DATE CHANGE Sock-Mas Spectacular! (The Christmas party)

On a December night 2,012 years ago, three blokes gave one little homeless bloke some socks. Now, we honour this by giving each other socks every year, and as the SockMob we have a duty to ROCK OUR SOCKS WITH BELLS ON! (*Party).

Because it is tradition to spend this joyous day in the company of a large turkey (or turkey-shaped vegetables for those so-inclined), we shall be holding our Sock-Mas party on Monday 10th December. We will be heading to Firebox Cafe: http://fireboxlondon.net/

Firebox 106-8 Cromer St London

WC1H 8BZ (according to TFL is 9 minutes walk from Kings X)

which we have booked from 7-10.

There will be skills required in party-decorating, skills required in pre-party mobbage, and skills required in party - state your skills below!

We will need pre-mobbers to meet at 6.30pm (ie HALF AN HOUR EARLIER THAN NORMAL) at the usual spots in the following locations: Waterloo, Victoria, Strand, Old St - and a few people to help set up the venue in Cromer St, also from half six. Please sign up below or add preferences to your RSVP :)

Flyers are printable from the Facebook page or can be sent to you by email if you'd like to give some out in your general life :)

    Hi, Lovely people, quick card update. I have made 50 to bring along this evening (I have another 30 for my Victorian peeps, those who I know won't be coming tonight because they bed down early, and for any newcomers that appear). Please feel free to take and write them for the homeless friends attending this evening, and the rest can be divided between walk leaders for the rest of the pre-Christmas mobbings this week and next.

    If you have more people on the route than there are cards, then let me know, and I can make up some more to bring along on Thursday's mobbing ready for next week's (if you know what I mean :-D ).

    See y'all tonight x

    May not be doing the pre-mob, but can someone please make sure they go to Marguerita, the Big Issue seller at Victoria (she's inside the hoarding at the HSBC...you kind of have to double back on the route because of all the work going on (this is in case no-one familiar with the route recently is around there for this). Ta ever so x

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.
