@Planet, you have a worthy successor in UC as a meet organiser ! Well done UC - taking care of all the details.

You would need to put up the breakfast start time. IMO, we should all be at the Baganbari by 9:30am latest.

Can we have a pack of 30-40 safety pins handy? And can someone take the pain of printing the T-BHP handles of all confirmed attendees?

Thanks a lot for the encouragement dada!
This is exactly what I wanted to say. It is a picnic and not an invitation for lunch. So,guys please be at the venue by 9.30am as told by shuvc.The time for breakfast is between 9am and 10am. After that,it would be nicer if we hit the bottles and other refreshments,that would be spread out (both veg and non-veg)

Daktar Babu. Its definitely going to be one of the best meets ever.
Kudos to you for taking care of the arrangements so meticulously.

Just one question. I hope there is ample parking space there.
Thanks a lot to you too Xeta. Without your constant help and valuable inputs,it would have been a daunting job till now.
By the way,as I had mentioned earlier in this thread,there is ample car parking for more than 50 cars,within the baganbari itself !

Few updates once again :

Arrangement has been made for ice boxes,so supply of ice for the daru-lovers should not be a headache!

It would be a buffet. Though provisions for chairs has been made.

Food has been finalized and ordered already.
Breakfast would be a simple affair. Refreshments would be miscellaneous and plenty (both veg and non-veg). Lunch would be sumptuous and quite lavish, IMO (again both veg and non-veg).
Cold drinks,fruit juice,soda,etc is not being arranged,because it will vary due to personal taste.Every member is free to bring along their own fancy.

Tentative contribution amount inclusive of everything would be Rs 400 per head.
Hope that wouldn't be too much considering everything.Detailed break-up of the cost involved will be available once calculations are over.

PS: By tomorrow I will know the exact cost involved per head and it will be around the figure I have quoted above.I will also give here the account number and the bank code,so that contributions can pour in.I have promised the caterer an advance on wednesday morning.So I would need the amount by tuesday,i.e. 18th November.

Now is the time to finalise the meeting point (and time ) from where we could drive down together. UC should also post the address and direction to the baganbari for those who might be a bit late for the on road meeting.

DONOT give bank account details on an open forum - it will be better to PM the details individually to the confirmed heads.

i donot have this online money transfer thingy. we (rocker & toiingg) will pay either shuvd/shuvc and tranfer the money to daktar babu.

UC is doing a great Job - the BOSS needs to retire someday once he finds the best successor

I second that.
I suggest mail the account details to the individual email ids instead.

Great going daktaarbabu! Great planning! Hats off, and I am sure this will be a super event for all of us

@shuvc: The name tag idea is nice. Would suggest peel off label stickers instead of safety pins & paper. People can pick up a sticker when they come in, write their respective names and stick it on. So someone just needs to carry some labels and a marker.

That's a bit too much to the east actually for people like us living in Behala, Tollygunge etc and will mean a lot of extra travel. Why don't we meet on the other side of the river, like near the Metro Cash & Carry site?
East Calcuttans can always meet at the pump and then come together.

Some, like shuvc would probably be taking Belghoria expressway instead of Kona. Would suggest the following - the people taking Kona could meet just after the Vidyasagar Setu toll booth, say around 8:45. Leave that spot around 9:15 for Dhulagorh. Those who don't make it there by that time can go directly to the Baganbari. It's not that long a drive really.
The ones taking Belghoria could meet before/after the New Bali bridge - similar timings and stipulations.
Does this appeal to junta?

I think this makes sense. But what's the Baganbari address/direction? Does it make sense to have an advance party to reach there?

Amazing organization skills, I must say! Kudos to you UC!

I know it might be a little late but a friend wants to join in. Though not a TBhpian yet, he is a fellow Illusion and GZ listener (thanks to me!) and an avid Cedia driver! Not a problem if it's too late!
