RVChat - June 2010
by Lori Norris
May seems to have just flown by. We attended so many wonderful Mensa events and spent time with great friends, new and old. Boston's Cape Cod Mini-RG was a great weekend. My husband and I volunteered to cook breakfast Saturday and Sunday and enjoyed in immensely. Volunteering is always a great way to meet and talk to people, and if you are an introvert, it gives you something to keep you busy while you are making friends. Most events have some opportunities to help out. If you are planning to attend the Annual Gathering ("AG") in Detroit/Dearborn this summer, you may want to volunteer. Volunteer on the AG webpage or contact the volunteer coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Speaking of the RG, it is still not too late to register. Recently, tour listing and meal plan information has been added to the webpage.
At last year's AG in Pittsburgh, about 30 members of Region 1 went out to dinner the first day. This year, the AG begins at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday (June 30th), so I am proposing that we start early and have a Region 1 lunch. Let's meet at 12:30 in the lobby of the Hyatt. (If you don't know me, I'll be the silly one carrying yellow balloons.) We'll then head over to the Fairlane Town Center for lunch – I suggest China Town, a buffet of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Thai foods (price around $8.99). And then, let the party begin. RSVP to me at email@example.com or via the event notice on the Mensa Region 1 facebook group. [Not a member of the facebook group; now might be the time to join.]
Do you have any friends or family members who would like to join Mensa? During the month of June, there is a discount of $10 on the Mensa test. Contact your local testing/proctor coordinator to find out about test sessions.
During June, the Mensa Foundation will provide local groups with the names of scholarship winners. Your group may want to take advantage of this opportunity to garner some media coverage. If your group did not participate in the scholarship program, now may be the time to begin talking about participating next year. If you need any information, please feel free to contact me.
Are you a game player? Looking for a new game? You may want to try out some of the Mind Games® 2010 winners: Anomia™; Dizios™; Forbidden Island™; Word on the Street™ (I played this one at the Cape Cod RG and am now looking to purchase it); Yikerz!™.
See you at the AG.
