    I really enjoyed my first GF event today. I felt so much better to meet people who are GF like me. A simple thing like getting a business card with an email address was wonderful! Thank you for the time and effort to put this event together. I can only imagine the hard work that went into it. It was very much appreciated. Thank you for showing me that GF can be enjoyed and fulfilling.

    Oh my goodness, the event was so wonderful!!! All of the vendors were so nice and generous (I have the most wonderful goodie bag!), and all of the effort that everyone put into this was definitely apparent. I wish I could have stayed longer than an hour to chat with more people, but I am so looking forward to next year! Best gluten free event that I've been to! Thank you!!!

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.
