Hi Sean,

You and the Sri-Lankan Team were very instrumental in raising the standards of TPC2009 and TPC2010.

We got a chance to see Pro Off-Roaders in action, and learned a lot of tricks.

Will see you in Taprobana this year.

Regards,

Arka

Was completed successfully.

We [EX670C, Headers and Blue_Thunder] set out on the recce on 08.05 as scheduled.

Covered 22 kms from ECR Road side amd checked a few spots. The River was swollen in certain parts and we had water..well water crossings and lots of birds..of varying colors. I was infact surprised to see so many at Palar. We checked the road entries as well and after 3 hours of exploring the area, we headed to AZ thereafter and called it a day.

The next recce is scheduled on May 22, 2011.

Default Recce#2

Hi Guys,

We completed Recce#2 on 22-05-2011, Maj.Roy, Vikram R & Ganesh joined up.

Covered 13+kms on the riverbed and checked out possible entry/exit points.

The sand quarrying has created a variety of obstacles in the region.

Arka

It was refreshing to see water flowing at Palar. Lots of sightings, lots of birds, lots of sand, lots of water.
