I'm missing out yet again and more importantly, looks like I might miss out on meeting an enthusiastic BHP-ian in you.

I'm traveling to Sabarimala and would not be able to make it up (again!) !

Thanks again for initiating/coordinating the meet! Cheers!

I would love to be there. Will be back on 22nd morning from Trichy and can make it for a Breakfast meet. Unfortunately tied up during the rest of the day.

Will wait for the location before confirming.

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'm in . Would prefer NW or HSB,OMR

I will be in Bangalore that weekend, hence will not be able to make it for the meet.

OT: Moving to Gurgaon by April means the Coorg trip dropped?

I will try to get to meet you guys that day, although mornings are bad for a night bird like me.

New Woodlands is a busy restaurant most of the day: I have doubts about their being happy with a large bunch of guys taking up space for relaxed chat. On the other hand, they have one mid-sized room, and it might be possible to arrange that room.

Sorry to hear phamilyman is leaving Chennai. That's another reason for me to make a special effort to make it to this meet.

My favoured locations: ECR, OMR, Adyar, but stretching that to Mylapore is no big deal. I have a house concert to attend at 4pm in Besant Nagar.

@phamilyman. Ah. Sad to see you move out of Madras. All the Best.

Sure I will come on 22nd. I will probably make it around 9.30. ( I have a mass to attend on a Sunday). Please firm up on the final venue. In case of any change keep me in the loop. My contact no: 9840143961

Don't mind, but not Mahabs. I can make Mahabs for afternoon or late lunch, but certainly not morning!

(Off topic: back then in working days, there were invitations to "breakfast meetings." I used to respond that it was bad enough having to be at work by 9am, so no thanks! )

All three are OK for me. But as @Thad says, 8.00 AM at Mahabs may be very early. We will have to leave home by 6.00 AM or so!

I might not be able to join for this meet. I'm glad I met you at the previous meet Hitanshu :-) All the best for all your future endeavors :-)

Count me in if it's any place within the city.

Also, like Sir Thad suggested, Woodlands might not be conducive to a large group lazing about on a Sunday morning. HSB OMR on the other hand tends to be free at any time other than afternoon. It also can accommodate about 12 cars easily.

Thanks for the knighthood Srinath! It will help to keep my ears warm in bed

For Indiamike meets (usually half a dozen people, but sometimes more) we have two regular city venues: Mylapore Vasantha Bhavan, and Mahamudra, Luz Church Road. The reason we use them is that, once the meal-time rush is over, they will be mostly empty and they have no objection to people sitting around. I don't know about breakfast times.

Vasantha Bhavan and the hotel above it have quite a large car park, but there is usually not that much space in it. Mahamudra has a small carpark, but there is plenty of side-street parking --- depending on which of those streets the EB has dug up this week.

Dear All,

Thanks for responding! We'll hold it at the New Woodlands Hotel only - let's have an in-city meet this time! We're hoping for a 10-15 member turnout (normal is 5-10) and Woodlands should be able to manage that well.

The timing would be 8am - so that those who have office can leave early, while the late risers can still drop in by 9ish. The typical meet lasts anywhere between 1-2 hours!

Please post your final confirmations.

I'll drive down there on Sat morning to be sure as well!

@gabriel - thanks for your kind words! We'll miss your presence!
