Oct. 22th - Oct. 24, 2021

NOTE: After consultation with the ExComm, the RG committee has decided we will be taking the following precautions due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic: All attendees must be completely vaccinated against COVID-19 or must have received a negative result from a PCR test administered no earlier than Tuesday October 19th. In additional, all attendees must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose at all times while in the Convention Center (unless they are actively eating or drinking).

Please bring proof of vaccination (photographs are acceptable, as long as your name is clearly visible) or a copy of a negative PCR test given no earlier than the 19th. If you cannot comply with these requirements, you may request a full refund of your registration fee with no penalty by the end of the day on Friday, October 15th. After that, full refunds are available only if you are suffering from COVID symptoms, have failed a PCR test, or have been exposed to a COVID-positive individual, as per CDC guidelines.


Mark your calendars for WICKED GOOD! 2021 - October 22rd - 24th because we are again going to howl again at Great Wolf Lodge in Fitchburg, MA.  We are returning to the Lodge for our 57rth birthday party with only a $6 room rate increase since 2015! Registration rates will be the same as the last 5 years! (BTW, this is made possible because Boston Mensa absorbs some of the costs.) Bring your kids, GWL celebrates Halloween all during the month of October.

 

Like the previous years, 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, adult coloring books, meals, and of course, Hospitality. All meals and snacks  will be furnished by the hotel and are included in the registration fee. Saturday's breakfast will again be a hot buffet served at the resort's, Lodge Wood Fired Grill restaurant (Come early when there is usually no line to get in).

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 party goers who stay at the resort: Water Park with rides appropriate for children of all ages, Fitness Room, Game Arcade, 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 $135.00 (plus taxes.). Rooms are guaranteed until October 8th. If the hotel has available rooms after that, they will be added to our block, as needed. There will be an additional resort fee when the room is booked but the fee will be subtracted when RG attendees check in at the hotel. Our group booking code is: 2110BOSTON.

 

Note: Mensans  and their guests staying at the resort will have free use of the Water Park and Hot Spa. The RG Chair will also have a few passes for free use of the Exercise Room. A nominal fee is charged for the other activities.
