    Eventbrite registration was not required when I registered about a week ago, too bad that I am really looking forward to it now it seems my registration with the meetup is not valid ...

    • Kay K.

      Danged return key. If this is the model going forward, can you make it clear in the initial announcement that an Eventbrite link will be forthcoming? I'm registered for the 9/10 meetup, which currently has no Eventbrite link. Should I be watching out for one?

      July 31, 2013

    • Derek A.

      I am indeed sorry for the confusion and miscommunication. We will do better going forward. I understand what you're saying now. It is true that if you signed up and just auto-RSVP to all our events you will not see eventbrite or a ticket link. As soon as we announce the speaker we always include that. I've done 50+ events myself, and unfortunately Meetup is not the most reliable ticketing platform and the communication is scattered. DA

    Was sad to be turned away at the door. Despite having a ticket, security refused any more people into the event at 715p. Was the event recorded? would be great to hear the talk and Q&A in some manner.

    August 1, 2013

    • Derek A.

      Very sorry to hear this. The room was so packed. Yes the video will be online shortly.

    I registered for this so long ago, how do I tell if I have an Eventbrite ticket? The need for a ticket is a surprise to me. Was the Eventbrite ticket required from the time the meetup was first posted?

    • Derek A.

      We have given a Waitlist ticket for anyone that signed up for one in the last 48-hours to receive a seat for an overflow room. If you didn't then you will not get one and will not receive admittance. Please please book your tickets in advance. We sell out most of these events. Derek

    Eventbrite reg page lists Bldg GWC2 and this Meetup page lists Bldg 40 as location. Which is the right one? Recommend updating the wrong one. :-)

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.
