RVChat - June 2008
by Lori Norris

Remembering the month of May.  We had a great Leadership Development Workshop (LDW) to start the month in Rhode Island which 38 members from around the region attended.  From reading the evaluations, it appears that we had something for everyone.  I hope to have another LDW in 2009 hosted by Mensa of Northeastern New York.  My only complaint was that everybody ate the healthy fresh fruit and vegetables so we had leftover chocolate and snack foods but, never fear, Boston’s Cape Cod Mini-RG was the following weekend so nothing went to waste.  And speaking of the Cape, it was a pleasant restful weekend.  I even dipped my toes into the salt water, invigorating – okay, it was cold!!

Also in May, my law firm had a “reorganization” and reorganized all the employees out of a job.  So I am currently out of work and my husband, a teacher, is off for the summer.  What to do?  Instead of flying to the Denver AG, we plan on driving (about 1900 miles one-way) and seeing some of the country along the way.  We’ll camp in a few national parks and hope to utilize the SIGHT program for suggestions along the way.  Fortunately, my son will keep the yard under control but I don’t think we’ll be planting a garden so come this fall I’ll probably be having pepper withdrawal.  I will, of course, remain in touch via e-mail assuming that we can find some wireless accessible sites along the way.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to send some photos to the Region 1 webpage.  When I was in junior high school, my family took a three week trip from western Pennsylvania through the west.  I spent a good part of that trip as one of four kids crammed in the back seat and, oh yeah, the air conditioning broke near Chicago.  The upcoming trip is looking a little bit less crowded and I get to ride up front.  We’ll be seeing the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, San Francisco, St. Louis, Yosemite, Mount Rushmore, and many more attractions.  Do you have a favorite spot?  Let me know.

Speaking of the AG, it’s not too late to register.  About 1,500 people are registered as of now and more to come.  Check out their webpage (www.ag2008.us.mensa.org) for program details.  Over 290 sessions are planned ranging from science to humor and everything in between.  Interested in the workings of Mensa, attend the AMC meeting, the Annual Business Meeting and/or some of the dozens and dozens of LDW sessions scheduled.  It’s shaping up to be a heck of a party.  Hope to see many Region 1ers at the AG.  I will be hosting a Region 1 Meet & Greet on Thursday, July 3rd from 7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.  Stop by and see who else from the region made it to the AG.
