    The speaker was excellent. Unavoidable technical problems slowed things down a bit.

    I'm looking forward to the Ingersoll rap; he's one of my favorite authors. The rest sounds pretty good too!

    Thanks, Jack, for your reminder that we can do BOTH on "St." Paddy's day--Celebrate being Irish AND celebrate Freedom of Thought! Free the Mind First--& the emotions & body FROM suppressive religion; Then--the Dancing will be FREE-ER!

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.
