    The WX is beautiful, so let's set a date and time, and do it.

    When these have been set and agreed, we need to call Reno PD and set up a traffic break for a minute or two, have everyone ready, then when we get the break run out, shoot the pics, and then get out of traffic.

    Those guys down in the Sharp End think that THEY have a sign, but IIRC the Reno sign is older.

    While we're at it, how about then running up to get pics at the "Welcome to Nevada" sign on I-80?

    Not sure if RPD will do that, even for a couple of minutes. When I worked security for Silver Legacy we got fined for Aaron Lewis' tour bus blocking part of a lane while they unloaded. They don't like blocking the street unless it's for a special event. Besides that, I am down. It would be best to do in the middle of a workday for less traffic, that's if RPD won't help. If you wanna do a weekend thing I am good in the mornings Saturday's and Sunday's just let me know when.

    The difference is that we will need it for about two minutes, we will be in a crosswalk, and they routinely block that street for other folks.

    If we were looking at half an hour, no way, but such a short time should work out, if we go to them ahead of time.

    Let's come up with a firm date and time, get everyone to RSVP so we have an idea of the number of people to expect, then I'll hit the PD with it and see what happens.

    I'm in if you don't call RPD and don't pose in the street*.

    How about standing on a corner like this streetlight.

    Actually, what we want is enough people to go all the way across under the sign.

    So far the only preference is for a weekend. Let's narrow this down a bit and set our date and time. Is there a day that you CAN'T be there?

    Maybe I could come down from Idaho for this! Haven't been to Reno in a couple of years.

    The weather got ratty, and people stopped talking about it.

    The weather is better. Set a date and time, and we'll see what happens.

    I'm certainly still interested and will attend if at all possible.

    I think the best way to figure out a date is for everyone to vote YES, MAYBE or NO next to every Saturday and Sunday for the next month, whether or not they can be there. Cut and paste this list with your votes, then it will quickly become obvious what will and won't work. If the time of day matters, mention that. Otherwise, maybe 0930 would be the right time.

    Also, if answering for more than one person, give the number.

    Anyone got a good idea on a restaurant for an OC breakfast following?

    NOTICE: I am NOT planning this. I am simply providing a tool for whoever ends up doing it, because I don't want to see this drag out until August.

    I could probably do any Sat or Sun, but I'd greatly prefer Sunday. If we do it on Saturday, I'd prefer as early as possible. If we do it on Sunday, it would need to be before 1630.

    You guys at the wide end will make us at the pointy end proud. Stole the pointy end wording idea from DVC's posting.
