Default The MH Mega Meet - 1st December 2013

Now we have been planning for a Mega Meet for a long long time.
We've had our Zombie Drives and Mini Meets, and Every time we meet for our Friday Mini Meets we talk about the Mega Meet.

So here's me initiating a thread for the same so that we can finally have one.

The Actual plan was for a Mumbai-Pune Mega Meet. where we can meet in Lonavala/Amby Valley. and Most of us were game for it.

But last week I happen to be in Aurangabad and meet a lot of Fellow BHPians from MH20. They have their Mini Meets at a Private Property where they have built a sort of Track. and they have invited us all over a weekend.

The date is Finalized to the Sunday of 1st December 2013.

We just need to finalize whether we do:
- Mumbai only Mega Meet
- Mumbai-Pune Mega Meet
- Mumbai-Pune-Aurangabad Mega Meet

PS: Please check this link for whats in store for us at Aurangabad.

Good start Swap. Can we request mods to add a poll here and before that can Swap add more details regarding each option listed like whether it's a day meet or overnight meet, whether families are allowed to participate etc. This will allow people to take a more informed decision I feel.

Why don't we just stick with the tradition of having it at Lonavla? I don't think the same amount of people would drive down to Aurangabad. It doesn't have to be at Sunny's, but Lonavla will probably have the best turnout.

I think Pune is a nice midway point for the meet: Bombay and Aurangabad folks can drive here easily. Sunny da Dhaba on the old NH4 near Kamshet has been the traditional choice but open to other convenient options.

Lonavala will be a good option cause it would ensure people from all the places enjoy a nice drive. Afterall, Team-Bhpians Live to Drive

I don't know if I have the right to post here, being a newbie. I would say Pune/Lonavala would be a mid-point for all.

I feel Aurangabad will make many to opt out as its too far, will involve night drive, driving back to Mumbai again the next day will be tiring.

Pune or Lonavala will be the most desired meeting point that can be reached in a day and we can return back easily as well.

Hello,

Aurangabad Race track seems interesting.

But what will be the drive plan if we actually go to Aurangabad? I mean it will not be practically be possible for everyone from Mumbai to drive approx 700 kms to & from Aurangabad.

Frankly speaking Lonavala / Pune seems to be a good option for a mega meet.

Thanks,

Wow - Nice to know that there is interest developing for Aurangabad. Also, I never knew that there are Mini meets here - or am I info-challenged ! Regardless, good move and I am all eyes on this thread now. I am OK for a PNQ/Lonavala meet too.

I guess the poll is all wrong.
Mumbai only meet will not make Pune and Aurangabad people happy and Mumbai-Pune meet will keep Aurangabad People Happy.
We can have people from anywhere join in for this MEGA MEET.

So I request the Mods to update the Poll as follows:

Where should the Venue for the MH Mega Meet Be?
- Lonavala
- Aurangabad


For all those who wanted to know why Aurangabad? Well, the plan was to Start on Saturday Noon, and reach Aurangabad by evening. Food/Drinks along with BBQ and Camp Fire at this privately owned property with a Dirt Track.
Start early morning next day, enjoy the Dirt Track.
Reach home by Sunday Evening.

Aurangabad Members can help co-ordinating the Food and Stay.
And trust me, the Food there is AWESOME.

Now we are talking This is exactly what I had in mind when you first spoke about the Aurangabad meet and showed pics of the the dirt track. I would request all to have a look at those pics (link in Swapszone's first post).

The itinerary shared by Swapszone will make sure that we need not do the Mum - Argbd - Mum or PNQ - Argbd - PNQ on same day. Also, we can always do car pool with 2 - 3 people travelling together in one car (I don't mind someone joining me or I am open hitching with others). The obvious drawback of such a plan is fewer no. of people committing to such an elaborate plan, but then did we not say "Mega Meet"?? No offence to anyone but isn't Lonavla done to death already? This meet provides an opportunity to do something 'Hatke'

This now leaves us with the next big question, (considering that the 1st big question gets settled with the fresh poll suggested by Swapszone), whether this would be a with family or without family meet. This should ideally be left for the individual to decide and no hard and fast rule would apply.

Let us gather more opinions on this thread and see how it shapes up!

Mod Note: Poll reset as requested. Please register your vote again. Added a third free field option just in case there are other options that need to be discussed.

Oops---my bad. The following people have already voted for a Mum-Pune meet, so I have clubbed them under the heading "Pune" (which could also mean Lonavala/Kamshet/anywhere on NH4):

Please PM me if you are voting for any other location and I will update the numbers. Sorry about this!
