Lovely meet - 8 folks turned up. Jacksons saab exited as roy entered - whatay timing

Ace_F355, self, .anshuman, the cheap guest libranof1987, jacksons, roy_libran, bloodred, behemoth.

behemoth saab was a virtual mine of information on cars - technical hands on knowledge - the kind of guy who would tell you the model of injectors used in your cars, whether it had variable torque or not, and such like. Again, he's left the auto sector

Damn wonlee! :(

I could've spent any number of hrs on the meet if it was on Tue, but yesterday just wouldn't have worked for me. In fact there was an office party as well to celebrate a milestone. Couldn't attend that either.

+1

If there's one regret I have about my 2.5 months in Ggn it's that I've met the man only once, that too for a very short while. By the way, Hits, Behemoth and S# were classmates in college!

Yep, nice meeting you all, folks. Had a good time.
@ spadix: There is always a next time, bud!

Thanks libranof1987 for posting the pics. Just for the sake of others, I will do the name tagging.

Pic# 1 (L to R): Roy Libran, bloodred, Phamilyman, .anshuman, libranof1987 and Ace F355.
Pic# 2 has Behemoth instead of Roy Libran.

As discussed in the Mini Meat, it is probably worthwhile that we start thinking about possible dates for a Gurgaon (/ Delhi) Mega Meat.

We should probably have Three date/time/location options proposed and take a vote on which one, folks find most preferable.

If we can have 1-2 months advance notice, I guess we should have a good turn-out and gathering.
Should be a family event too, to increase the participation levels.
As we keep discussing, turn-outs at these meats are usually affected by Wife Considerations. I myself am a victim there.

I have one other suggestion. Since this forum is all about Automobiles, it is bad / sad that we leave our babies / babes outside in parking lots when we meet up. Should we not, instead, plan our events, in a way, that they can be a part of the scene? I'd certainly love to see Ace's Angel Eyes lighting up the scene while we party along, with Music from someone's ICE, rather than a stupid DJ somewhere!

I leave it to the leaders to plan things out... But, please do!

Thanks Phamilyman!
It was great to meet all of you and look forward to many more such sessions!
Let's try to make a joint outing somewhere for our next tapri meet.. maybe a place like Delhi Haat on the Jaipur highway (approx 20 kms from Rajiv Chowk)?

(PS: apologies for the late response, we are currently renovating our house and things are in a complete mess!)

While a place like that may theoretically be okay - the problem practically is that everyone comes and goes as per convenience, and then a few must report for diaper duties quickly. Net net - we need a central easily accessible place with OK parking. There are few better places which fit the bill.

If you have any ideas within gurgaon, let me know - i believe that the accessibility of the location always increases attendance a bit. What do u think?

That said, good to see you - you must be more regular - its always humbling to discuss tech with someone who can rattle off injector part numbers!!

Well, the usual Ghosts are lurking around. Where's Ace, Anshuman, Eddy....?
:-)

8th Jan maybe good for me, but it all depends on when the OTR finishes that day.
NIOC have an OTR on the Sunday, so if I don't get late, and you are prepared to admit a dishevelled, dust-laden guy in your midst, I shall be all too delighted by your company.
