So can we expect a reschedule of timings by about an hour or so. Thus in daylight we can take car pictures. For folk like me who are not planning to continue in the night can leave after a short drink (soft drink / lassi / amrut kokam). And the rest can carry on. I think it sounds like a fair idea.
Amit-San are you listening

Oyeji,
its not fair idea.
Shaadi me aane ke baad, khaye piye bina photu khinchwake chale jaana achhi baat nahi hai.
Those who are interested to come earlier should continue the meet.

AP , kisiki shaadi hain kya (waise 11th ka muhurat hain) ? I think we need the organisers verdict on this whether the photo shoot of the wheels can happen an hour earlier. Kahan kho gaye hain wo log ?

Hey guys,

Though I am assisting in organising this meet, I am not the sole decision maker. We have to collectively take a call on time change. I am ok to start an hour earlier also. But bbay guys will have to start very early.

Cheers!!!

OK sir, I went over the list with a fine comb and this time did notice him. I am game; for a little laugh riot at Sunny I am willing to be the asterix

Drive safe, arrive safer.

Thank you Ashish Bhau for the PM. I'm working on Sat/Sun so dont know whether I am in or not. But considering that I missed Kashid, I will try my best. Also, are the better half's allowed?

crossing my fingers to get a weekend swap.

Thank you Throttleking for taking the initiative on leading this meet, and putting forth the guidelines. All 70 of us highly appreciate it

The following is FINAL. No changes please. We will be going the la carte way. Though I'm certain it'll be cheaper than 900 / head, even if it comes to 900 bucks....atleast we would have ordered multiple dishes (instead of a fixed menu). No more discussion on this matter please.

Adding the following to the opening post

Meet Topic : Mumbai-Pune Team-bhp mega meet
Date and Time : 11th June 2011, 7.30pm Onwards
Venue : Sunny Da Dhaba
Location: Its on old Mumbai-Pune NH4 between Lonavala and kamshet:
The dhaba is @ 9 km from Lonavala toll naka on old Nh4 while driving toward pune. It is at right side of the highway while going from lonavala toward pune. Take proper U turn for the sake of safety, don't drive wrong side though it is few meters.

While driving from pune toward lonavala by old NH4 , the dhaba is on left side of the highway. Its about 24 km from the intersection of dehuroad katraj byepass and highway coming from Nigadi.

IMPORTANT NOTE : Sunny Da Dhaba does not have card facility + its an expensive place, please carry enough cash for yourself.

Reiterating few more important things from previous / parked threads:
Guys, since this will turn out to be a large meet (60+), lets please set some ground rules:

1. Obey ALL traffic rules
2. No racing. Lets drive nice & enjoy our cars / the company of other BHPians. Let the Team-BHP cars set an example to other road users
3. Gentleman language at the meet
4. Food Option : No Fixed cost, hence a-la-carte. You pay as you order!
5. Keep the account clear
I would have actually liked to highlight this whole post, because i cannot stress enough on how important this is.

Please don't take money for granted. It leaves a bitter after-taste. Find out approximately how much it will cost and carry the money with you. Don't make the organisers regret doing what they did. It will affect all future meets.

You could be worth crores, but your negligence to pay a few hundred rupees will leave you branded as a cheapo.

If you must leave early, go up to the organiser and pay in advance. There is no problem with that. Nothing to feel odd about. You came, it's unfortunate you have to leave. Pay up and leave. Keep the account clear. None of your friends should have to pay for you, remember, they WILL discuss it when the bill arrives.

I suggest we make small groups, and one guy in that group should take the lead to manage / clear the accounts.

More guidelines for an enjoyable meet here : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...able-meet.html (How to have a successful and enjoyable meet)

Please call me in case you need any help, nine nine 2 3 six seven six 3 six 3. I will be starting from Pimple.* / Wakad, please let me know in case anyone needs a ride.

See you all there on coming Saturday!!!

Cheers!!!

Does it make sense if I say that I'm waiting for 12th?
Why? Because i want to see the photos.
Why not join? Because I'm in Singapore and it sucks to not be able to drive.
Koi dildaar aadmi panoramic photo post kar dena. Yaadein taza ho jayengi.

Ah well, there is always Malaysia/Johor to rent a car and drive.
(BTW, if anyone is looking for rental car experience there PM me.)

P.S. I'm waiting for 18th. That when I do the Mumbai-Goa drive.

Exclamation Re: Yet another Pune - Mumbai Mega meet @ Sunny Da Dhaba on 11th June

PS : this is for all trekker junta reading this post!!

gents and ladies, a plan (an add-on to the TBHP meet) just cropped up in a talk i was having with a close buddy.
  • stay overnight in Lonavla / Khandala after the meet.
  • early next morning, drive to Kurwande Village; park cars there.
  • climb up Duke's Nose (should take 2-3 hours from the village).
  • stick around at the top for a while, and return to the base village.
  • drive back home!!
Duke's Nose (for the uninformed) looks like this :: and is visible from the S-bend in the road just before Khandala tunnel (when going towards Pune)
Yet another Pune - Mumbai Mega meet @ Sunny Da Dhaba on 11th June-061.jpg

this may look scary, but we'll climb it from the not-so-steep side (an easy climb) for which we don't need equipment apart from good shoes!!

do let me know if interested !!
PS : don't PM me 'cause i am a newbie here and i can't PM you back :-|
