I see that shekaran has seen the thread and voted for all 3 options - being in Pondy, any day is good for him.

@ukderebail, that is the standard package they offer - I hope we can work out a proper deal once the number of participants is confirmed.

@drrajasaravanan, everyone is welcome - tbhp-ians, their friends, family etc

Wonder if nickatnite is in India currently. Would be good to have him on board like last time.

Given that both stories involve the same Esteem & same driver, are you implying that it is not the vehicle, but the driver ? You rile the driver enough and I won't be surprised if he flies down from Birmingham to drag the white-mistress against your Punto.

Not at all. It would be an insult for the Suzuki to take on a car much below it in capability.

A bit hectic at work, so I am not able to decide right away, but definitely not the 11/12th weekend for me.

Great to see regular meets happening in Chennai. Guys, for this pondy drive - only cars are 'allowed' or bikes are welcome to join in?

Bikes are welcome too. I did a Pondy ride long ago on my CD100 - rode down, had lunch & drove back - was pretty tiring. A better bike should be comfortable I guess. What bike do you ride ?
I see that we have a tie as far as the poll is concerned - all options have polled 6 votes each.
@headers, neoranjith, esteem_lover, arka etc, please indicate your preference on the poll.

Guys, what's the opinion about the 2 stay options we have currently ie. Oasis & Soorya ? Do we shortlist 1 of them or do we need to look at other options too ?
Being a weekend, we would need to make bookings - Option 1 (11-12June) is just 10days away.

The Oasis Resorts :: Pondycherry home away from your home :: Cottage,Hotel,Farm House,Home Stay
Biju, Are you sure this would be a good place for a meet? Pretty far from the beach.

I believe St. James has gotten better with a new pool and all.

@shekaran, we need your help here. How would you rate Oasis resort and Soorya resort ? Also compared to St.James, how do these fare ? Our requirements are :
1) Decent accomodation (for man) and parking (for the machine)
2) Decent food
3) Enough space - resort-like setup with beach access

Cost-wise, at 900 per person (3 in a room) St.James is close to double the other 2 options (500 - 550 Rs).

Hey vikram, do convince your family to join in irrespective of whichever option we finally decide on. Let's wait on shekaran's feedback before making a call on the venue.
