I am 50% in... Have some work that day but trying hard to postpone / prepone...
I absolutely liked the midway idea and nothing like Yelagiri....I can meet the chennai brothers too....
I have the phone number of Yelagiri Hill Country Club Guy...If told earlier he can arrange lunch beforehand...

Rahul, if u want the contact let me know, I think u already have my cell number...

Got the PM, Should be ok with me. If I'm coming any place is ok with me.

For those who don't know the route to Yelagiri

From Bangalore

Bangalore Silkboard->Electronics City->Hosur(this is part of the GQ)->Krishnagiri Toll Gate/Krishnagiri Bypass->Take left towards Chennai at Krishnagiri Bypass->Natrampalli Bypass->Take a right there toward Jolarpettai. From there Elagiri Hills is close by.

Or you can take the road to Tirupattur and then go towards Jolarpettai and then Elagiri.

From Chennai. Its the GQ again

Chennai->Poonamallee Bypass->Ranipet Tollgate->Vellore Bypass->Ambur->Vaniyambadi->Jollarpettai/Tirupatur deviation and then Elagiri.

PS: Just sent out slightly over 700 PM's. Let's see how the turnout will be.
Got the PM, thanks. Count me in.

Being a new Team-BHP, I'm not quite sure what you people do. Drive like possessed car/bike freaks and come back the same day? We are not doing any 'tourist-y' stuff? How many people can I get?

Is it too late to put a new route on the table? Rajni fans might won't be able to join us though, that's the biggest negative.

Bangalore - Hassan - Chickmagalur - Mulayanagiri/Baba Budanagiri - Kemmanagundi - Tarikere - Kadur - Tumkur - Bangalore.

The total distance should be around 450 kms. The route will be good if it drizzles a bit. The roads will be narrow/ winding and the vistas will be incredible. A good opportunity for photographers to showcase their skills!

If you are not familiar with this place, I will post some photographs.

Nitrous thanks a ton for this wonderful idea. We sure will have a toast in your name this weekend.

Ok guys, dont throw bricks and bats on me for asking this...just wanted to ask if it can be postponed to next weekend (21st-22nd)? I would have loved to join such a meet, but have already booked tickets to native place.

If not, you guys enjoy and post the pics...I'll try to imagine how it was:(. Will surely make the next meet though:-).

Sunday looks good, as it would ensure a better turn out. However, any chances of having the meet on Saturday? Would give us time to get rid of the ahem.. jetlag?!
