The polls are just getting too interesting now 1 Double Bedroom for me please if the dates are finalized for the last week of December 2016. I'll carry the extra bed for the Kiddo(s), so no worries on that.

Confirmed -

1. Uprasenjit + 1/ Double bed
Dear Uprasenjit,

Am an army officer posted in kolkata and an ardent bhpian since long. Would love to join in on the planned trip. Kindly confirm self+1 if accommodation still available. The period 23-31 Dec 2016 would be perfect for me. Am game for other dates as decided by consensus too. Have a suggestion that the cars starting from Kolkata might like to start as a group for more fun and interaction enroute.

Much Regards

Dear Uprasenjit,

Request if you could amend my requirement to a Quad Room. Would be great if you can include me in your group booking plans. Would remit the required amount on advice from you please.

Much Regards

Hello.

Congratulations, to the organizers. Feeling good, at the prospect of meeting all fellow brethren, in flesh! Please count me in, +1 (my wife). I am ok with both the dates, and any other dates too, in December. Organizers, please go ahead, and keep the dates as it is. I was just thinking aloud. Thanx in advance.
