Daves Raves – One Knight In Bangkok

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Stephen Hendry 001 - Daves Raves - One Knight In BangkokSnooker legend Stephen Hendry has returned to Bangkok from two very busy, but enjoyable days in Koh Samui and Pattaya.  The pubs in Koh Samui and especially Pattaya, gave Stephen a deserved warm welcome.  In particular, the venues in Pattaya really made an effort to promote the Stephen Hendry Roadshow and it certainly paid off for them.  In the Queen Victoria Pub in Pattaya, two autographed polo shirts were auctioned off.  A total of  34,000 baht was raised for charity.  Ralf Winkler, the official photographer for the Stephen Hendry Roadshow commented, “Stephen has a lot of fans in Pattaya, he was very busy meeting them all.”  Roadshow organisers Rob Murray (Fluid Asia Pacific) and Bryan Sharp (Scottish and Newcastle Brewery) are very pleased how well the event has gone.  Rob said, “We have received very positive feedback about Stephen from all of the venues that he has attended.”

We hope that Stephen enjoyed his time in Thailand, as much as we have enjoyed meeting him.  Stephen is a true gentleman and I am sure that many people will eagerly await his return to Thailand. 

As for Stephen’s female fans, they were pleased to see that there was at least “One Knight In Bangkok!”

STEPHEN HENDRY MAKES AN IMPACT IN THAILAND

Stephen Hendry 002 - Thailand Night FeverIt is certainly not every day that a famous sports celebrity rolls into town.  When did you last meet a living legend from the world of sport?  This week it is an honour for a selection of pubs in Thailand to host Stephen Hendry.  For some people who are not familiar with snooker, Stephen Hendry is deemed by many people, as the most successful player in the history of the game.  In any sport, it is a fantastic achievement to become World Champion.  However, Stephen has achieved this feat a record breaking seven times, which is truly remarkable.  I am sure most of you know that snooker is an extremely skilful and highly competitive game.  But, the “Flying Scotsman” made it look all so easy.  For eight consecutive years, Stephen Hendry dominated snooker by remaining top of the world rankings.  Stephen started playing snooker at the tender age of 12.  At 16 years old, he became the youngest ever professional snooker player.  Stephen then went on to become the youngest World Snooker Champion at the age of 21.  It is fair to say that a very special sports celebrity has arrived in Thailand… (more…)
