I have been allotted the morning slot. I am driving/riding (depending on number of people) from JP Nagar 7th phase (brigade gardenia/millenium) area. Anyone interested in carpooling?

This one's for a Bangalore-based MOD :

Instead of everyone posting where they are startin from and/or interested in car pooling, how about a MOD create a poll listing major starting points in the city (BTM, Jayanagar, IIM, Marathahalli, HAL, Yeswantpur etc.) so those attending can post their choice.

It would be easier for someone to co-ordinate car pooling then.

Are you in the morning batch or afternoon?

I am in the 2.00pm batch and I will be leaving from Kumaraswamy Layout. I can pick you up from some place close to you.

Check PM for my number.

I went to this program today at Lathangi Ford, Bangalore after checking out DSFL page on the Facebook (since I was late to figure out the TBHP meet thread). It was very informative and included theory and practicals. The number of people who turned up was low in comparison to the RSVPs.

Also, most people who had turned up their had very good feedback on the quality of the discussions on the forum and told me to pass the kudos to the folks here and they also had another feedback of difficulty in getting membership approval.

I had chosen the morning slot but due to certain conditions in my appt, I can't make it for the 10am slot. Is there anyone who'd like to swap?

If there's no one, I'll be going at 2pm anyway

Back from the morning session!
It was a useful session, and the practical session was fun.
Was nice catching up with fellow members.
Thank you Ford and Thank you Team-BHP!
Waiting for the pics.

Just back from the session.
Was nice meeting so many TBHPians.
The practicals were also interesting. Although we didn't learn anything "new" per se, it was a good revision nonetheless.

I did not take any pics since the H4WK was in town

I came back to the showroom from the practicals in the demo Figo that had gone with us. I was quite impressed by its ride quality. The engine (petrol) was a different story altogether.

Was a good session. Audio/visual arrangements could have been slightly better. Got to see many faces behind the handles. Thanks to Ford and TBHP!
