I forgot to mention one more important point in my earlier post or rather forgot to Thank a couple of guys.

@Maverick79 (Nagendra) - Thanks for being the head master of the class of BHPians. The excel sheet with the list of participants and mobile numbers was really handy. Also you took the attendance religiously and did not accept any proxy attendance

@Maverick79 and @GautamKhadse - For being the financial controllers during the meet and voluntarily taking up the task of collecting individual contributions from the team.

Couple of other important points:

- Because of the meet there is going to be a churn of jobs in Pune IT companies. Swanand's better half did her introduction of being in the recruitment department of a major IT company and before she could finish there were resumes flooding her desk

- Also please watch out for the detailed report of the Drive Meet on Doordarshan's Marathi Batmya. We had the official Doordarshan cameraman join us for the meet. Thanks to Konjaril's freind. We have also made a decision to come up with a detailed documentary in the near future.

@Ashish - Not much discussion happened on the next drive meet as such (atleast i missed it). It might be difficult for me before March 31st.

@Sudarshan > You not allowed to drive your Land Rover next meet. YOU STEAL THE SHOW always !! No one peeps into our brand new expensive cars. Every one stares and peeps into your Non a/c, non stereo, non power steering Jeep.

The Rover is a show stopper in the fashion parade of cars. Well done Sir !

For chris sake, sell me your Rover !!

Cheers

Just got up from sleep and logged in. I knew it! Pics would be there already.

What a wonderful and relaxing Sunday we all had isn't it? It was, as if, we all knew each other for a long time. Which is kind of true since our virtual selves have been meeting on the forum regularly. The best part was the discussions were about anything but office. We also learnt about everyone's automotive "wet dreams" like Sridhar's 5 bikes, Amit's Leh plans, Sunil's restoration and mods, JD, Ajay and Sudarshan's 4x4 talk.

Really admire mdsaab for driving really extra miles to drop by and say hello. Same for scphanse.

Noopster and me exchanged our cars. I had a good time driving the Vento AT. The handling reminded me of the last gen Camry somehow.

Looks like we came as Bhpians and left as friends.

Boy-O-Boy !! What a wonderful Sunday .

I'ld start the other way round :
Thanks to Salil , waking up early at 6 ,just to see us off @Chandani Chowk (all the way from Aundh ) . Commendable !!
mdsaab to pay us a quick visit out of his planned way . It was nice to see you drive for a bunch of kms just to say a " Hi " !! Commendable yet again .
Gaurav : Though the last minute entrance (in the confirmed list), glad you could make it on time for the meet .
Maverick79 (Nagendra) : Thanks for that extra bit of effort !!
Amit(amitwlele) : Thanks for the necesarry liasing with the Buninda Guys
Captain Sir : Thanks on behalf of everyone for taking us on a tour -de -lavasa .
Anvancy : Thanks in anticipation of some stunning pics of the meet .

Thanks to all for giving up your Sunday morning sleep


As decided 6:30 AM , the early birds (Sudarshan , Capt Sir ) were already present at the decided spot . One by one the folks started flocking in and , the car suddenly seems like a " Fleet of cars "

The car (LR) .

Yes Yes , it not only Amit who wanted to sit in the LR , everybody had the same feelings .

It was really nice meeting all of you. I regret going back so soon, but due to my poor planning and my university's special sunday exam I had to turn back.

The LR was a treat! Kudos to the person who found the detour for the photo shoot.

I am in for the next meet, and with something for you all to treat upon if everything goes as planned.

Regards.

Looks like you guys had a great time. Nice pictures too. I was reminded of our drive to Lavasa in Nov 2010. See the report and pictures here - (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...ur-date-7.html (Chor Bizarre, Lavasa meet - please choose your date)). Only the Captain was there for both the drives.

+1 to Turbo. Although I do not work on Sundays, there are other commitments which I can skip only occasionally. So a drive/meet on Sat makes it more feasible.

Our last Lavasa drive (Mumbai-Pune Team-Bhpians) was a nice one too. Anyways, Turbo, we have not seen you after you took us to the Kaas flower show. Waiting for that this year too

You couldn't have said it better dotty.
  • For me the moment of the meet was when Pankaj (jealousdiamond) pulled over to the side in his Safari to shepherd the rest of the caravan through as a big construction truck was trying to pull into the narrow road from a dirt trail leading to it. Spirit of TBHP
  • mdsaab landing up with family in tow en route Mahabs was a lovely surprise (it's quite a detour!)
  • konjaril and his +1 get the "coolest couple" award- landing up in that awesome Opel Vectra was good enough but then we find out that he designs custom automobiles for a living and she is a TV cameraperson-turned-cinematographer!
  • Got a chance to drive a Honda Civic AT (dot's) and it was amazing. The cockpit is so funky with its digital display, the handbrake positioning (after Vento!) is awesome, and this baby handles like it's on rails. The too-small steering wheel took some getting used to, I'll tell ya! Got a chance to rip my own beast as well- on the way back I was alone (since left early) and really had a fabulous drive- it was only the crazy early afternoon heat that was the irritant.
  • It's so amazing to hang out with likeminded souls: I can imagine passersby thinking "He vede lok swatahche sodoon gaadyanche kay photo kadtaayt" (Why are these nutcases photographing their cars instead of themselves?!!)
  • Wonderful to meet the +1s as well: next time will get mine along as well (she was out of town on work).
Didn't get everyone's numbers but will definitely PM you for these.

What was the menu for lunch? Next time I will not miss!

I was delighted to meet first, Sudarshan and then, Gautam and then a few others, at the start point.
Regrettably, I had to leave early - even before the others arrived there.
Looking forward to meeting you all the next time.
