So, after my first mega-meet*, I also got to experience my first mini-meet. And like the last time, it was engrossing although due to some familiar faces, I interacted and blended in with much less efforts.

By the time I reached, most of the gang was already there; some had joined in and left too(engrohit, flyingspur) but I enjoyed every bit of conversation I had with each one of 'em. And as decided, dinner and the drive was impromptu but fabulous! Much thanks to amansanc for putting up with me till I joined the meet and an even bigger thanks and hi-five to SuperBee for staying back and accompanying me. It was an incredible drive, Raghav!

Ah yes, pics! I indeed shot a few and here they are:

The parking point for the mini-meet. That's SuperBee's Swift speeding away; someone probably TD'ing it. I'm skeptical if we'd be allowed to park there henceforth!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2688.jpg
A multitude of topics and lots of conversations. No one would feel left out.

Arunshek's well maintained Vista.

RajBajwa's Fiat Linea.

Jignesh was up on two instead of four that day. His P180 with swapszone's Avenger 220.

Another one of my favorites. SuperBee's Suzuki Swift.

The TBHP cars.

Dinner @ Mini-Punjab, Powai. Clockwise from l-r: RajBajwa (Raj), amansanc (Aman), vvb8530 (Varun), swapszone (Swapnil), minimalist (Akshay), SuperBee (Raghav).

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2697.jpg
The guys chilling out. I seriously don't know what Akshay was up to!

Varun.

Candid shot! Akshay and Raghav.

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2706.jpg
TBHP advocates safety and hygiene. Always belt-up and sanitize your hands!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2700.jpg
Swapnil's attention to detail.

....And a low-light example of the same!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2720.jpg
The guys prodding away on their phones on the WhatsApp group. Probably taking Aman's case!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2713.jpg
In the midst of all the joshing, we heard some tires screeching and......this!!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2719.jpg
He/She spun out of control and crash-landed on the sidewalk. Thankfully, there were no pedestrians at the time.


(Cont'd)...

Dinner was quite nice with unlimited appetizers. Most of us were full by the time we moved on to the main course; well, most of us! Our table/charpoy was bustling with indiscreet conversations and unrestrained laughter, all the while having impromptu competitions with the other customers. Credit goes to Aman for his lack of understanding of the Marathi language and no less to Raghav with his laughing antics! Nilesh (aka sawnilrules) joined us briefly and left due to other commitments. After dinner, we couldn't resist the urge to go over and analyze the mishap that'd just taken place.

Moar pics:


Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2724.jpg
The team of crash experts, insurance inspectors and investigators all geared up to evaluate the situation!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2725.jpg
"Dolphin head! Then, it was destined to happen", Swapnil exclaimed.

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2726.jpg
More inspection....

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2727.jpg
The tires managed to hold their own. Not in terms of grip sadly!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2728.jpg
The entire dashboard was displaced due to the impact, jutting out from the other side, breaking the quarter glass.

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2729.jpg
Everyone hinted at possible chassis damage.

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2731.jpg
Busted tie rod/steering arm!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2732.jpg
Everyone was having ideas about salvaging the car for alloys, head unit, etc.!!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2733.jpg
This shot reminds me of the zombies from I Am Legend!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2738.jpg
The team discussing the route for the drive......

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2741a.jpg
......when suddenly he materialized out of thin air!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2744.jpg
After much persuasion and begging, he finally allowed us for a photo-op!

Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians-dscn2742.jpg
Some say he has alliances with BMW. And that he is fluent in Marathi too. All we know is that he's the Mumbai cousin of THE STIG!

Cross-posting the link here in case anyone missed it. The 2014 Car Rally for the Blind is now open for registrations. Let's have a great turnout from the Mumbai BHP'ians!

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...-february.html (Enjoyable Drive: The 2014 Blind Man Car Rally, Mumbai. Sunday, 2nd February)

In case you are wondering what this is / want to get a feel of the event from previous years, GTO's post in the thread lists the event reports I've penned.

Turbo_Torq,

I would be there this time around. Let's meet up.

In hindsight, we should have mentioned on this thread that some of us are headed to Naneghat on 21st Dec. :(

Looking forward to the next Zombie meet. Can't make it for mini meets due to work constraint.
