Wow.. a big meet plan is going on and i am sitting @ office almost the whole day for the past three months. I am not even spared on weekends. :-(

Today i went and told my manager that i am going to be sick this weekend and i will not be coming to office.:-) That means, I am coming for the meet to meet all our folks.

Just one question. Is boozing allowed? If yes then i need a ride with someone. :-)

Vikram, thats not an issue at all. But prob is that a friend is joining from TIDEL with his Alto and parking being an issue near TIDEL, it would have helped to get a lift till there instead of me bringing my car/bike.

Sure, I will take that up. Will call you on Sat & fix up the timing.

Well, AFAIK on long drives, booze is usually limited to a beer or two (max) - self-discipline and not enforced by anyone. A ride should not be a problem though.

Default Ride Safe

Saturday's and generally on week-ends the cops are out in full strength to catch wayward drivers in the ECR, so I am not sure how good boozing is going to be. (I DRINK, so please don't scorch me). They don't spare cars like the generally do in the city traffic, where only poor 2-wheeler riders are caught first for violations.

But if we have a drinkcheers: before the kart attack and the 4x4 outing, we should be sober enough to hit the ECR. Also I have seen the cops catching generally only after Sholinganallur.

Just my 2 cents. Thanks.

Looks like I will have quite a crowd with me - while 3 colleagues have confirmed participation, some more are thinking of joining.
