    I am looking forward to this Photowalk as I am heading to Vegas soon and am NOT experienced in taking photos of lights and glitter.

    The majority of Society say CHRISTmas not xmas, out of respect for those who respect Christmas.

      As a past professor of religious studies, I recognize that not everyone is a Christian. Use of the term Xmas intends no disrespect, it merely is a neutral term.

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.
