Gatherings

Central Indiana Mensa typically has two major events every year: our Regional Gathering in late January and our Outdoor Gathering in mid-May.

Regional Gathering:  WTF – Winter Time Fun!

January 25 – 27, 2019  Indianapolis
An indoor excursion to a hotel on the edge of Indianapolis. This activity draws people from groups all around the Midwest. With visitors from Chicago, Cincinnati, Kentucky, and Michigan, this event always has a weekend full of events designed to cater to the intelligent crowd. Previous events from the last few years include how to make and use a ‘bug-out’ bag, comedy shows, chocolate tasting, science lectures, discussions on copyright, and many more. More details on the 2019 RG will be posted soon.

OMG! Outdoor Mensa Gathering

May 17 – 19, 2019  Versailles State Park, Southeast Indiana
An outdoor excursion to a group of cabins in the woods. Reasonably described as “camping-lite,” the Outdoor Mensa Gathering (or OMG!) is a trip to the great outdoors of Indiana, with a campfire, hiking, board games, card games, guided discussions, and other activities.
Please join us for a laid-back weekend in the woods. If you’re thinking that you aren’t the “out-doorsy” type, think again! You get food, lodging, scenery, and more for only $65 per person! Saturday only is $. Kids up to age 6 are $25, and ages 6-12 are $40. There is also a per-car park entry fee. So grab your sleeping bags and towels, and join us at Versailles State Park. More details on the 2019 OMG will be posted soon.

US Mensa’s Annual Gathering

US Mensa’s AG (annual national convention) was held in Indianapolis for the first time from July 4-8, 2018. Our group hosted the event; Teresa Gregory and Jan Pfeil Doyle were co-chairs. Indianapolis native astronaut Dr. David A. Wolf was the speaker at the gala banquet. Over 1700 people attended the event that was held at the JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis.
