Cloisters Exploration and Picnic!

Let's explore The Cloisters and enjoy the fresh, spring air! I haven't picked a date yet as I will be waiting until the weather gets warmer to schedule. I encourage everyone to bring a small something to share whether it be cheese, crackers, plates, utensils or something sweet. Also, feel free to bring your favorite board or card game with you. I highly recommend that you either meet us at the train station in Astoria or in Washington Heights but not at Cloisters. Since this is my first time there, I won't easily be able to navigate lost souls to where we will be.

    Because of the weather I'm going to wait a bit and then head up there if the sun comes out. Hope to see you for a couple hours at least (must leave at 4).

    Three of us are here waiting at the Broadway Station stop. We'll wait until 11:00 before heading out. Are there people who're gonna.meet us there for sure?

    Just saw the weather report for tomorrow and there's a 30% chance for showers in the morning but then the rest of the day it should be fine. So just remember to bring an umbrella for the morning commute. :-)

    Sorry, I didn't realize I had reserved for this. I have an appointment during this time. Hope to make the next one. So Sorry.

    If 10:30 is too early for some people to meet then you're more than welcome to get there on your own. I'll post once we get there and set up a spot to eat. From Astoria it takes close to 1.5 hrs by train so if you want to skip the picnic lunch and come later then just let us know. People can always join up with the group as we're walking around.

    I most definitely will not be able to get up and ready by 10:30.. :-/ But I hope you end up doing something after, so I can join.

    Hi! I think I will attend. But this will be my first time with the group. Are there any other newbies attending?

    August 2, 2013

    • Beau

      There are always a bunch of newbies. Always.

    Hi Em, will we be meeting outside the train station?

    July 29, 2013

    • Em

      Yes let's meet at 10:30am at the corner of Broadway and 31st just outside of the train station in front of Daly's pub. Again, if anyone has any problems call my cell:[masked]

      1 · July 29, 2013

  • Em

    Let's meet at Broadway Station at 10:30am. Thanks for asking!

    July 29, 2013

  • Michael

    What time should we meet at the Broadway station? :)

    July 29, 2013

  • Em

    ***SORRY THIS WAS ACCIDENTALLY POSTED IN ANOTHER GROUP MEMBER'S PROFILE EARLIER***

    Hey guys, so just a slight change from the original post. I think it would be easier to meet at the Broadway NQ station (at 31st) since it's more central. Those who don't want to meet beforehand can just meet us by the park entrance at the set time. I'll post our exact whereabouts that morning. Once again, you can reach me on my cell at[masked]-3294.

    Regarding food, everyone should bring a paper bag lunch and we can pick a spot in the park to eat before we walk around. I'll bring a large blanket but if others want to bring one as well that would be helpful. See you next weekend!!
    Em :-)

      1 · July 17, 2013

    • stephen

      You can't add for just one event. Emily can removed as organizer after the event. Or you can leave as a co-organizer

      July 18, 2013

  • Em

    OK, so this will be on Saturday, August 8th, say from Noon-4:00pm. Once I'm able to I'll change it officially. :-)

      Is this August 3rd? Aug 8th is a Thursday.

      July 15, 2013

    • Kerry D

      I'm confused...if its August 8th I can host. If its the 3rd, I can't. Which is it?

      July 15, 2013

      Kerry, can you make me an organizer just for this one so I can post the 8/3 date? I'm happy to host this one in your absence. Let me know, thanks! :-)

      July 14, 2013

    • Kerry D

      Yeah sure!

      1 · July 15, 2013

    Hey organizers and everyone else: Would Sat., Aug. 3rd, work for this? Can we officially change/add the date?

    There is a unicorn exhibit running until Aug. 18. We should try and set something up before then because who doesn't want to see a unicorn?!

    So far it looks good for both me and Ann Mercier. She has a plus one which is meant for me and I RSVP'd too which will throw off your count by one too many. Sorry for any confusion.

    Please give directions there so that a directionally challenged person like myself will know how to get there. If possible, please use landmarks instead of saying East on this street and North on this avenue when giving directions to a place I have never been too.

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.
