Happy Holi-Brays Get-Together

  • November 23, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The holidays are fast approaching and the herd is already getting restless with that holi-bray spirit!   They're looking forward to meeting some new members and going for a walk decked out in their holiday attire.   If you'd like to get a holiday picture of you and your favorite donk, this event would be a great time.  Feel free to use my stocking caps and/or reindeer antlers or bring your own decorations.  (hats will need to be slitted here to fit over the ears).   And, for the short-ear members, we'll have hot chocolate, egg nog and a camp fire to hang out around.

If you're a new member, this event qualifies as an orientation session and will be a good time to meet the herd.  They really enjoy the cooler temperatures. The orientation will start at 1pm.   But, for those who don't need the orientation, feel free to drop by anytime after 1pm for some holiday cheer.   

Hope to see new and old faces!

    Thanks for another great Get-Together Steve!!! As usual, we had such a good time!
    The little four-legged members were so cute with their hats! And the 2-legged members were just as friendly and dynamic as usual. What a great group! It's gonna be hard to have to wait until spring for more donkey time...
    Happy Holi-brays! :)

    It's always fun to hang out with Steve and the donkeys. They were adorable all decked out in their festive hats. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting old and making new friends. So glad the weather cooperated, but the camp fire and hot drinks were very much appreciated! Thanks again to Steve for all his hard work and dedication.

      Sounds like you need a fast and furious car too to match your personality! Sorry to hear you won't be making it. :-( We'll miss you. But thank you for all that rain dancing you did, they're predicting sun now!

      November 22, 2013

      Sorry to hear you won't be able to make it Georgianna. :-( Rosita did a rain dance and all to make sure we had nice weather. Thanks for letting us know. Hope you'll be able to make it another time soon!

  • NATHALIE

    Hi Steve- Not sure yet if we can make it Saturday but I just wanted to ask if you would mind if we brought our toy poodle with us. We would carry her, wrapped in her blanket.. so no interaction with the donkeys.
    Anyway, I thought I would ask :)

    November 19, 2013

    • Steve S.

      That should be fine. Hope you can make it.

      November 19, 2013

    • NATHALIE

      Yes! We'll be there Saturday!
      Do we bring anything?
      If the weather guy is right about the temperature dropping, I hope the camp fire will be roaring!!! :)

      November 21, 2013

  • chrissy

    Hi Steve, i am pretty sure i will be able to make it this sat.

    November 20, 2013

  • Marge B.

    I should have brought them back some "island" hats with braids - OMG, that would have been sooooo cute!!! I'll have to put that on my list for next time!! :) Had a great time in the Caribbean - after that, it's hard to think the holidays are almost here -- maybe some Christmas donkeys will help me get in the mood!! See you soon!

    November 19, 2013

    • Genny

      So true. This year it started right after Halloween.

      November 19, 2013

    • Marge B.

      Actually Kohls had Xmas decorations up the end of September!! I almost choked when I saw them!! No wonder, by December, we all hate the holidays!! Hope by Saturday the weather changes for the better!

  • Liz

    Hi Steve! I'm new to the group and have wanted to meet your donkeys for awhile now! My husband and I will come for the orientation. Anything we need to know beforehand? Thanks!

    November 20, 2013

    • Steve S.

      Hi Liz: Nothing you need to do beforehand unless you have some ability to change the weather forecast to sunny! Right now, the forecast is calling for a cold, rainy day. :-( Bray for sun! :-)

      November 20, 2013

    • Rosita C.

      OH no! 60% chance is almost positive is going to rain. We need a change in the wind, move the storm to Florida....Nobody likes wet devil eggs :) and I plan to make them. Do you know any dance to keep the rain away?

      November 20, 2013

  • Laura

    So sorry to miss this one! Busy with the end of the semester and lots of work! They are SO cute with their Santa hats! Hope to see you all soon.

    November 18, 2013

    • Steve S.

      That's not acceptable! Work over donkeys! My God, where are your priorities! :-) I'm teasing, of course. I'm pretty sure, like me, you feel a bad day with the donkeys is still better than a good day at work. :-)

  • Natalie

    I'm so disappointed! I have to be out of town next weekend but I would love to bring my 5 yo grandson to meet the donkeys. He will be here TG weekend. Would it be possible?

    November 17, 2013

    • Steve S.

      Hi Natalie. Sure, no problem. Just send me a message and let me know when you'd like to stop by. We have the trail walk on Sunday, Dec 1, but I should be able to find some time other than that day.

      November 18, 2013

  • Kathryn P.

    Tell the donkeys I'd like to be there but will be at a conference,

    November 17, 2013

    • Steve S.

      Hi Kathryn: Sorry to hear it. You're always welcome any other time. They're particularly fluffy and cute this time of year. :-)

      November 18, 2013

  • Rosita C.

    Can you start a new list of needs for the 23rd or are you going to cook for all of us. I am thinking i might do a vegetarian chilli...

    November 16, 2013

    • Steve S.

      Hi Rosita... no need to bring any food for this... I was planning on keeping it simple. The holidays can be a busy time for a lot of people, so I'll be happy if people just show up and we can a chance to socialize before the end of the year. I'll have some hot drinks for people but not expecting anything more than that.

      November 16, 2013

    • Rosita C.

      OK, sounds good!!!

      November 16, 2013

  • Lucy M.

    I would love to attend until 3 pm.

    November 16, 2013

    • Steve S.

      Hi Lucy, 1-3pm is perfect for getting to know the donkeys. That's what I usually schedule for orientation sessions for new members. See you then.

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.
