    I hate to say it(I stay in Bangy!)..but definitely Bangalore will be central location for everyone in South.
    Another advantage good connectivity to every other place.

    Can we think of any place near Bangalore (there are many - at 150-200kms from here).
    Bandipur, Nagarhole, Sivasamudram, Hoganekkal, Kabini, Bheemeshwari.

    I am game for it. Why not have a poll and first decide on the place before we proceed further?

    Talakona Waterfalls and Jungle

    How about Talakona Waterfalls and Jungle ??

    Talakona is located in NERABAILU Village in Yerravaripalem Mandal of Chittoor District.
    Located around 40 km from Tirupati, Talakona is a forest in Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh. An enchanting picnic spot, Talakona is considered to be the threshold to the seven hills of Tirumala.

    Talakona is noted for its scenic beauty comprising lush green vegetation and a perennial waterfall which cascades down from a height of 270 ft. You feel like you are in middle of the nature. You can clearly listen to the sounds of birds chirping, flow of waters etc. Guest house and restaurant, run by Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation, is available.

    Distance from major cities

    Hyderabad : 578 Kms
    Bangalore : 293 Kms
    Chennai : 220 Kms
    Kochi : 664 Kms
    Trivandrum : 780 Kms
    Tirupati : 049 Kms
    Horsley Hills : 113 Kms

    Then what about the Banglore guys, if we decide on either Bangalore or Mysore ??? :D

    Some one has to drive less and some one has to drive more for sure. You can drive to Hyderabad with us to bid good bye after the meet. :p

    Seriously, we have so many exotic locations in the south and we are unable to decide on one. Come on guys....

    Lets concentrate more on the Venue and surroundings and also regarding the stay and other facilities. I expect more than 40 Cars and 80 member participation. So the accomodation part will be the biggest issue in the end. So lets speed up the decision making ..... Thers is less than 2 months time and the clock is ticking.
