    This was soooooo much fun. It was the first event I was able to attend through the association and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The presentations were great and informative and the viewing afterward was really fun. I especially enjoyed getting to see Saturn again and seeing a few pairs of double stars. Thank you!! You will definately see me again!

    A surprise family visit came up this Saturday and they want to come. That means I would be bringing 5 people total, and that's including myself. To RSVP, it only gives an option of 2 other guests. What should I do?

      Taylor, I haven't seen anywhere on the website where it's restricted at the Olana site, so I'd have to say just bring them. The more the merrier. I think that's a restriction that Meetup installed not anything we actually put in. Ken

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.
