Meetup Description: Final Update
All rite, folks! I hear you, and in case at any point I gave the impression that I was planning on shutting down, I apologize. I am way to addicted to these meetup's to stop now. Of course, being me, I will let loose and vent and demand more participation etc etc....but hey, the greatest thing about email - you can always press the delete key"
OK, on to action ....
We are going out this weekend, and the only reason there is a cut off date is because I need to know how many folks are coming. I am not CANCELLING this meetup even if its just me, Gita and Advait :)
From : 6.30am May 1st 2009 (Friday)
To : 4:30pm+ May 2nd 2009 (Saturday) even if we are delayed due to too much fun, we will be back in Bangalore by 7.30pm / 8pm on Saturday - so you have Sunday to recover.
Location : Camp Shristi (Of Camp n Cook fame)
Basically 60 kms out of bangalore
Meetup Point : Jewel de Paragon Junction Map before 6.30 AM - Note : We leave @ 6.30 AM
Activity (or What the Heck are we going to Do????)
This is basically a camping and outdoor meetup. We stay in tents (at nite, only!) and we have a truckload of out door activities during the day.
Here is the activity list :
Rock Climbing / bouldering , heck else what would I do ????
River Crossing and other muddy water stuff
Pleasant walks in the meandering hills - ( they really are just that, not treks by any stretch)
The secondary list of activities (in camp and around the campfire are ) :
Frisbee - beginers welcome
Dumb sharats (did I get the spelling right? )
Note : After my last experience, I am seriously thinking of banning poker !!!!!
Cost : Rs.1,750/- only for TWO days! *Terms and conditions apply, please read on.
Please pay in cash at meetup point (see below) - I get exhausted trying to handle funds and refunds!
Children below 7 years are free!
Friday - Refreshing drink, Lunch, Chai, Dinner
Saturday - Breakfast, Lunch, High Tea
Camping gear - Tents, Sleeping Bags, Carrymats
Great company of outdoor loving, positive folks
Friday - breakfast. (Note we will stop enroute for breakfast, but each one pays for his own! ) I admit, I hate doing this....
This is always the one item which adds exponentially to the cost. So lets try a new approach.
We will do car pool - from Jewel de Paragon to Camp Shristi and back is 120 kms.
Car Ride : If you hitch a ride you owe the car owner (not necessarily the driver - as in my case!) Rs. 100.00
Bike Ride : If you are pillion on a bike, then you own the person giving you a ride Rs.75.00
Note : This is totally independent of the above trip cost, and a transaction between the person giving the ride and the person getting a ride. Now if you can serenade or otherwise get the ride ticket waived off - good luck to you!
I am putting up the rates here, just to make the negotiations easier on Friday morning
Verboten (NOT ALLOWED) Alcohol in any darn form!
What you need to get
A couple of change of clothes - very light n cotton.
Personal toilet kit
Water bottle - dammit, how many times do I need to mention 2 litres, minimum :)
Rs. 1750 in cash (no debit cards, and IOU notes accepted)
A very positive, sharing and fun loving attitude - it could be pretty hot during the day
