    just wanted to renew my wish to see data and in general get educated on the situation of homelessness in SF (maybe even organise nights where whoever wants can volunteer). It'd also be great to get a list of on-going projects in that space that we can contribute to.

    Thanks again to everybody that joined us tonight for the discussion, great crowd.

      Hi Spike! Great ideas. Connecting the community with information about homelessness and sharing opportunities to help on existing projects are exactly what we'd like to do with this group. Would love to chat with you about ways you can get more involved! Please message me. - Rose

    Just found out about this. Hate I missed it but hoping to catch the next one. Were any minutes taken or audio/video recorded? Would love to hear a summary of how it went and what progress was made. :)

      indeed, this was great, and for me it brought up again the question of what's the background a lot of these people have especially in connection with the comment in the article about the makers movement.

    It was great to meet everybody, definitely lots of potential in the room, hopefully we can quickly come up with some action items and follow through without losing the momentum I felt tonight.

    In the first announcement about this meetup, it said that in addition to the tour and the talk, there would be an open mike. The latest emails have not mentioned the "open mike". I certainly would like to hear what people coming to the meeting are thinking. Please let me know. Thanks, Jon

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.
