I think that is exactly what I have done here. Moreover, a couple of days ago I had already requested that my name be moved to the tentative list. But it is sad that the others who had confirmed to attend the meet did not turn up.

Oh btw, I am planning on getting a THAR, so I need some advice. SJCherian, can I pm you on this?

The food looks enticing.

Btw, has anyone tried 'Nair's Mess' on Bells Road. The food is great there too but parking sucks. The Fish-curry meals are simply too good.

I am dogging this thread, can't wait to have my first meet.
Sure - I will PM you my number, talking on the phone will be easier.

Guys, No offense, but thats the way the Tbhp meets have been - Be it track-day, travelling outside or a city meet, one hardly gets 10% of the numbers the thread confirms.

Its time to change the mindset. Just look at how Hyderabad and Bangalore Team Bhpians work out meets in huge numbers.

Thank you so much for your advice. Please continue to hold regular meets.

BTW, each city is unique in its character and its not fair to compare

Though I might be very young and new to the family, I appreciate everyone's effort who were able to make it up for the meet on Sunday. I would ensure that whatever be the priorities, I will surely turn up for the next Chennai meet which would be my first Team BHP meet. My humble request to seniors and friends would be to plan up a meet preferably on a Saturday. Having it on Sunday becomes a little difficult to handle the family. They dont obey and listen to me as my car does.

Hillram mentioned that next meet can be a dinner event. How about a Saturday night dinner? And this time, let us all take time, discuss at home and confirm.

Since we have just met, i suggest we give 3-4 weeks gap for the next meet, which will be a dinner meet.
Im proposing 20th or 27th April for Dinner meet. Since we have 2 dates , we can choose one date based on majority of confirmations for that particular date.

I am not sure, but isn't nitrous in the UK ? While I would love to join the meets, I am not in Chennai during the weekends, which is when the meets happen.

Why not 1st May which should be a holiday for most folks ? And since it falls mid-week, possibility of taking a long weekend is less and most people should be in town to make it to the meet.

Totally forgot. Even Sushil sir reminded me about this.

Absolutely, I will confirm once i see my work calendar.

@Arvind6488 : I was the youngest lad in the meet, unless Jayant, Sushil, Siddharth or Ram sir claim to be youths as well (I shalt not oppose their claims by any means )

Edit: Totally forgot about the snaps i took that day! Will upload them today! Apologies!

Friends,
Here is an interesting thread : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ex...ml#post3083138 (Off-Roading with a Hovercraft @ ECR)

This is owned by our Chennai T-Bhpian, Abidansari and Im sure he can give us a demo of the same and we could have a ECR Meet coupled with it.

Thanx for quoting my post here hillram. I would definitely welcome all to a demo of the hovercraft once I make some arrangements.
