    I'll be there, but a little late! My car was rear-ended this week and we're picking it up from the shop at 9!!!

    Lydia, I have been meaning to bring the WEEKDAY sketchers to that area for a long time, but never got the logistics worked out. I know it is familiar territory for you and am DELIGHTED you have picked it.

    i thought it would be cool to meet in the new "No Cars Allowed" section of the Prado.

      That would be a great idea MIke! I have drawn there several times with the San Diego Sketchcrawlers weekday group (Rachel kopel) that's why I chose a location a little different this time.

    Wish I could and I will definitely try to make future events. However that Saturday is our Pancake Breakfast fundraiser for our new Art Center at Jojoba Hills. If you guys weren't meeting up, we'd love to have you join us. Have fun!

    if you walk down the trail a bit north or south side you get a great view of the cabrilio bridge close up with the big arches.

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.
