Gatherings

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

US Mensa’s Annual Gathering

(national convention) will be held in Indianapolis July 4-8, 2018 for the first time. Our group is chairing the event and will be heavily involved in the planning and running of the convention. Join us for speakers, tours, special events, 24/7 hospitality and more! If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact either of the co-chairs: Teresa Gregory (ag18tg (at) yahoo.com) or Jan Pfeil Doyle (ag18jpd (at) gmail.com).

Regional Gathering:  WTF – Winter Time Fun!

January, 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 under the theme “WTF-Winter Time Fun” include how to make and use a ‘bug-out’ bag, comedy shows, chocolate tasting, science lectures, discussions on copyright, and many more.
Please note: Because the Mensa Annual Gathering will be in Indianapolis in July 2018, we won’t be having a Regional Gathering in 2018. Check back in late 2018 for information on our January 2019 RG.

OMG! Outdoor Mensa Gathering

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 $55 per person! Saturday only is $35. 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.
Please note: Because the Mensa Annual Gathering will be in Indianapolis in July 2018, we won’t be having an Outdoor Gathering in 2018. Check back in early 2019 for information on our May 2019 OG.
