phoenix, intra-bank takes a little more time. But same-back transfers are fast. No issues - should be in my a/c anytime.

No issues about the money part. OK, I will pay for you two.

Oh, sorry about that. Now, that changes things a bit because he was supposed to be part of the group of 4 (with you, ajo and nick) that shared a suite. But since he won't be coming, I will bump you 3 to the S.Deluxe room.

I PM-ed them, but did not get a response. OK, anyway I plan to keep atleast 2 suites blocked for us for 1 more week, so that should take care of them if they join.

And YES, the Agenda needs to be discussed. Can we have a weekday meet this week (any day from today to Thursday is fine with me) to firm this up ? Since I am not in Chennai during 23-27 Aug, if this does not work with you/headers/nick/john etc, then maybe we need to do this the day before the meet.

I am sorry guys would not be able to make it, just now heard from the training team in office about a training happening on that weekend. Tried my level best to wiggle out of it. But could not, I am really sorry for not able to make it.

SB, I hope my absence does not create too much trouble in your planning for the rooms.

That's fine, Anand. Sometimes stuff happens that throws our plans out of gear.

Note : With anandthe leo dropping out and headers moving to the suite, we now have room for 2 people in 1 Deluxe room @720 per head. Anyone interested ? Plus there is one S.Deluxe room also available for 3 @ 970 per person.

John, you already made arrangements for your stay ?

@brraj, I guess this is apart from the suite and S.Deluxe that you booked for 7 people ? Sure. The remaining 2 slots in the Deluxe rooms are booked for you.

Sounds good fun. Shanavaz, are you getting your gypsy too?

If not, I'll hitch a ride with someone!

And there is nothing ashamed in hitching a ride with someone. With rising fuel prices today, some of us drive more than 100 kms daily to work and back. So maybe our tbhp meets would mean to hitch a ride!

Else, the gypsy, accent and the MM540 are waiting!

SB - Drag?

Vikram, 99.99%, I will be coming in my S10. The Gypsy does not have creature comforts and am coming with my wifey, so...

Hey, but you ought to bring your Gypsy there. I want to see your Gypsy there and also all other folks will get a chance to see both the man and the machine that RULED PALAR

That would be a last minute decision. Today, there is a massive diesel shortage in Chennai and my vehicles are all stuck!

If such a trend continues, we may have to cycle to pondy!!

Just talked to the resort manager and confirmed 6 Deluxe rooms + 1 SuperDeluxe + 2 Suites, for which I would be transferring the rental amount to the hotel a/c today.

Also, asked him if it was possible to block 2 more Suites for us till 25th August, for those that might join at last minute. Since he is at Chennai currently, he will need to get back to the resort before he can confirm this - will know by 7PM today.

The details of those confirmed are :

1) PatchyBoy+wife (Deluxe-1) - Paid
2) VJ_Mavrick+wife (Deluxe-2) - Paid
3) bottle+saiyan+vince (Deluxe-3) - Paid
4) khan_sultan+wife (Deluxe-4) - Paid
5) condor + 1 (Deluxe-5) - Paid
6) phoenix (Deluxe-5) - Paid.
7) brraj + 1 (Deluxe-6) - Paid by SB for now - brraj will transfer money (Rs.1150) today.
8) SB (Deluxe-6) - Paid

9) brraj + 2 (S.Deluxe-1) - Paid.

10) brraj + 3 (Suite-1) - Paid.
11) ajo (Suite-2) - Paid.
12) headers+nitrous+nickatnite (Suite-2) - Paid by SB for now.

@John, even though your name doesn't figure above, I have you in mind and there will be accomodation for you at St.James.

Hey headers, nothing secretive about it.

Just that he was initially planning to arrange some other accomodation and asked not to be included in the St.James list. I am sure some more guys will join (there are some more guys from Bangy that might join & possible that a mad mullah + some other mad mallus might join from Kerala) in which case, he can be clubbed with them.

And worst comes to worst, even if no one else joins, I still have a jugaad way for accomodating him (+2 more people) at St.James.

Hey neoranjit, so even if you decide to jump in last minute, be assured that you also can count on accomodation.

I thought we would get the luxury of being chaffeured in an Esteem post 3AM touching 100+ in second, with Nitrous sitting in the back!

Infact, am game even for that!
