      Huh! I can't figure it out either, I was looking up Disappointment State Park and it seems to be on the coast next to Oregon, did you mean Deception Pass. There are also other parks on Whidbey, I'm just confused?

    Wendy, let's wait until Sat to see what the weather brings. If it is raining, I am for rescheduling. If it is cloudy but not raining, I would still go.

    I think we should see what forecast says on Saturday re: Sunday. With 50% chance of rain, it might be best to postpone it until the following weekend. There's showers and then there's RAIN.

  • Wendy K.

    The weather forecast is not good for Sunday, things can change lets hope for sun. what do you all think?

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.
