    I was extremely impressed with the event, especially that their legal paperwork did not require people to sign over their IP right.

      Likewise. I'll be heading down 495 from Marlborough. I'd be happy to pick someone up if you're on the way. Text:[masked]

    Hey folks - how is everybody getting to RI? I was thinking about driving down. We should organize transportation since it looks like we won't hit the 20.

      So I have a weird situation in that I am driving from Worcester and won't be there until 3pm or so and have to go back to Worcester Saturday night as well due to having to work on Sunday. That said, I would love to sit in on teams and contribute whatever I can!

      Sooo, haven't heard from most of the people that are coming. Gene's meeting me at my place at 6.30 and Jack will be coming with us as well. Feel free to give me a ring[masked] if you want to catch a ride as well. Sam, are you ok with posting a number that can be called for an emergency pickup? I know Karina needs a ride, but wasn't able to reach her myself.

    I am being told the promo code IndiesGame is not valid on EventBrite. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Aerjen

      Well, then I made a spelling error :) Does it work now?

      August 15, 2013

    • Brian L.

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.
