Who is participating, and in which sectors?

Where are we having the meets?

Baroda?

Who will volunteer to organise the meet in each of these venues?
We need suggestions for hotel stays en route.
Is there going to be some meet at Baroda ? When and Where, any details ?

Suggestions welcome for Baroda meet - who are the other members in Baroda?

We could have a early evening meet en route Ahmedabad. Or it can be combined with a meet at Ahmedabad. Ideally, venue for meet should be in city outskirts, not too much of a detour from the NH8.

Please take the lead in roping in other Baroda members and deciding a venue for a 1-hour meet.

Any Baroda members joining the drive?

IIRC, there are three members from Baroda that are seen in posts.
1) aaggoswami i.e. me.
2) adityamunshi. can contact him through PM.
3) chevelle. In the last conversation I had, he was in US.

Can I have more details about the plan ? I will surely contact adityamunshi.
Are you planning to use NH8 i.e. coming from south ? If coming from north direction I think it will expresshighway from A'bad or else meeting on NH8. Just give a bit more details. Or else just link to posts.

Baroda:

I think you have Dr Bharat Patel also in the group from Baroda.

Yes, we will come from South - Bombay, and proceeding via expressway to Ahmedabad.

mjothi has a draft driving plan in an earlier post in this thread, but timings are not yet firmed up.

Baroda is not planned as an overnight halt, so ideally it will be a early evening break, which means some minor snacking. Unfortunately, I cannot think of any suitable place on the Baroda bypass.

2) OK will look into it.

@hvkumar:

I did searching from member list and there are 39 if " baroda " is entered and 16 if " Vadodara " is used.


Total members registered at T-BHP from my city are 55.

Earlier I mentioned a location that is of no use. It is on the route to A'bad if NH8 is used till A'bad. But here we are talking about GQ.
Now I think that one end of NE-1 ( GQ ) is very near to city of Vadodara that will be accessible to everyone in Vadodara. Those coming from Mumbai will anyhow have to reach that starting point of NE-1.
But no place for snacks, etc. So the break can be on the NH8 itself near Por and those from Vadodara can travel down south on NH8 to the location where member will be having 1-hour break.

I wont be able to participate in the drive to A'bad. I am not sure about other members.
Yes it is difficult to find the proper place to spend one hour peacefully near the starting point of GQ. So travelling down south is the best thing to do for anyone from Vadodara for meeting other members.

If a break is planned/confirmed, I will be coming to meet those on the drive for sure. Again if 1-hour break is planned/confirmed, then I can try contacting others also.

NOTE: I am not sure if GQ has any special provision for those on bypass to join GQ from middle.
I will now be searching more on this.
