Next meet during the first week of June to coincide with the AutoMechanika expo.

We will have three "guests", who will in future be seen here more frequently:

1. Sideways
2. Speedzak
3. Joz

I think we should try and get Elfie in too - that should make quite a group. Guys put up your hands:

4. Wheeler
5. v1kram
6. Dhars
7. Catamaran
8. nitroxx (?)
9. CaliforniaKnight
10.TheElf (Banned)

Anyone else around? Where's the chap who loves Jeeps and hates Japs?

How about our friend from Pakistan, the SL600 owner?

Then there's this chap called dxb_roller (or is it rolla?(

Wheeler - please do the honours and start rounding up the small herd.

Don't forget some Fox in the desert who loves FJ Cruiser very much.

Next one could be a helluva meet.

All right folks, you heard the man!!! So put on your boots and get ready.

The Automechanika Expo will be held from June 1 - 3 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Center. After the expo we could head to BarZar @ The Madinat Jumeirah where we can get to know each other over a couple of drinks and some food (What's a meet without food and booze?)

I'm in. Not too sure about CK. Think he's flying out on the 31st. All the others who are game for this do add to the list.

1. Sideways
2. Speedzak
3. Joz
4. Steeroid
5. Wheeler

Steeroid, what exactly is your new avatar?

Sigh...I guess this is it then. It was hard enough to get hold of Zak as is when he was based in India & now that he's in the Middle East, I think we should give up any remaining hope too!

It was nice knowing you Zak! Have fun!

Well, I can't guarantee that it will be quiet in there. But it is defiintely not as loud as the Dhaba.

BarZar can be loud and quiet. Its pretty loud inside on the ground floor when the band is playing, but slightly quieter in the lounge upstairs. If we are brave enough we can also sit on the beanbags outside by the waterfront where they have an al fresco setup. Quite nice and rather quiet.

Much quieter than Trader Vic's at the Madinat, in any case.

Sounds exciting. Hope it might not be too hot.
Don't worry. We'll have enough dose of braverytonics to try the beanbag.
So when is the meet going to be?
