Unlike our previous meets, this is going to be a very very sober meet..would you guys want it this way??

I would prefer Sailing Annexe for the shear view that you would get of the Tank Bund and Secbad Club is too formal I guess.
The club rules are slightly more elaborate. For example - no speeches or clapping allowed (unless it is in a private party area). No photography. etc. The place is meant to be somewhere one can enjoy a quiet relaxing evening by oneself or with friends. One noisy or boisterous table can ruin the evening for the others.

Though the dress code is quite simple on the face of it, i.e. trousers, shoes, shirt or collared t-shirt. Gentlemen are expected to be 'appropriately dressed'. The appropriately dressed bit is the one that causes the trouble as it is difficult to understand. Just to elucidate, a pink lounge suit with flouroscent green shoes & tie is not 'appropriately dressed' though it fits with the other rules, the letter and spirit of the dress code are to be respected, so a bold check shirt under a jacket would be out too, also out would be the combination of grey trousers with brown shoes or brown trousers worn over black shoes.

If it is to be the Sailing Annexe, I would suggest we book a private party as the rules are a little more relaxed on the noise level front for pvt. parties. The terrace on top of the boat shed would be ideal or failing that one of the halls in the 1st floor might do nicely. I do think they have a min no of PAX for booking and the banqueting rates are in the range of INR 150 per head.

The Hyderabad Boats Club is a good option, decent views, good food, VFM i.e. total paisa vasool and we would not be adding to the decibel levels.

If the head count is below 10, Club Kohinoor in Begumpet is always open.

Cheers,

Ravvs, be prepared for this one.

Since i can see the topic veering from reality to dreamy illusions, we may have to fall back on the in-comparable " Club Kohinoor" for this get-together :-)

Cheers,
Now where is this Club Kohinoor?

+1 Sir, the only issue I foresee is not being ourselves if we opt for the gentelman's club and what's the fun if we don't make some ho-halla, that too while we are meeting after quite some time.

Take a call guys..I am Ok for all options.

Okay Guys, I called up Mr Sagar just now, who apart from being a friend is the member of Hyderabad Boat Club and can get us entry into the club, and requested him to book the private lawn of the club for 8th evening (regular lawn for a member with so many guests is frowned upon hence the private lawn idea).

He will revert back tomorrow before lunch time whether he could manage the booking for the private party or not. Chances are 75 %.

If the booking gets okayed, the deal goes like this :

The venue will host 2 parties, 1 being Team-BHPians and 1 being an Alumni ReUnion.

The bills will be made out separately for both the groups.

The decibel level of T-BHPians will not be a bother for the other group since that group will be me and my batchmates (we are expected to be 6/7 of us).

Keeping my fingers crossed - else I need to figure out another venue for the reunion.
