    Can we still join the meeting even if we are in the waiting list? I believe some of the folks in the attending list will be absent.

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.
