    Horrible parking, vultures at the food table pushing and shoving, had to scream to talk to my friend that met me there, never met up with the group, but I love the art at the Phillips. Good music too but live music is not conducive to meeting people. I love art but this event was not for me. Hope to meet folks from the group some at another event.

    I hope next time we can all meet together at some point. This was not exactly an event that made that possible.

    It was a lot of fun Too bad some people couldn't find the others. We were mostly in front of the café.

      Brad and I had a great time. We got there late (parking was horrendous) and didn't see anyone from the group but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. Thanks for setting this up, Victoria.

    The time on my confirmation ticket is 5 pm, not 6:30. Does anyone know why? I haven't gone to any of these events before and am really looking forward to it!

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.
