Text me your cell no.

Default Next one @ 22 March?

Gents,

Apologies for the mass-quote but now that I have your attention, please let me know if you'd be interested in meeting up on 22 March Sunday for a morning meet (say anytime between 8am - 11am). Venue options:
a. The A2B or whatever it is below the Adyar Signal. Sunday morning, there's 20+ parking spots
b. The hotel location suggested near Saravana Bhavan, RK Salai. SB doesnt have enough parking and I remember Gansan sir talking about it.
c. Mahabs (anywhere).
d. Hotel Saravana Bhavan, OMR

I will be with my 3.5 year old son - more kids the merrier

Regardless of the total turnout, I would like to definitely go ahead with this meet. I'm going to shift back to Gurgaon mid April, so this is potentially my last chance to catch up with all the kind BHPians I've had the pleasure and good fortune of meeting in the last year and a half.

Another option could be the New Woodlands next to Savera. It would have sufficient parking lot . I don't think 22nd is wedding day and parking lot in the morning should be relatively free...

For sure, I'd like to catch up; however, we have something being planned to ride for a noble cause to Jolarpettai/Yelagiri that has just cropped, but I'm not sure how much of it can be materialized as most of the meet happens through whatsapp & then dies.

If that noble ride doesn't materializes, then, yes, I'm in this for sure, but on my CPR.

If Mahabs, then A2B or Hotel Mamalla will be good.

HSB @ OMR is also good.

Finalize the venue, I think I will be mostly able to make it with Junior. But since his exams are under way, we can't take too long a time off, his mom will bite my head off!

Folks,

Many thanks for your quick responses - I'm glad to read them! Can we have a quick vote on New Woodlands Hotel vs HSB OMR vs Mahabs?

I am game with trying out NW since we've never done an in-city meet earlier, always near OMR or out of the city only. I'm not sure how many folks would be able to make it for a Mahabs meet?

Interesting. Keep me posted please! How can you ride a defibrillator (CPR machine) btw? Just kidding!
