    I had a great night--I finally got a chance to hear Kathy and learn a little more about CAS. The chef really put some effort into the food which was excellent. Like Jennifer said AVN did a great job of putting this together. I hope you'll consider having something else at Brown's brewing Co. they did a terrific job and btw the beer's not bad either. :)

    This was awesome! Made some new friends too. Will definitely be attending more gatherings. Did anyone catch what kind of dressing was on the salad? I cant stop thinking about it, heh (silly, I know!)

    A room full of wonderful people to enjoy Kathy's words of wisdom, entertainment and inspiration, along with a fine photo show. The staff of Brown's Brewing Co. was SO friendly and eagerly helpful as we set up for Kathy's talk. Thanks to Claire and Sid for a relaxing and delicious evening! Thanks to Dave for asking Kathy to tell the moving story of Lumpy the sheep, posted on the CAS facebook page yesterday.

    The Exit 9 Park-n-ride is on Fire Rd across the street from a little strip mall that has a barber, pizzeria, gas station. Chili's is behind it.

  • Lou K.

    I live off exit 10 in C.P. I can meet you at the exit 9 park-n-ride for the dinner. Sorry for the late reply.

    • Terry D

      Yes! I'll see you at exit 9!

      February 20, 2013

  • Terry D

    This is short notice, but would anyone like to carpool from the Clifton Park area? I can fit 4 others in my car. We can meet at the Exit 9 park-n-ride at 5:30

    February 20, 2013

    • maribeth s.

      Terry I also live in Halfmoon @exit 8 and would alos like to car pool.

      February 20, 2013

    • Terry D

      Great, I'll see you at exit 9!

      February 20, 2013

  • Terry D

    I think to make the carpooling from exit 9 not too complicated, anyone who is interested should meet at the park-n-ride btwn 5:15 and 5:30. If there's more than 5 of us then perhaps there can be another driver. Let's save some energy!

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.
