Thanks GTO, Great Initiative and I should say that I missed out on the Bangalore Inagural edition and was feeling bad for it. But this time I sent mail on time.

A query on this, I have sent a mail, can I go directly as mentioned by you or shall I wait for the confirmation call? The reason for me asking is, I am in Bangalore and have to go to chennai, only for this event which I do not want to miss.

The MPL dealer is exactly 4 kms away from my house. I would have loved to be a part of this program, but unfortunately i am in China and will return only on 24th. Would have been a good chance to meet fellow Chennai BHPians.

Finally where is this venue.Is it in the road transport center in Taramani near the American School or some where else. Any one who knows pl post for other's sake.

Thank you for the information GTO.Just now I have sent the mail as it should be 34th one. I will wait for the call. Can I register for another member who is not a member.

Sir, its on the SRP-Velachery road itself. If you are coming from Tidel, take right on the SRP tools signal which will lead to Velachery. After taking right, this is just the 2nd or 3rd building on to your left hand side.

The road will not be proper in front of the Ford showroom. I wonder if we would be able to get parking space there.

GTO: Should we take our cars? Parking is a problem out there and if we 40 bhpians are going to land there in our cars, then it would almost be a road-roko

And, can you put out the list of bhpians coming for this program by Friday or so?

Thanks!!

You are right I know the place and location.I have to come from Medavakkam. I think the parking is going to be a problem. But we can park near the American School are below the railway track and walk.For me I have to take U turn in SRP signal which is a critical place. Other wise I will take MGR road and join OMr turn left and come from the other way.
