    This was my first TFI meet and I really enjoyed it. It was real fun driving along with Fiatians, even the usual boring 4L stuff became exciting with italian beauties flying around. First time since my Linea's purchase, I did some real good speeds and got to experience the amazing stability of the car on the straights and while cornering.

    Some awesome pics there and I am already looking forward for the next meet. Thanks to the organizers for all the plans and efforts put behind.

    For all the efforts and plans to be successful, its the participants who make it a success. In this aspect, the Bangalore folks have been great. Without you guys, the meets will never be a success.

    Looking forward to the numbers swelling with each meet.

    Another notable aspect of the memorable meet was adherence to schedule. We had almost full strength before the scheduled departure time at the meeting point. It was fantastic to see people who had come with lovely little ones also were on time. It was a commendable effort considering the cosy, chill, lazy Sunday 7 AM weather in Blore :p

    This was my 7th TFI meet and the first of 2014.
    I wanted to take my 10month old daughter also. So I could depart early and had to wit till she woke up and got ready. So I couldn't join the meeting point.
    I told @Ravi and @nkrishnap to continue and that I'll join them at the breakfast point.

    I left my home at 7:06AM and drove non-stop hoping to catch the convoy in the road. But the convoy were faster than I expected and I could only join them at the Restaurant as they were lining up the cars.

    The line up

    I put my car in the line and came out to be welcomed by known faces like @Ravi @nkrishnap @turboKarthik among others. As we went inside, I met @arun_josie @karthikk ajit and many more. We had some wonderful breakfast together

    As I paid the bill and came out of the restaurant, I saw the surprise of the day-An Italian beauty on two wheels. The DUCATI 848

    Hot!

    There were a couple of RD350s parked (not in our group) and on seeing them, my daughter wanted to sit on it. She just loves bikes and cars like her dad :)

    DSC_7014_LR.jpg
    Daddy, I want this!

    Then we wanted a photoshoot. but the location was not good.
    After the meet I wanted to go to a dam. Since the initial plan was only breakfast and many people didn't have time, I had not told this to anyone, but now I put forth this idea and immediately everyone agreed. Fiatians just need a reason to drive don't they? :)
    I was asked to lead and we started to the dam backwaters. Pretty soon we were at the backwaters of Markonahalli dam.

    I parked my car and then slowly everyone followed me and started to line up their cars

    After the photoshoot, everyone left the place saying their goodbyes to one another. It was a satisfying Sunday.

    Nut I had not had enough :). After my daughter finished playing in the water, we decided to visit the dam too.

    Let's play

    The dam was a kilometer further from the back water. Its a small dam but Its one of the first dams built by Sir M Vishveshwarayya. All it takes is a few steps to the top of the dam.

    Steps to the top

    There wasn't much water but there was a cool breeze going around and we enjoyed the view too

    The dam gate was closed but an irrigation department person allowed us on request and he guided us around the dam. He showed us the auto-siphon technology in the dam that is the first in the country. No wonder Sir MV is called a genius. It was a nice experience but photography wasn't allowed.

    It can hold 98feet

    We did some bird spotting too...

    As we came down the dam, we saw a baby goat. My daughter wanted to touch that.

    It was indeed an awesome meet. @arun_josie has rightly summed-up the passion that gets created even in the new members when they are among the ever-passionate TFIans. This event also showed some of the real good photography skills. I could not attend any of the previous meet too and it was a good platform to see real faces behind the TFI handles. Thanks to all the organizers for putting efforts in making this meet memorable. Hope to have many such meets often.
