Thumbs up

The highlight of this meet was the great arrangements made by mjothi, akroy and Lukeskywalker.
No wait... The highlight of this meet was the great photo shoot of all the 26 cars.
No wait... The highlight of this meet was the great turnout by all the members along with their families.
No wait... The highlight of this meet was the great location and the offroading that took place.

I guess its difficult to pin point any one highlight for this meet. Also things that need to be mentioned in the highlights are:
- Tractor
- Great sandwiches. Thanks Lukeskywalker (May the force be with you)
- Great weather

Following are some of the pics:

OK back home guys. Was just browsing the other guys photos.

Was just thinking do we have to start a new thread for photos and after meet posts? Anyways, Mods has to take care of the same. This was a mod-less & distingished-less meet.

Thanks to the organizers Luke, Akroy, MJ. Everything went on smoothly. For this meet, all was decided within 1 week and the turnout was also nice. A total of 26 cars turned up wit 40 + people & kids. Arrangement was magnificient and special thanks to Luke's mom and Murthy for giving us a ride in his tractor. Enjoyed the ride. Driving a tractor was very difficult compared to driving of our modern cars....

I reached home at 6.45 pm. Went to Ghati Subramanya temple. It was nice visit. Thanks to Ravibhat for giving me ride and taking us to temple. Its a very old temple and has the long history. Thanks to patchyboy for getting the iced beer.

Have taken a few snaps on my mobile. Will post the same in next post.

@ Gowda79 I did not have my camera for most of the meet's duration, was busy with the tractor, but some of the people have taken very good snaps of the whole meet, I'm sure the labrador is in one of them.

But I captured him:

I knew it the moment I typed that I might be making a mistake.
I'm sorry, I stand corrected.

Default Reports & Pictures of the meet...

Guys, that was real fun.

Morning, 7:45am. We are ready and starting to the parking area. Load the car with Chips, Miranda and sother stuffs. I get a call from Jassi. "Hi, I will be near Big Bazaar in next 10 min." Good, I respond to him and start driving to OMR. I reached OMR @ 7:50, waiting for Jassi, Jedi & akroy.

8am, Jassi & PhrozenFire comes in their Santro. I try for Sammyboy, but phone is not picked. Then try for akroy and came to know that he is also waiting for basu in parking area. Then we decide to leave once jedi comes, and akroy informs us that he will make it through K.R.Puram. Well, the trip starts once jedi is there.

We had usual traffic in ORR, I had several SMS one behind other informing that guys will be in meeting point in few mins. Good news, so guys are really serious about the meet.

We manage the bangalore traffic and reach meeting point. I could see so many cars parked there. Make no guess, its Team-BHPians. But still I miss the service lane entry and go to the next signal and drive back.

Hari was distributing the name tags, akroy writing the handle and names on it. It was fun seeign akroy trying to get a "table" to write the tags. Each car he keeps the pad and start to write, keeps leaving the place. Finally its done. Then some members decided to have breakfast and so form a group and leave for breakfast.

We wait for others to turn up and when all done, head to the breakfast Hotel. Had some good breakfast, and then started to the Farm.

Guys getting back to their vehicle to head for the farm.

It was an awesome meet. One of the best I have seen in recent times.
Also the number of participation was significantly high and this made the meet more special. It actually can be termed as a Team-Bhp Bangalore Family Picnic.

Following members participated alongwith families (car):
1) Akroy - Alto
2) Amohit - Esteem
3) Anujmishra - M800
4) Bombatt - Sparky
5) Brraj - Peted Elantra
6) Dadu - Safari2.2
7) Jassi - Santro
8) Jedi.Knight - Corolla
9) Khan_sultan - Gypsy
10) Lukeskywalker - Optra
11) MJothi - Aveo
12) Patchyboy - Palio Stile
13) Pavan Kadam - VW Beetle 1960
14) PhrozenFire - RXZ
15) Prabhuav - Elantra
16) Ravibhat - Petrol Innova
17) Sajands - Verna
18) VJ_Mavrick - Alto
19) Viper_711 - Palio Stile
20) Chandan - Getz
21) ZoomingBhat - Accent
22) BTirthankar - hitched with Akroy (finally gave his Innova some rest as it is due for servicing @ Nandi Toyota tomorrow.)
23) McLaren1885 - Swift D
24) DKamath - Safari
25) WonderWhy aka Amar Singh - Pajero
26) Jaguar - Ikon
27) Sammyboy - ??

and finally the All members and their TRACTOR RIDE

I hope I have not missed out anyone.

Only drawback of this meet - No MOD or D-BHPian. This is a rare phenomenon in bangalore meets where no MODs or the distinguished ones.

Last but not the least, Many Many thanks to Hari and his family for providing the that nice area which turned out to be a beautiful outing for the members and families and not to forget the excellent egg sandwitches, boiled eggs, chips and the soft drinks. It was truely a memorable meet.

We also liked the ambience for lunch and everyone enjoyed it very much.

Thanks to mjothi for starting the initiative which reflected into suicha wonderful turnout in sucha short time.

Basu, Now it is over to you to post the photoblog of not only the meet but also our extended meet at the Ghati Subramanya temple another 20km from Dodaballapur and also that small offroading that Alto and Optra undertook to go to the forgotten dam.

Abhi
