RVChat - March 2010
by Lori Norris
March – and signs of spring should be appearing any day now. February included a wonderful RG in Portsmouth, NH. Now is the time to start looking forward to Boston Mensa's Cape Cod Mini-RG. It is an unstructured weekend on the Cape, still a little chilly for swimming in the ocean, but a great time for walking on the beach and playing tourist.
Don't forget, Ron and I are hosting a regional games event in Springfield, Massachusetts the weekend of March 19 – 21. Space is limited so reserve early. If you are interested, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or check out the Mensa Region 1 Facebook group for info. If you aren't a member, why not? 170 of your friends already belong. March 31st is the registration deadline for Culture Quest® which will be held April 11th. Speaking of games, Mind Games® will be held in San Diego the weekend of April 16-18, 2010. I know some members from Region 1 will be attending this event. Ron and I went several years ago and it is definitely an event to consider. We can't make it this year, but are looking forward to the 2011 event.
The agenda for the March AMC meeting is online now, so if you have any comments on the agenda, please get in touch with me. I'm always happy to have input from other members.
Do you have friends or family members who are interested in testing, but still a little shy? Suggest they try the online version of the Mensa home test available on our website. While it does not qualify them for membership, it is a fairly accurate predictor of performance on the actual membership test.
Warning: March 31 is the end of the membership year. Do you need to renew? You may want to consider a multi-year membership. One year renewal is $59, three years is $160, five years is $260. And a life membership may be worthwhile for you. See the life membership calculator on the website. Save a tree (okay a very small tree) and renew online. I've just renewed our memberships so we can continue to enjoy the many benefits of belonging to American Mensa. The benefit that we enjoy most is the many social activities we participate in and the great conversations we have and the friendships we have made. And, of course, everyone knows that I met Ron (my husband) at an RG and, in February, we celebrated our 9th anniversary.
