Default Drive to Pondicherry Meet EDIT: Now Mahabs Meet

Its been ages since we chennai team-bhpians went for a drive, the last i remember was the drive to mahabs, way back in Sept 2007 ?

Please build on this idea.
The tentative POA
1. Meet at ECR around 7.00-8.00 am.
2. Breakfast enroute
3. Reach Pondy by 12.00

Activities at Pondy
1. Sand offroading
2. Chilling off
please add more............

either stay the night & start early the next day or leave by 5.00 pm & reach home by 8.00 pm...

Tentatively the 15th/16th March weekend is proposed.

How does that sound ?

P.S. Bangy boys are also most welcome

A good idea, John. I am in for this. I guess Sunday (as opposed to Sat) would be the choice for most people.
Should we have a poll up here ? Options being :
1. 15th Sat - single day meet
2. 15th Sat - overnight at Pondy meet.
3. 16th Sun - single day meet
4. 16th Sun - overnight at Pondy meet - this option could be a problem with everyone having to get to work the next day.

And we need not have all the cars for the drive - could car pool.

Since 15-16 is more than 2 weeks away, should be enough time for people to plan their participation.

Nice idea. But doing both karting and drive to Pondy might be too much for a day. So, it could only be either of these. I am OK with both.

Also, need to check in advance whether the karting track is open that day - we went once only to find them closed.

Well.. make it Kart attack+Mahabs. Then it can be covered in 1 day. Let's have it saturday since there's F1 on sunday.
