By all means, I will participate in the talks, if not in the eats.

I'm still tentative and hence not put my name in the list (I don't believe in a 'tentative' list). But if I do come, I'll also just participate in the meet and not the eats at Kamath Upachar and in that case I'll come to IPC with you afterwards

Guys, this is turning out to be an awesome MEGHA MEET

Going by SUDARSANAN sir's standards, this is a short drive and probably shouldn't last beyond 10am.

All the "Tentatives", "Probables", "May Be's", "Could Be's"...

PLEASE MAKE IT!!

No. of cars may as well be 25. Are we looking at a different meet point, somewhere further. I don't know much landmarks on this road.

Suggestions?

I am just wondering why no one is coming in their bike? Is it because "Winter has come" [pun intended ] ?

Depends on where in JP Nagar you are. Is Kanakapura road closer or Bannerghatta road? Either way, going through the city will be fastest at that time.
If Kanakapura road is more accessible to you, then we can meet at Sarakki signal.
If Bannerghatta road is closer, then cut in through Jayanagar to get onto JC road.
At 5:30am, all routes no traffic.

The only other place I can think of is just before the toll on Airport Road, after the McD signal. Its quiet wide there and should be able to accommodate

+1 vin_b.

I do have couple of concerns though on this meeting point:

- I have noticed quite a few city/airport cabs parked there and it really is a mess.

- The toll booth itself is quite far from the current meet point (Esteem Mall). We all may have to reschedule the time if we decide on this point.

Since it is a Saturday and quite early, I am assuming that the general crowd must be less and we might only have the bike riders to jostle for parking space.
I have also noticed that the service road near the 'Government Veterinary Hospital' is wide enough and big enough to park quite a few cars.
If some folks are coming form the Ring road, they can wait at the Esteem mall and we all can join them (without actually stopping at Esteem Mall service road) and continue.

Suggestions/Views/Alternatives appreciated

Isn't airport toll too far to meet. I don't know the hoapital, whatever you guys decide I am fine with that.

The first meeting point could be at 6 am opposite Esteem Mall and the second one at 7 am immediately after the pass-through at the Devanahalli airport toll plaza on the LHS service road, just before the up ramp towards the airport, where the NH is wide and could accommodate many cars. Usually, people wait here in vehicles to pick up the arriving passengers to avoid parking at the airport. I too did so once.

+1. I feel this is a much better meeting point than Columbia Asia/Esteem Mall and it is only 20 mins further. Cars can be parked in 2 rows and shouldn't bother the oncoming traffic. 6:45 - 7:00am sounds perfect.
