    Some good news......I met Nasir bhai today.....discussed stuff a bit and have concluded that a mini meet of sorts is possible tomorrow second half. In fact Nasir bhai is very much eager to meet the Karachi Chapter members, especially with those who he has interacted a bit over the www or phone.

    It would be an informal go-with-the-flow gathering, cant say what the venue shall be but probably in the boat basin or Gizri area. I suggest Nashtrooper coordinate the gang who are interested in coming down tomorrow (I have lost many phone numbers in one of my cell phones so my VW contacts list is just a fraction of what it used to be)

    I shall be at work tomorrow till about 4pm and would join as soon as Nasir bhai gives me the green signal after letting Nashtrooper of the plan as soon as I can.

    Lazeez, if you want to drop by Sunday morning, you can see us off and would be most welcome.

    I know this is not what anyone wants to hear but unfortunately we have to face this......folks are welcome to see the rally off and briefly chat with the members on Sunday early morning. Anyone dare to be an early bird when Sunday is a favorite for late risers (like myself)??
    .....love to see off the Rally. location please!

    ^^ Location is Mohsin Bhais home.

    Its near PNS Shifa hospital, you may take directions over the phone from me. Simplest approach is from the Sunset Boulevard signal at Punjab Colony.

    @ all folks

    We gather today at 4pm at Mohsin bhais place for an informal meetup and get a chance to see the rally cars and preps going on. All Vdubbers are welcome....having a Vdub with you is not mandatory but preferred strongly to add color to the rainbow.

    Hope to see you guys there!!

    Yeah we missed you and kashif as you both committed to reach there..
    Anyways we all 'Me, Haris & Dr.Asad' had a good time.
    There were also chance to meet with few other Bug owners from Karachi especially Mr. Nasim Mughal & Mr. Ameen.

    Now I come to the point why we decided to have an informal meet...
    The main agenda of that meet up was to welcome our members of VWCOP who came from Islamabad to take part in 3rd Cross Country Rally of VCCCP,, so we did that but not in the format we should follow as they all were too much busy in their rally preparations, that's why we just had a small kind of meeting, chit chat which was quite interesting especially with Romano & Nasir Shaikh,,

    At least for me it was the great feeling to see their cute & charming Bugs in person for the very first time and also to photographed them which would be shared soon.

    I think the most useful part of the meeting was not to see off the rally participants from Karachi but to join them till their first short stop at Hyderabad after leaving Karachi was really amazing..
    To go with the rally & then see off them from Hyderabad Toll Plaza was great fun.

    The 2nd main thing to discuss there was to share our views about our upcoming Get together.
    So in our little discussion we decided to postpone the event just for a week as their would be a bright chance to join few other Aircooled owners, till then they would be back from the rally especially Mr.Mohsin Ikram.

    So now the new date & time is Sunday 18th November, 3.PM sharp at Hill Park until no further changes are made.

    ^^

    Thanks for the updates Nashtrooper....

    A special thanks to Harris (Lazeez) for taking his bug with the rally at such a short notice and above all with his own commitments like an exam he had today. Hope you did well on the exam, at least all my prayers were with you!

    Harris's bug performed flawlessly without as much a hiccup and he should be proud of it. A pat on his back for keeping his ride in good shape.

    About our upcoming get together.......yes we all agreed to postpone it to the 18th of Nov, prime reason being Mohsin Bhais absence if we were to hold it on the 11th.

    Now lets all pitch in ideas and aim for a successful GTG on the 18th.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    if i knew Harris was going to Hyderabad on Sunday I would have definitely joined him in my 1965 bug but any way I have marked my calender for November 18th G2G, hopefully will not miss it.

    Another especial thanks to lazeez Haris from my side on bringing his perfect Red Bug for a long journey on such short notice & especially in the days of his exams.
    I truly appreciate his own initiative to take his ride out for joining the rally.

    I also thought of you to join us for the rally as we made such plans to go outside the Karachi which never accomplished.
    That's why I made call on your number several times but unfortunately not responded.

    INSHA ALLAH after our this upcoming G2G we shall definitely have a road trip on our Bugs.
