It was a typical Hyderabadi winter morning when we set out to the meetup point, cold and foggy.

As all the members had gathered, An introductory session and the rules to be followed by all participants during the drive have been

updated.

Please increase the travel distance to at least 100 kilometers. For me it is always about drive rather than destination. :cooler:

Looks like it is almost 3 years from your first meetup.

I remember the good old days.

10~15 members in WhatsApp group.  Now we maxed out. 

Keep hosting more. 😀

 

Hope you guys will plan some local meetup to the WhatsApp group members.
