Join us for a great evening of networking and online training in the heart of Bangkok! On August 22, we will host the first meetup of the The Bangkok Online Marketing Club 2.0. We will celebrate the start of a new era with a networking dinner at a cool restaurant in Sukhumvit - with an introduction to Internet entrepreneurship thrown in for free. This will be a chance to meet up, make friends and perhaps forge business partnerships. We will enjoy some good food and drinks, along with a 30-minute presentation that will introduce you the basics of online marketing (by yours truly). The restaurant can only accommodate a strictly limited number of people, so be sure to RSVP and book your place before we max out (we almost certainly will get booked out!) COST & OBJECTIVES There is no fee to attend...you simply pay for any food & drink you order. Please note that there is nothing for sale at this event, and you won’t be asked to sign up for anything. There is no agenda except to create a friendly community of online marketers and entrepreneurs in Bangkok.

Welcome to our Table tennis group. We are a friendly group who love Table Tennis. We usually play Saturday afternoon and some weekday evenings at Chulalongkorn University at the Google maps location below. If coming by BTS National Stadium is walking distance or Sam Yan if you're coming by MRT. https://maps.app.goo.gl/DznhhMgpcEiH4SDp9 We meet on Saturdays and some of us who want to improve our game meet mid week in the evenings, from 5.30 up to 9pm, (usually Monday and Wednesdays). We usually tell each other if we'll go using our Line app group (which you can join too if you join us). The venue is a dedicated table tennis room (no air con but has large fans at the seating area for cooling down) with 10+ good tables. The fee to play is just 50 Baht for regular sessions payable to Chula staff directly (our organisers receive no money from members for the venues). Please sign in the guestbook on the table inside the entrance when you arrive and give 50 Baht to the staff or put in the box in the table. You're welcome to arrive late, stay beyond the finish time or arrive earlier than the scheduled times (they are open from about 10am to 6pm Members can play anyone who is at the venue. Changing rooms with showers are available and bring a bottle of water or a refillable container as there is cold filtered water available free in the table tennis hall. There are rackets to borrow free of charge at the venue but they are not great quality so if you plan to play regularly you can buy a cheap pre-made racket at most major shopping malls or get a custom made one at one of several shops in Bangkok. Regular members may be able to lend a racket newcomers the first time if you let us know before that you need one. We look forward to welcoming you to our Meetup soon. Thanks for joining
Come join our board game "Line" group, you'll have to download the free "Line" app if you haven't already. Once you've joined our group, you can chat, help organize, post, and/or attend our board game events, no charge unless we are meeting at a board game cafe that charges a fee. There are usually weekly games at a variety of different locations in Bangkok, but it all depends on who's chatting and organizing the next event. We've been meeting for more than four years, and now there are over 150 of us, spreading the joy of playing board games and meeting new friends, hope you can join us. And if board games aren't your thing, and if you're interested, you are invited to join our Trump Therapy "Line" group to help prepare yourself for the 2020 elections in the United States. Share your thoughts and links, vent, cry, scream, and commiserate with like minded people in our group. Add me to your "Line" contacts and I will add you to our group. But due to my busy schedule it won't be possible for me to answer all your questions on Meetup, but you are welcome to ask the people in our "Line" group. My "Line" ID is bradley.jordan
