    Date - Saturday, 21st December 2013.

    Venue - Thattekere (or Mahadeshwara Temple Lake)

    How to get there - The place is just 35 kms from Central Silk Board. The route map.

    What is there? - (All image credits and copyrights belong to the respective owners)

    a lot of these

    and very rarely this

    Now for the twist:

    There are no eateries nearby, unless we drive back into the city. So, the plan is to make this a pot-luck lunch drive.

    Here is the plan - Group at Adigas on Bannerghatta Road at 7:30 AM for breakfast. Start from there by 8:30 AM and drive down to the lake-side. Reach there by 10:00 AM, walk around the lake, shoot the birds (with a camera of course), discuss things, generally laze around till about 1:00 PM. Then have the pot-luck lunch and start back for home by 3:00 PM.

    Here is what I propose - let us start a list, with names, number of people coming along and food items one will get along. That way we will not have shortage of food or too much of some dish. Let me start the list.

    1. Rajan + 2 - Christmas Fruit Cake - Butter Chicken - Veg Pulav

    Please add names to the list.

    ^^ That is true. But in this case, I made an exception :D. Did not want a situation where everyone gets rice and no one gets curries :evilsmile

    Consolidating list, so that copy/paste is easier

    1. Rajan + 2 - Christmas Fruit Cake - Butter Chicken - Veg Pulav
    2. Shams + 1 -
    3. Cubbie + 1 -

    Rajan

    EDIT : Let this not deter single people. You are welcome to join and can get stuff like fruits, chips, soft drinks, etc. :D

    Thanks and I too wish to see good participation. You got the "butter chicken" bit right. Also, my wife continues to be a non-vegetarian :)

    Yeah, that is me. :)

    Count me in as tentative for now, Rajan. Would confirm by the weekend, as I have couple of things to be taken care of, back home. :)

    Nice initiative Rajan, I wish I do not miss this like I missed the service.

    In that case you should add in the attractions :cool:
    Bachelors staying away from home are the one who should be participating in huge number atleast for the home made butter chicken!!
