Simon Davies, the Chair and organizer of the Old Bangkok Bangers Rugby Club stand at the Ploenchit Fair, would have to be a very happy man. Bangers turned out in throngs to work the punters at the Bottle Stand on Saturday. And they were good at it. The Bangers included CEO’s and executives who knew a thing or two about spruiking and flogging soap power, hair shampoo and Johnny Walker on the table lotto.
Foot traffic was a bit on the light side at the start. The inclement weather having alot a to do with this. As the day progressed, the crowds rocked up to the stand and chanced their luck. "Everyone wins a prize" was the mantra. Whenever a punter won a bottle of whiskey a triumphal chorus of "We have a winner" was heard above the fair noise.
Roberto Guolo, Club Chairman said: "The whole day encapsulated what the Bangers are all about. We had a lot of fun. The whole day was an amazing effort and tribute to all to gave up their Saturday to raise funds for the Ploenchit Fair Trust."
