I've attached most of the pics from Gachibowli ORR. If anyone wants hi-res pics, please PM me and I'd be more than happy to send you the full-sized pic.

I would like to add that it was nice to have met the group - everyone was friendly and I hope no one is missing from the next event.

That's a great turnout for the drive meet.

I did pass Gachibowli entrance of ORR around 8:45 in the opposite direction but didn't see anyone. May be missed by a few minutes.

May be next time!

Cheers

I was on the way, trying to catch up Hydeez at ORR, VJA strech, when I had a flat tyre. By the time I got it fixed, everyone left from there. I missed this EPIC Drive. BTW, where are the Food pics? Waiting for them.

Yesterday, It was indeed an epic sort of drive meet with respect to the number of cars that turned up for the meet. It was a great drive on the ORR even though we cut our drive short by about 60kms-80kms.

The lunch arrangements by NoRules was impeccable and the food was extremely delectable with special mention to the snacks ( loved the special chicken, fish and corn samosas)

A big kudos to all the folks who joined this meet and made it really successful and little disappointed with regular folks who dropped out at last minute.

Let's do a monsoon drive meet around 4th week of July (Tentatively on July 28)

P.S: Octane78, we are waiting for the whole set of pictures that you patiently clicked through the entire meet. A big thank you for that !!!

I am really unfortunate to have missed out on the last minute, was working my ***** out this sunday. Thought of atleast greeting you guys at the starting point(Gachibowli ORR junction), but again couldn't make it.

Will not confirm my presence until I am very sure, my boss goes mad if I sit idle on a weekend.

You need a new job... while on that thought, why don't you work for yourself? Lots of startups have been seeing success. And if you do start a store for automotive accessories and mods, you would be traveling the world collecting stuff for us to hound you for. That's an instant +5 Charisma, +1 Karma.

Were you on your way to Gachibowli or Shamshabad? As the one who almost made it, you could organize an event this weekend. After the fun last weekend, not having a meetup this weekend seems almost too cruel.

I do remember seeing off the convoy at about 8:45am so you might have passed by the group but didn't notice it. There was a bit of traffic too - I tried to get some snaps of the guys heading off, but other vehicles got in my line of sight.

Had great fun ripping the car with fellow rippers ahead and behind me. It's hard to drive slow on ORR.
Great to meet all you folks and as always I keep up my tradition of getting my directions wrong on the ORR, but this time I took few people down with me in the process. Never follow me guys, or thou shalt be lost

Special thanks to Ravi (NoRules) for arranging the farmhouse stuff and taking care of all the logistics in an impeccable manner, and also to bajaj sir for taking time off to come and meet all of us before the drive and also Nitin for doing the same. Kudos to all. Until we do it again, cheers.
