    I thought it was great fun... until I bounced off the mat!!
    Yes, I'm gonna be quite stiff for a few days, but nothing major... (thanks for asking, R-M!!)

    This was a really fun event - a GREAT idea (though my personal thoughts on the venue suggests they need to provide a little more guidance & safety considerations, one does what one can, and TRIES to do what one can't - and that's why I landed on my a&&!! :> )

    It was a good group that showed up - I'd like to catch up with y'all another time...

    As the instructor offered the passes, why not try & make another event of it as discussed?
    Looks on the website like they offer circus, acrobatic & contortion classes - truthfully, though, I suspect most 'regular' people aren't in good enough shape (flexibility!) to take contortion training (but might be fun to simply observe!), but some acrobatics could be interesting, and another Circus class would be fine - now I have an appreciation for it, would try & expand my repertoire...

    The hour went by so quickly. It was a lot of fun. I hope David is feeling ok after his fall though. I was surprised there weren't any waiver forms. I'm glad we did the group spotting thing for some of those activities.

    My hamstrings are soooooooooooo sore!

    This was a great event, easy to get to, reasonably priced, fun but also challenging.

    This was really a whole lot of fun. I was able to practice some skills I already had as well as I was able to learn some new ones. I have way more appreciation for circus performers now.

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.
