The deadline for entering the RAM Writing Contest has been extended to January 4, 2020!
We’ll award prizes for the best stories at the Annual Gathering. So, gather your words and give us your fiction, your non-fiction, anything you’d like to share in the Richmond Area Mensa Writing Contest. Send in your best 1,500 words, but be sure to follow these guidelines:
Our annual gathering will be on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 11am to 4pm in the Brunswick Room on the 3rd floor of the Madison Building at the Virginia Crossings Hotel.
There will be snacks and non-alcoholic drinks in the Brunswick Room throughout the event and we will break from 12 noon to 1pm for a buffet lunch at the Glen Restaurant (1st floor of the Madison Building). If we have more attendees than allowed in the Brunswick Room, we will be moved to a larger room, possibly in the Jefferson Building (this will be communicated as we get closer to the event date).
After lunch, member Andrew W. will present a talk titled The Importance of Critical Thinking.
Possible additional activities are in the works and will be communicated on Facebook, the website and via email as they are finalized.
RSVPs are due via email to RichmondAreaMensa@gmail.com by January 4th, 2020.
