I just sent the SMS, and I got an invite. Just sent it now

I highly doubt it will be just 300 people. We may end up there and see probably
3000 people or more.

Well, as for faking it, best of luck. I am sure they are aware of the blokes trying this stunt. They may make a note of the mobile number of all those to whom the invite was sent. At the venue, you show the SMS, person checks it up against the list and voila. You are in. Simple guys.

I sent now, and got the standard response. It looks like an auto-response.

Anyway, where exactly on NICE road is this going to be?

Update: One of my friends got the invite using an airtel no so i guess its just not limited to only vodafone users.

Now what else can they check..?
Let's not discuss these on the Forum. They will go one step ahead in checking

I just hope that this is not an auto reply with the organizers restricting people to the first 300. That will be a disappointment.

Got the same reply as others, that show this SMS for entry, i use a Vodafone. Anyhow so who will be coming from Tbhp for this event? I guess its on that unused stretch between Banerghatta intersection, saw some work going on when coming that side on Sunday.

I saw a billboard on airport road promoting this. So this better be genuine.

Heard from a friend who got unconfirmed news that it would be close to Bannerghatta road toll booth and an helipad is being constructed for Lewis to swoop in and out of the venue. So look out and ask for the helipads dudes

I sent that message from an airtel phone this morning and got the same confirmation. I definitely will be there, wife expecting to deliver second baby on the 26th notwithstanding. Its a good idea to ensure T-BHPians are identifyable in some way. Like someone mentioned, t-shirt colour? Something? We got to come up with something to ensure we meet and greet atleast.

Planning to drive down to NICE road near Bannerghatta Road this weekend to find out where exactly the action is supposed to happen. Will have some update about parking and the preparations at the venue.

I feel its better to be at the venue by 9AM on 27th to avoid traffic jams and confusions
