Thumbs up Riders on the Storm - the NCR pre/Post Independence Day meet thread

As the title says "Let's plan" !!

July seems to be ending up, so it's out of question to have one in July anyway.

Two rather three important questions:

>When - When it needs to be done? What is the best suitable date for everyone to join the same?

>Where - Where it can be done? Since Polka is out-of-question, what other options for the venue do we have? Storm or Flames or Cafe Morrison ???
>Last but not the least, Theme - Pour-in you "fugly" suggestions for the theme

Let's start rolling the ball !! cheers:


Cheers

Ashish, thanks for the initiative.

I think we had zeroed in on 8th, 9th, 22nd & 23rd of August. So, to begin with, we need a poll; I will ask the Mods to put up one but the next time, do use the poll option when starting the thread. LOL. I'm also taking the liberty of editing the thread title to make it more "thematic" if that's OK with you?

As far as the venue is concerned, we had a ball at Storm so I would definitely prefer to have the next "meat" there. Morrison Cafe is OUT as that was a one-of kind of opportunity & I found the ambience of Storm way better than Flames.

Shashank will negotiate with Storm to see what best rates he can get - they had indicated an all-inclusive rate of 750 for 4 hours of drinking & the usual unlimited liquid nourishment, starters & main courses but hopefully we'll be able to beat them down.

So, guys, once the poll is up, lets have the fastest fingers first, huh!

I have up for any of the days, only 23rd Might be a problem.

And I guess lets not keep 22nd/23rd as an option, because they are 1 month away. Lets decide between 8th and 9th August only.

I would tend to agree with that - maybe you can start your groundwork at Storm.....

I hear there are pressing reasons why you're not coming back from the Phillipines Ranjit.......I would say you're "fortunate"

Lol.. Suman, you chucked the thread Nothing to bother about, actually it ain't something one should be bothered about.

For me 9th Aug-Saturday seems finest otherwise 8th Aug-Friday is also fine. Voted for 9th Aug anyways.

As shashank pointed 23/24 will be too late of the month.


Cheers

Why, what's wrong in deciding on the venue first? If we like a venue, we go with it - if its not available on the selected date, we look elsewhere........

750 is a little too steep. If something can be arranged for around 500odd, that would be nice.

My vote goes for 8th August as the date suits me completely.

Will not be in India after that and my departure date is not fixed so unsure of any of the other days!

Guys, we need a different venue than STORM, why repeat places? Atleast not in continuity I say.
