If you're new to MENSA you might be misled by the tongue-in-cheek name of this event. Don't let that keep you from joining us on the first Friday of each month at 5:30. The truth is, we drink up and relax after a hard week at work or play (for the retired folks). Some order dinner, others just enjoy the company and a couple of drinks. We meet at Tim's Cajun Kitchen on Jordan Lane. The event is open to all members and their families. Hope to see you there!

The September FS&M will be hosted by Brent and Linda Graves at their home, located at 110 Timberlake Dr, Ardmore, AL. Any food in the house is likely to be healthy stuff, however, you are welcome to bring snacks and drinks of your choosing.
Of course, if you have a stapler, you might want to bring it along.
"FS&M" is our affectionate term for assembling the NORBAMENSA newsletter. The pages get folded, stapled and labeled. No experience necessary, free training, and you get the scoop early, along with another opportunity for interesting chatter.
October Dinner Meeting
Our speaker this month will be David Hitt. David will be giving a presentation on the "Skylab", an underappreciated jewel of American space-flight, often overshadowed by the moon landings before it. In his presentation, "Everything I Really Needed To Know About Mars I Learned From Skylab", David will talk about why Spacelab may hold the key to spaceflight and life on Mars.
Don't Forget Your White Elephants!
Don't forget to bring your White Elephants to the dinner meeting. These are items you no longer treasure, but think someone else will. Items are brought in bags and numbers are assigned to names and the fun begins as random numbers are called. The most popular items are books and magazines - Mensans never have enough to read!
Local group members usually schedule one or two opportunities for our members to join together at local restaurants for dinner on Wednesdays. For obvious reasons, they are referred to as "Let's Eat, Huntsville" and "Let's Eat, Madison." Both provide great atmospheres for enjoying the company of fellow Mensans.
