    Sal, I'm sorry to hear that you had trouble getting in. I personally stopped by the 36th st. location at Noon, and confirmed with the Lobby attendant that she would be there all day, even though the left door was unlocked. According to Jeffrey you were the only registrant who didn't check in, so thankfully, difficulty getting in wasn't a wide spread problem. I will email you directly to discuss what can be done for your personal situation. In the future we'll also send out an emergency contact #

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.
