucing the date as you know 33% of people will be statistically be busy that weekend, let me try and get this £1M Sky sweat out the way and will print everything off on here before the £1M  PokerStars UKIPT sweat starts 6 week later, too many too many million pound tournies hanging around at the moment.........

Reminds me of a club18-30 holiday I went on many a year ago. You had to have a breathalyzer test before you could go on the go cart track.
 If you passed the test you were not allowed on the track!! Was carnage
