    Why don't we just drive out of town - within a 50 km range and meet up for lunch somewhere? I am sure we can identify places with ample parking and enough room to accomodate a group. We could gather in the lawn / outdoor area and discuss, get to know each other, break the ice, check out each other's drives and then head inside for lunch.

    PS: I cannot make it on 25th either. I am open for 2nd December, though.

    Well said. Let give oppurtunity to owners and other TFI members. Its better to reduce the size from 10 to 5 for better crowd managment

    Are all decent hotels in Pune in the price range or 3K+ per night? I would personally look for something in the range of the Centurion hotel or less unless someone tells me that hotels in that range are bad.

    I would not even look at the Westin's and the O's unless it's my honeymoon trip ;)

    Yes, I am looking for something on the lines of Centurion Hotel (Mapple Adhwryou with the DEAL comes close). I only posted other hotel details as I thought it would help others in their planning. I am on the look out for good budget hotels and I will post them here after short listing them.

    I have been thinking about it for a while and it doesn't make much sense to spend that much on hotels if we are just planning on staying there for the factory visit. Of course, if we are planning for 2 nights in Pune then it's worthwhile else it's not. Do note that Hotels have a 12 PM checkout policy.

    As for me, I will be coming with my friends (not sure if my friend's family is coming along) and so we may leave for lonawala after the factory visit (that is if we don't have anything else planned). Currently below is what our plan is

    Option 1: Take a deal from dealsandyou and book Mapple Adhwryou for 2 nights(13th and 14th). It is costing around 4050/- (with the deal). The hotel looks great and is nearer to Ranjangoan. Then 15th morning head to lonavala :D

    Option 2: Book for a night at Pune at any good budget hotel and then after the factory visit, we will go directly to lonavala and check-in to a hotel there.

    I am just waiting to see the final plan from Amogh.

    P.S: Please note that the rates I mentioned above are not inclusive of any taxes that may apply at the time of checkout.


    Hmm, "unless it's my honey moon trip".. So I take it that you are still eligible then ::T

    Team,

    December also sounds good if most of them can make it, I thought that a early fixed plan would help in planning, deciding, preparing in advance. To meet - If most of them prefer CCD then that's where we will head, however personally I still would prefer it closer in city.

    I would prefer if we could meet somewhere in the city. Given the unpredictable traffic, reaching KR Puram itself is almost a 2 hr drive for me (from Rajarajeshwarinagar) OR any place on Mysore road is fine :D

    Urraco and Rachit Bhatnagar... A Big Hug to both of you Bros...

    Round of applause from my side to the big heart you have shown :clapping

    I still possess high hope that I'll be able to make it to this mega event and will be able to meet like minded Car-Crazy(as my wifey addresses me) with big heart...

    I'll be in Pune itself from 12th December, 2012... so, even a last minute notice would also be enough for me to join you all...

    Cheers...

    Neel :up
