Next week.

Right after the show I escaped to sunny goa with my friend and colleague Klaus (the tall bespectacled German guy) and the two of us marinated on some secluded beaches.
One of my bestest holidays.

In any case, I have relocated to New Delhi for 2 weeks and will receive all the photos and videos in the next few days.

This party is going to go on for a while.

Default Teaser photos

Here are 2 or 3 pictures to give you a taste of things to come

During the Miss JBL competition


The crowd is getting out of hand. F50, Iceman and Flying Spur are trying to keep the crowd at bay. Speedzak and Sam yelling out instructions. The moment is electric.

Mary Anne prepares to wow the crowd. She was clever, sexy and curvaceous and a good dancer to boot and was pretty sure of winning.

Default Release yourself

It was a stressful time, even though it was fun. A lot of hard work was put in by the team and we were heavily assisted by some of our boys.

At the end of the very difficult day, Sam starts doing what he does best. Goofing off.

That was quite a teaser! And yeah, that crowd was totally spilling over. Legendary tales and subtle snippets shall be thrown out into the open once the Sam-a-thon is underway. Fantastic.

Looking at the crowd in the pics.

By the way when did this Mr & Ms JBL happen?

Default The Mr. And Miss JBL contest

I have still not recd any photos from the show, not from my camera and not from the pro photographer.

But without further ado, I'll start showing you what I have, so you can be a little more patient till the pro photos are in.

The posts I make will not be in chronological order, as I do not have the photos of the first 3 days. However since the topic is on Mr and Miss JBL, let me describe to you ONE evening out of the many at this mother of all events.

We had 2 pro photographers at the show, taking photos of the bikes and the guys and the lovely gals and we were printing out many and handing them over and even framing the bass king photos.

But till then, for those of you that missed it - here is a quick recap of the evening of the contest.

Waiting for the sun to set.

While there was a little party every day in the JBL private room, I was not always present to be a part of it. Many BHPians like Aditya, Dippy, Fireblader and Speedzak were part of the crew that was making sure that everything ran smoothly.

Iraghava was pretty much in charge of the judging angle of the contest and he set up the rules, questions and point marking system, briefing the other judges, normally_crazy, Aditya, Klaus and Andy (from JBL). Last year Zak was part of the judging committee, but this year Zak was really busy, pretty much in charge of all the lovely ladies backstage and singularlyresponsible for making sure that every performance on stage went through smoothly.

His help was deeply appreciated, he kept insisting it was just for the chance to be inside the backstage party. I'd say he really likes them girls though... lol

Members like Arpandiv (DoggDigga) and Flying Spur are around to help in any way they can. Iceman is having a party and showing off his nitro RC cars...

We do not have much time, the crew are running around like headless chickens, the lights, stage and sopund is perfect, we're waiting for the sun to set so we can start up the stage lights.
The crowd is swelling.

Meanwhile in the JBL private room, the BHPians are having a lovely time with their beers and bacardis. Power Horse gets word that JBL is having a private party and they decide to sponsor us a few crates of their energy drink too.

Some are chatting and excitedly relating stories of the Bass Kings and the lovely, lovely girls all part of the JBL crew. Some have tried, some even successful at taking a girl (or two) out of lunch or a coffee.
Some are busy discussing the rules of the personality contest and going through the entries.

All in all it is a blast.

You can also see mmmjgm, V12, Ford Rocam and Mad monkey in these photos.
Outside having a blast are the bangy boys, the pune boys and more. I actually think this was one of the largest congregation of BHPians I have ever seen.

The crowd is buliding. Khushi and Neeraj are on stage and they call Alina and Sana up for a little chat. The Beautiful JBL twins are ready to give up their mantle this year.
So many good things have happened to them over 2008, they are so easily recognised now, thanks for Big Boss and more.

Everyone is in place. The 4 bouncers are not enough and F50, Fireblader, Arpandiv (doggdigga) and flyingspur take it upon themselves to try and control the crowd.

Now - it's showtime.

That, hombré, is a Crumpler "status belly". I like to think that it is a fashion statement *haughtily throwing back my hair* harrrummph.

And it was full of money. For food, ghoos and more. lol

Besides, I had to be in top form. As the present BHPians will confirm, this year the list of lovelies was longer.

Today I have received all the photos. And I'm going to start posting photos for the next few days. As many as time will allow, lol.

Please don't ask for them in any particular order, I have lost all sense of date and time, lol.
