Thanks. Interesting.

Any other stories about regulars at Oasis?

In the early 1980s I met 3 Aussies who were regulars, I mean drinking at the Oasis just about every night, who had robbed a bank down under and were living a fun life on the lam in Chiang Mai town.

Typical story from some Aussies here to have a good time, no matter the story :o

Good point as I have never met an Aussie in the bars of Chiang Mai not having a good time. Then there was at least one Aussie, working in Chiang Mai at about the same time who went back to Australia where they did not appreciate his living in the fast lane and he ended up becoming a guest of the Australian government under rather confining conditions.

Snowflake.

Wally Buddy.

I see only 2 ladies, Cricket and Snowflake mentioned.

These 2 Thai ladies were both real characters married to expats.

Surely there have been some western women pass away here over the years.

Shame on Blinky Bill forgetting Max Brown

This thread gets more depressing as it goes along. Probably only a handful there that I never met, and some of the others were very close friends. Life goes on so they say, but it's good to be remembered.

From someone who doesn't drink alcohol or hang out in the nitelife here, It's not surprising when I say that in my time here, I haven't met any of those mentioned here in my 22 years of living in Chiang Mai... And feeling pretty happy about it.

I seem to remember a certain gentleman who managed one of Chiang Mai's most notorious nightspots for a while who bore more than a passing resembalance to yourself.

You might be a morally upstanding member of CM's moral minority, but he was a real rascal! :o

Yeah, that was an interesting experience, for sure. A LONG time ago :o

I don't consider myself to be a morally upstanding person...

Just a person :D

I haven't seen any mention of the gentleman who owned the Coq D'Or..? I never met him, but it seems he was quite a character. He left some of his books to Premcenter School library.

I think his surname was Telfer - can't remember his first name.

What about Adrian Gundelach - one of the founders of the Cricket Sixes

Adrian was Bangkok based.

Wasn't Max mentioned earlier? If not, my apologies.

Blinkster, you are quite right about Adrian Gundelach being based in Bangkok. Thought I would mention him as his son, Mark, lived in Chiang Mai for a while before going down the Tobacco Road (to Malawi, I think).

There was Scotsman, Terry McKinney, who lived in Chiangmai until Max Brown hired him. He topped himself in Lampang last year.

First up to ensure I am on topic:

two guys you most probably don't know but good mates of mine

Pommy Paul - played sax with me and was killed on his motorbike heading up to Mae Sai doing an early morning visa run. He was clipped by a car or truck and left on the side of the road. As far as I know no one has ever been charged or identified as the person responsible.

Ben - don't know his surname - used to drink with me at the #1 - went back to Oz feeling ill and the doctors here couldn't find anything wrong with him. Died in hospital a couple of days from getting back to Brisbane.

Now the Red Lion/O'Mally Thread

I used to read that regularly and sorely miss it. I think it went beyond the initial thread which was a toussle between the two pubs and why one was better than the other. It developed into a "CM drinking hole forum" which IMHO is a needed area of discussion.

With this in mind I have started up the "good places to drink in Chiang Mai" forum http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=112385

I would be very happy to see you good gentlemen continue the Red Lion/O'Malley's postings at this forum

regards

Crow Boy
