I will take part. With my New Verna. I had earlier confirmed my attendance to 2L8Uloose. My partner Sahil will also take part with his new CR-V.
Having fun for a good cause is something that doesn't happen often.

EDIT:Just read the regulations and it is necessary to have an MAI license. 2L8, here I come.

With your aspirations of becoming a bloody baada saab in the back of your Verna, Sam, you coming with your chauffeur or what? Or is it Mr. Kapasi to me now?

How long will it take to pair up etc on Saturday?

I'd like to make it, but depends on the Saturday schedule. I'm cool for Sunday...

umm...try reading the regs guys. Its fairly simple...promise!

Saturday for a couple of hours for the drivers briefing and pairing, and Sunday is the actual event itself followed by lunch and the prize distribution.

Hey I wana be a part of this too but am already signed up for the VCCI rally on the same date. Lets see what I can do to juggle things up. I have been part of two such rallies with visually challenged partners/navigators. It was fun and I made some new friends too.
