OT : Thanks @moralfibre! Might have missed this otherwise.

Of course they can ! This isn't a teambhp event
Its organized by the NAB and it just so happens that a lot of bhpians had participated last year.
Some of them like Aditya, Dippy have been participating in it since its inaugural year in 2007/08 IIRC.

@ ALL
Please try your level best to participate , it is an entirely different feeling.
Am sure you will all leave NAB as very happy and satisfied individuals post the event, irrespective of what position you finish in.
You will also be surprised at how efficient the navigators are reading it all out in braille at just about the right time provided your speeds are controlled.

No additions to the list. I am assuming the earlier participants are not updating this thread and have already sent in their forms

Come on guys was hoping it would be a big Team BHP meet at the rally.

Missed this event last year. If I am available on sunday, I'd definitely want to join in. Can confirm that in a few days

But I definitely cant come on Saturday. Is it possible to have a respectable run on Sunday without attending the Saturday session?

You could always tag along (while making sure you don't interfere with the actual participants), but then it isn't the same as actually participating!

Saturday is the day when the visually impaired navigator pairing with the driver is done. So coming directly on Sunday would not help unless you want to accompany someone else in their car without being the driver.

Adding to the list! This will be my fourth time participating. Hoping for a better result this time, i.e. qualifying for a ranking!

Hello BHPians,

i would love to join this great cause. am sure would be the first EON to participate as well

what is the distance of the overall drive?
Also i want to know about the pairing part on saturday. do we need to be there to meet the navigator along with the car, is there any test drive with the navigator?
when is the last date for registration?

Since i am relatively new driver, i would look forward to support from another friend of mine, would confim on this over the week end.
But the whole event sounds very exiting. Charity being at the fore, I am also looking forward to meet BHPians.
i have been associated with NAB earlier for their other events, so this drive is going to be another good experience.
Will keep updating.

I will most probably not be in town that weekend. Also not sure if I would have taken delivery of my car until then, but I think this is a very good cause, and I look forward to participating in the subsequent editions.

I had confirmed initially but due to unforeseen circumstances, I'll have to opt out this year. :(

Have fun you guys.

Approx 50 kms over 2-3 hrs.

Yes, to meet navigator and to go for a 2 kms test drive and get mobile no etc of navigator so that there is no absence (trouble locating pairs) on sunday.

1st Feb.

Since i am relatively new driver, i would look forward to support from another friend of mine, Sure great. would confim on this over the week end.
