April Meetup: Philomena

Philomena is last year's Best Picture nominee that people were least likely to have watched.  Which is a shame since it's very good.

A world-weary political journalist picks up the story of a woman's search for her son, who was taken away from her decades ago after she became pregnant and was forced to live in a convent.

As always, dinner will be catered in, so please bring $10 for that as well as a snack or a beverage to share. It's only $5 to attend if you opt out of dinner. 

PARKING AND THE ENTRANCE IS TO THE REAR OF THE BUILDING.

Please respect the RSVP as we need an accurate head count for food. If you find later that you can't make it, there is usually a waiting list, so please be kind enough to change you RSVP to make room for someone else and also keep our catering planning accurate. Thanks!

However Adam (the other one) and company did a great job hosting and running the show. As usual I had a great evening. Thank you all, I really am grateful for this group of people.

    I am such a dork. Must have confused directions to another place on the same paper. Just noted the correct address. DUH.

    K, I just tried to find it- went down Sunland to SFRd, turned left (as per my directions I wrote down), and it was supposed to be about 1.5 miles down. Nope... So I went back to Int/scn of Sunland and SFRd, turned Right (in case I got it wrong), and drove for miles until I got close to 11305. That address wasn't there. The numbers kept going up (for miles)... and all of a sudden, they jumped to 11333. I MUST have gotten something wrong. Too late now to make it, but wanted you to know I tried and didn't blow you off. So sorry to miss it. Bummer Saturday night for me. :-(

    Hi Crazy Kids, due to WonderCon this weekend, I will be absent, and Meg will be doing the food ordering and money collecting. Please be kind to her and thoughtful of others, and don't change your RSVP any later than you have to- preferably no later than Friday. Also, if you don't plan to eat with us, leave a comment below and just bring 5$ instead of 10$. Thanks!!! Have a great meet up :)))

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.
