A proper group photo (with name tags) is a must. Failing which all of you guys will be banned permanently.

Don't for a moment think that I'm not serious about this action.

What is the drill on these meets? What does one bring, other than cash?

Damn!

Before any moderator has apoplexy, let me hasten to point out that the origin of that expletive is from the Dutch coin of very small value, the dam, and not from hellfire and damnation.

Corrected numbers: I sincerely hope nobody actually tried the incorrect one.

If anybody tried the earlier, my apologies.

Guys from South want to meet up somewhere say New Alipore Triangular Park and then head towards Nicco?

Edit: Change of plans, I'll come via Khidderpore as I'am going to bring a friend along with me.

Come to a WET meat. Then you can test your tolerance to a bunch of extremely sloshed 20 somethings.

Great meet. Biggest meet so far in kolkata ( correct me if i'm wrong ).

I think this was kolkata's actual monsoon drive.

had the honour to meet 1100D and few new members.

nice pics abhishek.

I think it was great attendance, given the weather. Just wish we had enough space to mingle around, rather than sit in a fixed place, like we had to do. That way one ends up talking to just a few guys around.
Was there any photo session? Sorry I had to miss it as I had to come away earlier than the others. But I can be seen in a few shots here.
I think the second photo (rain swept fence of some Sector V property) is simply beautiful.

Default Well all the Pics I could take...

No doubt one of the wettest and biggest meets ever, it was a lot of fun to meet up in person with so many members and go out for a ride together. Let the pictures do the talking (my slow internet connection is such a let down )

Unfortunately there was no 'proper' photo session. We had planned to regroup at Rajarhat on our way back to have a proper photo session but the rains came down so hard, that it was just impossible to do so.

Great meet nonetheless. Waiting for the rest of the gang to post the pics.

Yes, well, now that we've met wet, I suspect it's more a case of the extremely sloshed 20-somethings having had to tolerate a rather warm 50-something.

The coffee after was nice too.

The improper ones were quite adequate, I thought. But it was agreed that one of the older members would do the labelling, putting names to faces. That still needs doing.

Some of the pictures I took were taken by 'steam' and it will take time to finish the roll, develop the pictures, scan them and upload them. Some others, on the cellphone, alas, will be uploaded as soon as our friendly neighbourhood computer maintenance personage of distinction obliges me by returning my lap-top.

Till then, I can be identified by my dark red T-shirt and the large tonsure on my head. Also by my scrupulous care to stay away from the camera. Don't want to leave traces behind, do we?
