No changes as of now - proceeding as per plan. Will call up esteem_lover today to get details on the discounted room rate and then proceed with booking rooms. Will post details on this thread.

Talked to John (e_l) yesterday - he will get back with discounted rates today and we should start blocking rooms by doing advance payment.

@vikram, it is indeed great news to know that Arka would join. Is Deep also joining ?

@shekaran, Especially after seeing us in action last Pondy meet. But then age should have mellowed many of us, I guess.

John called just now and he has asked the resort guys to temp-block 3 Deluxe rooms for us @ a discount of 10% (Rs.230). Thanks, John !!!

So, for 3-to-a-Deluxe-room, after discount, it comes to (2300-230) + 400 (extra person) + 127 (tax) = 2597 / 3 = Rs.865 per person.

John mentioned that since the weekend is a busy time, we need to move quickly and block the rooms by crediting payment to the hotel account, latest by tomorrow. Those that have confirmed their presence, please do a netTransfer of the amount to my account - I will consolidate the amount and have it credited to the hotel account.

I will send a PM to the confirmed folks so that people don't miss this. Will also give my a/c details in the PM.

EDIT : PMs sent to ex670c ; headers; neoranjit ; drrajasaravanan ; amohit ; ph03n!x ;
Could not send to anachronix (PM storage limit exceeded); mukaan (settings do not allow incoming PMs)

Guys, a gentle reminder to confirm your presence by transferring the money (865) by today so that we can block the rooms. Without paying upfront, St.James don't block rooms.

Payment update : Anachronix has initiated payment process and my payment is also in.

Pending : ex670c ; headers; neoranjit ; drrajasaravanan ; ph03n!x

Others who would join, but dont need accomodation : esteem_lover, Mr.Bean & Shekharan.

@headers, you coming with family ? If so, you guys would need a room to yourself, with the rate being Rs2177 (including taxes and after the 10% discount).

drrajasaravanan has called and confirmed just now that he is transferring the money.

John called now to ask status as the resort guys want a confirmation - am planning to call Arka, headers, neo and Phoenix, so that we can proceed with their confirmation.

Called up the Chennai folks :
Arka - he can't make it on Saturday, but might drop in on Sunday for lunch/drive back.
Ph03ni!x - He is in.
Neoranjith - did not pick up the phone. I guess he will call back
headers - still deciding whether to come alone or with family. Will confirm by tomorrow.

So, for now we have SB, Anachronix, drrajasaravanan, Ph03n!x & 2 of my friends as confirmed.
Hopefully headers and neoranjith are also in.
Others who are in (but don't need acco) are esteem_lover, Mr.Bean & Shekharan.

John has got us an extension till tomorrow to credit payment to the hotel for the rooms. Request everyone to transfer the money at the earliest so that we can block the rooms.

Biju, Saw your call but was in a really long meeting. My plan is now hanging by a thread as I have clients visiting next week same time.

I could probably do a Sunday lunch and get back

^^^OK. No problem.

As of today I have got a credit of Rs.1730 into my account, which I believe is from drrajasaravanan + 1.

Since the deadline for booking ends today, it looks like most of the initially committed tbhp-ians cannot make it, for some reason or the other. And unless there are atleast 7-8 tbhp-ians, a meet is no fun. So, I am calling the meet off.

@drrajasaravanan, I am sorry this did not work out. Do PM me your bank a/c details and I will have the amount returned back to you.

P.S.: I will still be doing the Pondy visit because I had committed to my friends and because I anyway had made up my mind to visit Pondy and it has been a long time.

Sad to see this disappointing response. Where are the LOUD BHPians when you need them ? Vikram, Arka, Ranjit I was hoping to see you guys here. Try to make it.
