Spoke to the organizer. The entry fees@2k/head (not per jeep) seems very steep considering that event is only for one day with Breakfast and lunch provided. Hope I am not being stupid

Regards

I received the entry form and couple of items intrigued me.

1) Utility & Pickup vehicles are strictly not allowed.
2) Balloon Radials & Rover button tyres are stricly not allowed.


Grace, the first point would disqualify your Katte-Kiruba. Is the MM540 ready for action?

BTW, what are rover button tyres? Never heard of them. Balloon radials are probably the dabwali istyle oversized tyres.

Uhhmmmm, well you are right on the first point though.
540 will be ready by sep 15.
But either way 2k is still very expensive? Sour grapes for me? heck yes !!!!

People who have registered for the event, don't forget to book your accommodation for 20th night. The 2000 per head fee doesn't include accommodation, that came as a surprise.
