    I had a great time. Intelligent, witty and funny people with a sick and morbid sense of humor. My kind of people.

    Sorry everyone - got hit with some kind of bug late last night. Kept me up until 11:30 this morning, by which point I wasn't fit for anything. Hope everyone has a good time, and I'll hopefully see everyone at the informal dinner on the 13th.

      Sorry you weren't well, Eric. I do hope we'll see you soon.

      Likewise - but I'm reasonably sure we'll make the dinner meet; assuming, of course, that there isn't a topical meet between now and then.

    I'm bringing meatballs, a vegan friendly ziti with creamy mushroom sauce and 2 versions of my orzo salad, one vegan friendly and the other with seafood. I'm also going to try to make something gluten free. P. S. >We do have a gluten free member and a few vegan/vegetarian members, so if your dish can be easily adapted, that would be great.

    Anybody like pickled beets and eggs?

  • Eric F.

    I'll be bringing a squash/zucchini casserole. My mother might want to make/bring something as well - but I'm not sure what; if she does decide to bring something I'll update.

    Also; the casserole is my own recipe and can be modified for the preference of the populace - so if you would like it to be vegetarian please let me know if you would like that, I'll be picking up the ingredients Wednesday night.

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.
