Just confirming my presence in the OTR this weekend on both the 5th and the 6th.

Will be staying the night at AZ with you guys as well.

Is this enough of a confirmation or do I have to pay someone early / email someone else about this?

Looking forward to the OTR!

Hi Amrth,

If Mcity is Mahindra City, then you have to get to Tidel Park or easier to get to Kelambakkam Township and we will pick you up from there.

Keep in mind it is and over-nighter and come "suit"ably prepared.

Regards,

Arka

It's been raining so much! I wonder how slushy it's going to be in Palar especially. Atleast the weather is going to be good.
