The purpose is to encourage girls in STEM and hands-on making. There will be a tour, demonstrations, and a project that the girls can take home. Allow at least two hours for this event.

2.  Girls only tools orientation/build session.

3. Arrive at N. Reston Home Depot at  8:45am. Event ends approx. 11.

4.  Parent drop off only.   Only RSVP for the # of students. There will be chaperones as well as Home Depot staffers. 

5. RSVP the # of girls, do not include parents since this is a drop-off event per request of Home Depot.

    Please note that this is a gilrs-only event. Also please do not RSVP the parents. These requests are based on HD and the sponsor/funding for the event.

    Thanks I will clarify that. They requested limited chaperones so we are asking the parents to drop off. They can shop or get coffee. Hmm. Maybe we should make a list of parent phone numbers and also give you guys a cell phone now that you have me thinking.

    Hi Jennyfer, it's a little unclear as to whether it's intended to be drop-off only or if it's preferred/expected that a parent stays? I just want to RSVP for the right number of people, but it's only 1 child.

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.
