Bangers on Bikes 2017! Yangon to Bangkok

Merry Bangers,
 
The time for good resolutions has arrived ... For some of us, this is about participating in the traditional charity ride organised by the Old Bangkok Bangers Rugby Club. The Bangers on Bike Charity Ride has, for 8 years, succeeded in subsidising several NGOs worth 4 million bahts. For having visited several of their centres in Phuket and Bangkok, we know that this money is well invested and changed the lives of hundreds of children by buying school supplies, paying uniforms, school fees or even building a canteen and a small library named "Bangers on Bikes Dinning Hall". But there is still so much we can do...
 
This year, we will cycle from Yangon in Myanmar to Bangkok via the mountain range in central Thailand. The challenge is spread over 5 days with more than 1,000 km and 2 or 3 interesting hills. Cheery on the cake, we will start on the 19th of February from Yangon and plan to arrive on the 24th in Bangkok for the opening ceremony of the Bangkok International 10’s. Details of the route can be found here: https://www.plotaroute.com/routeprofile/343876
 
Each member of the group agrees to bring the equivalent of 30,000 baht knowing that the integrality of this money is going to the charities and that the expenses related to transport and logistics will be taken care of by the cyclists.
 
YOU can help us to accomplish this challenge and change lives by giving via an online pool at the following address (secure payment): https://www.lepotcommun.fr/pot/0k742jx7 . (French by default but you’ll find an English version at the bottom of the page.) Donations in cash or cheque (please make payable to the Old Bangkok Bangers by Chakrit Wongsakornraksa) can also be received by any of the BoB’s at our regular trainings.

A brochure for corporate sponsorship is available and describes our history as well as the profile of each cyclist Https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_JKNEw0c6hOb0Z0cWNfdjBDV0U/view
 
Have a very good start of the year and special thanks to those who will support this cause. The biggest gift for all the riders is the smile of all these children to whom we give a chance in life and a hope for a happier future.
 
That’s all folks,

Thomas

28th January 2017: Colts and Belles

The Bangers Colts and Belles were both in action this weekend with a couple of friendly games each: The Colts were playing Chulalongkorn University young boys and the Army team and the Belles faced up against Chulalongkorn and Nakhon Pathom Universities womens teams.

With the games being organised only a few days prior the Colts were pleased, and grateful, to welcome some new faces to the team.

Many Thanks to the boys and girls who turned up and a big "Thank You!" to the Thai teams for such an enjoyable day.

2017 look ahead

With 2017 now well and truly with us and our very own Bangkok 10s fast approaching we need to get new players involved!

With many new people moving to Bangkok in the new year all of us can ask these potential new players if they wish to join and bring them along. If we all bring just one new Banger imagine the impact on the Club. Make your New's Year resolution to give up a few hours a week to train with your mates for Fun, Friendship and Fraternity (you may even get fitter and better at Rugby too....)!

We have some excellent new recruitment posters which you should spread around as much as possible:


A few dates for your diaries to ensure that we have great numbers for all!!!

* Training is back ON both Wednesdays at NIST and Sundays at Bangkok Patana School (playing fields)
