It better go up tomorrow and the count increase meet by meet.

It would be better if we can explore new places every meet rather than going to a location that we have visited. That said not many good locations are there for a run about in a day and that too in summer.

Let the suggestions pour guys.

I'm in game for the Suryapet idea.

Guys, nobody seems to take the lead in providing a clear-cut option for this drive meet.

Let me propose something which involves not too much of driving and then chill out for lunch in a decent place


Option 1

Drive on ORR for some distance then branch off towards Gandipet and halt there for pictures and then again take the ORR back to city and stop at Club 8, Kondapur for lunch. I can hope to see many other bhp'ians who cannot drive joining for lunch atleast.


Option 2

Drive on ORR for some distance then branch off towards Vikarabad road and drive till 60 odd kms and then head to Jollywood or Button Ice for lunch as that place is nice with lots of shade and good food.

Either ways, the meeting point will remain same.

What : Drive Meet
When : April 22, 2012
Where : ORR+Gandipet+Vikarabad Highway
Location to Meet : Below Flyover at begining of ORR at Gachibowli/Kondapur Junction
Time to Meet : 10:00AM

Confirmed Names
1. Mobike008
2. Ravveendra
3. Octane78
4. Sparsh
5. Diesel9999
6. Raju Datla
7. Vidhya Charan
8. Norules
9. Milecruncher
10. Sabby-069
11. Neel
12. a4anurag.

Iam slightly keen towards Option 1.

Let the reconfirmations and choice of option flow in !!

I might join in for lunch in the later stage of Option-1. Prawns and Pepper Chicken are my all time favorites at Club-8

Update of confirmed folks below as rest of the folks dropped out in last minute :-

Confirmed Names
1. Mobike008
2. Ravveendra
3. Octane78
4. Diesel9999
5. a4anurag

IMPORTANT NOTE :

Since its only 5 people who are confirmed. It doesnt make sense to move forward for drive meet. Therefore, the drive portion of this meet is cancelled. But, lunch meet is ON at Club 8 from 12pm onwards

It's been 3 days since the event, yet there are no pictures or updates. Did you folks go on a drive meet without the rest of us and decide not to post pictures so we wouldn't be envious? :-P

BTW, did anyone here watch American Loggers? It features some heavy duty trucks that develop mechanical problems from pulling heavy loads along mud roads, from broken leaf springs to transmissions that get busted. You get to see how the drivers in the US are a lot like the ones in India - mechanically savvy enough to open up the whole of the car when something goes wrong before giving up and handing it over to a workshop.

See Mobike008's post (quoted above).
The drive meet was cancelled.
Club8 has pretty dark interiors to keep the air-conditioning effective, so I guess, no photography would have taken place.

The lunch did take place.
Why did you not come? I was also expecting Jay to turn up.
The attendees were much more / many more than the anticipated 5 who had confirmed.
Prawns were eaten and so was curd rice among many more dishes.
However, the prawns dishes were a big let down, surprisingly.

Now for a small secret, I also missed the meet.

I read the earlier post about the cancellation of the drive meet, but since there were no pictures of the lunch meet, I was wondering what went on out there.

I'm a veggie and there aren't too many restaurants in this part of the world that are popular for their vegetarian preparations.
