    Amogh October is a festival season, we have Dusshera, Diwali in Oct so lets keep this in mind.

    Dusshera 6th Oct Thursday
    Diwali Week Starts from 25th Oct to 28th Oct.

    We need to arrenge this meet in between 7th to 20th Oct as it is a festival season. I am not sure how many of us prefer to attend this meet in festival season.
    So before organizing this meet requesting you to keep an eye on above mentioned dates.

    I thought it will be in Dandeli:punch.

    You guys have kept the location very far from Bangalore, intentionally?
    But I will come:D. Let me plan.

    Nice initiative Amogh, I'm in provided there is no unforeseen circumstances.

    However Rajasthan is a bit of a trek from the guys down south. How about Pench It's fairly equal distance from most of the place. I'm not sure if Pench is suitable or not, but just a suggestion

    Mumbai - 934
    Pune - 816
    Delhi - 969
    Kolkatta - 1174
    Bangalore - 1149
    Chennai - 1212
    Trivandrum - 1811
    Hyderabad - 583

    If you look at the distances it averages around 1000 Km's which indeed means 4 days will be of drive including the return journey. Let me know your thoughts.

    Equally good idea!

    The site does not mention any open/closed dates!
    so I guess we can visit sometime end of September!

    Pench National Park safari timings talk about winter and summer timings only and do not talk about monsoon timings. This Park is also closed during monsoon. http://www.penchnationalpark.com/safari-timing.html

    All national parks in Madhya Pradesh [Bandhavgarh, Pench, Panna and Kanha] are closed during monsoon. https://www.mponline.gov.in/Portal/Services/Forest/Search.aspx

    Only Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve [Maharashtra] is open through out the year except Tuesdays. http://www.tadobatiger.com/pages/seasons.html
  7. sounds good idea....i will be in provided the meet is before or after september.

    Great initiative Amogh and all those who did the back end planning. I cant confirm anything as such about my wife and kid, but count me in.

    Pench looks drivable in 2 days from Bangalore in which case my family may join, Ranthambore is just too much for a drive with family, but if its fixed I will join by flight or train. Have seen some really great pictures from some of the photography gurus in Flikr.

    A TFI meet for me is all about driving my Punto and meeting awesome TFIans. Ranthambore is really very far to drive and I am not sure if many people from Hyderabad including me would actually make it for a meet held there. Also even if we do extensive driving, we will be either too exhausted for the meet after we reach there and I can't even start imagining how it would be to drive back after all the fun and tiresome events that might happen at the meet. If the meet is at Pench then I will be joining for sure, probably along with my family.
