    Terrific night of great socializing and great food. I enjoyed seeing everyone, especially Jack and his love, Dianne. Sorry I could not stay longer to dance the night away but 6:00 a.m. comes very early for folks like me. Sandy - thank you for organizing such a lovely event. It is obvious you put a lot of time and effort into the night! Photos to follow.

    i got all ready and drove down there...and when i saw how far i'd have to walk from the great parking spot i got (next to that tourist shop across from Hellas) i got back in the car. I'm disabled, i walk with a cane. Some days are better than others. But i was pretty weak today. I'm so disappointed, i had been so looking forward to this. :(

    My friend just cancelled on me, so i'll be going solo. This is my first Young at Heart meetup, hope you folks are a friendly group!

      We are - look forward to meeting you tonight.

    I'm coming from Hudson if anyone would like to carch a ride or carpool.

    If possible, please bring cash to pay for dinner, etc. Our group has gone to this event several times in the past and had a great time. And the food is great. But when it comes time to pay, they have been a bit slow, disorganized, and may not split the checks, or split them correctly. If you want to pay with a card, that is fine. But I just wanted everyone to know that cash (with some smaller bills) is really a better option for this event. If you like desserts, several of the restaurants have a fantastic selection - Hella's in particular.

    I don't want to jinx it, but so far the weather is looking great for Saturday. See you there!!

    I have 5 in my car now, We're meeting at Citrus Park Mall at 4:15 and go from there. I have to go early because I'm hosting. We can have more than one car from Carrollwood if needed.

    October 1, 2013

    • Joann

      Where at the mall and what car will you be driving?

      October 1, 2013

  • Carol H.

    Sorry unable to attend. See you at the picnic!

    October 1, 2013

  • SandyW

    Be aware that this is an outdoor event. I'll be keeping an eye on the weather. If weather should turn bad, I will cancel. But not until Saturday around 2pm. Weather shifts easily, so I'll wait until we're quite sure one way or the other.

    October 1, 2013

  • SandyW

    If you are interested in car pooling, please post you area to see if someone else is in your area, or on your way.

    October 1, 2013

  • SandyW

    I'll be driving from Carrollwood, but will be leaving a little early because I'm hosting the event. You are welcome to ride with me.

      As long as you don't mind 5 in a small car, it's fine.

    Is there someone going from Tampa that I could drive with. I can get lost returning from Tarpon during the day, no less at night.
    I live close to downtown, but could meet somewhere convenient.
    Thanks,

    Hi Kathy,
    I found a hotel for $54.00 out the door-Quality Hotel. I'm not sure where it is located but it's a good rate. Please let me know the rate of the hotel you have made reservations with if its about the same or better I'll take one of the rooms you have. Breakfast sounds great.
    Thank you,

    i have a question, this is like a street party in tarpon? what does it mean to have a restaurant added later? are we all going to reconvene at a restaurant or will local restaurants be serving tables outdoors?

    September 18, 2013

    • SandyW

      Yes, this is a street party. Restaurants set up tables along the water in front of the band. I'll post one of the restaurants names in about a week.

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.
