Default The "Wet" Meet = of a different kind!

Ok, so here's a brief note about the meet. It was an extremely wet and gloomy day, and some Kolkata Tbhpians cancelled their participation due to obvious family commitments. Still the enthusiasm of 16 souls (names to follow) could not be dampened.

The first few of the lot made it to the IOC petrol pump at 11.30, and continued to wait patiently for the rest to arrive. The last one (that would be me ) came in at 10 mins short of 1, due to some problems at home that held me up! Thanks to all you guys for displaying such spirit and agreeing to wait so long in the rain.

From then on, the convoy of 6 cars made their way to SEP Kolkaghat. The rains had turned NH6 into one big wet stretch of tarmac. It had also (thankfully) led most of the slow, errant traffic (rickshaws, pedestrians and anything else that holds up cars) stay at home.

Bhpian Ayan, who was riding pillion in my car, took some lovely pics of the cars on the move.

1100D had already arrived at SEP by the time we reached, and made necessary bookings. The afternoon passed like a breeze with some lovely food and lots of chat. The meet was also enriched by the strong participation of Bhpian family members. The only dampeners were the service issues and the flies.

Overall, a lovely meet that turned out to be "wet" due to reasons unforeseen.

Participants:

1. 1100D
2. Mrs 1100D
3. Miss Little 1100D
4. Rik (1100D's cousin, hope I got your name right)
5. Planet_Rocker
6. Indrani (Mrs PR)
7. Predatorwheelz
8. Ayan
9. NOS Power
10. Premjit
11. Mrs. Premjit
12. Saurabh M
13. ShuvC
14. Ninja (Nilanjana/Mrs ShuvC)
15. XetaGLGRocks
16. Razor4077

The Cars

1. Fiat Palio 1.6 (Planet_Rocker)
2. Predator (My ride)
3. The legendary Phoenix - Mitsubishi Lancer (Razor4077)
4. Rally Prepped Maruti Esteem (Saurabh M)
5. Shadow - Maruti Zen (NOS Power)
6. Chevrolet Aveo 1.4 LS (Premijit)

@1100D and Predator: thanks for the lovely pics.

We enjoyed a cuppa at Outramghat on our way back, as the sun was setting on the ganges. Wished the rest of the gang could join.

Most of the pics on my cam were taken by others, so a huge thanks to them (in certain cases!)

Interesting Headlights (God knows where did they nip it from)

Wonderful pics 1100D. The title in the menu card takes the cake indeed.
Razor, extremely nice to see you back on the wheel.

Lovely pics, Anirban Da. Some of the captions were quite funny. And thanks for that mug (or should we call it Balti?) shot of mine!

I remember one of the ladies carrying a camera too. Can we have your pics, please?

what man! No pic of my car in 'aksun'? :(

Lovely pics indeed.

@ AK - we called Zappo when we were at Kolkaghat at around 3.30pm - he was somewhere near Bhadrak, Orissa (the roads were heavenly is what he said - one can easily touch 120 and let the cars rest in heaven ) - he was supposed to reach Kalyani by 7.30 yesterday and give me a call. I guess he is busy with Mrs Zappo for the time being.

people who were missed at the meet:

1. Pushpak aka Vrooooooom (note 7 'o's)
2. Abhij - what happened dude - got stuck with something - we waited for you at the venue.
3. Me-sid
4. the D.
5. Da Daktar with his Estilo fitted with a turbo-charged horn.
6. Toiingg - where were you man.

We will organize another in-city meet by the end of this month - Zappo will be forged to join us. we will keep you guys updated

Arey ! No credit to yours truly for spotting the title !

Nice meet. And as everyone has commented - with Sher-e-Punjab being the dampener with some below par service. We ordered food at 3ish and they took 1hr to deliver. Add to that the flies and the leaking 'roof'.

The drive was lovely. Around 70kms from home. I drove alone. Was a bit late in reaching the NH-6 meeting point. Never caught up with the gang.

Ninja asked me midway - What's wrong with you? Are you ok? Why are you driving so slow ?!

I was sticking to a steady 80. May have touched 85 once. I had left home without topping up. And although I had enough for the trip, I thought this was a nice oppy to do a mileage run - given the relaxed afternoon meet and the wet roads.

Topped up today. 42.9l for 590kms. 13.75kmpl !

Oh btw, Ninja still feels that Shuvd's Stage 2 Octy exhaust note is the benchmark

Is Zappo going to Calcutta from Hyderabad by car? Is he going to settle in Calcutta?
