It's once in a year opportunity for all off-roaders in UAE to meet and sit in one place to enjoy Great Grand Iftar together. It's being held in coordination with all off-road clubs and approx 400-500 cars shows up every year in Iftar bowl near Tawi Rafadah in Bidayar area.

Whether you are fasting or not, it's a must drive to attend to watch the union of off-roaders and witness the love and respect that everyone share in this small world. I have attended this twice in the past and always enjoyed meeting some of my old off-road friends and making new friends.

Plan is to start from Tawi Nizwa area and follow the fence toward end of the track and then head to Iftar bowl. Considering the fasting time, first 9-10 kms is simple plain desert track next to fence. And then last 2-3 kms is good playable area in rolling dunes just before we reach iftar bowl. After the Iftar we might go for a quick spin in that same or closer area depending on everyone's availability and exit.

Great initiative @Gaurav bhai, I am also in. Last year we stood tall on Iftaar Bowl to around 200-250 cars which swamped the area and joined everybody down for Iftaar as time came close to open fast. Hope to repeat the same feet this time around.

Good to see @skumar83 is the first to sign up.
