@sadnabrina, my answers below -

Near the IOC petrol pump (near AJC Bose Rd Flyover / Park Circus 7 point inter-section / Arsalan)

2) What time do you plan to be back in Kolkata? Are we doing lunch at AH Uluberia? In that case can we make it a family event?

Should be back by 10 or 11ish. People who want to stay longer can have lunch. All team bhp meets are family events as mentioned by Shuvc.

3) 6 AM would be too early for "weekend late risers" like me. Can we do it like 8 AM?

The reasons for 6 a.m. meets are -

1> To be back by 10 a.m so that people can do their Saturday chores
2> Less heat
3> Less traffic
4> To filter the enthusiasts.. ok, that was a joke

Guys, would request you to go through the link provided in the opening post on how to have a successful meet. It will help both the oldies and the newbies. Thanks to Sam Kapasi for the wonderful thread.

In case you are joining the meet on Saturday, please give me a call. We may travel using the Belgharia Expressway, like what we did during the last meet in Uluberia.

By the way, @sadnabrina I missed your point about the destination. It's Azad Hind on NH-2 ... not the one on NH-6/Uluberia.

Am a bit confused now. When I spoke to Sumitro (tbhp handle BlackPearl), I had an idea that it was AH on NH6 Uluberia. Please confirm the destination - AH on NH2 (after Dhanekhali exit) OR AH on NH6 (Uluberia).

Meeting Points:
AJC Bose
1. BlackPearl
2. altocumulus
3. Sabya
4. Premjit
5. Planet
6. Samarjit
7. Razor
8. Shamik
9. Deval?

Belgharia Expressway
Meeting Location:- VIP Haldiram's after the Rajarhat flyover meets the VIP Road on way to airport

1. Shuvc
2. debarshim - Confirmed
3. Sadnabrina
4. Rahul
5. Hero

Will be a good idea to have this confirmed and out of the way coz initially it started with the Uluberia one (never been to that one) and now it sounds like its NH2.

Additionally can one person be designated the lead for each point and have their phone nos. listed for assembling the group together at the respective points? Given that Sumitro and Shuvojoy seem to be the first names on the lists so would both of you volunteer for the same?

Last but not the least if it is the NH2 AH, then the folks at the Haldiram flyover seem to have quite a lead, while all Shuvojoy needs to do is get out of bed and step into his car

I'd love to come with my father, but he has been having a tough couple of months lately. Late nights at the office coupled with the fact that he didn't get any rest last week due to annapurna pujo at a close relative's place and I doubt he'll be willing to go. I shall confirm after I ask him.

I am also little confused. What shall be our destination? But in my personal opinion driving to the AH Dhaba at NH2 will be more enjoyable than going to the one at Uluberia. However, I welcome any difference of opinion.

@All, sorry for the confusion. The final destination is
Azad Hind Dhaba on NH2.

Have requested the moderator to update the thread title with the venue to avoid further confusion.

Please count me in. I may be a newbie but am no less an enthusiast about this forum or any sort of automobile activity. Just returned from a trip to Mandarmani with fellow Tbhpian Dheeraj23, and a couple of other friends. Can't wait to participate in the meet and be rewarded with priceless pearls of wisdom and exchange invaluable notes from the experts. In short looking forward to getting introduced to everyone in our Kolkata chapter
