RVChat - February 2009
by Lori Norris

Happy February:  Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, Presidents’ Day, spring break and snow, snow and more snow!  And of course, the New Hampshire Regional Gathering is being held on Friday, February 13 through Sunday, February 15.  New Hampshire throws a heck of a party and I hope to see you there.  Check out their website for more information.

The 2008 Mensa Testing Day in October resulted in 1,272 people being tested nationally.  Three Region 1 groups were in the top 20 groups with the highest number of prospects tested.  Congratulations Greater New York Mensa (#2), Connecticut/Western Mass Mensa (#9), New Hampshire/Maine Mensa (#15) and Boston Mensa (#17).  Thanks to all the volunteers who made Testing Day a success across the region.

Know any friends, co-workers, relatives or complete strangers who are interested in qualifying for Mensa through prior evidence review?  Mensa is rolling back the prior evidence fee from $40 to $25, from now until June 30, 2009.  To see a partial list of accepted scores, please go to http://www.us.mensa.org/scores.

CultureQuest® XX is approaching.  The 2009 CultureQuest® will take place on Sunday, April 19th.  Check out AML’s website for rules and registration forms.  Registrations can be made until March 31, 2009.  Maybe your local group could make it to the Top 20 and win money for your local group.  On April 19th, Mensan teams of up to five members gather across the U.S. and Canada for this 90 minute event testing cultural literacy, with questions ranging from film to politics, from literature to geography, music and history.

For advance planning, Mind Games® will be held in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky the weekend of April 24 through 26.  Ron and I attended Mind Games® in 2007 when it was held in Pittsburgh.  We had such a good time.  That year there were 59 games to be tested, if I recollect clearly.  We were required to play 30 of those games during the weekend and some of the other ones looked good so we played them as well.  I don’t think I’ve ever been in a more intense game playing environment.  If you’re into board games and trying new ones, check this out on the AML website or ask me for more details.

Have you registered for the Pittsburgh AG yet?  While the primary hotel is filling up fast, the overflow hotel is less than a ten-minute walk away.
