Have went ahead and made some reservations for tomorrow at the Baywatch beach homes At Cherai Beach.

This is gonna be the venue

So please make your conformations for the evening so that dinner can be pre ordered, the seafood like crabs and prawns , take their own time so , it would be better if we get a head count and what you wish to have for dinner conformed either by sms,pm or by posting here itself.

Cheers

Thank you Muneem. We need to get the head count before tomorrow afternoon so that they can catch some prawns and crabs and cook them for dinner.

Muneem and I went to check the beach resort 'Baywatch' and that is the only one facing the sea, while the others have mosquito infested backwater front.

All we need now is an approximate headcount and food preferences so that food can be ordered.

The Meet Was really good, some guys missed it and they are still crying over it . And for the first time everyone kept their time.

The meet started at vivekji's place and everyone drove from there to the beach was in normal bhpian ishtyle Convoy of cars,the beach was pretty much crowded and as usual no one bothered to explore around the beach there were much better things to see like the All new Supeb ,some ICE demos and then came Hydrashok with his SQ Machine it was an out and out SQ audition for some time,inturupted only by the throaty(SQ) Roar of the Rhemus Exhaust and intake noise of the K & N Appolo.

It was getting dark and everyone was ready to munch on something, the food ordering went haywire, lack of planning as our resident Foodie/Food Critic and Master Order Placer A S I V I N was at another venue busy on munching something else,missed the big guy when the Crabs,prawns and chicken was gobbled down.The Venue was pretty much okay except for a couple of usual 'happy Sunday' mallus who were in full freeflow mode.

We split up from the venue by 8:45.The Thrissur boys left from there and then we went for a post meet drive in the Superb to the Airport road it was all about making donuts and eating Beef Dry Fry(BDF) , the drive was simply wonderful a full blast on drive in the Superb,Vivek was at the wheels of the Superb which was actually a virgin(done less than 1000Kms), The ESP lights were going on and off every other second. The car was holding on pretty tight into corners,except for the slight understeers the car took up the abuse pretty well, the only grouch was that it is was a FWD car ,else it would have been more oodles of fun.We can expect a full review of the car by vivekji05.

Some pics from my Phone and Vivek's Cam.
