IMPORTANT INFO: *We will have free condoms at our table - courtesy of Planned Parenthood. PLEASE BE SURE THAT ONLY THOSE WHO ARE OF AGE OF CONSENT ARE ALLOWED TO TAKE CONDOMS. Rhode Island’s age of consent: 16 years old.

Please feel free to volunteer for tabling and/or sign up as a contact person by commenting on Debbie's post below. If you view this information in our *secret* Facebook group this information may look different - but...it's all the same.

1. PRIDE provides 2 chairs & 1 table.
If you wish to bring your own chair please be sure that it doesn’t obstruct the view and/or performance of our table (i.e. face painting). Face Painting courtesy of Sarah Beth & Michelle Flitman

2. Unless anyone objects the maximum number of people under our “tent” should be limited to 3-4 people “tabling” and 2 people face painting. If space permits than others can hang out under the tent - but for sure ALL are welcome in front of, or beside the
table.

3. It gets hot. So please be sure to bring cold drinks. Food, snacks, etc are also welcome at our table. :-) *We* can get pretty hungry!

4. All time frames are flexible. Please note if you will come late or leave early. Remember you are free to walk around the festival if there is any down time during your tabling time.

5. Attire - where your PRIDE - any way you like! 



6. How to sign up? Just comment below with details. Debbie will merge the sign-up's from Meet Up and Facebook so we will know who we can expect to help out.

    Hey, folks....we are short-handed this year and could really use some bodies to walk in the parade! It's a fun time, I promise! We're also a bit light in the mid afternoon for table help. The 2:30-4:00 slot. Thanks if you can help!

    Hi Debbie, I'm available from 1:00 to 2:30. I want to help but you find that you are overwhelmed with volunteers for this slot, please let me know and I'll make myself useful some place else. Sorry to hear that you're still not feeling well. Susan

    Sorry I'm late with this. Please accept my apologies - I'm usually on time with items that should meet deadlines. But I'm still not feeling well - and it's taking me longer than expected to get "my game on". Meet Up will only permit me to use 1000 characters in one post - so this Sign Up/General Info will be broken down in several comments.

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.
