THE HO-OH-NO HOLLY DAZE PLANNED FUN 

❅ WALMART ? GIFT EXCHANGE aka Recycle, Re-use, and Reduce that trash erm... I mean TREASURE hidden in your closets and under your bed! Time tο unload those unwanted “gifts” that are collecting dust in your closet since you're too embarrassed to unload them back onto your friends, family, or even Goodwill! Like that famous fruitcake which has made it's way around back to you! Yesterday's fruitcake can be repurposed to be today's beautiful paper weight or as a weapon in case of unwanted intruders - no, we don't mean your family visiting for the holidays! Gifts can be bought new but not costing more than 10 big ones, yes, that's $10.00! 

❅ SANTA’S CONFESSIONAL Have you been naughty or nice? Santa knows! Find out if you'll receive a bag of coal or a wonderful *cough* regifted treasure!
❅ FRUGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER CONTEST Grab your best OMG-MY-EYES- ARE BLEEDING ugly Christmas Sweater. YES, CHRISTMAS! When was the last time you saw a Hannukah sweater or Qwanza? Don't have one? Grab any old sweater and decorate it yourself with a hot glue gun, a box of cast off ornaments, and a bottle of spiked egg nog to enhance your creative side. Oooo sparkly! Then dress in as much tacky holiday accessories your credit card can stand to win big! Oh yes, there will be prizes!

❅ FRUGLY ORNAMENT CONTEST Remember one person's frugly is another person's beautiful! Who can beat Cynthia's "Chestnuts Roasting on An Open Fire?" ornament? Bring it, to win it and hang it on the a REAL frugly Christmas tree!

❅ REINDEER GAMES Improv, Sing Alongs, Karaoke, Wii Rock Band, Board Games. Bring your fave game (and ear plugs)!

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.
