Congratulations! Baby looking healthy and glad the meet didn't cause any inconvenience.Your wife is also very understanding!


What do you Bangaluru guys say about meeting us Chennaiites at Ambur and Yelagiri on 3rd of Nov (Saturday). This is already an Inter-City (We got people from Hyderabad coming for this meet) and Inter-forum(TBHP-GH) meet!.

Chennai plan:
Start 7am from Chennai -> Reach Ambur, have breakfast, take parcels for lunch -> Go to Yelagiri -> Chat, Scenery, Photos, Cars and lunch -> Drive down to Ambur, order parcels for dinner, and leave for Chennai.

Drive will be sedate, convoy mode.
Bikers welcome.
Pets welcome, as long as they don't take a leak on my ride's tires!
Pure veg people can source food from the CCD nearest to Ambur.

Below is the map:

People from Hyderabad ? Aren't they having a Bidar meet on Nov 4 ??

Do the B'lorians need to join up at Ambur or can the meet up happen at the turn off to Yelagiri Hills on the Tirupattur - Vaniyambadi road ?
Over to B'lore veterans ... your take on this ?

One Hyderabad person is reloacating to Chennai!
Yes, Bangalore guys can wait for us at turn to Yelagiri if you have already had breakfast. Few of us from Chennai will head into Ambur to procure the Biryanis, before joining rest on highway, have breakfast and then head to Yelagiri with lunch packed. Perhaps people from Blr can procure veg food from CCD for the Pure Veg people in the meet?

You will not be alone coming from Bangalore, that is for sure.

One person is coming with his family. He is not a member of TBHP, but is a member of Gearheads.

Apart from that Jasmine is as much family to me. Jasmine is my car.

The Chennai TBHP status as of now. Please mention what and how many biryanis you want + if need Chicken 65 + for breakfast - lunch - dinner?
eg: I need CB - CB - CB
Another person is CBB - MBB+65 - CB : Meaning he wants Chicken Biryani with extra Biryani rice for breakfast, Mutton B with extra B and Chicken 65 for lunch + Chicken Biryani for dinner. Pure veg people will be able to source food from the nearest CCD.

Damn! I was looking forward to the next meet and this one is just brilliant! I have a cramped schedule for the later part of the week.

Let me see what I can do to squeeze out some time. Going to put me in the tentative list for now.

SD: Some more clarity pl...

a. when is the Chennai convoy be expected to be at Yelagiri turn off, so that the B'lore convoy (ought to happen in due course) can plan their dep from Blr to arrive accordingly

b. @ Yelagiri, my guess is that it is a picnic format since pack lunch is being carried. Respective participants to bring their own disposable plates, tissues, water/soft drinks ? You might want to consider a tea break at some resort to avail restroom facilty.

c. dep time from Yelagiri

d. any other point I may have missed out on

I don't think I will be able to make it for the meet, but I am a bit surprised by the last part of the suggestion of carrying packed food.

Any specific reason why you are bothering to carry food from elsewhere to here? Yelagiri has some restaurants on the top so you should be able to get lunch arranged for all the members and families right on top . Why all this CCD for veggies, biryani for non-veggies confusion of carrying it, etc? Call Hotel Hills in Yelagiri and ask them to prepare whatever you want. That way, you guys can focus on the meet, and leave the food planning / packing / serving tension to the restaurant staff.

For Bangalore guys who cannot eat at Yelagiri, lunch options are abundant near Krishnagiri - Shoolagiri area on NH-7. Bang opposite CCD there is a restaurant called Dhaba express which serves pretty good north indian cuisine. You guys can stop here and have your lunch after the meet. Or else, the CCD chain near K'giri also has A2B, McDonald's and Sri Krishna hotel I think.

Karthik, Ambur is know for Biriyani and varieties of chicken dishes. I am yet to taste it but I think this is the reason for packed food.

Go to google and type Ambur, the first suggestion would be "ambur biryani"

Oops, in that case, excuse my faux pas , not heard of Ambur Biryani so far. I would still suggest the veggies to have fresh lunch at Yelagiri itself, rather than carrying crappy stale spinach sandwiches from CCD (CCD sells only those kind of things anyway). If you must pack food for veggies, McD might be a better option

P.S - arun, hearty congratulations on becoming a father, your son looks really cute! Glad to know that the meet didn't cause any delays. If I'm not mistaken, it was raining that night too.
