Oh, oh. I guess you guys would need to recce the Palar challenge route one week before the actual offorading. Hmm, did not think of that.

How does the weekend of 30-31 August look like for Chennai bhp-ians ?
Or the weekend of 6-7 September ?

I think it would be useful to have a poll for the dates so that we know which date is best for most people.

EDIT : Would it be better to have a new thread for this meet with a poll added for the dates and move the related posts from this one to that thread ?

Better than a rally championship nitrous. We need to prepare our vehicles etc etc. We dont have sponsers to do the same and for us to arrive in style in an AC wagon. We need to know the basic of DIYs.

Vikram, Is this pertaining to the sms you sent, if so I replied. Sorry I haven't been checking this thread as much as I should have.

Having said that, I regret missing that, hope to make it next time. I still have something to prove, right ?

This is something you and I would do. Not the alcohol consuming crowd.

guys/gals who want to leave the same day are most welcome to do so. Folks who want to spend the night wining & dining will stay back

Sounds reasonable to me - just leave it to the individuals as to whether they wanna return back same day or stay overnight.

Guys,
I created a new thread just for the Pondy meet.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...ime-break.html (The "Rendez-vouz at Pondichery" meet. Giving time a break.)

Let's continue the discussion there, leaving this thread for our normal mini meets and stuff. And please do take the poll so we can get an idea of possible date for this drive.
