The one advantage of a dictatorship in a single thread. This is a poker forum, so poker is at the core of the get together. We have a venue and an expert at laying on poker tournaments. So leave that side of it to Rob. Step forward the extra curricular organiser expert, and let them work their wonders and its sorted. Any volunteers? From what I can see of this thread anything different will most likely be a shambolic mess.

Yes, on the face of it, it seems pretty simple - until you read the thread.

I've never been to a bash, hope to be able to make it as long as the date is good for me.

How about something like this for a schedule:

Friday night: £10 satellite to the main event. Maybe a guarantee of 4 or 5 seats would get this rolling?

Saturday 4pm: £100 main event with a 30 minute clock. Play down to the FT.

Saturday 8pm: £20 mini main event with a 20 minute clock. Play down to FT.

SNGs/Cash games throughout the day.



Sunday 2pm: Both Final Tables + SNGs and/or cash games


If you want to get in the £100 but it's beyond your roll, play the sat on Friday night.

Or put up a staking thread, I'll flick in a few quid buying shares. Sure quite a few others will too. I'd say it's almost certain that regular blonde poster that would want to play the main and is prepared to put in maybe £30 of their own money and sells at 1.0 will get in.

That would leave plenty of time for football match, quiz, Sunday lunch and piss ups.

Quite like that format but what about throwing in a plo game on Sunday as well. Would love to be able to make it, please avoid last weekend in month if possible as work demands always increase towards month ends!!!.

Not read whole thread but will chuck a few ideas in away from the main poker game/games.

FUN SnG's - Cheap and cheerful, self dealt. Only need a couple/few tables to play and a mixture of players each time.
Darts - Stick a dart board up somewhere and run a serious comp of some kind and a random comp where all players throw 3 scoring darts to win hidden prizes per score etc.
Pool Table/s- (if space)  Again, a serious kind of comp and a fun one involving all.
New game try out - Whether this be cribbage.....3 card brag.....whist etc etc etc. A chance to try/learn something new.


You get the idea. Doesnt have to be solely poker related even if in a poker environment. I dont envy anyone trying to put this together though, trying to please all and settle on a date that everyone likes.

Rob, how about combining this with the DtD golf day at Ruddington on the Friday? They are great days in themselves and would be a good kick off to the weekend. Not sure when it is, but usually around May.

 For me DTD is the obvious place to hold it and tbh I'm a bit embarrassed that folks are suggesting it be elsewhere in a thread that Rob started by offering his venue, it's appalling.  

I think the festival idea is something different for a blonde bash that hasn't occurred before and could be a lot of fun. A full weekend gives plenty of time for lots of non poker things to happen and suggestions for those are being welcomed.

Thoughts on skalie/ someone else through Dtd organising a 24 hr cash game that weekend too? At all levels? Would be good for the club with rake etc could cater for all blondes who don't necessarily intend on sleeping!!
Just a thought

Assuming this will be Moved to August due to the Grand Prix announcement and Vegas.

would certainly have one in mind.

4 teams, round robin

probably Saturday morning, not too early, at the local Goals

all depends on interest on the given date

Quick update on this.

Rob asked to meet with me during UKPC to discuss the blondebash, & we had a good session.

Bear with us a couple of weeks, please, as we are currently juggling dates.

Further update with, hopefully, some more meat on the bones, by the end of this month.
