Don't get fooled by that photo of MX6 holding the cue stick and the spider (I'd have loved a spyder instead - but then who wouldn't?)
Incidentally, the Raja babus were better in pool than MX6. Guess Ranjith was just playing below his level just to give company to MX6.
MX6: Did you see the rajababus playing pool?
Ashishpallod:

They were a riot.

And Ashishbhau. That photo shows how much my tummy has reduced! You've made my day. Been consciously reducing so as to be in peak form for the ratangad trek.

That was one rocking meet. Folks from Mumbai had planned to meet at McD at 4:30 PM but the best part was we didnt knew each other hence didnt have a clue who other T-bhpians were from Mumbai. When I reached McD, I noticed a group standing there and asked them whether they were from T-Bhp and the look on their face post that question made me run away from there. Looks like they were someone else taking a tea break.
Post that I waiting patiently at McD for 15 minutes and left alone at 4:50 PM and reached the venue alone. We seriously need to have some T-Bhp tshirts or ID tags for future meets.

Had a great time at the meet. Got to meet folks like Ashish, MX6, The Saint, speedy, tejas, Cyrus, Kavesh, opmishra, SuperSelect, issigonis, sprucegoose and others (My apologies I dont recollect all the names). Had a long discussion with Speedy on his "Bid Baddy" car and later with Ashish on the back roads of Maharashtra.

Vasooli Anna a.k.a Sagar: Was nice meeting you. The place was good and the ambience excellent. Hope you didnt have to shell any additional amount from your pocket.

Had an excellent drive back with the saint, he in his civic (man, those are some killer headlights that you have) and me in my Dzire trying to keep up with him. Hope you have reached home safe and sound.

MX6: Looking forward for the Kaas trip.

Thanks everyone, it was really fun meeting you all. Here are some details :

Location : Big Wheels
T-bhpians from : Baramati, Mumbai and Pune
Cars : Wide range right from Santro to Mercedes, from very old to brand new
Main Attractions : Saint's Civic, OneSelf's Sonata V6 Manual and Speedy's M - Class and OneSelf's chamiya dance :P
What we did : dont ask lots of fun
Total Count : 32
Total Bill : 15.5k something (I think it turned out to be great deal)
Total Collection 16k something

Some mismanagement happened in bills, dont want to blame anyone but seem like few guys paid less or did not pay, this might have happened bcoz of some confusion. Thanks to all of you who paid rs 10 extra plus some of you who contributed while settling the bill.

Overall it was great fun guys, let make it big next time. And i promise you better arrangements.

This case happened with almost all Mumbai members who came alone all the way.
It would have been better if there was co-ordination between members from Mumbai.
Though team-bhp stickers are available, lot of members are hesitant for stickers on car.
We seriously need t-shirts.
If possible, admin can consider made to order t-shirts with handle name on it, of course with price.

The civic of The Saint has really good headlights and the ICE.

Thanks sagar for handling the accounts.
Its always pain to handle the accounts of such event/meet and you are taking that pain for last two meets.
The cafe is really good with ambiance and suited for motto of the meet.
The food was good.

I hope, you will not give up the job of vasuli anna for the next meet.

My apologies to 'TheSaint' and 'WDM007' how did I not mention you guys in my post meet post, my dinner partners respectively & others whom I am still forgetting. WDM old stories can indeed be a 'hoot' to recall right MX6?

The drive back was super, especially the bit immediately after the khandala tunnel what with the clouds blanketing everything including the road till after the Amrutanjan bridge. The monsoon is here but still not here!! I just got back from an early morning outing at Zenith falls, they are like a shadow of their true selves. Hopefully it will rain more but only once I have reached Dry Delhi tomorrow.

Sorry Iqbal bhai, I had no camera yesterday, so no pics from my side. . But we missed you yaar - please make it the next time !!

All had a blast at the meet, thanks Punekars and Baramatikars for organizing this.

Left from Nashik at 2pm. and Thane at 5.30. Drove through horrendous traffic, to reach Panvel, where I met issigonis. Ripped down the expressway, met sprucegoose to the food mall.
Weaved through even more horrendous traffic along the Ghat, nosed down the second exit.
Searching for the venue, I almost believed we'd reach Pune anytime now !!

And there it was - the lights, the cars, the Team-BHP stickers.. We arrived !
Attacked the food and conversations with gusto. Great meeting "the faces behind the names"

Ashish bhau, great to meet you.
MX6 - super report, spot on as usual ! Let's catch up sometime.
throttleking - great arrangements, the venue was rocking - hats off to your patience !!

All the others I met -The Saint, f1fan, Khoj, kenpachigamer, WDM, ranjith - to name a few. (sorry if i'm missing anyone, still groggy from last night) - great guys, great to meet you. We need to have another dhamaal meet Really soon .

Default My Report

Started from 12mati at @2:30pm with three other friends in swift-dzire.

after traveling about 30km,

Friend no 1: ashish, where are we going?

me: to kamshet

friend no 2: why are we going there?

me: to attend the team-bhp meet.

friend no 3: what is team-bhp?

me:

btw, i am really happy person for having such friends who are ready to do anything on the call, they came blankly to Singapore on my call and then there is no big deal about such small trip to kamshet.

while going to pune, clicked the pic of clouds over the mountain of fort purander and fort vajragad.
Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-13.jpg

Reached to pune outskirts at @4:30, had t-break, continued to the venue via katraj-dehuroad byepass.

Reached the venue the big wheels exactly at 6pm.
I started to curse myself to be again first to reach the meet venue.

one shy guy was coming toward me,

he: hello, team-bhp?

me: yes, i am ashish

he: hi, i am amit, wdm007.

And i had big smile, there is at least wdm007 who came first to receive me.:


WDM007[ extreme right] with my friends.
Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-12.jpg



I started to explore the place, interacted with the Appa, 70 year old owner of the venue.

wdmoo7 and ken..kenpachu..err..kenpachi...kenpachigame...ohho ..kenpachigamer trying their skill.
Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-8.jpg

After that, it was time of arrivals and more arrivals.

By 6:45, it was moderate size of @15 guys discussing the cars and k n filters and what not.

Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-9.jpg

Uske baad, yeh hua.

Rajababus settled for nice glasses of Apple juice and rooh hafza and Sprite.
Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-3.jpg

Then this happened. Remember the earlier conversation?
MX6: Did you see the rajababus playing pool?
AshishPallod:

Rajababu 1: If MX6 can play pool. So can I. I've just seen him hit the ball and am trying. If I end up playing better, hope he doesn't ask my thumb as guru dakshina. It will be very difficult to support the cue stick after that.
Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-4.jpg

Rajababu2: I have to hit the ball in. What's great in that. Yeh raha danda. Woh raha ball. I don't see anything else. I'm concentrating hard. Just like Arjun.
Invisible Dronacharya: Arre Arjunbabu. You have to use the white ball to hit another ball in the pocket. You should not hit the white ball directly in the pocket.
Mumbai-Pune megameet at Lonavala: 17th July 2010-5.jpg

Rajababu3: You guys be in Mahabharat times itself. I will take expert advice.
"Typical gangster style. Look at his mouth. Look at his mobile".
Haan Sethi bhai. Angle hai 30 degrees. Distance hai 122 cms. Impact pe momentum kitni honi chahiye?
MX6: Who is this sethi bhai jiske saat aap circuit jaise baat kar rahe ho?
Khoj: Geet Sethi.

There's a bit of imagination involved in representing the above scenarios.

After completing the shot Rajababu 3 searches on the side wall. Yehan pe ek "sprite" ka bottle rakha tha. Kidhar gaya woh?
