BR Meet - Bangalore

Postby rohitvats » 13 Apr 2010 14:03

It has been some time since we had the last BR Meet in Bangalore. A lot has happened since and there is enough material that is waiting to be dissected by see-near maulanas (along with Chikken Tikka). The nanha-mujahids in audience can listen and learn about the IED avoiding techniques and how to survive the bredators.

The plan of action is this:

a) Venue - A hotel/club with hall where the BRFites can meet and interact. I'm personally not in favor of meeting in a restaurant or pub as it doesn't allow for easy interaction.

b) Food - Ah!!! the logistics part..Arrangement for starters, buffet lunch/dinner and drinks. I have some basic stuff in mind here...couple of veg and non-veg dishes.

Now the questions that need to answered are these:

a) Number of BRFites planning to attend the meeting
b) Timing of meeting - Lunch or Dinner

No veneu or location has been considered so far. Though, I'll be having a look at couple of options this weekend. The same, along with quality and variety of food and location is contingent on the number of people attending. And of course, the money baby...which I don't think will be a problem. IIRC, last time we contributed INR 700/- per head.

Today is 13th April...I propose the date of 1st or 2nd May for the meet.

The thread will run till next Tuesday to get the attendee list in place. Post that will work out the location and finances. Any volunteers for help and assistance are more than welcome...

I liked the last meet although some unusual events took place converting my proposed alcoholic jingogiri to sober daaktari :mrgreen:

I'm in. Rohitvats is always a person you can sit and listen to forever..the last half of his moniker means he has vats full of info in his head.

Count me in as well

Anshul had done a great job in fixing the venue last time + grub+LCD projector - thanks again

Phil was kind enough to fill in for Simon's no-show and present the booty from their recent airbase visits - have the original CD if anyone is interested and missed seeing as was kedar's amazing slide show


Shiv - hopefully you will have a first aid kit plus your surgeon's scalpel this time - after a few rounds may come in handy and u can charge your usual"fee"

I had attended the BR Meet in Bangalore during AE 2090. I landed up with a mild bout of loose motions. Maybe I ate a bit much. But I suggest that you do not keep the same place

I have AQK'ed this book, I would like to add it to BR circulation library "Ballistic Missile Defense : Benson D. Adams". Shiv is it ok for me to give you this xeroxed book? It is an interesting book, it dwells on both they economics as well as politics of BMD deployment apart from the development of BMD in US.

Would also like to know the secret of Kersi Bawa's recent activity spike on BRF. Bawa shu khadhelu chhe? :D
