Upcoming Regional Events
by Andrew Heffernan

In the last couple of days you have received your Mensa Bulletin in the mail. Inside this issue there were several pictures of Mensans in Boston, MA as they attended the Annual Gathering. Many of you were among the 2400+ attendees. Today I wanted to share some information about some Regional Gatherings in the area. Smaller in scale, and still loaded with interesting speakers, intellectual conversation, games and food. Regional Gatherings get their name because generally, for a weekend event people will drive to the event. But this is not always the case. We have had members from Canada, Arizona, California, Florida, Texas, Europe and more attend these wonderful events. They are open to all Mensa members and their guests. No matter where you might call home.

This fall there are three such Regional Gatherings. RechaRGe in Albany, NY. Wicked Good in Boston, MA and Mensautumn in Mystic, CT. You can find the information below.
