    1. Shall finalise the date and time by this weekend.
      I think we should plan to meet over lunch so that those coming in from outstation can do the travelling at night. As of now as there are two who are not available on 29 Jun I think we should settle for lunch on 06 Jul.
      What are the views of the others?

  18. Col Gopinath, I am so sorry I will be unable to come as I will be in Bangalore from 3rd July to 12th July. I live in Pondicherry and it would have been so easy to come to Chennai.... Please do take pictures and post them. Wishing all the Crossword Enthusiasts a great time at the "Sloggers and Setters " meet.

  24. A late notification perhaps, but may be of help: The name of the hall where we are having the social is called 'Platinum Point'. As you enter the club, it is immediately to your left, at one end of the front lawn, fairly close to the gate itself
