@Ram & Black- I think the discussion is going haywire with no proper conclusion. I would say we have close to 7 cars who are ready to join for the big event. But 4 are Petrol 1.6 S10s. So a maximum one side distance of 500 Km would be feasible. Its like plan an equidistant location and post a thread. It would be fine if we have close to 50 cars. Moreover Dec 31- Jan 1st is the peak season for any resort and the accommodation charges are going to be sky rocketing. So we need 45 days after we get the confirmed participants to make arrangements for approx 50 cars. OOty seems equidistant from all parts of TN, Kerala and Bangalore. We have to think about the Hybd guys too.. So lets not go around the bush and decide on a locale and start off with the bookings and procedures.
