Thanks everybody. Had a pretty relaxed weekend. Special thanks to ultimatechamp. It was better than how I expected it to be considering the fact that ultimatechamp handled the show almost single handed.

cutting down the words to pictures, here goes...

Default Here come the pics

Drive Log 1:

Nos P comes to my house early inthe morning (at 7am you see!) and the bugger wakes me up. We then reach Super Snacks Bar where we meet up with Abhishek Sarkar (& group), Premjit & Ronk. Meanwhile I recieve a call from Bonobashi who's already reached Turf View. So we head towards Turf View to meet up with Bonobashi. Called up Planet and as expected he was still in the bathroom so we set off for the pre-designated meeting point at NH6. After sometime the cars keep coming in and within a short span of time there was a huge cavalcade of cars on NH6. Folks exchanged some greetings and we started for the Baganbari (Farmhouse).

Drive Log 2:

The Farmhouse the just the right kind of place to host a picnic and thanks to "Daktar Babu" for excuting it so well. Everything was perfected to surgical precision if I may say so. The meet was no doubt a GRAND SUCCESS and I'am sure everyone must have enjoyed to the fullest - I know I did.

Simply amazing is what I have to say about this meet. UC's organization skills left me in awe. Doc! You have a career to fall back on!

The north kolkata guys met up at Windsor Honda around 830 hours. We left after razor arrived. The belgorhia expressway route is excellent. Post meeting up with the rest of the guys, we landed at the 'baganbari' around 10. a sumputous breakfast of kachori-sabzi later, the perfect sunday was jus getting started. The bottles were opened while Xeta got the mood running with some nice guitaring and singing. Then began the 'sound off' part of the meet where almost every ICE was listened to. shuvc was seen running his magic on a couple of cars. But the music we got to listen to, after the sound-off, were the roars from the razor's mistress and vrooom's baleno! Razor, I must say that exhaust sounds really really nice!

Soon, lunch was served. With a full stomach, more than one BHPians were seen catching a quick nap! (vrooom too - bt sorry we didn't get any pice this time!) A long adda session ensued, some more music - of the acoustic kind, making today as one of the most relaxed and chilled out sundays of recent times!

Special mention -
daktar babu, I know this has already been done but no words will be enough! please convey our thanks to your sister and bro-in-law.
xeta, for the music!
shuvd, for being the first and the last to hold a drink! kudos, and respect, for not getting your car to the drive. I 'll see you tomorrow!

ps: premjit, pls PM me your number for 'you-know-what'!!

Ok ok. The language was not exactly as mentioned above. But you get the drift ...
After the intro's and nametagging, we move to the lawns.

All this while, everyone is hungry. Like, i mean really really hungry. Except for one gentleman. His only question. Daaru kaha hai bey ??
Can you guess who that guy is ? Go on, take a guess.
Nopes, I'm not telling. Chalo, on with the story...

Brilliant meet. Kudos to the Doctor for taking time out from his schedule to arrange everything and to everyone else for attending. It was lovely meeting all of you.

When should we start planning for the next one ?

It was nice meeting two non-bhp members today - Tuhin and Rahul - who came with BB. Tuhin is pretty knowledgeable about cars I thought and should be promptly made a member. (BB are you listening?)
But I also missed ADC and Anirban. ADC of course had ruled out participation right in the beginning but Anirban ditched pretty royally at the last moment. In his and his family's absence, my daughter became the only child in the meet :(

I think now we should plan for a long drive kind of meet before the end of winter.
