Lots of fun Friday! Following registration, the day was filled with the laughter of old friends and new alike. Card and board games were enjoyed by many and puzzles were pieced together into the wee hours of the morning.
SATURDAY – 27th
Activities and conferences!
Very interesting seminar given by H. Stanley Jones covering the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Upon completion of the MBTI worksheet and further analysis, Mr. Jones will personally email the results to seminar attendees.
Bob Tutleman’s Sing-a-long!
Really enjoyed Bob Tutleman’s Sing-a-long. As always, it was a great performance! Thanks, Bob!

Again, more games! Games are a big part of AGs and RGs!
Sunday – 28th
The day was filled with games and shared fun, discussions, and testing applicants for Mensa. RGs and AGs are a time to make new friends. The American Mensa Firehouse was well represented! I personally counted 9 members in attendance. The ‘award’ for the farthest traveling Mensan in attendance goes to… Laura Ingram, who flew in all the way from Indonesia! Congrats!
Two Firehouse members are shown below.

Later in the evening, several of us Mensans went to Toucan’s Tiki Lounge to see the “Drag Revue”. If you have to ask…
Anyway… there has to be a punch line in there some where… “10 geniuses walk into a gay bar…” Yeah, I need to work on that one.
Monday – 29th
The end has come, as all things must. Time to say our goodbyes and fond farewells. Until we meet again…
