    I totally missed this event on the calendar. I had signed up to volunteer at sCaLe expo over the weekend. Would love to participate in the next round.

    Hey folks,
    The kickoff party is Friday night at 5pm at The Green House, and that's when you'll hear what it's all about and meet everyone. Appetizers are provided and drinks are happy hour pricing. Then on Saturday we'll have a free breakfast at 9:30am at We Labs, then start getting down to business at 10am sharp. Lunch is provided :-). We'll work through the afternoon and end with a "show and tell" of sorts. Keep in mind that this is collaborative, and we'll need all types of skills from writing and excel-style data entry to design and programming. If you care about our great city you should come and embrace this great project!

    Here's a flyer you can pass around or post: http://bit.ly/1l2XvJd
    And here's the Facebook event, which you can invite your friends to: http://on.fb.me/1l30fX5
    Be thoughtful about who to invite... we don't want to spam people. But we absolutely do want to draw a good mix of Long Beach residents.

    See you tomorrow~

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.
