Those who will come, will come. The rest will always find some excuse. If Khaadu can come from the hills, and Steer can come from Dubai, I think a few people can drive 1200 km.

Adi , a few of us are just back from bombay , totally exhausted both physically and financially too .. I guess it would take sometime before things are organized for a track day .. The minute we are done we shall put up the dates .. Lets not spoil the continuity of the thread talking about track day now , its time to decide the venue for a national meet ..

Something just makes me feel that it will be GOA this time around too .. It just fits the bill ..

BTW, since when have you started putting caps at the start of every sentence?

EDIT: We did 16.6 on the test run in BLR, remember?

Wake up and read my posts for a good part of last year Mr.Rattler .. Btw we never did a 16.6 at bangalore even during the practise sessions .. It never went below 16.9 .. This im doubly sure off as i had a close tab on the results soon after the stage II mods ..

Now lets get back to topic , and come up with a few names for the venue .. Goa , pondicherry head the list .. How about a forest reserve ?? We could unleash our wild animals in the wild too ..

Guys, lets keep the chat out of this and stick to the topic. It becomes hard for a person to sift through pages of chat posts in order to find the main points.

Or maybe call this the "build up to the National Meet II thread"!

Hey, I AGREE with u TOTALLY --- It is located perfectly for the Bombay and the Bangy guys -- right as centre point !! For us fropm up North its just about 5K return fare ( if we book early ) ...and for the Chennai gang -- maybe they can also just fly in .

As for activities .. Goa has the karting , pubs, babes, empty roads, non existent cops, relaxed atmosphere -- and if we lucky even the rain, coz thats about when the monsoons hit that part . Also at that time the deals we can get on accomo and stuff are also real good ...

Also personal cars are great ... but those are noticed or tested on teh first day itself .. after that the topic is not cars anyways ( coz that topic is for online discussion only ) , Right mclaren !!!

Somebody asked about weather conditions in Goa at that time ... it was HOT no doubt but then there was a pool to take care of that, followed by chilled KFs , and then the monsoons hit and we were still in the pool so Im sure the temps aint a problem at all . And dont ask too many questions about the last trip as a lot of us might not remember it too well -- BLAME IT ON MALLYA !!!!

Mclaren@ Lets wait till the weekend before we decide the destination , though you know where I wud luv to be .

Bombay@ lets get u Bombay guys active fast coz you rise late .... and when you do you suddenly outnumber all !!!

Delhi@ No one interested again or u guys thinking still ???

Chennai@ Nitrous, where u hiding .. or are you dreading the ride with stumpy in his Stage 3 modded Baleno ?? Wake up teh others and get a bigger gang from there -- the track specialists !!!

Rest of India@ Can we see the CONFIRMED hands getting raised ???

Cheers

Also request our senior members , moderators and dbhpians take extra effort to make it to the meet ..

Zak, As Samurai said .... it wasnt an all male meet !! And are u saying that you wudnt want to attend an all male meet , though with Goa as a venue --- the opposite sex is never missed .

V-16 @ If we do plan to postpone the dates then vll have to push it to Mid June or later as I will not be able to attend in the first 15 days of June .

So guys , is Goa being finalised as the venue or are we still unsure ???? Coz if its final then we can move onto the next stage of planning .....

Cheers

For want of any other option lets settle on Goa yet again.

Get those dates worked out - khaadu and V16 are both REQUIRED from what I hear...so why dont you two make a phone call and sort it out?
