    Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been very communicative lately. My daughter has been ill the last few weeks andwas sbeen admitted to hospital the early hours of this morning. Apologies for those who were waiting for info, but as I'm sure you can appreciate, my priorities were with my family. I hope everyone has a good time tonight and I hope to meet you in due course.

    hi all just back from weymouth thanks for those who attended, sorry you could not make it carol hope all is well at home .
    after discussion the meeting place was always the "old rooms " as suggested by carol who knows the area better than me i only mentioned the "red lion" as a possible it was never shown on the thread as a meet up place, hope this clears up any misunderstanding
    hope you guys manage to sort out a meet up group in the weymouth area and who know next year i might come as a guest when im at the festival

    OK start again I was in the Old Rooms in, 20 minutes to late but looking forward to meet new people of this group but no one there and not even a message at the bar where they had gone to. Why does this have to go wrong? I walked 12 miles on Portland today and had to cycle 4 miles to get at the Old Rooms. Alison was right pretty confusing and another night waisted.
    I was at the top of the list that I would come. Peter

    Peter I cancelled . I think the host did too. There was talk of another pub, perhaps there were too many people not able to make it and too much discussion of different places

    May 29

  • Alison B.

    I am pretty confused about where this meetup is taking place? Isn't it at old rooms ? Or red lion?

    May 29

  • geoff c.

    hi Steve it was Carols idea to meet at the Old Rooms i thought about the Red Lion as it said on the gig guide live music was on but when i phoned they said they didnt have live music there although i saw a band there last year

    Carol has not been in the thread since she suggested the venue
    There are a couple of pubs with live music on Sailors Return/Golden Lion
    its a case of play it by ear on the evening

    May 29

  • Steve D.

    What band are playing?

    May 29

  • Alison B.

    See you there :)

    hi carol , sounds good to me , i dont know the pub but sure i can find it i hope we can get some response as time is getting short

    do you want to add the location to the thread ?

    May 24

  • Carol

    Hi, sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm suggesting to meet at The Old Rooms pub which is on the harbour side not far from Brewers Quay and Hope Square around 8pm. It's a large pub but has a separate room near the back. It's going to be busy everywhere, maybe we can move on after meeting there.
    Geoff- The Sailors Return will have music but is a very small pub, people get crammed in like sardines, but they have some great bands on. So perhaps go on there?

    May 24

  • Carol

    Hi All
    Further to mine and Geoff's conversation below..........how is everyone for meeting around 8pm for the rest of the evening? Or would you prefer earlier for the music in Hope Square? Please can people let Geoff and I know so we can come up with a plan. Thankyou!

    May 16, 2014

  • geoff c.

    hi all , i dont know weymouth but looked on the gig guide live music on at red lion in hope square any comments on the venue ?

    May 14, 2014

    • Carol

      Hi Geoff, it's lovely there, but gets packed!!

      May 15, 2014

  • Carol

    what about meeting at The Old Rooms pub which is the other side of the harbour and walking over to where the music is once we've all met? It'll be really busy everywhere, and might make it just a bit easier to spot the meet group. I can give out exact adress/details if everyone thinks this is a good idea.

    May 2, 2014

  • Carol

    Any suggestions for where to meet?

    May 2, 2014

  • Carol

    Looking forward to seeing everyone and having a great time.x

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.
