In case I can meet, I am hoping we have a decent drive as well (apart from good food!).

I am out if it's on Saturday. I am one of those unfortunate guys working 6 full working days a week. Anything on Friday would be much appreciated.

In the chat group, a suggestion for venue was Bikers Cafe at Al-Quoz. What do you guys think?

Isn't bikers cafe in JBR? The one in Al-Quoz is called cafe rider. Perhaps a more pocket friendly place? Student allowance you see.

Any suggestion on the location and the date? Fridays are 3, 10, 17 & 24 in April. I don't mind meeting on a Saturday as well.

Since we are already 5 members, why not have a meet on the 10th of this month at a mutual location? Since the Dubai meet is barely active, me might as well have a sort of mini meet to jump start the Dubai thread. What say guys?

Yeah, Cafe rider. That's more pocket friendly.

I am in for 10th April. Not much to do on 10th, but will be busy on 17th though. Just let me know the time and plan. Or should I also enter the organizing committee ?

Sorry Guys, I will have to opt out as I will be in Fujairah for a Fishing Tournament. The plan is to fish all day, starting from 6 AM to 4 PM. If that plan is cancelled, I will definitely attend.

Hi Mates, I jumped at this subscription thread as soon as I saw it in my inbox. It's been a while alright since the last meet. I estimate we were about 10 odd members who met at a coffee shop last time on a Friday. I am game for a Friday (since that's my day off) and any place on popular consent. How about the Autodrome Mates

How about we go karting to Emirates Karting Center @Jebel Ali. Not a lot of people know about this track but it's pretty good and its 50aed for 15mins.
If we are looking at a casual meet, then maybe meet at 2nd December street @ Satwa (formerly known as Diyafah), there is a tea shop and is extremely popular. We can meet maybe post / pre dinner. Let me know your inputs guys. Hope this meet works out.

Just bumped into this thread. I'm in for Friday if there is a meet.

Teashop at Satwa is the usual meeting point for our riding group after city rides. I would prefer that place if its late in the night.

Since it is pretty hot in the day, I propose a meet at the teashop in Satwa at around 10pm on Friday (10/4/15). Ample parking, good tea and a good place to relax and talk. Pour in your thoughts guys.

Jag,

We will do a late evening meet, something like dinner meet or pre-dinner meet. I hope you can join us in that case. We are even talking about 10 PM which is quite late, and you can easily come for that right?

We must try and pull out something on this 10th if possible. On 17th, Raj is away and I will be caught up till the evening. Other's will be busy irrespective of whichever weekend we are talking about

Great! Will be a pleasure to meet you. Hopefully we will meet this weekend. I hope it's not too late to plan 48 hrs in advance.

Everyone can be in organising committee as you said. Weekdays seem very hard, but on an odd day if there is attendance I can leave work a bit early and meet up for something fun like Karting.

Guys, inbox me your numbers. What do you think about taking this discussion to Whatsapp, in case if someone is away from bhp he (read me) might miss out on updates. Let's try and do an economy (or whatever) meet this weekend.

I am game for the coming Friday (10th April) if the meet is by late evening. One of the ideas bumped in the Whatsapp group was to meet at Festival City and then drive to International City for dinner. Festival City idea came up as it is easily accessible via Al Khail road, by SZR & by SMBZR and they have plenty of empty parking lots on a Friday. Raj has promised to guide us to a nice Punjabi joint for Dinner at International City. One of the identified points was the parking lot in front of Marsa Plaza (25.230924, 55.346723) right beside the Creek. I suggest that everyone inbox Anoop (voyageur) with their mobile numbers so that he can add the numbers in the Whatsapp group.

Looks like this meet is really gonna happen!

I am in for this weekend and seems like Friday is the popular choice. Fine with me as even if I have to stay till late, I dont have to go for work on Saturday.

Regarding the location, we need to decide one soon as three locations have come up at the moment -
  • Teashop at Satwa
  • Cafe Rider
  • Festival city
