Sounds good. See you in CBE at 10 am, guys - 11 am should be the deadline for arrival. Whoever arrives after 11 should find his own way to the Estate.

If you're late for a valid reason like a puncture/police/et al, please call Zak and inform him. Its not fair to make everyone else wait wondering where you are.

Zak - if YOU are late, call yourself and leave a voice message before trying to find the way to the Estate.

Please Note!

If You Happen To Be Late To Reach Coimbatore, Please Call Me Before 11am. After That, There Is A Rare Chance Of Getting Cellular Reception And I Don't Have A Satelite Thingy!

Brilliant point!!...and a potentially invaluable one at that..

ONLY BSNL has signals in the area. Its will be invaluable to have at least a COUPLE of BSNL phones with us & those numbers can be published amongst the participants... the ones coming in later are definitely going to need to be guided in!

So Please ... anyone who HAD/HAS or CAN LAY THEIR PAWS on a BSNL connection please let us know.

Quicksilver- any possibility of reactivating your defunct one??

Hmmm... Any idea if Reliance phones get reception there? Can a BSNL pre-paid connection be bought over-the-counter, or is there a whole lot of red-tape for that too? I've never had a BSNL connection so ???

And it would be nice if some directions/route could be posted here, if that is possible. I'm not going to be able to get to CBE before 5.30-6.00PM anyway and I'm (notoriously) bad with directions CBE folks who have been there before, could you help out here, please?

JK, planning to leave BLR early early saturday morning, so I reach CBE by the targetted 10 am. Planning to take the regular NH route while coming. Any thoughts on the route, let me know. Also, if you want a Salem pick-up, can do that too.

Condor my friend, this outing couldnt have happened to a better chap than yourself; but I'm finding that I'm getting mentally exhausted far too quickly for my liking these days, and I plan to sleep thru the weekend and try and make that go away.

Enjoy maadi - and I know that your Sumo is going to come into its own on such a trip.

zak, sriram we need to decide on the meeting place. a few places with ample parking and no police problems that I thought of

1. Race course CCD
2. Stadium - Pure & Naturals

Both places are pretty easy to find. lots of parking space and no hassles.
