A request - please do not organise and post future trips and meets only on your local WhatsApp groups. Post them here on the forum. The reason behind this - sometimes we Bangaloreans might be interested enough to join in on your drives too, and this forum is our common source to be informed.

I for one would've certainly joined in on the SHAR drive but for the fact that we had our own Ooty overnighter planned for that same weekend and I along with 20 other BHPians had already committed to that drive. And I know of at least two others who would've joined in.

Thanks and cheers

One more thing is - the chap who posted the photographs could have shown the rides along with their owners. I have attended some 3 or 4 meetings and everytime you get to meet someone new. This way it helps to put a name/handle for future reference.

Just a suggestion.

No such photographs were taken unfortunately - so this otherwise excellent suggestion just couldn't be implemented. Lets try it on for future such trips.

I too noticed that. All photos and no names. For those who were present at the meet, it would be easy to identify the people in the photographs (i hope so), but for the rest, who could not attend, below is the group with their Handles and their Rides for the day. (No real names for security reasons )

Of course. I have been following this thread since it was posted . The reason I said what I said is because of hamster's post (quoted below) wherein he mentions "so that I don't miss it next time". That one phrase gave me the impression that there is a possibility that future trips might be relegated to being planned on WhatsApp alone; hence my concern.

Edited to add: And it is good to see Gautam again. He was with us on one of our drives. He had guided us in fact to a suitable photoshoot location for that drive.

I guess the reason for the don't miss it next time is that there was a bit of chopping and changing of the agenda, meetup points etc and the actual messages got buried in all the tbhp traffic

It's a good suggestion. This was not organized in WhatsApp group. It started in this section. We can't have the kind of discussions on the forum because there are too many ifs & buts in the planning stage. While we all love to have members of other cities join us, am not too sure how many from other chapters look into a different city's meets.

But yeah, we can always have the start & final discussion (once everything decided) put on the forum - may be 2 days prior to the trip. But yes, unless we are very thorough with the organizing, the decision happens at the last moment. Not to take anything away from the guys who made it, but there will be some churn with a new group unless they do couple of meets. Am sure we'll see a lot more from the group.

Since you mentioned, may be we can look at something midway for both Bangy & Chennai next.

Midway = ambur / vaniyambadi.

I am sure a lot of bhpians from both cities relish Biryani.

It is on. Bangalore and Chennai bhpians : Please fill the doodle poll in the above master thread with the dates that you prefer for a trip to Ambur, and I will update that thread once we have a confirmed date set up.
