So, bottle and anand are OK with being at Pondy around lunchtime. Me too have no problem. Let's wait for other Chennai guys to list their preference.
Biju ! Yea we guys plan to come on each one of our rides and car pooling nay! as the very essence of a drive and meet is defeated according to me.

Luke: Hope to see you there then and i think as shahnawaz pointed it out it would be in the morning itself we plan to drive as i too might have to put up late in the office on friday.

@amohit, I will add your friend also to the list. As and when some other members also join, we will group him either in the S.Deluxe room or Suite that we have.

PatchyBoy : 11.30 AM - Regroup at Tiruvannamalai - Tea Break
Rajan, good plan. Just that I was thinking of spending an hour at the Tiruvannamalai temple. Hence was thinking of leaving a little early & still reach Pondy for a late lunch.
Quote:
supremeBaleno : Bangy guys, given the driving time between Pondy-Bangy, what is the latest that you can leave from Pondy, yet reach home at a comfortable time ?
A 6 - 6.5 hour drive without pushing it. So we could safely start after lunch on sunday. This will also mean being comfortably close to the 24 hour check-out timings.

We can meet at Pondy for a late lunch. May be sync up when we Bangy guys are ready to leave Tiruvannamalai.

I would recommend you take the suite for the four of you. Unless you like to be private.

In that case, headers would also need lessons. Because he also was of the opinion that we should pool cars, instead of every guy driving down in their own car (1 person to a car), which is not an environmentally correct thing to do.

And you need to remember that in the case of Bangy guys, there are atleast 2 to a car, which is OK compared to all of us singles driving down individually. Anyway, this is just individual preference/choice.
If you are bringing the DICOR, I am riding shotgun with you.

I am open to both hitching a ride with someone (sharing fuel expenses) or have someone hitch a ride in my car. Ofcourse I would love to drive down, but if there is a way to get more bang out of 20litres of petrol, I would go for it.

He was running around to get the Gypsy ready for Sand-Wars 2008 aka Palar challenge, when I called him 2 days ago. Do PM him. I think he will come in that to Pondy.

Also, iceman91's Baleno is ready and he has indicated in another thread that he might come in that to Pondy. Would be good.

Room status is now as below :

1. supremeBaleno (Deluxe-1 : Rs.720)
2. ph03n!x (Deluxe-1 : Rs.720)
3. anandtheleo (Deluxe-1 : Rs.720)

4. Patchyboy + wife (Deluxe-2 : Rs.1800)

5. khan_sultan + wife (Deluxe-3 : Rs.1800)

6. VJ_MAVRICK + wife (Deluxe-4 : Rs.1800)

7. condor + 1 (Deluxe-5 : Rs.720 x 2)
8. headers (Deluxe-5 : Rs.720)

9. bottle (Deluxe-6 : Rs.720)
10. saiyan (Deluxe-6 : Rs.720)
11. vince (Deluxe-6 : Rs.720)

12. nitrous (Executive Suite-1 : Rs.950)
13. FieryEnzyme (Executive Suite-1 : Rs.950)
14. mail4ajo (Executive Suite-1 : Rs.950)
15. nickatnite (Executive Suite-1 : Rs.950)

So, of the total 10 rooms we have blocked, we have 1 suite (4 singles) & 2 SuperDeluxe (6 singles) rooms left. Waiting for more confirmations.

I agree, but I don't want to block it till it's confirmed that we are coming, nothing private about it.

Is it Rahul as in mclaren1885 ? And who all coming with him ?

Since there are quite some last minute entries expected, what I will do is, on 19th I will forward all the money I receive from the confirmed entries to the resort so that those rooms stay booked.

Then, I will request them to block few more rooms for us (depending on the interest I see on this thread) till say 1 week before the meet, which we will confirm with payment latest by 25th Aug. I think this should be enough time for last-minute joinees.
