      Thank you, Kristal! You know how people say, "I'll be with you in spirit", in order to be supportive? Well, I will really be with you all in spirit! Every demo will be on my mind and all of you there will be in my heart! Please Y'all, share your comments so I can know how they went. You will send lots of people home looking at circuses differently! :-)

      Hi Peach, signs and leaflets will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Make them to the point, kid friendly, and easy to read from a bit of a distance, since people are usually not really close to the area where we stand. Thank you so much for helping our animal friends!

      Hi Asha, we will be in the front between the entry door and the corner. Thank you for being there! Dear Tommasina, I will only be at opening night this year. I'm sad to miss being there with everyone and to miss seeing you. Thank you so much for bringing folks down for Ft Collins! I'll be there with you all in spirit, and I'm so grateful to know that our great group will be out there for the innocent animal prisoners! Thank you ALL so much!! xoxo

    Does anyone know if the parking situation is still the same as last year, i.e., that we can still park in the general visitors' lot for free?

    People don't know what they don't know. That is the reason we do these demos. Not to yell and be mean to circus goers or confront people, but to educate. Many people care about animals, but years of lies from circus bullies, has fooled many people. They fooled me! If no one is outside speaking for te animals, people will go in with no thought about the animals. That is why we are there. Not to ruin anyone's fun, but to bring it to the attention of those thoughtful people who don't know. Thank you with all my heart to our organizers and members who will be out there for te animals when they can! Need reasons for your family and friends to not support the circus, or reasons to help at the demos: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AAf1AKj-izY&feature=related

    I want to attend as many demos as I can, and will be bringing as many people as I can that are willing to go. I hope we can show Ringling that their cruelty isn't welcome here, or anywhere!

    You have so little time in this life. It's not worth spending any of it on the things that don't fulfill your highest purpose. You know what that is. It's that feeling inside of you that makes you feel so excited that you can't contain it, and when it's expressed you feel a kind of energy that's difficult to reproduce in any other way. When you claim it, a shift happens and you can never go back to the way you once were. Stop thinking, start doing!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
