Default Chennai ECR meet with guys from 'Motor Vigadan' auto mag

Got an SMS from nitrous on 24-Jan-07 informing that a major ECR meet is being planned on Sunday, the 4th of Feb, 2007. The highlight of the meet being the journalist(s) from the Tamil auto magazine "Motor Vigadan" doing a feature on the Chennai TBHP culture. Also mentioned was a photo session and a go-karting session at Mayajaal.

However, there was no further news on the meet. Also, was surprised to not find a thread on the same on TBHP. Bumped into nitrous at the FoodWorld last Tuesday. He mentioned that due to being busy, he could not post a thread on the same.

Hence this initiative from my part. Also, hopefully this would help keep all Chennai members updated about the latest dope on the meet.

14th Feb is a weekday & not such a great day for a ECR meet. For a good turn out, it has to be on the weekend.

Well, the idea of this thread is to gather some more info about the meet (apart from the limited info that I posted).

esteem_lover, n_aditya, slipstream et. al., you guys have any more info ?
Asking coz, if I am right you guys meet up with nitrous most weekends.

Ok just spoke to Nitrous. We are meeting in front of Barista at Besant Nagar beach at 2pm on Sunday Feb 4th.

If anyone does not know where Barista is, it is on the beach road (double road with a median).

Feel free to get your spouse/kids along, as the kids can have a blast with the karts in Mayajaal.

CU on sunday. The turn out is expected to be huge with lotsa members confirming so looks like this is my first time to a mega meet.

The Motor Vikatan guys are in touch with Nitrous on his mobile number. They would be there at a time and place decided by the group.

I would unfortunately not be able to make it for the meet as its my cousin's wedding this weekend and am loaded to the gills with work

Would be pleased to read about the meet in the March issue of M.V

Have a blast guys !!!

Cheers,

J

There are pictures of you floating around on a bed with a DBHPian, both of you heavily intoxicated. These were supposedly taken during a mega meet/party.

Arrow Good organizing, Nitrous

Sunday afternoons are a great time to meet and drive. Less traffic, plenty of daylight. I'd love to drive over even if no one else shows up.

Hey i meant first mega meet in Chennai

... and thanks to the guilty for the antics @ sam's party, I wont be drunk this time... and if i do get drunk ever again i'll ensure i wont be near a bed with someone on it... will also doubly ensure my shirt is tightly tucked in...

P.S. I did enjoy the party though, guess the excitement of meeting so many felow ppl smashed me outta my wits. From now i'll just get less drunk
