Mamma Melina

Lunch won!  I hope the 24th works for most people who can come.  In addition, I have also made the time at 1pm so the church-goers have time to go to church early (or on Saturday night) and then enjoy a nice Italian lunch!

    Please invite me to any thing Italian. I am in the Seattle area from June- mid September. I speak two words of Italian. Maybe three.

    I found the lunch a bit pricey to do often. But the people were very fun and would perhaps like to meet again sometime say, perhaps at a coffee shop. Or even another place for lunch. Right now I don't have any ideas. But when I have one I'll send. Thanks for an enjoyable lunch to everyone.

    Hi everyone. Unfortunately that date won't work for me as I'll be away from Seattle. I'm looking forward to meeting you at another get-together.

    Almost any Sunday lunch is good for me ...but....I may be a bit mature (senior) for this group. Would you mind advising age group people are?

    February 28, 2013

    • Allison

      Like Catha posted, this group has every adult age range. Feel free to join us anytime! I haven't met a displeasing person yet.

      March 5, 2013

  • guido t.

    any evening (dinner) except thursday&saturday

    March 2, 2013

    • Allison

      I'll keep this in mind for the future. Perhaps someone will be willing to host a Friday night dinner for the group? if anyone is interested in hosting a dinner, please email Walter or directly to my email. Grazie!

    March 2, 2013

    I can't do your proposed dates - 17th or 24th - so I'll catch you
    next time. Looking forward to it.

    March 1, 2013

  • Catha

    I can do either lunch or dinner on Sunday, but not dinner on Thursdays. And, Kay, you aren't too senior for this group because I am a part of the group!

    I will be out of town for 2-3 wks moving out of my house in Ashland so won't know until the last minute if I can come or not.

    March 1, 2013

  • Allison

    mi dispiace, I meant March 17th or 24th, not the 23rd. :-)

  • Allison

    I looked at the sundays for march and the sundays I can host lunch (if lunch is the majority) is ideally March 17 or 23rd. any thoughts, likes or dislikes? If dinner wins out, it most likely be on a Thrusday 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.
