  • This location is shown only to members

This is being tossed up to see how many people might be interested in meeting up to watch The Hobbit, before The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is being released to the theatre.

Directions

From 281: Head north on 281 until you are outside 1604.Make the first left (about two miles north of 1604). There are a few turn-arounds coming north on 281, but the first true left is Evans Rd. Go past the first light, and past a stop sign. After the S in the road you will pass Barbara Bush Middle School on the left, and the apartment is a few hundred feet further up the road on the left. If you see a fire station on the right you just past the apartment.

From Stone Oak Pkwy: Come north on Stone Oak Pkwy (outside 1604): Get to the top of the hill (there will be a church on the right). Go down the hill on the other side and take the right at the bottom of the hill onto Evans Rd. Pass one light and the apartment is on the right just after passing a fire station (the fire station is on the left).

Once You Reach the Apartment Complex

When you turn into the property from the street, go through the gate then turn left and find a place to park. DO NOT turn left before the gate as that will take you to the apartment complex next door and you will get lost. If the gate is closed, pull up to the keypad and enter #2125. That will ring Scott's phone, and he can open the gate. Once parked, walk back toward the main area/pool area. The gate their has a lock. Press 2 & 4 at the same time, then press 3, then open the gate. Walk past the pool and head into the the clubhouse. The theater is in the back of the club house.

If you get lost please call Scott ([masked]) or myself [masked]).

Food

Please do bring food and drink. Think maybe chips, soda, sandwiches, fruits/vegetables, maybe pizza at the very most or other normal movie going food. Nothing messy, please, as we'll be in the dark. If you announce you'll  bring plates/bowls/cups, please put it on the list and it'll count as your contribution instead

Understand that at no time can you take food or drinks for the apartment fridge. Whatever is in the room is all that is available to our group. Also, that we need to do a very good job of cleaning up afterwards if we'd like to keep this venue an option in the future.

* Optional: There will be discussed there the option of going out a lunch/dinner nearby once we've finished up with the movies.

    I have The Hobbit on Blu-ray. I'll be happy to bring it along this Saturday!

    • Scott L.

      That would be AWESOME. Thanks Eric!!!!

      November 27, 2013

  • Scott L.

    Does anyone have The Hobbit on Blu-Ray?

    November 26, 2013

  • Scott L.

    Sorry all for the last minute change of date. I got stuck working on the 7th and will be in New Braunfels.

    November 26, 2013

  • Amanda

    Also, does anyone already have this movie on blue ray, who is attending, or should I look into AppleTV or rental copies in high ratio?

    This meetup had to change to this weekend, so please re-evaluate whether you can still make this or can't. We're incredibly sorry but something came up with the hosts and it needed to move to being sooner. I hope we won't miss out on a lot of you being able to attend, but I do understand it is the holiday weekend.

  • Scott L.

    I just got my travel plans for December... and I can host on Dec 7th (Saturday). If you want to avoid the holiday weekend. Either works for me though.

      I could probably go either way myself. Though I wonder what the turn out would be on Thanksgiving weekend. You make the call.

      November 13, 2013

    • Amanda

      I'm cool with December 7th, it'll just mean planning really well for that day for clean-ups and set-ups all around.

      November 14, 2013

  • Amanda

    Scott, leaving this as a draft for you. How is this date, or should it be moved? This is, also, as a note Thanksgiving weekend, so I'll understand if it doesn't, too. But it was the first Saturday before December (and I remember you said the two December first weekends were out, right?).

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.
