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.
Is this 'drawback' good or bad ... The MOD's/D-BHPian's were missed. Wonder what's their 'excuse' of not being there.

Nice pics guys and the best part being the total number of rides that turned up @ the meet. Though there were some last minute dropouts quite a decent numbered people chipped in.
binz was one of the guy who turned up during our assembling, but again had to leave much before we headed towards the farm. Keep the pics coming and i dont see Basu and Patchyboy yet with their set of pics.

This concludes the meeting pictures from me.

After the meet, we (snaronikar, ravibhat, myself, akroy, lukeskywalker and btirthankar) went for Ghati Subramanyam temple. We missed the direct road to the temple from Dodaballapur road. So, we took some Ghat section of like 4 kms to reach the temple. We were wondering how we missed the other road.

When we met akroy and team in the temple we heard that they took that route and its worst. So, everything is for good. Thanks.

Some pictures from the temple.

Yes guys, it was a great Picnic Meet.

My family including my car enjoyed each and every bit of the fun filled morning.

A special thanks and appreciation to Luke , Akroy and Mjothi, for the organised meet and the wonderful location.

Though i couldnt stay back till lunch, but shocking to see the 26 cars and 40+ T-Bhp'ians assembling and if i am not mistaken it was 95% attendance.

Though one thing i miss was that we all never actually had a one to one intro and could not discuss machines.

Yes meeting all the T-Bhpians was indeed great, but under the hood discussions is what's more interesting.

Will upload my set of pics by tomorrow.

Talking Excellent meet!!!!

First of all I would like to thank mjothi, lukeskywalker (and his family) and akroy for the arranging this awesome event. You guys did a great job
Now for my report

6am wake up to the alarm, drag myself out of bed (slept only 5hrs) and 10 mins later get my 2nd alarm (parents from pune, had told em to wake me up incase i act lazy ). Call up my friends (shiel and rashmi) and tell em to get ready as I will be there at OMR by 730 to pick them up.

Get ready and call phrozenfire at 7am as he had said if he has no ride he will need a lift. He says most of his friends are out cold after a night of fun and I tell him I will pick him up at sonyworld junction. Phrozenfire shows up at 720 with his friend shantanu and we head towards OMR. Pick up my friend on the way and reach big bazaar on OMR and meet mjothi.
Akroy says he will be there direct with btirthankar and so we head out after jedi.knight's corrola joins. Hit into some traffic and a brief stop for mjothi to get fuel and air. Lost both mjothi and jedi.knight on the way as the santro doesn't pull well with 5 people on board but make it to the meeting point finally to some excellent pointers like L&T.

Get the badge from akroy and then a lot of us head to the breakfast place. Somehow I end up leading everyone !! and with my excellent sense of direction, I was like good luck finding the breakfast place. But we finally found it after lots of slow moments. Have our wadas and idlis and dosas at chandra cafe. After a small hold up start for the farmhouse (hold up as i think some people wanted to visit a well maintained loo for the last time, infact shantanu almost passed out in the chandra cafe loo, so well kept it was )

Now we hit the village and start a nice traffic jam on the narrow roads and finally make it to a sight of greenery and lined up machinery

Cool

more pics of all the greenery and lined up machinery the photographers amongst up had a nice idea to align all the cars and basically wanted to ensure they can get the front wheel and bonnet of all cars in a single frame
