Ok. The countdown has started for the Saturday meet.
@vasooli Anna. Are the negotiations with the Dhaba persons done?
@AP. I will have to go back early as my wife and daughter would be alone. I travel 70 kms a day to work which eats in to my personal time. So weekends are like bumper time for me and my daughter. I'm also thinking of a drive to Malsejh next weekend and am trying to fit the meet in the plan so that I can spend time from 6 to 11 there.
Got to work on the logistics.

I'm going to get my camera and netbook. Planning to load things live in T-BHP as it happens in the meet. What say all?
Also let me check on possibility of live webcasts, though my 140 kbps speed would give serious bandwidth issues.

Friends, Romans (Mumbaikars, Bombayites, Suburbanites),

For all those travelling from Mumbai for the Lonavla megameet, we had a discussion (yesterday in our Mumbai t-bhp meet) on our likely meeting point in Mumbai prior to taking the NH4 for Lonavla.

speedy suggested that we congregate at the round about from where the EEH carries on straight and the left forks on the right to VN Purav Marg (the road going to Diamond Garden and on to Shivaji's statue). I think it is a good idea as all of us can meet at this spot and proceed in a convoy to Lonavla.

To reach sunny's dhaba at 6 pm, should we meet here at 4.30 pm?

Regards

Is there a further away meeting point at say Vashi or the MacDonalds near the starting point of the expressway?
The reason being that folks like me who stay at Mulund/Thane/Vashi would have to actually drive back to meet you all at Chembur.

When we go offroading to lonavla, the meeting point has always been McDonald's at Panvel. The south bombay and western suburb guys meet at sion. All the rest catch up at McD. I think that's what you guys should do or it will get too confusing.

>>> I had suggested a single meeting point so that it won't get confusing. Initially I had posted the meeting point to be Inorbit Mall, Vashi. The nearer the meeting point is to the jumping off point ( NH4 to Lonavla) the better.

We have three choices now :

1. The EEH/VN Purav roundabout
2. Inorbit Mall Vashi ( Pot Pourri?)
3. McDonalds' at the start of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway

#1 seems to be out.

We have to finalise on either #2 or #3.

Moderators,

Request to put a poll as follows :

Choice of meeting point (for the Mumbai crowd) for the Mumbai-Pune megameet in Lonavla, 17th July, 2010 :

1. Pot Pourri at Inorbit Mall, Vashi
2. McDonalds' at Panvel, at the start of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway

Time for starting from meeting point : 4.30 pm, sharp.

Regards

IMHO McDonald's at Panvel would be the best point as the Inorbit mall and the station area in general at Vashi are choc-a-bloc with cars and people on weekends starting Friday.

It might be a bother to find space for waiting etc. McD's too might have its fair share of vehicles but still the situation would be manageable.

Alright here is the final deal from Big Wheels Motoring, didnít speak to Sunny Da Dhaba guy. My recommendation is, lets meet at Big Wheels it will be a great fun out there.

Menu :
1. Unlimited Veg Snacks : Honey Chilli Potato and Paneer Chili
2. Unlimited Non-Veg Snacks : Angara Kebab and Chili Chicken
3. Unlimited Veg Main Dish : Paneer Tikka Masala and Spicy Veg
4. Unlimited Non Ė Veg Main Dish : Butter Chicken and Mutton Handy
5. Unlimited Indian Bread (Roti, Nan, Paratha plain or butter)
6. Unlimited Jira Rice and Daal Fry
7. Limited Desert One Dish per head : Vanilla With Hot Chocolate
8. Unlimited Cold Drinks (Soda, Coke or Sprite)

Costing :
Rs. 400 per head in case we assure 25 count and Rs. 430 per head in case we assure count 20, in both the cases even if 10 people turn up for meet, we will have to pay for 25 / 20 people. (Standard rule, in last meet at Sunny we had min assured count of 35). We have to confirm the count by Friday

No byob is allowed in Big Wheels, but 10-15% discount on available stuff. And some packages are available. Throw in your thought, and I will confirm accordingly. If nothing works, last meetís option Sunny Da Dhaba @ Rs. 600 is available as is. However as I said, my recommendation is Big Wheels, lets experience what is made for people like us.

Again sorry for the delay, but you guys need to be very fast to confirm this. Wake up, last time we were 45.

Ashish, you need to push these guys hard by the way lets charge a huge penalty to Kalti Kings this time. And Next Meet is at Baramati
