without further ado - here's what happened on that fateful day!

i reach sharp 11am at the rendezvous point and found KRRaj already waiting in his car. got out and introduced ourselves. just then two SX4's swoop in - vaseem and DigitalDragon!! again, introductions all around and we're trying to find a sticker to hide the long scratch on the hood of vaseem's SX4 when KRRaj spotted a Esteem slow down and park which had a got BHP? on the rear glass! out comes aa_asif!

after introducing ourselves, we decide to have a seat. we were just about warming our seats when ch.nathan shows up!

after introducing ourselves, we decide to order our beverages - as in tea and coffee; not the other kind! as the beverages arrive, so does qudra!

while enjoying our coffee/tea (beverages is misleading for some of you) we talked about stuff; from stuff on the forum to how console gaming is different from PC gaming! vaseem, who's been part of previous meets in Bangalore, shares with us how things were back then then. we talk about trips and outings; share information about places to travel, road conditions etc etc. - almost everything under the sun!

since this was a short meet (and we were running out of time) and we hadn't had any particular activities in mind (except have coffee, talk and take pictures), we decided to find a spot where we could park all the seven cars and take a picture. so, after paying the bill*, we headed out to look for a location!

after moving around a bit we finally stopped just off the Banaswadi main road (opposite Bawarchi). while we were waiting, we christened quadra's Spark with the red and black LCLC. using scientific equipment (human phalanges) we stuck the sticker dead center on the rear bumper. unfortunately, i forgot to take a picture! sorry mate!

vaseem and i head to the main road to see if there is space for seven cars to be parked. while we were discussing where to park the cars, a white Scorpio rolls to a stop near us! i take a look at the back (has become a habit now) and find there's a got BHP? on the rear glass!

i point it out to vaseem. he too can't believe it as it was totally out of the blue. vaseem quietly inquires with driver of the Scorpio if he was a BHPian and he said he was! that was amanmalhotra! then we dropped the bomb on him! we tell him about the meet and summon the others to join us!

after standing around and talking for a bit we decided to scout for another location (it was getting late for ch.nathan's NV lunch). with DigitalDragon leading from the front, we find a spot not far from where we had bumped into amanmalhotra. when everybody arrives at the spot and have a look the place they're pretty happy to have finally nailed it! while i'm preparing for the shot (or so they thought), they're happily chatting away!

after bit of scratching of heads, we decide to back up all the cars** against the space in front of a big house (was to-let). after taking picture of our rides from different angles (we should have had the bumpers lined up),

we decide it is time for the final shot - the rides with the their drivers!

presenting to you - the BHPians and their rides!!

L > R:
aa_asif[Esteem]; ch.nathan[Palio Stile]; quadra[Spark]; KRRaj[Getz Prime]; IronH4WK[Getz]; DigitalDragon[SX4]; amanmalhotra[Scorpio]; vaseem[SX4]

after the pictures, everybody writes down their call sign, name and ride on a piece of paper (just in case i get it wrong while posting) and then we say our buh-byes and disperse! not before promising to meet again. hopefully soon!

guys, it was an honour meeting you! folks from different walks of life and different parts of the country all united under one umbrella - Team-BHP. i just got one word for it - AWESOME!

* we all shared the bill - KRRaj didn't have to pay the bill all by himself!
** ironically - all of us had the stickers in the back side of the car, except ch.nathan who had the LCLC on the front bumper!

I wasted almost 15-20 minutes by going to the wrong place - CCD, Kammanahalli.

I still missed the election but managed to sneak in for the lunch.

Just thinking, we should have clicked a snap of all those people from the buildings around for their curious looks. Would have made a nice PIC.

Tell me about it! I should have been giving more attention to DigitalDragon's navigation on the phone!

It was indeed a fun filled meet and we should have it more often now.

yes, yes; what i meant was that all of us had stickers at the rear, but you had it in the front too (well, i've a W3.TEAM-BHP.COM on the hood, but you can't notice it in the picture; same goes for vaseem's ride).
