Smile Kolkata Meet - 17th / 18th April 2010

As you all know we had great meets earlier - i still recall the days of the first FIAT Meet in Kolkata (The First Kolkata Meet), followed by the Spinning FIAT meet, The Raid de Rajarhat meet. All of them were great in their own way. Wanna take a look?

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Kolkata Meet (Report and Pics Updated))

Rudra Da Special:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Kolkata 'Gola' Meet - July '07)

Meet Phoenix (Razor's Ride)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Independance Day Meet / Drive @ Kolkata & Meet Phoenix)

V-16's Kolkata Visit

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Kolkatta Calling)

The Best Drive of our Group: (check out the video)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Kolkata-Shantiniketan Meet - Nov 2007)

Wet Meet (Team BHP Rules came in later - sorry mods)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Calcutta TeamBHP house meet (The "wettest" Calcutta meet till date))

Oh Well! ETC wins the battle:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Planet ka Wedding Meet...)

For more, click (includes UBS OTR Meets): Team-BHP - Search Results

But somehow, not all meets were fatafati - like this one:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...hlight=kolkata (Bongo-bondhu - Lets Meet - 20th December 2009 - Kolkata Meet)

I have strong feeling that the Bongs and Non-Bongs have lost it - the bond that makes us a Family -> The Love for Cars. May be that is why we are not meeting. At the end of the day it is not the food, the 'adda', the funny kathi-baji we enjoy that matters. It is the Cars, the Love for Cars that bonds us together. I always think / thought that we are / were the best when it came to meets (well - we donot have fun at trace tracks, we donot have fun at Official drag meets) - To Kya hua?

Buttt... we have lost it...The Love for Cars that pulls us to the Kolkata Meets because we all Live Cars.

Wanna prove me wrong? Lets see...

I will see you here:

Date: 17th / 18th April, 2010
Gather: Opp Nicco Park (yes the same old place)
Drive to: Tangra (options are open)

PMs will be sent soon. Group mail sent. Hope to see you there.

Till then Take Care and Drive Safe.

@Planet: Totally agree with you. I've enjoyed every single meet since i joined the group and am looking forward to some more. Still deeply apologize for not being able to make it to the Peter Cat meet.

But this time, its on..for sure. Also, been waiting for a chance to introduce Blue Streak to the group.

Confirmed:

1. Premjit w/ Rocket and Blue Streak

@saurabhda, The mere sight of the snorting and menacing BH will send other cars scurrying for cover. We will find massive space.

@planet: We can hit Golden Joy. Its got a Multilevel car park. :-)

We can try out our usual Motel Midway (Sonar Bangla) on the NH6.

But keeping it within City Limits has it's own advantages. April will be a HOT month - keeping it within city limits will put less stress on the engines

Sorry mates! I will not be able to make it, as I will be out on business trip from 9th till 27th April to my head office.

I am now eagerly looking forward to the next meet. Hope to see the pictures soon.

Sorry again.

I'm not very sure if I can make it. My exams get over on the 16th. 18th would be more convenient.
