Our D2 Man Mr. Biju has suggested June 12 for Pondy - A repeat of St. James Court - Any takers?

Was a great meet after a long time. The new faces were Inder and Ajay. The rest of the gang were:

1. Biju - Distinguished - Supreme Baleno
2. Madan - Normal - Madan80..oops 79.999
3. Ranjit - Neoranjit
4. Arun - Anachronix - the first to arrive
5. Jaikanth - Slipstream
6. Jayant - Phoenix - Organriser for the meet
7. Senthil - Blue_thunder
8. Vikram - Headers

We had a brief chat at the marina - the second longest beach in the world followed by some yummy breakfast at New Woodlands Hotel.

This was a meet that happened after almost 2 years, I guess

The meet did happen. And by usual Chennai-meet standards, 10 tbhp-ians is a crowd.

I believe I was the first to reach, at around 6:45AM. Parked on the beach road opposite Queen Mary's college - I guess for any future Marina meets, we can have this as the meeting location, because while finding Gandhi statue is easy, people end up parking (and awaiting others) at various sides of the statue. Since I am early, try to pack in some exercise and do some walking. SMS Phoenix! at 7AM that I am there - he replies that he is on his way.

The landmark for the meeting-point :

Cops from the mounted division of CCTP, keeping vehicles at bay from the morning walkers.

As I walk back, I see a black Fiesta 1.6S with neat alloys - this has to be a tbhp-ian and I correctly guess it to be anachronix. Meanwhile Blue Thunder (BT) in his Gypsy has parked near my Baleno and now the 1.6S is also parked alongside. Catch up with BT and anachronix and while we talk, Jayanth, Ajay & neoranjith come over. Headers and madan98.3 join in as well. A few minutes later slipstream drives over in his Swift_D. The last member to join is inder_s1 (with wife and daughter).

Some snaps from the meet - not very clear because our folks were standing with their back to the sun.

From L-R : anachronix, ajay, phoenix, neoranjith (shy), inder_s1 & part of slipstream

Apart from the folks named earlier, you can see Blue Thunder in this snap - extreme left.

Other snaps from the Marina, which was a beehive of activity at 7AM. The beach gets active with walkers as early as 5. You have groups of people practising everything from karate to skating.

Walkers around the Gandhi statue platform.

A couple of young boys walking on the boulders - the plastic bags on their shoulders had empty bottles picked up from the beach.

The skating rink, with some kids practising their moves.

Apart from the usual ribbing, one of the things discussed was to have the next drive, soon for which a separate thread to be created.
Where : Pondichery
When : Weekend of 11-12 June 2011

Wow! What a surprise!
Great to see all the usual suspects and everyone's smiling or laughing in almost every picture.

Great of Ajay2233 and Inder_s1 to join. Wish there were more new bhpians getting acquainted with the older members.

^^ What a surprise. Finally we hear from Superman himself May be you should take a break, visit us for a weekend and go back. When you have control of so many planes, a weekend trip is for sure not a big deal.
