Columbia River Mensa is hosting the only 2016 Mensa Regional Gathering for Mensa Members 21 and over in the Pacific Northwest USA on April 22-24, 2016, at the Wine Valley Inn, in quaint Prosser WA. It will be centered on the famed Washington State wine industry with a possible optional side trip to the historic Manhattan Project B Reactor to illustrate the start of the area's energy research and production. Included in the event are the Spring Barrel Tasting bus wine tour on Saturday morning and a RG wine and chocolate tasting on Sat and Sun at the Inn. There will also be a few Speaker presentations.
The RG event is loosely structured with Guests getting their own lunches and dinners at the many nearby no-host restaurants. There are also several wineries, and microbreweries within walking distance from the Inn. There will be a Hospitality Room with limited snacks, wine and beer and Game Room with games and puzzles.
Cost for the event is $90 now or $100 at the door. Saturday Only registration is $85 or $95 at the door. The possible optional B Reactor tour is $30 extra. Click on the Register tab above to sign up now (we can only handle checks mailed in). Each winery charges you an additional $5 tasting fee and they offer to sell freshly cooked gourmet snacks so bring extra cash along. There are a limited number of motel rooms at the Inn and nearby so register early for accommodations directly with them. Some suggestions are provided on the Motels tab above.
