Gatherings

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

Regional Gathering:  WTF – Winter Time Fun!

We decided not to hold our RG in 2023 because of lingering concerns about communicable diseases–we would feel awful if we unknowingly held a super-spreader event! Similarly, we did not hold our RG in 2021 or 2022 because of the COVID pandemic. We hope to be back in 2024!  In the meantime, consider attending our Outdoor Mensa Gathering May 19-21, 2023 (see below)!

Questions? Please email Gatherings Chair Teresa Gregory.

Outdoor Gathering:  OMG – Outdoor Mensa Gathering!

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.

May 19-21, 2023

Join Central Indiana Mensa 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 $45. 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 in the group camp.

American Mensa’s Annual Gathering

The Annual Gathering is American Mensa’s national convention. It’s typically held the first week in July and moves around the country from year to year. The largest gathering of Mensans anywhere, the American AG started as a small, two-day meet-and-greet in New York City in 1963. The event now spans five days and features a sprawl of talks, games, and entertainment unlike any other. Click here for information about the 2023 AG in Baltimore from July 5 – 9.

The AG 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.
