    So here's the scoop, Vineet! We meet @ St. Thomas church in McLean VA. The original post on Meetup has the address and directions. We'll be in the Social Hall, so follow the directions posted and follow the crowd. You can't get lost, the windows are big and the lights will be one. You missed 1 class, so not a big deal. You can catch up. I'll arrange for an extra drum for you. Risk of snow tomorrow! Please email me directly off line at [masked] to get on our mailing list to receive updates and instructions about cancellation, if it comes to that. Cheers, David

    Thanks for your reply David. A few other questions. Where exactly do you meet (I saw "the activity room" but I wasn't sure what building/address/location we are talking about there). Also, is it okay that I will have missed the first few sessions? Thirdly, if I come, yes, I would need a djembe as I currently do not own one...

    Hello...does one need to own a djembe to attend these sessions?

      Hey, Vineet. Nope. You do not need to own a djembe, but it helps if you want to practice between sessions. I usually bring some extra drums, and so does the instructor, Kofi Dennis. Please let us know if you need one, and we can plan accordingly.

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.
