Pontypridd: the birthplace of legendary Welsh singer, Tom Jones.
And, this October, the birthplace of a legendary meetup, too.
Riverside Poker Room presents...
THE RUMBLE BY THE RIVER!
Including myself, this will be a 14-person-max event — so room at the tables (planning on having two) for 13 more chippers. I've probably got space for about four people to stay at mine, but there are plenty of cheap hotels nearby for everyone else.
Thinking of a three / four-day event in October, although open to the dates for a long weekend based on what works best for others.
Regardless of the date, the Saturday morning and lunch will be spent in Cardiff, hopefully with a booking at the very best steak joint in town, Pasture:
If you're expecting any other excursions or activities, however, then this probably won't be the meetup for you, sorry; it's going to be solely about achieving maximum levels of chipping, poker, whisky, and cigar degeneracy!
Priority will be for all UK chippers + the European ones tagged below, followed by other European members — then Rest of World. Cardiff airport is about a 45-minute drive away, just as an FYI.
With that in mind, going to tag the following UK peeps to gauge interest:
Feel free to tag any other UK-based degens I might have forgotten!
Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
