  1. Unfortunately having thoroughly reviewed the current travel situation & recent surges it’s looking like the LBWVB event will be postponed until March 2021 - proposed Saturday 20th March This is due to uncertainty of: International travel Quarantine regulations upon arrival/return Pre-flight certificates/insurance requirements Staging an event for more than 50 people - crowd gatherings currently not allowed This will also give us a chance to recover lost time for fund raising for the respective charities. Hopefully many restrictions will have been lifted by March allowing most the freedom to travel. The Areca also feel March would be a more suitable date; this we can review again in December. Be safe.
  2. Areca is actually 3 separate hotels. Areca - Soi Diana entrance Evergreen - Soi 15 entrance Corona - in the middle of Areca and Evergreen Our Pool area is the usual one called the Blue Ocean Pool which is between Evergreen and Corona Best to walk through from Areca entrance in Soi Diana for ticket entry as the Soi 15 pool entrance is closed

  6. Apologies for not posting here before.Sad that the event will not move forward but a remarkable result from a niche market of like minded generous people.Many thanks for your support and contribution - no other group has come close to what we jointly achieved.I hope that you all retain pleasant memories of an incredible event over 7 years.It was a blast.20 teams participated overall. Some of whom no longer exist. Anaconda, Cocktails & Dreams, Horny Bar, Stringfellows, So What.I met hundreds of BMs form this forum, and others, and value the friendships made along the way.The Areca Lodge, who hosted the event every year, are disappointed as are many charities that we have directly helped.

  17. Apologies as I thought that I had posted this already: Previous post of thanks from Pattaya Orphanage - the video just completed. In 2016 media coverage was not allowed but this was salvaged video from the evening. You, your team and especially the LBWVB Pattaya who inspire and empower all of us to keep taking good care of the underprivileged kids. Hope you'll enjoy your everyday life..“ Thank you very much... thank you very much for the nicest things that you have ever done for the kids”.. Better to let the children tell you that directly: LBWVB 2016 "Thank You Very Much" Sang by The Pattaya Orphanage youtu.be The kids from The Pattaya Orphanage perform the song "Thank You Very Much" at the Ladyboy Water Volleyball 2016 event to show their appreciation for all the ... For 2 years the children, with carers, have attended the evening and happily entertained us. The hotel take care of our special visiting performers with ice cream etc. LBWVB recommends the songs, for the children to learn, which they have now performed at many other charity events. The Orphanage explained that learning the songs also helps with English language skills - hopefully more songs will soon be added to their playlist. With your support a lot more than just Charity fund raising has been achieved. For 1 day in the year: LBs have an opportunity to 'shine', in a positive way, within the community. Help those people worse off especially children. Have a fun day out for all - attendees, organizers, hotel, teams.....
