    Hi all- I put together a proposal on civic hacking for the Minnesota Rising Unconference next month, because I think that group would be interested in what we're doing in OTC. I would love to hear any suggestions on what information to share about OTC and also I'm trying to figure out how to make the session interactive. You can read the proposal here: (it's the first one)
    I could also use a co-presenter, if anyone is interested!

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.
