Default Report..

Just got back guys. Had a lovely meet, thanks to all those who attended. Great food, friends, and conversation - let's look forward to many more meets !!

Reached BN at 12.15 sharp, and booked a table. Was immediately joined by Dippy, gomzi, Sprucegoose, and Iqbal Veerji. The others (14 of us in all) joined soon enough, and we dug into some fantastic barbequed starters.

Post starters and a superb buffet lunch, we attacked the desserts with glee. . Conversation flowed, the topics chiefly being cars, and more cars.

A quick drive down Carter road, a photo shoot, and more car chats.. Amazing how the topic of the Automobile binds together guys who were complete strangers till two hours ago, recognizable only through posts and handles - Cheers to that !

Here are some pics:

Smashing. I made it to the thane lunch meet. But this one I couldn't as my monsoon calendar is full. Hence shied away from this thread for long.
Hope to catch most of you guys (preferably all) in the Mumbai Pune megameet next saturday!

Great time, great post & pics.

Let's meet regularly. As a first step, let us co-ordinate our Lonavla visit for the mega meet this weekend.

Its was great meeting everyone and had a blast, totally worth the sleepless night. Went home an filled in on the missing sleep.

Ravi bhai great pictures and thank you for organising and co-ordinating the meet.

Issigonis could not agree with you more, lets try and make this a monthly meet so that more of us members could join in. It would be great having like minded people around and not to forget some good food to go with it.

Like i suggested Issigonis instead of having two different meeting points for south Bombay members and North Bombay members a common spot say the road after the flyover and Just before the Chembur signal circle would be a great meeting point for both sides. It would save everyone the trouble of waiting at two points for members to arrive.

speedy,

Monthly meets are fine with me - talking with and listening to all of you is a great experience for me.

Re. Chembur round about as a meeting point for the Lonavla megameet, I'm fine with it. I guess we should post this in the Lonavla megameet post - would you like to do it?

Regards

Was an enjoyable first meet. Exactly as i had put it in an earlier post before the meet:

Heres my take on it (albeit in a haphazard manner)-
A complete assortment of cars along with a lovely silver & black Bike.
As can be seen in the pictures, from a Maruti 800 to a Mercedes E Class & literally every segment in between!

As for Barbeque Nation, really good food (Id say hog the starters as you would the main course & eat the main course as you would the starters, after which, just like Sprucegoose did it, go for 2 helpings of dessert).

Carters was random discussions (Cars, cars & more cars) rather than checking out each other's rides. The weather was contrary to what we all were expecting & was pretty hot & humid. Finally, a hint of rain caused us all to end the meet early & disperse.

Heres a surprise for SuperSelect who did all the clicking. Guess what, you got clicked as well...
Time for a Mumbai mega meet: 11th July 2010 - Pics on pg 15-superselect1.jpg
Doing all the clicking while passersby wonder whats going on.
Another interesting thing was that of the two lanes on carters (apart from one for parking), we were all standing & discussing in one of them next to the parked cars, oblivious that its the middle of the road and turning Carters to a one lane!

Coming to the BHPians, from an age point of view, we were as varied as the cars themselves. Different personalities too. Further, this was the first BHP meet for the majority of those who attended. All this made the meet even more interesting.

The humorous part was when people started turning up. Since it was a first meet & nobody really knew anyone, as soon as someone would enter, the people already present would turn their necks (even when in converstaion) to check if it was a Bhpian. In turn, the ones that entered & actually were bhpians, would gaze back with a blank expression & ask "BHP?" and everyone would be all grins & smiles.
At one point we were contemplating sticking stickers on our heads just like those on the cars in order to be recognized
@SuperSelect - you should have captured every newcomer's expressions, it would have been classic!

Ill end this post along with a picture of SuperSelect returning to the group after all the hard work of fitting all the cars & trying all angles to get good pics. The effort he took shows in his pictures & also in this one

P.S. - A big Thank You to SuperSelect for organizing, co-ordinating & capturing the meet & making it all possible.
@issigonis & speedy - Monthly meets would be great. Im all for it.
Finally, am looking forward to making it for the Lonavla meet now & having a nice drive to & fro as well.
