    This was a great time. It was good meeting new people. I felt like I worked at the shoe department at Target.

    Thanks, but I'm more appreciative of all of you who took a chance and decided to try out this HandsOn event. It was great seeing everyone again and good to meet Wendy F. and Jason... next time hope we'll get to actually have a conversation ;-)

    Had a blast! Thank you, Ellen for assembling the CFT team. I must say that HandsOn really his it together- the entire Stand Down event seemed impeccably organized, and much good was done.

    FYI those of you who are members of HandsOn should also sign up for this event on their website. Wendy Rabinowitz - I signed you up so you don't need to (hope you don't mind that I did that, thought I'd save you the trouble)

    If you're not a member I will email your name to the HandsOn leader for our event so you'll be on the sign-in sheet.

    Never mind, I see it now... Duh!

  • Marni T.

    I'm only seeing times from 8:30 to. 11:45am? I actually signed up for the volunteer check in at 7:00am, and I don't know if I can do two things that close together. Sorry if I'm being dense and missing something here. :(

  • Wendy R.

    4 hours is a long time. I don't know if I want to be there that long. I will try to talk Dale into coming. I don't think I have a red shirt.

    January 16, 2013

    • Ellen

      No problem, you can leave whenever you need to. For the shirt, maybe something with red in the pattern or pink? If not don't worry about it.

      January 16, 2013

  • Ellen

    Please remember to note in your RSVP if you won't be able to stay the full 4 hours. Thanks!

    While you're welcome to wear CFT or other freethinking gear please make sure you wear a RED (or sort of red) SHIRT :-)

    This should be a busy, fun event!!

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.
