RVChat - October 2009
by Lori Norris
Fox Imaging is now the new official Mensa store. Review their online catalog at www.foximaging.com. Many thanks to Joe and Nancy Zanca for their years of providing this service to us – you will be missed. Thinkgeek.com is currently running a discount for Mensas, $10 off a purchase of $30. Check out other member benefits on the AML website. Get the most out of your membership and start your holiday shopping early, buy yourself a gift – that way you know you'll get something you like.
The next AMC (American Mensa Committee, or the national board of directors) meeting is being held in Arlington, TX the fourth weekend of October and will include the annual planning meeting. The agenda should be online ay Inside AML; please take a look at it and let me know if you have any thoughts or concerns about it. Part of my job as RVC is to represent the members of Region 1 and bring their input to the national level especially as the AMC discusses the direction Mensa will be taking into the future.
September has been a busy month for us. Ron started back to school; he's a high school math teacher. We attended a half-dozen Mensa events, including a book club meeting, and hosted a games night and a dinner night. And, of course, I seem to have spend an inordinate amount of time on facebook; it goobles up time, but I enjoy it and it is a great way to keep in touch. October will be even busier, with the Leadership Development Workshop the first weekend – it may not be too late for you to attend (call me). And then there will be the CTWM RG and the AMC meeting and, hopefully, a book club, luncheon and Halloween party all on the 31st, fortunately all in the same state. So 4 out of 5 weekends in October will be dedicated to enjoying my fellow Mensans. What fun!
CTWM's MensAutumn is being held the weekend of October 16-18. This is my home group and I will be running tournaments as well as bringing a selection of home-baked goodies. My husband, Ron, will be running the Tiki bar on Saturday night and he makes great frozen margaritas.
