    Unfortunately I am unable to attend this meeting. Will be giving a presentation on Managing Training Programs to an ASTD study group. I hope to infuse Agile.Scrum practices. Is there interest in this topic within this group?

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.
