Please try to convince your dad

@mitrajdeep, it was an impromptu decision on part of a few old timers to meet on Saturday morning, which later got converted to a full blown tbhp meet. Most of the people agreed to Saturday morning, hence the need for a poll to fix the date never came up. It is unfortunate that you will not be able to join this meet, but rest assured we will have many more meets in future if the participation is good.

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
You are most welcome Swagata, but I am not sure if you will get any pearl. Please let us know what gathering point you prefer, AJC Bose Road or Belgharia expressway.

Thanks a lot @BlackPearl for your reply. I'm sure that pearls are not a tradable commodity but a rare sighting for the discerned, nevertheless I did read the post by @Sam Kapasi and understand the advantages of having moderate expectations. I stay in Kankurgachhi and am at equal distance from both spots. For me the decider should be absolutely based on member participation and the excitement generated; I'm game to everything under the hood.

Since the folks meeting at Haldirams have a distance advantage, is there any plans for a late start or is it at 6?

@All, need suggestions. As sadnabrina has mentioned that the people meeting at Haldirams will have a distance advantage, do we all meet at Haldirams? I think it will create less confusion. I stay near Ruby Hospital, both the places are equally fine for me.

For AH on NH2, going through Belghoria Xpressway is definitely preferable. So for you Haldiram's is a better option - my opinion.

That sounds very interesting. To have a big group of cars owing allegiance to our wonderful forum travel in a straight line is a definite high. I second your proposal @BlackPearl. An activity of such proportions needs a single starting point. What say members?

Just wished to say that I shall be accompanied by a friend of mine. He is not a member of this forum, yet he is an extremely like minded person and has already travelled to places like Bombay, Delhi, Sikkim, Darjeeling, etc., with his ten months old Indigo Manza. As a auto enthusiast he is already aware of Team-BHP and said that he would be glad to come and meet us. And I am sure that all the esteemed members participating tomorrow will be glad to meet him at the event. Please excuse me for already taking the liberty to ask him to come and join us for the meet. But as he will be coming from Shyambazar side, may I as well as my friend wait for you at any of the two toll plazas on your way to NH2? I request you to kindly give us a wave of hand and we shall follow you.
Regards,
Rahul

Rahul Da, your friend is most welcome and I had already added his name along with you. Please try to meet near Haldirams if it is not a big problem for you and your friend. Otherwise we will be in touch over phone and you can join us at one of the toll plazas.
