Party at Bob's New Digs (Bedford)

  • This location is shown only to members

As many of us know, Bob just bought and moved into a new home in Bedford. He is doing a house party/cook out for his friends in the ROSC, Central Virginia Adventures Meetup, and Star City Dining Enthusiasts :-)

From Bob: "The grill is ready to roll in no time. Please bring a side dish or dessert. I'll take care of meat for the grill. Please let me know if you if you prefer chicken or beef for the grill. And please let me know by May 7 so I have time to get things together. I'll also have beer, sodas and water.....
I do have chairs. But still if a couple of people brought lawn chairs it's helpful."

His address is listed below and masked for members only. When you RSVP, please respond with your preference: chicken or beef, and what you're bringing. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks so much for making the housewarming party really fabulous!

    I also appreciate the gifts and the energy put behind karaoke.

    Thanks for the help and patience in dealing with the last minute change to the garage.

    Its nice to have so many great friends so shortly after moving to town!

    Good learning experience. Things will go more smoothly for the next party. Meat off the grill sooner, etc. Onward and upward from here...

    I'm still blown away by Bob's kindness in inviting us to his great new house and then providing us with that much chicken, steak, and beer. Very cool. On a side note, we should all practice our karaoke skills so that boy isn't so disappointed in us next time :-)

    My fruit turned into a fruit tart and I'm making rice krispy treats. My son has an afternoon game in Forest, so may be a little late.

    Hi All,

    So far a great reaction to the invites. We have some great contributions for entertainment as well; Karaoke (Martha and John), Corn Hole (Mike) and Horse Shoes and Ring Toss (Michelle). I'm really looking forward to it!

    Excited abut many of the deserts AND side dishes I have seen so far! As far as I can tell we have a good balance of deserts and sides so still a lot of flexibility there.

    Now channel all of your vibes into good weather Saturday!

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.
