Not sure if there is any other group.

Dan is too lazy to start another group.
What about members new to Team BHP like me ?

I think making yourself present for the next Powai Mini Meet may get you added in that group.

Now when we will have the next Mini Meet is a big question!

re: Fortnightly mini-meet : Mumbai BHPians

Weekly is impossible. Fortnightly is possible for some on some fortnights and possible for others on some other fortnights. So logically should be sustainable. But in reality, that's not true.

So what is the right frequency? Once in a month? Once in a quarter? Or completely ad-hoc - whenever 3-4 people feel like "its been long since we met. Let's catch up"?

I prefer planned meets ... like every alternate Friday or 4th Saturday of every month. Otherwise a significant amount of time is just wasted to figure out a day that is suitable for all.

Let me know if some concrete plan for a meet gets finalized. Would love to join.

I agree weekly is very difficult. I am Ok with Once in a month or ad-hoc when its been long.

me too prefer planned meets, but I guess its become very difficult to find a mutually convenient time for all to meet.

we can decide a day like u said. 2nd Friday of every month is what i suggest.

lets see what others have to say.

I feel once a quarter is fairly good considering that weekly and monthly are a bit aggressive. Also instead of Powai, outside Mumbai would be preferable where we get some fair distance to drive too.

Seeing the same faces week on week or month on month basis would be too much for asking isn't it??

OK with either monthly or quarterly. OK with other locations as well. I have no affinity towards Powai.

But something has to happen. Don't let this fizzle out please

Can I suggest a Saturday for the meet then? 21st January 2017??
Breakfast Drive to Dutta Snacks on NH3. Short, sweet distance. Plenty of time to time to chitchat.

If not then a lunch drive to Oye Punjabi before the Padgha toll.

Sorry to suggest a saturday, since weekdays its hectic to do office, meet and then run home.
