Oct. 28th - Oct. 30th 2016

 

Boston Mensa had its 50th birthday last year so the Chapter subsidized the event for this special destination RG. Boson Mensa had so many people say that they would like to return there that the Chapter will subsidize another year at the same venue. What? Yes, it is true. YAY! Mark your calendars for October 28th - 30th because we are again going to howl again at Great Wolf Lodge in Fitchburg, MA.

 

Like last year, we will have an entire convention center (7 rooms) to ourselves. They will be used for all of our usual activities like games, games tournaments, Mah Jongg instruction, two speaker tracks, paper puzzles, raffle, costume party, karaoke, adult coloring books, the Mensa Boutique, meals, and of course, Hospitality. All meals and snacks (Some additional snacks will be added this year) will be furnished by the hotel and are included in the registration fee. This year the breakfast on Saturday will be a hot buffet served at the Lodge Wood Fired Grill restaurant. Partygoers will be issued 4 tickets that can each be exchanged for a beer or a glass of wine throughout the weekend at the Lodge Bar (Right beside the Conference Suite). After that, the bar will be open for cash sales. Several other cash bars are available throughout the resort. If you have a room at the resort, any purchases made anywhere at the resort can be charged to your room by simply showing your bracelet with microchip. (This same microchip is also your room key.) There is no restriction on moving about the entire resort with drinks in hand as long as they are in Lodge issued plastic cups. Grab a drink and sit by the pool or hot tub if you like.


Great Wolf Lodge (https://www.greatwolf.com/new-england) offers great features for our partygoers who stay at the resort: Water Park with rides appropriate for children of all ages, Fitness Room, Ropes Course, Game Arcade, 4D Movie, Restaurants, Snack Bars, Hot Spa, modified candlepin bowling, and much more. Since this is a family resort, the activities and snack bars at the Lodge close by 10PM. All rooms have 2 Queen beds and a pull out couch, microwave, and small refrigerator. Maximum occupancy in the rooms is 5 people. Rooms can be reserved now and will still cost $129.00 (The same as last year!). Rooms are guaranteed until October 20th. If the hotel has available rooms after that, they will be added to our block, as needed. There will be an additional charge of $19.99 per night when the room is booked but the fee will be subtracted when RG goers check in at the hotel. Our group booking code is: 1610BOSTON.

 

Note: Mensans  and their guests staying at the resort will have free use of the Water Park, Ropes Course, Hot Spa, and Fitness Area. A nominal fee is charged for the other activities.
