The Old Man went south this year, so
we’re bringing him back for the “I Wanna Go Where It’s Warm” Reunion Tour on
the infamous 12th Floor of the Holiday Inn at the Center of New Hampshire!

cream; international coffee; succulent shrimp; “Like Water for Chocolate”
orgy; Sexual Trivia; Lunch in Acapulco; hotel-provided pigout “luau”; boat
drinks; “tiki” pool party; gifted children’s room; movies; book sale;
auction; poker tournament; games galore; best Hawaiian shirt, wet t-shirt
and other contests; speakers, speakers, speakers (see below!); and, of
course the best beer selection EVER!
Please join us at the End of the
Universe in Manchester!
Hey, if you're still vacillating (and we all know how painful that
can be) on whether to attend Saturday's sumptuous banquet, we're in need of

, know ASAP!

Women's/Co-Ed Wet T-Shirt
Contest? In advertising the more humorous version of the wet t-shirt contest
scheduled for mainstream hours on the 12th Floor, it's come to my attention
that there might be a demand for the resurrection of a poolside women or
co-ed wet t-shirt contest. If you're interested in this, please let
the availability of interested female participants dictates whether or not
we have a poolside version, or move the Hospitality one poolside and make it

Never Been to an RG Before?
Never Been to a Mensa Event Before?
Then What Are You Waiting For?
WE NEED HELP!
This year, we
really want to involve you new folks – we know where you are because we’ve
been there ourselves when we first joined Mensa. If you’ve never been to a
Mensa event, or an RG, or have never volunteered, here’s your chance this
year! There is nothing like being part of the volunteer team to get you
into the heart of things instantly. Don’t let the fact that you’d know no
one keep you away – come help us and we will guarantee that you know at
least five new friendly people before Registration opens that Friday! We’ll
put you to light work, you’ll have fun, and there’s no better social
icebreaker than being a volunteer on team along with the great regulars from
previous years. Sign up with Lynn at the RG Registration table.
