Default Of Rain drenched roads, muddy cars & a bunch of car nuts - The Very Rare Kolkata Meet

I did mention that I hated the last meet in Kolkata - It was organized all right, but not how we used to have in the good old days.

We don't live in the past and we tend to forget the bad memories. While at work, I remembered, that while coming back from one of the meets, a certain Black Ikon over took me without even letting me downshift at 60 KPH and then a white i20 over took me and made me feel as if I was standing still. But that's another side of the story of "either you are good, or, your car is better"

We all love driving and meeting up with car nuts has a charm of its own.

Since couple of days, it has been cloudy, rainy after a sweaty summer. Proves that it is time for a meet, a rainy meet

To avoid traffic, we can simply do a breakfast meet like this one:

or this one

PS: Sorry no pictures of what we ate. If you are interested to know what we had, please check my FB wall / albums

So if you are game, start planning on the dates, venue, food menu

23rd June looks good!

I was planning for an In-City meet - Highway drives takes a lot of time, which we can other wise use for 'adda'. Also lets not force it on anyone!

We can meet up on the Rajarhat Express / Slow way, do a photoshoot, drive back to CC1 for breakfast, like the last time, or somewhere near Sector V.

Starting a customary head count!

Aah! 6 members! Nice

We will keep it simple - here goes:

Option 1:

Date: 23rd June 2013
Time: 7.00 AM
Meeting Point: After the first Flyover on Rajarhat Express Way / Near Ambuja Housing Complex (the multi colored ones)
POA 1: Drive to the inner lanes of Rajarhat / New Town & do a photoshoot
POA 2: Drive to CC1 / Sector V for breakfast
POA 3: Go home by 9:30 AM / go to work / sleep


Option 2:

Date: 23rd June 2013
Time: 7.00 AM
Meeting Point: Park Street / in front of Music World / Flurry's
POA 1: English Breakfast at Flurry's / Drive to Wise Owl / Mrs Magpie (Mrs Magpie & Wise Owl are located near Gariahat / Golpark)
POA 2: Drive to the open area opp Eden Gardens / Southern Avenue for a photoshoot
POA 3: Go home by 9:30 AM / go to work / sleep

There is time to decide on the Venue - but these two are just suggestions

You guys can suggest, if you have a better option.

Thanks for directing me to this link. And like this line about the meet "how we used to have in the good old days"

Should be there if nothing else comes up at last moment.

Rahul da, Anish, Sumitro?

My vote for Rajarhat because of the lovely weather but then we always do the Rajarhat stretch. Lets try out something new this time. Option 2 sounds good.
