  • This location is shown only to members

Please note the new date : 21st April

The Grand Picnic is back!

We did this event for lasts 2 years and everyone just loved it...

On popular demand, I'm proposing doing this for the 4th time.

A bigger, better and bolder Golpapa picnic.

This time more Central in Hyde Park!...and we'll have a bigger picnic too - frisbee, ball games, music everything!!!

If you dont know what is 'Pani Puri' then here is some info -

Pani Puri a.k.a. Gol Gappa is a Indian Street Food - very typical of north and west India. The delicacy is known for its taste as well as the 'mouthfilling' experience of having it In simplest terms it can be explained as semolina balls filled with spicy water.
(look up here for more - http://en.wikipedia.o... )

We don't wish to keep a price tag for the Pani Puri party as its our picnic really - but will appreciate a contribution of £3-£5 each, which should help me to cover direct expenses (and contribute towards the meet up fee). If you cant afford to pay, please speak to me personally.

Location : Hyde Park

Where to meet :
Inside Hyde Park - (Get off at Lancaster Gate Tube Station, enter the park from the gate opposite the station) and walk a 50 meters - there is a fountain. We'll meet there at 4.00 pm.

Weather is looking great today!..but please do bring an extra layer in case you decide to stay longer (and it might be a bit windy later in the day). Looking forward to see you all!

    Hi Anu, is this still on? I had a skating session in the morning in Hyde Park and it's been cancelled due to tightened security for London Marathon ( as per instructions from the Park authorities). If you could update, that would be great as then will plan accordingly. Ta

    Guys, all set for Sunday! Weather is looking great, and it should be great fun!! Please bring all your park games, frisbees, footballs etc. But, one help before that, I need your final confirmations for Sunday (21st April).

    Sometimes people RSVP and then forget to come. However, I need confirmed counts as I don't want to spend money in getting the food and then see it getting wasted. So I need the final confirmed counts!!

    So if you are definitely coming, then please text me with your NAME on[masked] (only text, no calls) with your NAME. Please do so by 20th April 4 pm. Please understand I'll have to buy the stuff - so if you are not coming it will really help if you can change your RSVP to not going.
    AND if you are coming then please do text me. I'll only buy things
    for people who have confirmed to me on text. NO TEXT NO PANIPURI!

    Did you comprehend this sort of weather for its still snowing!
    Then of course theres the April showers.
    Hope it changes or will it be wiser to postpone for May/June?

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.
