Default Bangalore Meet - - Farm, Family, offRoad, Temple and loads of fun. Report & Pics

I hope some guys who took pictures will start a new thread, but the brief :

- Excellent Meet, turnout was crossing 40 (adults), IIRC

- Very good location and farm, the gods also sprinkled a little but weather was perfect.

- A very good shootout (photo)

- Shahnawaz, (Khan_sultan) put up a wonderful 4x4 act climbing a hillock(if I may) with the Pajero trying to.

- Not to forget the kids, they spent a wonderful, enjoying day on khan's open gypsy ride.

- Psst...the women also tried their hands on the 4x4.

Thanks to Mjothi, Luke & Akroy for the management.

Hi All,

I am the first to report on the meet and upload pics on the very well organised meet Thanks to Mjothi, Luke & Akroy for the management and a positive turn up of well, everyone.

Well, Here's the detailed report,

It's 6.15AM, I get up and check the forum and find people are already on the way towards the meet point.

6:30AM, I called Dadu on what time he would be leaving his place so that I can catch up with hm from JC road. Later, left home around 7.10AM and head towards JC road where dadu is waiting in his tank[Safari]

On the way, we spot a esteem rally car racing towards the K-1000 rally. He had a tough time trying to overtake dadu's tank.

8.45AM we reach the first meetup point to find team-bhpian's car's lined up in the service lane. Nearby people are confused as the car's kept comming in.

Abhi hands out the name tags and we proceed towards breakfast and then hit the final destination.
While going towards the farm, we had to pass through a small village and boy we sounded our arrival in style. 24 cars including the star of the day or should i say car of the day, the yellow bug[bettle] and the suv of the day was the gypsy which won all the kids hearts.

Everyone including the women also tried their hands on the 4x4 Pajero and the gypsy on the open field. I guess Team-bhp can teach car manufactures how to test a suv's off-roading capabilites.

The Photo shoot was the best part with all the cars lined up including the suv's and the sole innova [muv]. It was like a second hand car mela.

Once again thanks to Mjothi, Luke & Akroy and a special thanks to Dadu for waiting for me and pavan for his star car of the day the yellow bug that stole all our hearts.

I guess this is enough of writting and i'll let the pics do the talking.

Looking out for the next meet.

Regards,
Sajan

Guys,

Just reached home and must say that I enjoyed the day a lot.

Thanks to all those who participated and special mention to mjothi, Luke and akroy for the coordination and arrangements (even though these folks came last in the morning ;-)).

Also special thanks to Luke's mother for being with all of us for the day and enthusiastically showing us the places. We can all take a lesson or two from her on energy and enthu :-)

I did not click any pics as I had no camera, so whoever took pics, please start posting them.

It was great meeting all t-bhpians -- some old and some new. I am sure everyone who came had a wonderful time. It must be one of the best meets -- even weather wise.

Look forward to the next meet.

Guys it was an excellent meet with so many rides turning up and to be precise 26 of them. Luke has been a gracious host and thanks to the organizers in particular(mjothi,akroy and Lukeskywalker).
Thanks for the pics Sajan and i think many more will follow. Met new bhpians and definitely one of the best meet to my knowledge. We were lucky too with the weather not playing a spoil sport.
Guys with cameras @ the venue please post pics.
I also take this opportunity to thank all of the 26 folks who attended with their families and guests in making this meet a remarkable and wonderful one.

Thumbs up

Guys, Just reached home after having a small visit to Ghati Subramanyam temple.

Special thanks for ALL the members (+ families, + kids) who made this a real enjoyable meet filled with fun.

And ofcourse, I should mention the tractor sessions. Well, picture speaks more, so will have it soon.

I cannot resist myself from sitting in laptop straight from my car. Today was the first day, my wife did not scold me for login straight to Teambhp.com

She knows for sure, there would be pictures posted for sure. And sajands, you did not disappoint us, thanks for those shots.

I will post mine shortly.

Khan, what you did man? My son is so sad. You know what? He says he misses GYPSY... Come on, get ready, when are you going for the next off-roading?

Thanks again to all t-bhpians

Hey mjothi,

Anytime. I had a good time, wonder when's the next meet going to be. Your car looks really good wish you had abs and airbags in the limited edition.

I told you to swap your car with khan's gypsy .

Regards,
Sajan.

The meet today was like a family picnic.. The arrangement ,location and weather were fantastic. It was a lot of fun meeting everyone. The three vehicles (Pagero, Gypsy and the tractor) used for off roading were awesome.

I told him initially itself when his kid was longing for a drive, "Mjothi, you need to buy him a Gypsy"
