Awesome is the word - Second bloggers meeting

We wanted to carry out outdoor activities among bloggers and friends and oh yeah we did it yesterday on the 11th July 2009, which is going to be a truly memorable day to me. You might notice the word "awesome" a lot in this post, 'cause that's really the word that can truly describe the day.

First off, the event would not have been awesome without the people who were present yesterday.
So a really big thanks to all the dudettes and dudes who made it there! It was simply great! I really spent an awesome time and the day was full of laughter and great memories!

Then there were the awesome activities that kept us having fun:

The pierced bottle game

The flying Disc

I keep laughing at the funny faces and postures people made when sending and trying to catch the discs! Those were beautifully caught on the various shots!


Reena and her husband were experts at this for playing it almost everyday. Saajid kept forgetting his turn but he made us listen to some awesome Metallica while playing uno. Hehe... Sun almost always had the heavy cards at the end of a round and I could see all of Jev's card throughout the game! Haha!

The treasure hunt

The treasure hunt is my pride 'cause I organised 50% of it. (The treasure hunt clues have been blogged about by not-jevin).
Some notable moments of the treasure hunt were when Sun dipped into the water to fetch the second clue.

Then Dakshinee got the third one by digging the sand.

Saajid and Ashesh could have got the fourth clue right from the start when they found its hideout but they discarded it thinking that it was a dalpuri wrap in a plastic bag.

Finally, after a palpitating hunt, Sun and Yashvin's team won the treasure chest.

Reena and her husband won some cookies, the consolation prize for having been so close to finding the chest and they shared it among all of us.
As per Reena, the cookies were more useful to her than a domain name, the first prize. LOL. I made the cookies by the way.


The handprints banner

Reena really showed great talent in doing the wordings for this banner! And we all showed our great talent by placing our hand prints on the banner! It was an awesome water-color moment.

On the overall the day was, yeah you've guessed the word, AWESOME!! I've made some new friends and I'm really happy we all bonded so well despite being complete strangers some months ago.

So the big question now is: Where and When is the next bloggers meeting?
