Exclamation Jamshedpur Meet : 1st time ever.

I am thinking of a team-bhp meet sometime in July in Jamshedpur. Since this is going to be the first meet here, i suggest everybody(read JH/BR/OD/WB) to pitch-in with their suggestions for place/date and other details. 3 members are coming over to Jamshedpur in July for personal reasons : vCash, Vipin Kumar, entropy. Maybe we can meet up then with all others who can come from Kolkata, ranchi, etc. The fare from Ranchi-jamshedpur is Rs. 200 for Mercedes AC Bus. Quite affordable. Location should be Jamshedpur because its in a central position to the above mentioned states plus 4 members are primarily coming here. Comments/Criticisms/Suggestion/Advice awaited.

Do you expect the esteemed members of this forum to participate in any meet by alighting from AC buses, although that may be convenient?
Please excuse me for saying that every member wishes to bring his own car along, in every meet, however cheap and inexpensive may that be. For all of us our own car is both unique and priceless.
I have personally driven to Jamshedpur from Calcutta inumerable times at past, over last three decades, but given the present road condition in NH 6 and the Bahragora Jamshedpur highway (Guess that is NH 33), I seriously doubt whether it is a good option.
Please do enjoy the meet and share with us the happenings of the event and please upload many photos for us to enjoy. Eagerly awaiting for the success of the event.

I am in bokaro. I would love to chip in. What stops me is lack of a
1. Good road between bokaro & jamshedpur. The road From Chas ITI more to purulia (WB) is in excellent condition but afterwards, its better not to be discussed. Also its not safe to travel in this stretch after dawn. My family wont allow me to drive owing to such pathetic conditions.

2. Lack of trains and timings (purushottam & neelachal)

3. Lack of good bus services.

I seriously regret the conditions here, which prevents us for such meets.

I don't know much about JAMPOT, but Guys, decide the venue and time and i will seriously try to be there.

Slightly Off-Topic: Yes for Skoda's people used to drive down to Jamshedpur or Kolkata. But now Ranchi has Skoda, Renault, Audi, BMW, Hyosung showrooms and soon the city will have Mercedes Benz and Jaguar Land Rover as well so the drive to Jamshedpur won't be needed to get cars serviced.

As regards to the meet, I might come to Ranchi and Jamshedpur sometime later this year. But that is still a long way to go. I will keep myself updated through this thread if frequent meets are being planned henceforth so that I can plan my travel accordingly. Whenever I visit Ranchi, I meet fellow bhpians there so it would be great if we can plan a mega-meet comprising of bhpians from nearby places as well.

Guilty as charged, I was supposed to come to Jamshedpur to get the car serviced but there was a workshop by Skoda at Siliguri for a week, so got the car attended there. Car is no longer driven by me now.

If something is planned in between, I can try but for sure can't come to Ranchi/Jamshedpur and drive/ride back. If I am involved, would suggest to avoid the month/s of December/January because fog makes things uncertain.

Thanks
